When on the islands we almost always order fish. But be sure to ask which menu items are fresh caught if that matters to you. Simply put, fresh caught has better taste and texture. Fish is too often overcooked due to inattention. Not here. Our...More

My husband and I chose to eat at Roy's while on a couples getaway and it did not disappoint! We were staying nearby at the Waikoloa Marriott Resort & Spa so an easy walk across the street was very convenient! I would recommend reserving your...More

Roy’s is consistently very good. We have eaten at this location previously, as well as other islands. We always make sure we include a Roy’s in our dining itinerary. All meal courses were very good. We shared a salad starter and my wife said that...More

Delicious... Amazing.... Really outstanding... Take your choice; that's what the four of us said about dinner last night. Oh, and 'Fabulous' made it into our discussion too. We also dined locally at the Fairmont and the Westin this past week, to enthusiastic reviews, but Roy's...More

I’m guessing at some point this place was great. It’s not anymore. We ate here twice and shame on us for giving it a second try after the first bad experience. The sushi is lack luster - the spring rolls are about the same quality...More

I had a mixed reaction to dinner at Roy’s. I was taken aback by the prices but thought why not. It was our first night in Hawaii after a long day of travel it was close to our hotel. Ambiance is nice. Noise level moderate...More
