Oceanarium Restaurant

oceanarium-wwTalk about an ocean themed dining experience; you won’t find anything like Oceanarium Restaurant anywhere else. Nearly 400 fish of 70 species, including the occasional mermaid, glide past in their two-story aquarium. With this unforgettably grand ocean feature, it’s hard to imagine anything comparing— that is, until you check out the buffet. Great for group dining (birthdays, anniversaries, unbirthdays), the buffet offers delicious crab legs, tender prime rib, fresh sashimi, shrimp tempura, oysters on the half shell and fresh island fish, like the Ginger-Steamed Hawaiian Onaga (long-tail red snapper). Try everything if you can, with a side of made-to-order pasta or traditional Hawaiian dishes, but save room for the chocolate fountain.

Oceanarium Restaurant, at the Pacific Beach Hotel, has been an international favorite for years. Featuring a luxurious buffet and exquisite entertainment,
Oceanarium Restaurant is a destination to be remembered. “Oceanarium is a tradition for many families,” says Chef Michael, who’s been with the Pacific Beach Hotel since the ’80s, “a tradition that even lasts decades. Many guests take their friends and family here on annual trips because they know the quality of the food and the atmosphere together is one of a kind, and we make a point to connect with them when they return.” The delicious, all-you-can-eat island buffet, back-dropped by nearly 400 fish and the occasional mermaid, make Oceanarium Restaurant a group dining adventure for guests of all ages. At the end of the year, this long-standing Waikiki landmark will undergo major renovations. For a last chance, or a first opportunity, to experience this timeless restaurant in its classic design, dive down today.
