2. Alan Wong’s
Located on King Street of downtown Honolulu, this highly acclaimed restaurant is a must when visiting Oahu. This unique restaurant allows you to watch the chef prepare your meal out of fresh, local ingredients.

Another must-try romantic experience is the Pa’akai restaurant on the North Shore of Oahu. The appropriately named restaurant translates to, “sea salt” and sits right along the ocean. You must try the Big Island Kampachi with hearts of palm and shiitake mushrooms as it’s one of their signature dishes.
For dessert, we recommend that you try the Checkerboard Haupia Ice Cream Cake for a taste of authentic Hawaiian flavors. Then, pair it with one of their unique dessert wines like the Haupia Pie or Chocolate Truffle wine.
