Romantic Beachside Dining

Hello. I live in the east coast and I am planning to travel to Oahu next month with my girl. I'm looking for a place on the beach were we can watch the sunset as we dine, a place with maybe hurricane lamps and tiki torches that serves good upscale food to make a romantic dinner really memorable. Romantic Hawaiian melodies are a plus. I'm sure you get the picture of what is it I'm looking for. It doesn't have to be in Waikiki; as a matter of fact I'd prefer it not to be. If it's worth it I'd be willing to drive a while for it. I guess I'm looking to find something like the Hau Tree Lanai Restaurant, but more upscale...

If you have any ideas, PLEASE let me know. Thank you so much.

    i love hau tree! we got dressed up and it was so romantic.

    like above, i hear the steakhouse at the moana is good too. i haven't eaten there though. but the restaurant is the old grand salon iirc.

    i did get married on the terrance next to the salon a late last year and the spot is just so beautiful.

    have you checked any restaurants at the ihilani? i've never looked into that myself though... hmmmm....

      The Moana Hotel serves a nice dinner on thier porch-make reservations. It overlooks Waikiki beach and the huge banyan tree under which they perform nightly Hawaiian music complete w a dancer. I dont know name of restaurant but am sure if u google hotel u will find.

        Orchids at the Halekulani.... ask for the closest patio table to the beach bar for the romantic hawaiian melodies.

        Food is good... not Chowhound Earth Shattering... but good. Beware the Chinese style steamed fish is a lame fillet and not a whole fish... most of the regular diners at these establisments aren't cool or sophisticated enough to appreciate a whole fish.
