Sat down around 3pm not after a big meal as dinner was just around the corner and this place was perfect for finger food. Shared a nachos but could have easily picked anything off the menu and enjoyed it. Wonderful food.

We had the dinner here on New Year's eve. I ordered the New Year special, which is a steak, while my gf ordered the other special, seafood choufun. Steak is not as good as the price. And my gf ended up having a seafood choumian. We expected it to be fried rice, not fried noodle, as stated in the menu.... More

In the last 4 years I have traveled to Hilton Hawaiian village and enjoyed Tropics Bar and Grill. The menus is limited and neither the fish & chips nor the coconut shrimp where worth stopping here. The shrimp was over cooked and tough and dry. I didn't mind it only being 4 shrimp and ordered onion rings to accompany the... More

We had Fish and chips, the order was big so we just had one order and split the order between us. There were four pieces of fish and lots of chips on our order, so we asked of a container and took the rest home and had it later.

Staying in the Hilton Waikiki Village for a week we did try to get dinner reservations twice without success. Mind you there were 17 including grandchildren. However this is a great option for breakfast or brunch and one of the on-site Starbucks is nearby if you want a real coffee. We chose the buffet that was reasonably priced but wished... More

You definitely are paying for the view. This restaurant and bar sit yards from Waikiki beach and is part of the Hilton Hawaiian Village complex. The place is always busy and the food, if a little expensive, is good. (Fish & Chips 23 dollars). The bar has a great vibe...better than the tables, I think. The drinks are super, too.... More

Stopped in for a late dinner. Had about a 1/2 hour wait, not too bad for a beach front restaurant. Had the Fish and Chips. Very very good. Not too greasy! I don't remember what type of fish. The server said it was a local caught. They had live entertainment that night. A small band with a singer, key board,... More

We kept returning because of the great food, view of the beach and excellent entertainment Sunday night by the Piranhas Brothers. Burgers and clubs were delicious. Try the kale and quinoa salad or pizzas too!

Weak drinks and subpar food. If you're staying at Hilton Hawaiian Village, it's tempting to eat in the resort, but it's worth a short walk toward Waikiki for a MUCH better experience. I had the nachos with kalua pork and they were not great. The good thing was they make their own chips, but they're fried in the oil with... More

While we were waiting for our room to be ready, we stopped in here for lunch. The food was expensive but very mediocre; poor value for the money. There were very few jvegetarian options. I settled on a veggie burger which was bland and arrived cold. My friend had fish tacos which he didn't enjoy. Our waitress seemed bored and... More
