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

Many thanks for your review and joining us for Tea on the Veranda. We apologize for the mix up regarding your vegetarian selections. Thank you for your feedback on the service. I will personally monitor that. Please come back and see us again soon. We also have a terrific breakfast buffet and a wonderful dinner menu at the Beachhouse. 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.

This is our 4th time staying at the Moana Surfrider, and part of the reason we come back is because of the great atmosphere of the Banyan Courtyard and the Veranda. The veranda is a plantation-style porch with great views of the ocean and massive banyan tree. We haven't eaten any regular meals there, as they are a bit pricey,... More

We had a delightful dinner at this restaurant a couple of years ago so on a recent visit to Hawaii, we decided to start our trip with our first meal at the Moana Surfrider on the veranda - just delightful……not this time. Breakfast……what can they do to breakfast? Well, cold potatoes, no cream for coffee, absolutely the worst service we... More

We are sorry to hear of your disappointing experience at the Veranda. This is not the type of service that we strive to achieve. If you come back to Hawaii, please call the hotel and ask for Gary at the Veranda. I will do my best to ensure that you have a positive, memorable experience. More

The walk through the grand entrance and colonial era lobby is half the fun with a trip to the Veranda. The table seating outside to watch the sunset was excellent - not too crowded and great service. The Mai Tais were excellent - not too sweet and just the right side of strong!

I love afternoon tea, you put it on a beautiful veranda overlooking the beach it's even more spectacular! The duck prosciutto on croissant sandwich was really good (I had three)! Lastly the desserts were divine, the chocolate cups de creme was sinful! We have eaten here before for breakfast and lunch, the afternoon tea was sublime!

Once we discovered the wonderful dining, service staff, and panoramic view from the Veranda at Moana Surfrider resort we didn't want to stay away. Our first pass was after a walk along Waikiki beach. Casual seating with a drop dead gorgeous sunset view had everyone's cameras out for sunset. The next visit was lunch/tea. Tasty tea varieties followed by hearty... More

The veranda overlooks the ocean and offers a great afternoon formal tea... tiny sandwiches, a selection of specialty teas, and a variety of desserts are the focus of this tea which stems from the early beginnings of this hotel... a neat treat for a change of pace while in Waikiki

Afternoon Tea at The Veranda is absolutely the best English Afternoon Tea knock-off on Oahu and it's at the beautiful Moana Surfrider Hotel. The views are as beautiful as the place setting.
