Twist at Hanohano

(Now Closed)


2255 Kalakaua Ave., The Sheraton Waikiki Resort,
Honolulu, Oahu,
United States,

Some of the most envied views in town of curved Waikiki Beach can be had from this 30th-floor restaurant, accessed by a ride in a glass elevator. It’s somewhat touristy, sure, but the view is amazing, the food stacks up, and it’s been a Waikiki favorite for decades. Live piano or other subdued music wafts around the huge open room, and city lights twinkle as you dine on diver scallops with morels and a hint of citrus, pine-nut-crusted lamb chops with a lemony-mint sauce, or red snapper poached with Tahitian vanilla and served with a corn-and-crab cake. It’s open only for dinner and has a no-beachwear dress code.
