Honolulu and Oahu Restaurants

La Mariana Restaurant & Sailing Club

Updated 01/17/2014

Fodor's Review

La Mariana Restaurant & Sailing Club. The last of Honolulu's old-school tiki bars is tucked away in the industrial area of Sand Island. A mix of salty-dog sailors (the place looks out on sailboats bobbing in the Keehi Lagoon marina) and hipsters drink stiff mai tais (cocktails are all made with bottled mixers—no handcrafted anything here) sitting at the bar lit by puffer-fish hanging lamps or in peacock chairs in the dining room. The food—breaded shrimp

with cocktail sauce and fries, prime rib with mashed potatoes—is equally cast in Mad Men amber (frozen vegetable medley anyone?). You go for the feeling that Don the Beachcomber might walk in any minute. Ron Miyashiro—a blind pianist who once played at the late, great Tahitian Lanai—tinkles the ivories on Thursday nights, and amateur talents croon along. 50 Sand Island Access Rd., Iwilei, Honolulu, HI, 96819. 808/848–2800. www.lamarianasailingclub.com.

Authentic Old Hawaii Tiki Bar/Restaurant

This place has been here forever. The service is slow and tentative but the wait is worth it especially as you have a calm interval in which to enjoy your Mai Tais looking at the boats in the marina. Seafood dishes are the best. Lunch and dinner. This is an experience not to miss. Popular with locals.
