About

Michel’s at the Colony Surf has been inspiring romance since 1962. At the foot of Diamond Head just outside of Waikiki we offer the island’s best oceanfront view of sunset and the Honolulu city lights. Our delectable French haute cuisine with island flair is complemented by impeccable service.

Honolulu Magazine has bestowed Michel’s with the “Best Restaurant for Romance” Hale Aina Award every year since 1985. We are also recognized as a Distinguished Restaurant of North America (DiRōNA), and Robin Leach from the “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous” named us one of the “World’s Best.”

In addition to the waves in front of our restaurant, live music can be heard most nights of the week. We are proud to host such musicians as two-time Grammy-winning classical and Hawaiian slack-key guitarist, Jeff Peterson. Make a reservation at Michel’s where all of your senses will be enchanted.
