Roy's is a Hawaii institution and a solid choice for a special occassion lunch or dinner at an upscale location. To be sure, you will pay for this, and it will add up quickly, what with a drink, appetizer, entree, dessert, and you're a stone's throw away from $100 per person. The fish is the way to go. The steaks aren't bad, but given the tourist prices at Roy's one can easily find MUCH better on the mainland.
This restaurant is great for anyone likes Japanese inspired cuisine. The ahi tuna is absolutely amazing with seaweed flavored. I would give rating of 5 if not because of the misoyaki butterfish which didn’t have enough salt to balance the sweetness taste. However, it was cooked just right to have the tenderness and great texture! The calamari was so crispy and yet tender inside. Located at the golf course and by Kaanapali highway, very easy access and parking.
Exceptional service & food. Make a reservation ahead of time... we are lucky we got in. The waitress kept touching my husband's shoulders & arms while she was talking which made us both feel kind of awkward but we laughed about it later. She was super nice but desperately trying to get tipped.
The food was amazing! The Ahi was to die for! We got some for appetisers they were so good we had to get the full size for entrees. All the meals were delicious! Service was amazing and I can’t fault a thing!
Ordered the butterfish and it was soaked with the ginger Wasabi sauce. Tasted like they poured a cup of sugar in it. I even told the waitress who asked if I wanted it replated. I declined. Ordered the bacon salad which did not have bacon in it until eating half of my salad and I realized it. Waitress brought a container of bacon and asked if we wanted it replated. We declined. People told me to eat at Roy's. After this experience, I will never go there again
