Fodor's Expert Review Hau Tree Lanai

$$$$ Waikiki American

Countless anniversaries, birthdays, and family milestones have been celebrated under this spectacular hau tree, where it's said that even Robert Louis Stevenson found shade as he mused and wrote about Hawaii. Still today, diners are captivated by the shade, the beach views, the romantic setting, and a menu that delivers everything from eggs Benedict to a sizzling steak. The restaurant is known for its rich, classic eggs Benedict for breakfast, papaya chicken salad at lunch, and workmanlike fresh catch of the day or steak at dinner. Dinner entrée portions are quite large. During the day you get a nice sight line of beach life on Kaimana Beach, a favorite spot for locals.
