Local flavor has returned to Waikiki

ED KENNEY’S MAHINA & SUN’S IS A PURVEYOR OF ELEVATED HOME COOKING inspired by Hawaii’s people and place. Our menus offer unique local dishes and cocktails that utilize only the very best ingredients from Oahu’s farmlands – for brekkie, lunch, dinner and drinks. We’re also the state’s leader in ocean-friendly sourcing practices.

With nightly live music, occasional poolside concerts, and movie screenings under the stars, Mahina & Sun’s is much more than a meal. It’s a place where adventurers gather, where new connections are made, and where ideas are inspired, all over food and drink you can feel good about.  Hidden within a swell little spot called the Surfjack Hotel & Swim Club, Mahina & Sun’s participates in a creative space that connects locals and visitors to exciting Honolulu artists, designers, musicians and epicureans.

A concept of esteemed Chef Ed Kenney, Mahina & Sun’s is Kenney’s fourth establishment – following Town Restaurant, Mud Hen Water, and Kaimuki Superette – and his only eatery in Waikiki.

HOURS:

Mon-Sun – 6:30 am to 10 pm
Happy Hour – 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm (Mon-Fri at the bar)

LOCATION:

Surfjack Hotel & Swim Club

Why you won’t find Bluefin ahi on our menu (for now)

 

Local chef Ed Kenney, who’s known for his lively gathering places and his use of local and seasonal ingredients, is also one of Hawaii’s largest advocates of ocean-friendly seafood sourcing.

Little known to most, he’s the only chef in the state that follows the Monterey Aquarium’s Seafood Watch Program which makes recommendations on seafood items that are “best choices” and “good alternatives” (but also which ones to “avoid”). That’s why you won’t find Bluefin ahi served year-round here. Or why your favorite Kualoa Ranch oysters aren’t always available (hint: they’re being homegrown).

Our curated menu reminiscent of old Hawaii gives incredible thought to local ingredients, safe sourcing and elevated home cooked flavor, with aloha always.
