Fodor's Expert Review Haleiwa Joe's Haiku Gardens

$$ Windward Oahu American

The Haleiwa location may be the namesake and claim the surf, but this Windward-side spot offers all the same friendly vibe and grilled seafood with knock-'em-dead views and a tiki torch–lit atmosphere after dark. The chef promotes a daily special preparation for the day's catch delivered straight from the Honolulu Fish Auction, along with the signature turf favorites. It's the open-air view of the Haiku Gardens directly behind the restaurant that makes this spot a romantic favorite. Don't forget to take a look at the H3 highway nestled into the deep valleys and soaring Koolau Mountains in the distance; it's reportedly the longest and most expensive elevated highway ever constructed in the United States. Come for an early dinner or fantastic Sunday brunch and enjoy the stunning views. Be sure to leave time for a stroll around the pond and through the garden.
