Looking out on its namesake, La Mer is the prettiest dining room on Oahu, with carved wooden screens setting an elegant art deco-ish tone. The classic haute-cuisine French food may be a little tired, but the restaurant remains a popular "special occasion" restaurant. Three prix-fixe options are offered (three or four courses, or a seven-course tasting menu)—choose from dishes such as sautéed baby squid with onion marmalade and coriander pesto, and roasted duck breast with beetroot and red fruit mousseline—as well as several rather expensive supplements. Place yourself in the sommelier's hands for wine choices from the hotel's exceptional cellar. Jacket or long-sleeved shirt required for gentlemen. For an elegant cocktail experience in Waikiki, visit L'Aperitif bar located inside the restaurant. Each cocktail comes with a paired gourmet bite.
