Germaines probably has a website and you can buy on line. If not, I'm sure you can do it by phone. Last choice, the activity or concierge desk at you hotel.
Here is my choice for a restaurant in the Waikaki area. The name is Hau Tree Lanai.
Located in the New Otani Hotel (walk along Waikaki in direction of Diamond Head. Pass the Honolulu Zoo and the first hotel you come to.
Dinner is served on a Lanaii (patio) covered in giant hau trees. Book so you will be there for cocktail and dinner at sunset. Food is outstanding and plentiful. Service impeccable and the view is unsurpassed. Twinkle lights and tiki torches are lit at sunset for a lovely setting. Prices , by Honolulu standards are reasonable.
You should make a reservation, call directly or hotel cocierge can do this for you.

Check over in the celebrity threads for a similar question, Chuck Palm has made several really good recommendations.
I did not realize you would be on the island for a week. For a nice lunch or dinner and a nice scenic ride, drive around to the east coast and try the Crouching Lion .
If you are there for a week, another must do would be the Polynesian Cultural Center.
Plan to spend all day and into the evening. You get there at noon for opening and stay till about 10pm. Book the Ambassador package which is well worth it. Gets you an all day , small group private escorted tour. In addition it includes the Luau for dinner, the extravagant show spectacular after dinner in the show stadium, videos, leis, programs and deserts at the after dinner show.

I couldnt believe nobody suggested Sam Choy's Breakfast, Lunch and Crab.
My wife and I have never had a bad meal there. And the portions are enormous!

My fav places to eat downtown Honolulu are Dave & Busters (American food), lots of fun, great food, great service. Also, Buca Di Beppo's (Italian Food), very good italian food, HUUUUGE portions, decent prices for the amount of food you get. Both of these places are located in the Ward Warehouse area near Ala Moana beach & mall.

There's a great place in town called Hy's. It's a bit pricey, but well worth it. If you like opakapaka (local fish) you can order it "chinese style." It's not on the menu, but they will make it for you. My husband and I always go there and we love it!!

Just went to Hy's for our anniversary and it is still fantastic. You may not want gourmet rich food every night so here are a few I like:
The Pyramids on Kapahulu ave (lunch buffet for $8.95)
The Wailana Coffee Shop (across Hilton Hawaiian Village)
Genki Sushi (on Kapahulu)
Original Pancake House (in an office building on Kapiolani Blvd. near Ala Moana Center)
New Kapahulu Chop Suey (guess what street)

Needless to say, there are plenty of good places. Have a great time at Germaine's too

Aloha,
Craig
Kaneohe, HI

Hi Cruisecrazy & Papa Bill.

Germaines does have a nice website but they don't give the prices or the time or directions from the port area. I heard it was a bit out of the way???. Our cruise does not stay overnight & leaves port around 11 ,so I am not sure we could do the luau Let me now fif you find the time. What is the suggestion for best restaurant with a Hawaiian menu & atmosphere if you can't do a full luau?? Prefer something close to the ship. Thanks for the idea.
