This place was very nice view.
I like “Hawaiian coffee” here.
Egg Benedict was so nice.

Everything was done well from the valet parking, prompt seating on the lanai, attentive service and a scrumtious 3-course shared lunch. The rain stayed away and sunshine even came out.

Excellent food and service. Classic eggs Benedict was still as delicious as I remember. Others had the Monte Cristo and Corned Beef Hash and eggs. All 8 breakfasts were excellent. Location is superb and the waiters so friendly and efficient. Glad that it is still as special as it was years ago.

Fantastic patio / unbelievable view. Great place to watch sunset. Ambiance is so cool. Food is good. Unremarkable though. Drinks were solid. Service experience was very good.
Would definitely go again even with average food as view and drinks were that good.

Beautiful restaurant! Have been dining at Hau Tree Lanai for years as a kamaaina and now as a visitor from Hawaii Island. The most wonderful breakfast/ brunch spot on the island. Attentive service, excellent food and beautiful setting. A Hawaiian treasure not to be missed. Old school Hawaii. Mahalo

We always enjoy the wonderful breakfasts at the Hau Tree. The eggs Benedict and the Hawaiian style French toast are favorites and a half papaya with lime is a great starter. We wouldn’t consider Honolulu without breakfast here!

Hau Tree Lani is a must when entertaining out of town visitors. Food, services and atmosphere are a delight.
I gave only 4 stars for service because simple cocktails were not available until
11:30 am. Although I was able to order a Irish coffee my preferred drink Gin and Tonic was not available.
That was the only slight hiccup in an otherwise great Brunch. Highly recommended

This place is located in a beautiful setting. As soon as you arrive through the lobby doors, all the people around you exude a genuine characteristic relaxed Hawaiian warmth, the people who work here exemplify the famed Hawaiian hospitality, greeting you with a congenial "Aloha!" as you come for your reservation check-in and again when you are seated. My partner and I had a beautiful seat underneath the hau tree, right at the balustrades between the restaurant and the Sans souci beach. Unfortunately, when the coffee is poured and the food appeared on the glass covered pink tablecloth, the magic deflates. I felt that there wasbetter coffee on an air New Zealand flight thab what was served here. The pancakes were buoyant and moist, I spat out a strange sausage, the fruits were good, the French toast alright, but I felt that, with perhaps the exception of the fruit, it all tasted of what may have been serviced by a generic restaurant supply company to keep costs reduced. While it is a stories place, it is a place which is not quite kept as well as it may have in past times. I loved the people and the setting—the food, not so much.

夕方17時半から予約し、サンセットを観ながらお食事させていただきました。
ほぼ満席と混んでおりましたが、私たちは子連れで心配していました。しかしとてもいいサービスして頂きました。ちなみに家族4人でテラス席を案内してもらいました。
日本人はちらほら。ホールスタッフの方も少し日本語が分かる方、話せる方が居ました。エッグベネディクトのディナーセットに、照り焼きチキンをオーダーしました。ベネディクトソースが絶品!チキンにはライスもついており、このオーダーで大人2人+園児2人には十分な量でした。
ビール二杯、taxとチップを入れて合計125ドルくらいでしたよ。
美味しいお食事に、とても綺麗で忘れがたい夕日、最高の思い出となりました。またピンクのテーブルクロスにシンボルツリー、そして目の前がビーチ、とてもロケーションが良かったです!

二度目の利用。前回予約した際はテラスの内側の席だったので、今回はビーチ沿いの席になりとても嬉しかったです。おそらく時間帯により混んでいると予約をしても必ずビーチ沿いになるとは限らないです。
ただ、予約はおすすめです。
雰囲気は最高!今回ランチで利用しましたが、木の下で影になることもありとても気持ちよく過ごせます。
ビデオカメラで撮影してた私達に、パフォーマンスサービスしてくださり、お店の方も優しかったです♫

The shop is also gentle and can be spent with peace of mind.Thank you!!

Hau Tree Lanai is one of the most beautiful restaurants in Hawaii. It is mostly outside on the terrace, under three Hau Trees. It's a perfect place to watch the sunset and see the late swimmers enjoying the golden ocean.

Service is friendly and impeccable, and the food is excellent, especially the fresh fish. Our last visit here was 6 years ago, on our last visit to Honolulu, and now, we can dream about our next visit.

Always great hostess and waiters. Papayas always taste better in Hawaii. Banana muffins with Macadamia nuts are the best. Sitting under the Hau Tree and looking at the beach is the best place in Honolulu. Thank you

もう1つはシリアル、ヨーグルトにアサイーが乗ったボウル。
アサイーはおいしかったですが、量がすごく多かったです。ミニサイズとかあるのかな?半分で十分でした。
