We loved coming here for cocktails; also had dinner a couple of times. Their Spaghetti Bologonese is amazing.

We ate here for our first night at the Kahala and they were very welcoming. The food was great and the service was quick and professional.

So many great choices on the menu to choose from. Excellent service and an even better view! We also really enjoyed the piano music later in the evening.

From the moment we arrived we were confronted by a sea of smiling faces. Not just from staff but the myriad of guests moving around. The Verandah at the Moana Surfrider is a haven away from the hustle and bustle of the Waikiki strip. As we were seated we were greeted by a smartly dressed, sophisticated looking gentleman who introduced... More

Comfortable & beautiful lanai setting off the lobby of the hotel with live jazz music in the evenings & proper tea in the afternoons. Our favorite place to relax before & after dinner & have wine & cocktails.

Pretty decent drinks but the service was very slow. We would often not see our (or any) server for 15 minutes or longer. The atmosphere is very nice however with live piano music. They also had a very nice looking tea service in the afternoon that I was very interested in trying but didn't quite get the chance to. Maybe... More

We went there with friend's family and our family, but the restaurant is specious, so fit any occasion. Sure foods are everything always good. Kids love to visit Dolphin pool which locates next to the restaurant so good place to go with young kids. Night time is so romantic, please visit with your favorite people.

The draw for us was the live music. The night we were there the entertainer was a good jazz pianist . With a good gin and tonic and tasty bites to eat it is a perfect place to relax. Mostly tourists in the audience dressed in shorts and casual clothes . Perfect !

Relax in the romantic ambience of old Hawaii. A perfect meeting place for afternoon tea or cocktails with live jazz entertainment in the evening.

Designed in classic plantation style, The Veranda takes patrons back to another time when life was more leisurely and meeting with friends for tea and conversation was a daily affair. The comfortable lounge overlooks the Dolphin Lagoon with a choice of both indoor and al fresco seating. Large, upholstered chairs are perfect for lingering over a cocktail or just escaping with a good book, as palm leaf motifs and island-inspired furnishings transport you to that other time.

Our Afternoon Tea is a tradition, after a day out discovering Oahu. It is also a popular venue for special occasions and showers. Afternoon Tea includes your choice of Harney & Sons Tea or 100% Kona Peaberry coffee with pastries.
