I guess we saved the best for last! Visited The Fish Market and Buon Appetito previously. Roy’s Hawaiian Fusion was great! Butterfish was perfectly prepared. Lobster bisque and miso soups were delightful! We would go again, but trip is over!

A bit of a challenge finding your way to Roy's from the Marriott- quite a maze. Interior a bit dark and feels dated. Outside seating is wonderful, right at the Marina and sunsets are spectacular (see photo). I have always loved their Butterfish (Alaskan Black...More

Had a smallish business dinner here with about 10 people. Service was great with some pre-ordered shared appetizer plates and desserts, then we each ordered our own main course. Food was well prepared and great service.
