Great food, great atmosphere, great service and great views. Of course, for the prices charged, that should be expected. However, the price could have been worse. We don't often dine like this, so these restaurants can be somewhat intimidating to us, but not Roy's. Despite the "high end" nature, this place is pretty laid back. Also, the prix fixe menu really made ordering easy for us. That may have been a cop-out on our part, but like I said, we don't often dine like this, and one of our biggest concerns is "considering we don't do this often, and this is costing so much, we really don't want to order something we don't like." The prix fixe menu solved all those problems.
The portions were all basically "small plate," but we were pretty good and full at the end of the meal. And, each course was really delicious.
The two of us each had a pre-dinner cocktail (both very good, and both unique) and the four-course "prix fixe" (with one of us including the paired wines with each course). They brought us a "free" extra small course (a very nice soup). With tip and everything, it came to $180, which we thought was pretty good, especially for Hawai'i. We were prepared to pat at least $200 and thought it might easily go to $250, so we thought the price wasn't too bad.
If you are concerned about or intimidated by the really high-end pricey restaurants, Roy's is one that makes it easy (as long as you are prepared to pay top dollar). Also, Roy's is kind of a "don't miss" if you go to Hawai'i anyway. Definitely recommend this one.
