Suitable restaurants (but nice) with a 15 month old toddler

Hi again all. Looking for recommendations for suitable restaurants for a toddler in a high chair. Our baby eats everything off our plates so kids menu is not a must. But must be a tolerant kiddy venue. Thanks in advance :) ;) We are staying at the Hilton Hawaiian Village so anywhere in and around there would be great or within 20 minutes walking distance.

How is the behavior? Is a "meltdown" likely? Is he/she a good napper? - Makes a big difference.

"(but nice)" is very subjective.

Maybe the nearby Wailana Coffee House?

A big step up in "nice", and cost, would be the Chart House, also nearby.

Right next door to you is the Cinnamon's Restaurant at the Ilikai Hotel. We took our 1.5 year old there a few times for breakfast and dinner, really enjoyed the food especially the breakfast. And as a bonus, the coffee shop next to it serves Aussie flat whites - a necessity when travelling with precious little ones lol!

Enjoy Hawaii!

She is not likely to melt down just makes a mess (which I always tidy to the best of my ability). :) Thanks for the tips! Will check those places out!!

And I guess what I meant by nice is not a crappy chain or fast food/greasy type food.

I'm a regular at Cinnamons and recommend it for kids. The Tropics Bar and Grill at the HHV was good, just ate there yesterday, I didn't see any high chairs but it is nice/casual and I'm sure they can handle kids. My favorite in the area is Goofy Cafe And Dine. Nothing to do with Disney. It is a one of a kind open air beach house atmosphere and has a more healthful menu. I also recommend the '100 Sails' breakfast buffet at the Hawaii Prince Hotel. I've been there and have seen families with kids of all ages.

There are very few places that you can go in Waikiki that isn't "kid friendly."

I agree with Fishy above.

I really like the deli at the HHV. Nice breakfast.

Food and drink at the HHV are just short of robbery! - Walk a little ways and you'll be very glad you did~~~~~~~~~~~

@ alandroberta you are right about the resort pricing at HHV. But HHV is not a budget property. I’d compare it to Disney World resorts or even Aulani. High priced but a premium product with outstanding service. Our brunch yesterday included a $19 veggie burger. It was the perfect burger and the hospitality and ambience were great. We had a short staycation there again and we are always treated like VIPs.

" a $19 veggie burger"? - Did it have truffles in it? LOL~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We just stroll around the lagoon to the Harbor Pub for their $7.50 burger. Most excellent! And we always get great service.

But to each their own,
