Hawaiian cuisine is known for its fusion of diverse cultures. American, Chinese, Filipino, Japanese, Korean, Polynesian and Portuguese influences are all represented in the unique and varied restaurants styles found on Oahu.

Whether it’s experiencing a neighborhood restaurant in the Kapahulu district one night, or splurging on a Five Diamond restaurant featuring Hawaiian regional fare another night, food lovers will delight in the range of cuisines they discover while visiting Waikiki. Of all the islands, Hawaii’s most celebrated restaurants are all conveniently located within walking distance of Waikiki Beach.

For a different Waikiki dining experience, the perspective of the landscape and famous sunsets become even more stunning while enjoying a Waikiki dinner cruise. Most cruise operators sail close to Diamond Head Point and offer steak, seafood, a Polynesian show and dancing. It’s a popular option for honeymooners and families alike.

And your trip to Oahu wouldn't be complete without attending a Hawaiian luau, one of the most memorable activities in Waikiki. These local extravaganzas feature all-you-can eat buffet feasts that feature a succulent kalua pig that has been roasting in an underground oven all day. Arrive to the luau early to see the uncovering of the pig! Luaus come complete with a Polynesian show that is sure to entertain all that experience this Hawaiian tradition.
