Where are you staying? What is the food budget? What kind of food? What kind of atmosphere?

I consider Kalakaua Ave Waikiki's main strip. There are many restaurants and shops in Waikiki. And some restaurants look right on to Waikiki Beach.

Among casual restaurants "on" the beach are Duke's, Hula Grill, Shorebird, House without a key, Hau Tree Lanai, etc.

Some high class restaurants with or without beach views La Mer, Hy's Steak House, Roy's (the one in Waikiki), etc.

House Without a Key at Halekulani and get there before sunset - it has amazing food and great entertainment too.

There's literally hundreds of places in central Waikiki, all easy strolling, all on, or within a few blocks from the beach. Do you want an ocean view?

For a special meal the Hau Tree Lanai restaurants down at New Otani hotel is very elegant (~$35 entree price range). For something noisy and fun with good food Duke's is a stand-by for many.

Yes there is a main strip (actually two parallel streets) you can walk around and see what suits your fancy.

Keoni by Keo's and Keo's are two popular Thai restaurants.

Hula Grill or Dukes both at the Outrigger on the Beach would get my vote. Both are right on the beach and in the centre of all the action on Kalakaua Avenue. I've tried both many times and am looking forward to going again in a couple of weeks.

Just came back from Honolulu this week and I would also recommend Duke's.

The atmosphere is excellent and it is an open aired restaurant located right on the beach and when I was there this week, there was live music every Friday, Saturday and Sunday...I know the music started at 4 p.m. - 6 p.m. and I think there was also music there later on...great atmosphere and the food and yes the drinks were excellent!!!

If you have a chance, check out the areas just outside of Waikiki Beach...Kailua Beach, Hanauma Bay are just amazing places to visit and less than 45 minutes away by public transit.

The Halekulani Hotel has the best, most romantic restaurant on Oahu in La Mer. Downstairs and less formal is Orchids that has great food and amazing views of Waikiki and Diamond Head, across the lawn from Orchids is the House Without a Key that is a restaurant for breakfast, lunch and dinner and at night, their terrace is the best place for a mai tai and Hawaiian music and dancing.

Michel's at the Colony Surf and the HauTree Lani on the opposite end of Waikiki are great and have awesome views with great food.

Duke's is nice and downstairs is Duke's Barefoot Bar that is a great casual place.
