Orchids at Halekulani

Orchids at Halekulani, Oahu

Offering both indoor and outdoor seating, the Orchids restaurant is located at the Halekulani Hotel looking out onto Waikiki Beach. The dining area is surrounded by a plentiful supply of bright, multi-colored tropical orchids. The oceanfront setting is casually elegant and all the menus (breakfast, lunch and dinner) offer a good mix of local favorites and speciality dishes. The Orchids also serves afternoon tea and Sunday Brunch, with the latter having been credited by Honolulu Magazine as "Oahu's Best Brunch."

Originally the site of a two-story house built by Robert Lewers in 1883, the Halekulani Hotel - home to the Orchids - has a rich history. In Lewers' day, local fisherman would come to the front of the house with their canoes to rest. So welcoming were Lewers' family that the location was named Halekulani, meaning "house befitting heaven." Today's owners of the Halekulani endeavour to maintain that Hawaiian spirt of welcome. The Orchids aims to provide a dining experience that celebrates all the region's flavors - a rare mix of taste, local hospitality, and beautiful surroundings. Specialty dishes on the menu include island-raised moi with hearts of palm, ahi-seared sashimi with Cajun spices and oriental-style steamed onaga. Some of the seating at the Orchids overlook the yard of the House Without A Key - a beachfront venue that hosts live Hawaiian music every night from 5.30pm to 9.00pm, the sound of which further enhances the ambience for patrons of the Orchids.
