Located in the Pacific Beach Hotel, 26 feet below the surface of the ocean, this restaurant has a view like no other. It features a 280,000-gallon, three-story aquarium with acrylic windows that are four to seven inches thick. While dining you will see everything from Hawaiian stingrays to the state fish, the Humuhumunukunukuapua'a. The fish are fed six times a day by scuba divers. The menu features high-quality American fare. There is a nightly dinner buffet as well as a Sunday brunch buffet.
THE PLACE IS KOO, THE SERVICE WAS EXCELLENT. THE FOOD WAS SO JUNK. WE WENT FOR THE PRE-FATHERS DAY DINNER. WE WEREN'T ONLY FIGHTING THE ONE HOUR AND HALF TIME LIMIT (WE WAS 15 MINS LATE), BUT ALSO THE FLYS!!! IT WAS ABOUT $43 A PERSON, NOT EVEN WORTH IT. WE WOULD HAVE HAD BETTER FOOD AT PAGODA'S!! EVERYONE ALSO HAD THE RUNS FOR 3 DAYS!
I've lived here all my life and always wanted to go the Oceanarium because I thought it would be really cool. Although I'm glad my husband and I finally did go, I'm sorry to say that we would not return there - once was enough for us. The service was great, the atmosphere was extremely casual and therefore kid-friendly, and the tank was something to look at while you were eating, but we did not like the food at all. Therefore, for us it was way overpriced. I had my fill of crab legs (one of the main reasons why we went there), but that's it. Neither my husband nor I had seconds of anything else, and there was quite a variety of foods. The breads were dry, the mussels (which we love) did not taste good, and even the desserts tasted weird. But perhaps we went on an "off" night??
Restaurant was nice and has a beautiful view of the tank. Food was good but I don't think is worth the price. We got there about 1 hr before they close and the cooks were kinda cleaning and wraping up.
I have been to eat at the Oceanarium various times and love it there!!
The food is always good and you really do get your fill!!
The service attendants are always on hand and very nice!
Will absolutlely go again and again whenever I am in Honolulu!
Escape from the crowds to eat great food, great prices

There is nothing I disliked about this restaurant. The restaurant was very clean and tidy; and the lighting was comfortable.
My son and I stopped in for a quick lunch and found the service to be friendly and accommodating. We got up to look at the fish after ordering and I noticed that our waiter waited for me to return to my seat to serve my coffee so that it was nice and hot when I was ready. I really appreciated that gesture.
The tank is nice; a good variety of fish and a spectacular show of stingrays who are very curious about people. The prices were more than adequate and the portions were enough that we were both full on a bowl of soup, sandwich and fries.
What I really enjoyed was the peace and quiet in the restaurant. It's nice to escape the hustle and bustle of Waikiki at the Oceanarium Restaurant. I've found my new cozy spot.
Wonderful show.Try to go during fish feeding; good view of the fishes from everywhere. Terrific selection and variety of foods. Cozy atmosphere. Just a little
pricy unless you're very hungry. Top of the line fresh and onolicious fun for everyone.
It's a fun experience to dine at this restaurant. Food is good considering it's a buffet, and the service is decent. But it's a little bit pricy if you don't have the 25% off coupon. It costs about $35 each person on the weekend buffet.
Simple, sophisticated and peaceful, this is a welcome retreat from the hectic rush of Waikiki. It caters to an almost
entirely Japanese clientele, although some Western tourists wander in from time to time. Order a la carte or opt ...
Being in this place is more like being in Japan than America. Of course, one could say that about many
