Great Restaurants in Honolulu Hawaii
Having lived in Hawaii for almost twenty years now, I have enjoyed eating out at some amazing restaurants.
We do not eat out that often, but when there is a special occasion like a birthday, anniversary, or some guests have come to town, we scout out the best food in an environment with exotic ambiance.
The Oceanarium Restaurant
With a whole wall that is an acquarium, you can enjoy your brunch, lunch or dinner while watching observing the sea life.
The Pacific Beach Hotel is the home of the 280000-gallon indoor Oceanarium.
Besides the large variety of delectable dishes including prime rib of beef, nigiri sushi, crab legs and fresh sashimi, you can choose from the pasta and dessert stations.

Another favorite of mine is The Willows in Honolulu.
It has a mesmerizing dancing fountain, and sits on one acre of tropical gardens with cascading waterfalls and native Hawaiian flowers.
They serve a Hawaiian-American all you can eat buffet for lunch and dinner. You can either dine inside or out doors.
The Willows has intriguing historical and cultural significance in Hawaii.

Top of Waikiki
I can't leave out an exciting experience in Honolulu.
There is a rotating restaurant called very fittingly the Top of Waikiki . They have received awards for their Pacific fusion cuisine.
Enjoy 360 degree views of fabulous Waikiki while you dine.
I have very fond memories of the food and the view.
They have what we call fine grinds (translation: good food)!
As far as I'm concerned, these are some of the best places to celebrate any special occasion in Hawaii. They know how to do it right, and I am sure you won't be disappointed.
If you want cheap eats - go to McDonald's or Jack in the Box, but for some fine dining, great ambiance, and a meal to remember for years to come, you ought to try the Oceanarium Restaurant, The Willows and the Top of Waikiki, all situated in Honolulu, Hawaii.
