Description: The Royal Hawaiian presents Azure - a world-class restaurant perched along the Waikiki beachfront under the canopy of hotel's dramatic architecture. The bejeweled oceanfront space is adorned with intimate candles, plush banquettes, and pillows - creating an ambience of exquisite relaxation. Daily at 5:30 am, the ringing of a brass bell announces the opening of the Honolulu fish auction. And it is here that our chefs begin their quest for the freshest morning catch. Obsessed with quality and driven by excellence, they handpick the best of the best. Offering you, our discerning patrons, the tastiest seafood on the island and an experience beyond compare. Whether it is ahi, opah, onaga, opakapaka, or moi that whets your appetite - locally caught fish are selected each morning at daybreak from the Hawaii fish auction and then prepared with your pleasure in mind.

The meal was.......delicious! Seared Ahi with a spectacular sauce and great tasting sides. Service was top notch, the wine list good and all in the hotel that is the iconic representation of Honolulu as a great tropic travel spot.

Specialises in fresh fish, whatever was good at the market that morning. Our choices were delicious and very well prepared. Service was a bit pushy – our waiter was pushing the tasting menu very hard – but overall it was a good meal.

We had a wonderful wedding evening dinner at Azure in one of the cabanas. We had the degustation menu which was amazing! It was so diverse and interesting and the service was awesome! I had agonized over where to have our honeymoon destination dinner experience for a few months, and read many reviews about all the top places, so I was nervous if we made the right decision. Be sure and reserve the cabana, they clear out all the beach chairs in the evening and will close as many curtains as you wish for the cabana, the sound of the ocean, and the view was wonderful.

Despite a couple of fussy reviews below, I agree with the many, many Tripadvisor reviewers who've thoroughly enjoyed the very enjoyable experience at Azure on the beach at the Royal Hawaiian.

I was fascinated to read on the menu their daily bidding for the very best seafood at the famous Hawaiian fish market. That explains why Azure has just won the title of "Best New Restaurant" in Hawaii.

Having great experience with fresh seafood, I can assure Tripadvisor readers that what you taste is worth the price. It's the difference between satisfying succulent seafood and cheaper boring food.

A couple of reviews complained about trivia like "music next door" or "not enough attention" - their glass must have been half empty, while everyone around us rejoiced with a full glass and a great experience.

To us, it's all about the food. Sure, service is important (and ours was excellent) but the bottom line is getting taste bang for your buck.

We hope to return.
