Beach side dining, live music, umbrella tables. Great food, excellent service. Somewhat pricy, but worth it.

The Halekulani is one of the hotels on Waikiki which always warrants a visit. House Without a Key is the outdoor restaurant which borders the ocean and overlooks sailboats coming and going, along with the colorful characters who walk along the Waikiki walkway (think Santa Claus in July). The restaurant has a "grill" night where you can order all kinds of fish grilled with a couple of predetermined sides. In the background, there is live Hawaiian music playing along with hula dancers and the moon and stars. The swordfish was some of the best we've had outside of Sicily! The waitress had SEVERAL tables, but still managed to take great care of us. We had a great evening and would definitely go back, especially on "grill" night.

Great location and Hawaiian feel. Share a cocktail at sunset then stay for a relaxing meal in the courtyard.

House Without a Key is located on the beach with wonderful sunset views. Every time we've been there they've had a Hawaiian band with a hula dancer. All very tasteful and serene.

This visit was no exception. The weather was perfect. The sunset was almost too good to be true and the music was wonderful.

Prices here are a little steep for us; hence, we get a couple of drinks and an appetizer to share. The quality of the food that we've had is very good.

We stopped by here twice on this trip.

We dined here twice and on both occasions had two slight concerned with our meals.

Mostly I was worried of undercooked chicken.

And the second time three family members ordered the same dish which all tasted different.

Prices are a little high but not too bad, not excellent value for money however.
