My picks for dinner were La Mer at the Halekulani Hotel and the Beachhouse at the Moana Surfrider, both a short walk from the Sheraton Waikiki which was the host hotel for the competition;  and Hoku's  at the Kahala Hotel and Resort, a short taxi-ride away. I also managed to enjoy a lunch at the Surf Lanai at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel. The links in this post will take you to my review for each restaurant.</p> </div> <div class="field field--name-node-link field--type-ds field--label-hidden field--item"> <a href="/review-cellar/fine-food-honolulu-hawaii-sampler" hreflang="und">Read On...</a> </div> </div> </div> Wed, 29 Oct 2014 05:55:05 +0000 Gillian Lockitch 1640 at https://www.reviewfromthehouse.com Supping Away: Honolulu.
