La Mer is marvelous isle of culinary sophistication in the midst of Waikiki's many lesser, tourist-friendly offerings. Service, ambiance, and cuisine were all exceptional and the view of Diamondhead from our table was incredible. A great meal and a great evening - we can't wait...More

There is little to say about this restaurant - everything from atmosphere to service to food is absolutely perfect. It is without flaw.

For a few years La Mer fell off our radar for top-level dining (after Chef Mavro departed), as the food was just very good and the portions were rather small for the high price paid. But they now have their mojo back in spades. Trust...More

Hello, How do your menus work? It looks like you have set menus that come with multiple courses. How much does the menu cost for two people? What are the courses? And does it come with wine or cocktails?

50歳代の夫婦です。12月に初めてハワイへ行きます。その際、ラ メールでディナーを楽しみたいと思うのですが、ひとつ心配なことがあります。ディナーでお酒を注文したいと思うのですが、ハワイではお酒をオーダーする際、21歳以上であることを証明するためにパスポートを提示しなければならないと聞いたのですが、ラ メールのような超高級レストランでもお酒をオーダーする際にはパスポートの提示を求められるのでしょうか?これまで世界中のいろいろなリゾートへ行きましたが、高級リゾートでドレスコードがあることは理解できるのですが、お酒のオーダーにパスポートが必要になった経験が一度もないので質問いたします。よきアドバイスよろしくお願いします。

La Mer is far more than a restaurant, it’s a degustation destination. Celebrated as Halekulani’s finest and Hawaii's longest, consecutively ranked AAA Five Diamond Restaurant, this consummate dining experience is unmatched. The internationally acclaimed menu features Neoclassic French cuisine expertly crafted and served amid majestic and romantic ocean views of Waikiki Beach and Diamond Head. Indigenous ingredients are uniquely blended in masterful dishes inspired by flavors from the south of France to produce an unsurpassed dining experience. An award-winning wine list is available to complement the perfect dining experience. Jacket or long sleeve dress shirt, slacks and dress shoes are required for men. As an elegant fine dining restaurant, La Mer restricts patrons to adults and children 8 years or older.
