We visited Michel’s again this trip and we were not disappointed. The service from our server David was excellent. Food quality was as expected very good. This is an expensive place to dine but worth a visit for sure.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner here. Outdoor terrace has stunning views of Waikiki, swaying palms. Mellow, elegant atmosphere and a terrific guitarist providing mood music. A bit pricey but the food is pretty good and the ambience is sublime.
