Fodor's Review

Top of Waikiki, which opened in 1965, just underwent a significant update and renovation with an eye toward its next 50 years, but it remains the best spot in town to take in Honolulu's stunning panorama, now with new skyscrapers. Lance Kosaka, who was executive chef at Alan Wong's Pineapple Room, turns out contemporary American dishes with island flavor, and his menu includes staples like garlic shrimp, beet, avocado and goat cheese salad, and steaks and fish that bring guests back again and again. To get a sunset view, grab dinner around 5–6 pm, or take a seat at the bar in the center of the restaurant for happy hour–priced cocktails and appetizers. A full rotation takes about one hour, and can be a problem for those that get squeamish with motion sickness.
