“Great!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2013

We had 4 nights in Honolulu, went here on 3 of them - ate twice and just had a beer on the other occasion. Pleasant atmosphere, good service, great food and live music - what's not to like? It also helped that the place was only a short walk from our hotel. Our first visit was the evening we arrived, after a long, tiring journey from UK. We just wanted a beer and something light to eat, so decided to share a plate of pork nachos - huge! Very tasty, but a real struggle to eat so much, even between 2. We liked the look of the other food, but the portions were too big for us at that time. When we went back to eat again, we just had the fish nachos because we knew they'd be more than adequate - they were! My wife enjoyed the place so much, she bought the t-shirt.

“Location and food yes, service slow start”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2013

Had breakfast this morning at LuLu's. We were seated right away but then waited in excess of 10 minutes before anyone even brought us water. When our timid waitress did arrive we ordered water, coffee ans two breakfasts. It was another 5 minutes before our water arrived and another 5 for the coffee. Water and coffee should be brought immediately in the morning.

The setting is spectacular as we were seated on the railing facing Waikiki beach. The portions were nice sized (not skimpy) and the quality was solid though breakfast is hard to mess up. I had the bacon and egg breakfast and ($10) ordered corned beef hash as my included side dish. The has was shredded corned beef laid on top of traditional home fried potatoes. It was very good. My wife had scrambled eggs and sausage with not extras ($7). We were both full when done. We enjoyed 3 cups of coffee as we lingered over the view and did not feel rushed.

Aside from the rough start the experience was good. It is important to note that a Danish couple was seated after we arrived and they received both attention and service almost immediately so the service can be good.

Would I return? Probably will do happy hour there later today!

“Great meal and atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2013

Our hotel recommended LuLu's and we were not disappointed. Everyone's food was delicious, especially the teriyaki bite appetizer (which was enough for a meal) and my margarita. Service was top notch and the view was fantastic. We loved LuLu's and were sad we didn't make it back for another meal.
