Palm trees. Sand. Surf. Hula girls. You haven’t died and gone to heaven just yet, but you’re in the next best place: Hawaii. If you find yourself lucky enough to be visiting these luscious tropical isles, you’ll want to know the best places to go and grab some good grub. Here’s a guide to some of the best restaurants in Honolulu, from casual spots to classy joints guaranteed to impress.
The menu at Restaurant Epic is just as good as it sounds. Located in the heart of Chinatown, this is one of the best restaurants in Honolulu, featuring the best happy hour in town with an assortment of drink specials, including their signature Epic Mojito. Indulge in some happy hour snack-sized bites such as the Pocho Mac n’ Cheese Balls and Furikake fries with wasabi aioli, or indulge in dishes off the main menu including the Mongolian Pork Chop and Bacon-Jalapeno Wrapped Tater Tots.
If you’re looking for a more authentic local dining experience, head on over to Helena’s Hawaiian Food, an humble eatery located on North School Street. One of the best restaurants in Honolulu, Helena’s Hawaiian Food has been serving quality Hawaiian cuisine for the past sixty-four years. Their menu includes the popular Poi, Lomi Salmon and Kalua Pig cooked in Imu. Their prices are extremely reasonable, making this a cool spot to hit up after a long day at the beach.
For a classy night out on the town, be sure to make reservations at Azure Restaurant & Bar, located in the renowned Royal Hawaiian Hotel on Kalakaua Avenue. A world class restaurant perched directly alongside the shores of Waikiki beach under the canopy of the most dramatic architecture, relax under intimate candle light while leaning back against comfortable pillows and plush banquettes as you prepare to indulge your taste buds in a symphony of flavors. From Smoked Hawaiian Moonfish Tartare to the Kona Lobster stuffed with Dungeness Crab, the only dilemma you’ll face is deciding which dish to order.
