I love the fresh fish here. My favorite is the Opah when they have it. The only thing I don't like about this restaurant is that it tends to get very loud.

My family and I stopped there on the way home from Hanauma Bay. We were not dressed as recommended but they still let us in. The food was delicious. Our server was super nice and even found a toy for our daughter to play with. I recommend the Butterfish. It melts in your mouth!

I have had the priviledge to dine at Roy's at least 50 times (Hawaii Kai to Waikiki). I live in the neighborhood - and they've been here for 20 years! I always enjoy our servers and the food is always excellent. I do not wait for special occassions to eat at Roy's - I actually find Outback Steakhouse (which is right across from Roy's), to be more costly. You don't have to break the bank to eat there - they have appetizer portions that are very reasonably priced. A must have is there signature chocolate souffle - it's my all time favorite dessert! I also notice the many charitible events that Roy's sponsors - which always makes me want to give them my business.

Pros: Outside entertainment, fast service, parking

Cons: Best to make a reservation - to insure seating

Seems that every time I get to a Roys something is bound to happen. My first time I sat down in the bar section. My server came took my drink order, and came back on a reasonable time. My order was very simple a salad and a sushi dish. It took 45minutes for the salad and another 30 for the sushi. On my second time I think they felt rushed and my food was cold starting from the vegetables to the partially cook meat that did not make it to rare.

I have been to Roy's on a number of occassions. The one feeling I always get is that it's too busy and caotic. The wait for food can take almost an hour...so you better enjoy your company. The food is awesome and the service is friendly and prompt (beverages and water refills). The prices are high for the ambience in my opinion. I have learned to sit down stairs or out on the patio for a much more romantic experience.

I've been to Roy's before - and every time i convince myself to return i experience yet another situation. The first time i went with my family, and my father who is not at -all- a picky eater, got an extremely poor cut of meat. The second time we waited over an hour for our food. I would not recommend Roys because although the ambiance is good - for the amount they ask for, it's just not worth waiting an hour for a chewy steak.

Roy is an amazing chef. It's rare to have an appetizer, entree and dessert all come out PERFECT! I was so amazed at the flavors in all of the dishes that I asked if Roy had a cookbook I could buy. I was told that in fact, he did. But President Clinton had been in the night before and bought the last copy. Bubba likes this place too!

This restaurant is located by the beautiful Maunaloa Bay at Hawaii Kai (about 10 miles east of Waikiki), facing a massive open water of the Pacific Ocean. We got there just before 6PM, and were lucky enough to get a window table on the second floor - and enjoyed the most gorgeous sunset view I've ever had. The food was fabulous, but the sunset was ever better.

Make a reservation early enough, be sure to ask for 2nd-floor seats near the window.

Fine dining with the spirit of aloha. I have enjoyed many fine dining restaurants across the nation and Roy's remains my favorite. Great service, wonderful and creative food in a relaxed atmosphere that manages to be casual and elegant at the same time. Always a wonderful experience to eat at Roy's.

This is where it all started: if there was one chef in the vanguard of Hawaii Regional cuisine, it was Roy Yamaguchi. Born in Hawaii, raised in Japan, educated in some top Los Angeles kitchens, Yamaguchi did as much as anyone to put Hawaii…
