My wife and I came here with another couple for dinner. The last time we were in this space was when we stayed in the old Halekulani Hotel on our honeymoon nearly 45 years ago. We loved the new hotel and Orchids—so nicely done and...More

Very pleasant outdoor seating, along Waikiki Beach. Mediocre food and average service. Not up to Halekulani standards. Nice music in the evenings.

Whether it’s breakfast, lunch or dinner the food is fresh and served with great care. Staff are observant but not hovering. They can’t do enough to please. It’s one of Honolulu ‘s top restaurants and rightly so. Highly recommended.
