Spent a Saturday evening with drinks, light dinner fare, and music by a Hawaiian duo of entertainers. A delightful informal setting outside the Surfrider hotel.

A very good resturant. The evening is good as it has live music. It's outside which makes it a very atmospheric feel. The food is very good and good service.

So this little place happens to be at our hotel, the Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach. The food was so good! We had a Thai salad and a sausage sandwich with onions and peppers. Both were made with very fresh and tasty ingredients. Their Mai Tais...More

We just turned up without ever making a reservation. Remember though, the music stops at 9 and closing time is 10. Then head to shorebirds for happy hour.
