While staying at The Kahala we had the opportunity to have drinks and a quick bite to eat at The Veranda. The staff is very congenial and attentive. The menu offers a variety of choices from a regular meal to appetizers and desserts.

Sensational high tea, with exceptional service and fantastic food. Well worth trying high tea while staying at The Kahala or near by.

Unbelievably, The Veranda's tea service has gotten even better! Over the years, this has become a favorite gathering place for me and one of my mentors. Its free valet parking as well as the cool trade winds blowing through The Veranda and the hotel's lobby...More

I went there for the music (fabulous by the way) but the service was so slow and poor customer service. Even though the music was awesome, it took away from the total experience....I left very unhappy and will probably not return.

Relax in the romantic ambience of old Hawaii. A perfect meeting place for afternoon tea or cocktails with live jazz entertainment in the evening. Designed in classic plantation style, The Veranda takes patrons back to another time when life was more leisurely and meeting with friends for tea and conversation was a daily affair. The comfortable lounge overlooks the Dolphin Lagoon with a choice of both indoor and al fresco seating. Large, upholstered chairs are perfect for lingering over a cocktail or just escaping with a good book, as palm leaf motifs and island-inspired furnishings transport you to that other time. Our Afternoon Tea is a tradition, after a day out discovering Oahu. It is also a popular venue for special occasions and showers. Afternoon Tea is a delight with delicate finger sandwiches, sweet treats and carefully curated loose leaf teas.
