Dine With a View

Food, Fun & After DarkOahu

What better way to combine two of the best things about O‘ahu: gorgeous scenery and ‘ono (delicious) food? Here are a few suggestions for DINING WITH A VIEW:

• LIKO’S TAP & TABLE: Head to Hawai‘i Kai for this waterfront eatery. Liko’s offers outdoor seating, a menu teeming with favorites such as poke, loco moco and Liko’s fresh catch (served 4-9 p.m. daily) and 40 beers on tap (including 14 locally brewed beers). Takeout available. (likoshawaii.com)

• PARADISE COVE: This lū‘au isn’t so much dining with a view as it’s dining while experiencing the beauty around you. Your lū‘au experience begins with a lei welcome (and a mai tai) as you walk through the Hawaiian Village and learn about the arts and crafts of the islands. Then, a Shower of Flowers signals that the hukilau on the beach is about to start. That’s followed by the imu (underground oven) ceremony and the feast. Delicious food is complemented by an evening fi lled with the dances and songs of Polynesia. Note: at press time, Paradise Cove was temporarily closed. For updates, please go to paradisecove.com.

• DECK WAIKĪKĪ: You won’t get a more dramatic view of Diamond Head than the one you’ll find at Deck Waikīkī. Located on the third-floor pool deck at the Queen Kapi‘olani Hotel, its panoramic views of Diamond Head and Waikīkī Beach almost steal the show. Almost. Dive into any of the restaurant’s elevated island favorites — Kaua‘i garlic prawns, guava smoked pork ribs and ‘ahi kastu tacos are some suggestions — for a great meal. (deckwaikiki.com)

• 53 BY THE SEA: This oceanfront restaurant resembles a grand manor that invites friends near and far for a lavish dinner. Indulge in off erings such as grilled prime rib-eye, 53’s poke or the chilled seafood showcase. Sunday brunch is also available 10 a.m.-1:30 p.m. (53bythesea.com)

• PLUMERIA BEACH HOUSE: Located just steps from the sands off The Kāhala Hotel & Resort, Plumeria Beach House offers open-air, casual dining. Perfect for sunset cocktails, menu favorites include fried ‘ahi poke musubi, gratin of Big Island abalone beurre maître d’hôtel, lobster thermador and broiled misoyaki butterfish. (kahalaresort.com)

• 100 SAILS: This restaurant located at the Prince Waikīkī overlooks the harbor, hence its name: 100 Sails. The perfect pairing with its nautical views are the breakfast and dinner menus that offer up favorites such as Punalu‘u French toast and açai bowls in the morning and the fitting catch of the day or lobster fried rice in the evenings.
