New to Waikiki: Upstairs Hawaii

Upstairs Hawaii is located on Beachwalk in the former space of bills Waikiki.  When you reach upstairs, you will instantly see how spacious the restaurant is. I just love the incredible floor to ceiling wood panels. It looks so pretty at night and makes for a beautiful ambience.  

What makes Upstairs Hawaii's menu so unique is that they offer special dishes by well known restaurants Sushi Sho and Hachibei. We had our hearts set on trying the Bara Chirashi by Sushi Sho, but it was sold out by the time we were ready to order. That was a little disappointing, but it just means we will have to return.

For starters, we shared the namero (a minced salmon with tobiko) and the hamachi ponzu. I ordered the Upstairs burger, a beef and pork patty with bacon and tomato jam, that I highly recommend. My friend had Hachibei's oyakodon and also liked it.  We enjoyed the food and the drinks, which included the pretty lattes we had with our dessert. Our server was funny and great which made for a fantastic experience.  I look forward to returning to try more dishes off the menu especially the Bara Chirashi!

Two hour validated parking is available in the Bank of Hawaii building across the restaurant.

Surfin' 75 - I loved this take on the French 75

Mocktail Lady Lychee that can be made into a cocktail. Just ask!

The Upstairs Burger was so delicious! I enjoyed eating it all.

Finished the night with a latte.
