So ive been to most of the top rated restaurants in Hawaii but Chef Mavro takes the cake. The "April In Paris" tasting menu was marvelous! Im still dreaming about the foie gras parfait. Ambiance was great and cant wait to go back with my wife. The wine pairings were also fabulous.

We would dine at Chef Mavro's every time we visited Honolulu. We had some really amazing, creative meals there. Once we had a preparation of moi fish that was simply mind-blowing! For our last two visits the dishes were just very good and the portion size had shrunk down to an unacceptable level. The dishes, while creative and tasty, were... More

Chef Mavro is a "must dine" restaurant in Honolulu and I definitely recommend his signature dish, Onaga in salt crust. Not only is it absolutely delicious, the presentation is beautiful. I personally like the tasting menus with wine pairings. Each course meticulously prepared. An awesome experience for a special occasion and just as satisfying for an impromptu night out with...

We had dinner here with some friends and it was a pleasant experience. The service was very attentive and as expected for a high end restaurant. We had the chef's tasting menu and it was very nice. It's been a while since we last had dinner there and I think the former ala carte menu was a better alternative than... More

One of the best meals I had while spending 10 days in Hawaii. Everything from the service to the food to the presentation was AMAZING!!!! The tasting menu is fantastic.

Her parents, who live in Japan, had never been to Hawaii, her father had never travelled by airplane before,... More
