I went there for the music (fabulous by the way) but the service was so slow and poor customer service. Even though the music was awesome, it took away from the total experience....I left very unhappy and will probably not return.

Open air bar area with upmarket bar food and great drinks. Waitress was quite knowledgable about the wines on offer and happy to recommend wines to suit our palate

My husband and I really enjoyed the live music and drinks! Sitting there taking in the wonderful evening, drinking, people watching, meeting people, and listening to live music was such a great way to end our night!

Relax in the romantic ambience of old Hawaii. A perfect meeting place for afternoon tea or cocktails with live jazz entertainment in the evening.

Designed in classic plantation style, The Veranda takes patrons back to another time when life was more leisurely and meeting with friends for tea and conversation was a daily affair. The comfortable lounge overlooks the Dolphin Lagoon with a choice of both indoor and al fresco seating. Large, upholstered chairs are perfect for lingering over a cocktail or just escaping with a good book, as palm leaf motifs and island-inspired furnishings transport you to that other time.

Our Afternoon Tea is a tradition, after a day out discovering Oahu. It is also a popular venue for special occasions and showers. Afternoon Tea is a delight with delicate finger sandwiches, sweet treats and carefully curated loose leaf teas.
