Michel’s at the Colony Surf has been the definition of fine dining in Honolulu since 1962. Our beachfront location on the most intimate strip of pristine sand in Waikiki has inspired romance for generations.

Legendary restaurateur and host Michel Martin, known for sharing fine French cuisine with Hawaii, opened Michel’s during World War II in my hometown of Wahiawa, near Schofield Barracks. In 1962, Michel’s moved to the then-new Colony Surf Hotel on the quiet end of Kalakaua Avenue near Diamond Head where it has resided ever since.

We paired Hawaiian hospitality and top-notch service with Chef Hardy’s classic European menu to create an experience that continues to attract guests we now call part of our family, our ohana.

Whether they’re celebrating a birthday, wedding anniversary or just stopping by for a weekday dinner, my greatest joy is in welcoming our friends back because I know the memories from that night were created with us.

Philip Shaw
General Manager, Michel’s at the Colony Surf

I learned early in my career that the best dishes always began by using the best ingredients, sourced sustainably and locally. Taking inspiration from classic French and European preparations, which often emphasize the quality and flavor of seasonal produce and seafood, I have crafted a menu that is uniquely Michel’s at the Colony Surf.

My seasonal six-course pre fixe dinner takes full advantage of our islands’ bounty and marries it beautifully with Big Island abalone, Kauai prawns and Kunoa beef among other proteins to create the Taste of Michel’s.

An important part of our identity lies in our signature tableside service. We are proudly one of the few remaining restaurants that continue to offer tableside dishes including our lobster bisque with fresh Maine lobster flamed with cognac and our essential dessert, the Hawaiian apple banana flambe finished with dark rum.

Oenophiles will appreciate our extensive wine list, which we seasonally update with the help of Hawaii’s esteemed Master Sommeliers to ensure there is always something expertly paired with your meal.

I warmly invite you to see difference that sets Michel’s apart when it comes to haute European cuisine prepared with island flair.

Eberhard “Hardy” Kintscher
Executive Chef, Michel’s at the Colony Surf




Michel’s Famous Lobster Bisque

Our signature lobster bisque is a 48-hour labor of love for each sumptuous batch.

Starting with live lobsters flown from Maine, we utilize every part of the crustacean in this laborious practice. A stock made from onaga (red snapper) bones is prepared to serve as the base of the bisque. Lobster shells are then crushed and strained to impart that unique briny burst of flavor to each bite. We then use Rice to bind the stock to the lobster resulting in an exquisite velvety texture. The lobster bisque is then carted out and finished tableside with a dazzling flambe of lobster meat in cognac. Exquisite!


MENU: $130
