Beachhouse at the Moana
Affectionately called “The First Lady of Waikīkī,” this grande dame opened in 1901. Its dreamy, gracious architecture harks back to the sugar plantation era and wraps around a courtyard anchored by a massive over-100-year-old banyan. Pull up a chair under its spreading branches—or else one overlooking the ocean—and enjoy island-inspired fine dining. East meets West here with appetizers like Kona abalone bourguignon, tempura asparagus with parmesan custards and twice-cooked octopus with macadamia romesco. Entree standouts include the miso salmon and Korean-fusion Beach Bim Bop starring fiddlehead ferns, kimchi Brussels sprouts and kalbi-BBQ-sauce-glazed thick, meaty Ali'i mushrooms from local grower Hamakua. Save room for its tour de force finale: a dessert "tree" with small bites of everything from macarons to red-velvet cheesecake.
