Best Oahu Restaurants
I am often asked about the best Oahu restaurants. One of the places I always recommend is Duke’s Waikiki! Duke’s Waikiki offers amazing cocktails, delicious food and beautiful views! I highly recommend checking out Duke’s Waikiki on your Hawaii Vacation!
I must confess one reason Duke’s Waikiki makes my list of best Oahu restaurants is I believe Duke’s makes the best cocktails on the island! From their famous Mai Tai to their Lava Flow, Duke’s is a great place to unwind and take in the scenery.
When looking for best Oahu restaurants the most important thing is the food and Duke’s does not disappoint. At lunch you can take advantage of the lunch buffet that includes Island Style Fish, Teriyaki Chicken and their famous salad bar.
If you do not want the lunch buffet you can choose from a variety of entrees on the lunch menu such as Mango BBQ Baby Back Ribs!
After a day of Hawaii Activities I like to enjoy a delicious dinner at Duke’s Waikiki. I love their Seafood Luau! Be sure not to fill up with the salad bar that comes with each entree because you have to save room for Hula Pie!
Another reason I consider Duke’s Waikiki as one of the Best Oahu Restaurants is because you can feel the Aloha Spirit from the moment you walk in. This may be because they live and work by Duke Paoa Kahanamoku’s creed:
In Hawaii we greet friends, loved ones or strangers with “Aloha,” which means love.
Aloha is the key word to the universal spirit of real hospitality, which makes Hawaii renowned as the world’s center of understanding and fellowship.
Try meeting or leaving people with Aloha. You’ll be surprised by their reaction. I believe it, and it is my creed.
Aloha to you.
-Duke Paoa Kahanamoku
