    The Patisserie: A Patisserie / cafe

    by joanj Written Jan 6, 2004

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Well while on holiday you are allowed to pile on the lbs. !! correct ?

    Well this Patisserie has wonderful mouthwatering creamy concoctions. It does also sell bread, and sandwiches salads, etc., and you can eat outside at a few tables provided.
    But it is the cream cakes that draw the consumers.

    Favorite Dish: Neopolitan cream slice. Deeeeeeeelicious.

    they also have outlets at the Edgewater Hotel, 2168 Kalia Road. Tel. 922 - 4974, and at Kahala Mall Shopping Center, 4211 Waialae Ave. Tel 735 - 4402

    Sadly no photo of the shop, or me tucking into the creamy slice, that is just wasting good eating time to take photo's !!!

    Cultural Dancing

    by keeweechic Updated Sep 9, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There is a cultural show of dancing - Samoan Fire-Knife dance, Tahitian and of course the Hawaiian Hula. Germaine's Luau is a ‘feast’ - so much tantalizing dishes, tropical fruits etc. It’s a lot of fun. The Poi (Taro Potato) was not one of my favourites though.

    Germaines Luau

    by keeweechic Updated Sep 9, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Germaine's is reported to be the best and most authentic luau in the Pacific. You can drive yourself there or take a tour. Tables are set outside under swaying palm trees right on the beach. The show begins early evening and ends as one of those great Hawaiian sunsets slides down the horizon behind you .

    I Tried so many great restaurants

    by keeweechic Updated Sep 9, 2003

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I cannot begin to remember all the restaurants, cafe's, bars etc that we went to during our 2 months in Hawaii. Living in a hotel meant that all meals (other than breakfast) was taken at a restaurant or bought and brought back. There were a few memorable ones though.

    Orchids Restaurant at the Halekulani Hotel. The seafood is mouth watering although it is fairly expensive here.

    Ryan's Grill - The Ward Centre, 1200 Ala Moana Blvd Honolulu. known as the go-anytime order-anything restaurant. Repeat award winner for best business lunch, best bar pupus. They serve a full dinner until 1:00 a.m.

    The Banyan Veranda - They serve Breakfast, Tea (1-4:30pm), Dinner and Cocktails. On Sunday they have Brunch: 9am-1pm.
    Location: Sheraton Moana Surfrider Hotel, 2365 Kalakaua Ave.

    On our last day in Hawaii we met some friends for a champagne brunch. We were outside on the balcony looking over the sand and the ocean and a guitarist serenaded us for hours. It was just wonderful - we left about 6.00pm in time to do a few last minute things before leaving later than evening for the airport.

    Matsumotos: Shaved Ice!!!!

    by belgianwaffle Written Aug 2, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This place has the best shaved ice in the world. i never get any other shaved ice when I'm in hawaii. And if there is a line, it is worth it.

    Favorite Dish: Hmm. what are my favorite flavors? Okay... rapsberry, vanilla, melon, pineapple. Don't get rootbeer or orange or coconut. They kinda have gross aftertastes. And get it with icecream on the bottom. sooo good when the ice mixes with it. mmm baby.

    Taste of Paradise: restaurants on the north shore

    by belgianwaffle Written Aug 2, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    i'm definitely a fan of this place. it's mostly meat and they serve salad and beans with it. it's not very posh or anything. in fact, you will be eating on dressed up pic nic tables. and defintely use the bathroom before you go (gross!) but the food is sooo good.

    Favorite Dish: I always got the chicken plate although i hear the fish is good and so are the stake sandwiches. i love love loved the salad dressing they had. I should've bought a bottle!

    DA BIG KAHUNA'S PIZZA: DA BIG KAHUNA'S PIZZA

    by sargentjeff Updated Jan 13, 2003

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Best stateside pizza I've had. Best in the world is at Trianon, Naples, Italy (see my Naples page)

    It may be a little hole in the wall, but 'Kahuna's' is well worth a meal, and definitely the first restaurant I'd go to if I visit Hawaii again. That's saying a lot. don't miss it!!

    Favorite Dish: IN REALITY IT'S ALSO 'OFF THE BEATEN PATH'
    LOCALS FLOCK TO THIS PLACE.
    THEIR PIZZA IS OUTSTANDING, AND DON'T PASS UP THE GARLIC CHEESE BALLS

    Included is an excerpt from a newspaper article on the place.

    By Matthew Gray
    Advertiser Restaurant Critic


    This is the story of a young lady, Kelly Suchotzki, who learned the secret of Chicago-style deep-dish pizza. Eight years ago, she decided to go into business, launching Big Kahuna's Pizza -N- Stuffs.

    In Hawaiian, kahuna means shaman in its most formal usage. Nowadays, though, kahuna often signifies a level of expertise associated with that of a wizard, guru or, in this case, an expert or master (of pizza, that is).

    True Chicagoans rave about two things: the Cubs, and, to a lesser extent, the Malnati family's pizzeria. You can get a version of this luscious fried-crust favorite here, with local flair, flavorings and liberal doses of aloha.

    Before you get started, get an order of the garlic cheese balls.

    The most popular pizza here is 'da Big Kahuna's sumo special' that combines toppings such as pepperoni, ham, Italian sausage, Kahlua pork, Portuguese sausage, bacon, onions, mushrooms, chopped tomato and black olives.

    It's amusing that Suchotzki is a vegetarian, considering how well she treats her meats. The kalua pork and the beef brisket are done on the premises using 'the exact same preparation. It's tender and smoky, and if you ask nice, she'll even give you her recipe.

    The 'stuffs' part of the menu refers to the sandwiches ($5.95) that you definitely should try. Keep in mind that the bread is homemade and that the owner is a self-proclaimed bread lover. The large, fresh rolls really make a difference. One choice comes stuffed with corned beef, roast beef or turkey, with cheddar and jack cheese, shredded cabbage, tomato and onion, sprinkled with olive oil and vinegar. The surfer sub/grinder gives you the choice between ham and pastrami done in much the same fashion.

    Itz da bomb Brudda!!

    Everything was spectacular. The food, service and the view. We went on a Friday night had a window seat and watched the fireworks on Waikiki Beach.

    Favorite Dish: We had fish and steak. Both were great. The service was fantastic. Would rate this one of the best places we've been to.

    Lox of Bagels is my favorite...

    by sargentjeff Written Aug 26, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Lox of Bagels is my favorite Bagel shop on the island of Oahu.
    The owners and workers are very friendly.

    Favorite Dish: The bagels are outstanding. Even the cinnamon sugar bagels are outstanding, but mostly I'd go with my favorites, Poppy seed, Sesame seed, and Onion.

    The also make their own cream cheese in several flavors, including low fat cream cheese.

  • Pho Pearl: Not quite the jewel of honolulu

    by dare2d4l Written Dec 11, 2006

    Was craving my usual rice noodle, so I picked a off-the-beaten-track place to eat. The food is decent, but nothing well done. The meat could've been marinated and tenderized more.

    The food is O.K. and I know that there are other Hardrocks around the world. This is truly a nice place to relax for a while and look at Rock n' Roll memorabilia.

    Favorite Dish: Just a burger please.
