Located beachfront, close to the hotels on the Diamond Head side of Waikiki, as well as the Honolulu Zoo & Aquarium. Offers great breakfast & lunch platters in regular and Local style meals. We mainly went for breakfast as it was real close to our hotel. Nothing like sitting & enjoying your morning coffee with a stunning view of beachfront... More

Our uber driver recommended we try this place as we were staying nearby. He was right. We had breakfast there and it was way beyond what we would have expected. Of course, its hard to beat the location directly next to the beach. But the food was qite good (with a much broader menu that we would have guessed as... More

A visit isn't complete without a visit to Barefoot Beach Cafe. Waikiki beach wouldn't be the same without this awesome restaurant perched literally feet from the beach. The place is casual and clean. The food is incredibly good at a nice price. I am partial to the Loco Moco, but you will love any dish on the menus. Today I'm... More

The food is better than I expected from a little bar on the beach. I love the french toast with fruit, the coffee is good. Also came back for lunch and had grilled fish with salad-yummy. Good smoothies too. A short walk from the Aquarium, this place is worth a visit!

I generally shy away from these beach-front style restaurants that are often just over-priced tourist traps, but the Barefoot Beach Cafe was a mainstay for us while staying 9 days in Honolulu. We ate lunch there several times during our stay and tried a number of their dishes. My favorite by far was the Spicy Ahi Poke Bowl, which was... More

We stopped on our walk on the beach for this beautiful spot. Great Pork. The fish and chips were really good. Great music. Nice staff. Great prices.

The best fried fish fillets I have ever had. Not just the best at a fast food stand, but the best ever. Ordered the fish-n-chips and expected the usually fried fish fillet. The were moist, tender and flakey. Two fillets at least 8 or 9 inches long plus tender hot French fries.

I am disappointed in this place. It is a great location on the beach, run and locally owned so I like supporting but this poor. I ordered a simple poached eggs, bacon and toast. The eggs were seriously undercooked and served in a paper chip dish, the bacon was just on the tray. Worst breakfast I've had in Hawaii. I... More

Consistently good food at affordable prices. You place your order and pick it up at another window so it's not a fancy place. Live music most nights with a tip jar. Try to Friday an Saturday night BBQ. I had the swordfish and it was one of the best meals I've ever had. Whether it's a plate lunch or something... More
