“What a shame.”
Reviewed 7 August 2013

We were charmed inside with tales of top class seafood. Paella was good. Our youngest daughter was beaten by the size of her pizza but a box appeared so that she could take it away and finish it later, nice touch. Very good Spanish Sauvignon. Shame our waiter couldn't care less about us, too busy watching for new customers to pay attention taking our order, no eye contact! He managed to upsell a sea bass from my wife's choice of tuna, saying it was a house special and she wouldn't be disappointed, she was. It had bones aplenty despite his best efforts to fillet. Other staff were very friendly and proffered free melon liqueurs. One bad Apple.........We won't be back.

“Save your money!”
Reviewed 28 July 2013 via mobile

Went to this restaurant last night. It was bad! Ordered a mojito...despite sending it back once it didn't get any better. It's the first I've ever had with little alcohol, even less mint and made with lemon, not lime. Tuna and tomato salad had no tomato so that went back too. The Caesar salad had half the ingredients missing. The music was too loud to hold a conversion. It was one error after another. We couldn't wait to get the bill and leave.Table behind us ordered expensive meals and when they came out the staff didn't have a clue what dishes they were holding so theirs was a disaster too. Walk past it and try one of the many other places on offer.

“Terrible service ,avoid.”
Reviewed 23 November 2012

It's difficult to write a review about a resteraunt you've not eaten in but hear goes .

We travelled to costa adeje in November of 2012 with a group of friends , after a couple of days we booked a table at the Hawai for 6 people .We arrived at 8.30 to be told by the girl who attracts people into the resteraunt that we hadn't booked a table !

One of our group pointed out the waiter we had booked the table with , earlier in the day .At that point the girl and the waiter had a shouting match in front of a resteraunt full of people !
The girl came back to us ,not to apologise or offer an alternative ,just to say it wasn't her fault ,and nothing could be done .We left then to find a meal elsewhere .

Surprisingly it didn't end their ,the following evening we were walking past the Hawai when the same girl approached us again ,intending to continue the argument ,it wasn't her fault everybody else was to blame !

The food could be good in the Hawai ,who knows ,but the service and customer care is appalling ,Basil Fawlty and Manuel would feel at home in this place !
