    Food is just ok. “Catch of the day” was overcooked. Banana pudding is average. Beer selection is good. Environment is not bad. Sitting is comfortable. I would try other places at the same price.

    Delicious food with a retro cool surf vibe just outside of the craziness of Waikiki. Everyone (including two tweens) had trouble deciding what to eat so we ordered almost everything — including the whole snapper. Wish we had tried it before our last night on Oahu because we would have gone back.

    Quite a few years ago the owners of the now closed Town Restaurant opened Mahina and Sun. Town was Hawaii’s first farm to table restaurant. Mahina continued that program but added more unique and creative fish dishes plus others. When the pandemic arrived Mahina was forced to drastically cutdown on most of their special dishes. Because of that my wife and I have not been back for over three years. Last night we returned. Mahina and Suns is BACK with their trademark farm to table super unique and creative dishes. There isn’t another restaurant on Oahu in this category. Plus a superb waitstaff and great ambiance.

    Our meal was absolutely delicious. The restaurant vibe was very cool, a little retro - we had a lot of fun. My husband and I did the family style meal, which was a show stopper and super yummy. Each of our kids (teens) got their own meals and raved about them the whole time. It was a fun, enjoyable family dinner; we all shared and tasted everything. The drinks were great, our waitress was amazing. This is a gem set back just a few streets from the main Waikiki strip. I would highly recommend you check it out. We’ll definitely be back next time we are in Honolulu.

    Great ambiance! We had a table overlooking the pool so we could hear the live music. Kale salad was delish, dressing was so good. I will crave this salad. The Viva La Vida cocktail is soooo good but wish it was larger. Enjoyed ourselves so much that we didn’t take any photos.

    A real hidden gem just a few blocks from the busy streets of Waikiki beach. We sat pool side and were entertained with live music throughout the evening. The service was top notch and my wife & I opted for the ‘feast’ which could not compare to anything we have had in the past. All plates were tasteful and original; matching the uniqueness of this restaurant. Would definitely return for dinner or drinks whether on a date or with friends.

    I came here with my family to celebrate my parents' wedding anniversary, and we ordered the family feast. It was a little pricey but 100% worth the extra spend. Every course was amazing, and the service was fantastic. The food standouts were the a'u crudo, this insane purple potato and/or yam dish that I didn't see on the menu (so garlicky, buttery, crispy, soft, yummy, all the things), and of course the whole fried fish (we had 2.5 lb pink snapper, which was SO good). On top of everything, the ambience was perfect. We sat near the pool, and there was singer/guitarist playing covers with a Hawaiian flair-- lovely.

    This place has a cool retro vibe with outstanding food. Loved the open air concept. The live music was a really nice additive. But what was extra great was our kids could order from the lanai menu (simple, casual food) while my husband & I could order from the dinner menu. Everyone went away happy! And we had the Bastille specials - EXCELLENT.

    The place had a great vibe and the service was excellent . i was however dissapointed by a few of the entrees and suggestions made . The shrimp carrot risotto was awful . It did not even taste like risotto and it was bitter. Additionally, small servings and somewhat over priced. The cut pasta dish was excellent as well as the tuna tar tar

    Food was way better than I expected. The menu always looked good to me and I knew I would like the food but the food was A M A Z I N G. I have been thinking about the ragu pasta ever since. The drinks are on the pricey side so for a friends get-together it adds up quickly. With that being said, they are tasty and cute. The ambiance is what really stands out, it would be a great for a date night, it was ideal for my dinner with friends because we were more in the lounge area and were able to feel relaxed and catch up. I think because we were in the lounge area, service was a little slower but we weren’t ignored, just ready to order every time the server stopped by. I recommended this spot to everyone since. I can’t wait to go back.
