Fodor's Hawaii 2014
La Mariana Restaurant & Sailing Club
La Mariana Restaurant & Sailing Club Review
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.
