Had the 6 course New Year's Eve prix fixe dinner on New Year's Eve. Food was good but not great, and of course very expensive, but it was New Year's Eve so we expected that. Just wished we felt like we got what we paid for. Ambiance was very nice as the Moana Surfrider decorated the courtyard under the banyan... More

We have been to The Veranda several times for afternoon tea and/or lunch. All but once we had great service and the food was always excellent.

We weren't very hungry, so we ordered just the crab cakes and a bit of wine. The service was wonderful and the crab cakes were to die for. The view of the 115 year old canyon tree, lit up with blue light, is incredible.

having stayed at the hotel we had a birthday meal at the Veranda. We requested a table down by the sea but were put half way along the veranda. A bit disappointing but the food was good if very expensive. Overall a good night

This is one of my favorite places in the world for high tea. A proper high tea with flavors of the island, and the spectacular ocean view make for a guilty pleasure everyone should experience. My husband and I did the tea 13 years ago when we first came to Oahu. It has not lost its charm and we enjoyed... More

Booked Christmas Brunch on the Veranda. $80US per person. (exchange rate was 72cents) Water, juices, sodas, tea, coffee included. Alcohol pay extra. Thought it was excellent value. Am paying $115 in Australia for similar. But nothing can compare to the view. Prime seating. Seated on right hand side (banyan tree side), first table from the front. Initially the 2 front... More

I love the verandah, having been here many times before on previous visits. I wanted to take my daughter there on a recent visit, so we headed there as soon as we checked in the PK hotel across the road. We had the traditional high tea and I had a champagne to celebrate being in paradise again. Service was great,... More

Lovely and amazing breakfasts, fun lunches and even a fantastic afternoon tea. All great but got sick of it after a while. The food under the tree outside was only fair. You need to eat up on the veranda. Totally different.
