During our stay at Waikiki Parc Hotel, we were invited to have dinner at House Without a Key. House Without a Key is a restaurant located at Halekulani Hotel, right across Waikiki Parc. Being that they are sister properties, Waikiki Parc offers in-room orders from this restaurant. We haven’t experienced dining at Hosue Without a Key, therefore, made an effort to skip out on the room service and walk to the restaurant.

From the entrance of Halekulani, pass the gorgeous pool, lies the oceanfront restaurant, House Without a Key. Dinner starts at 5:30 pm and ends at9 pm. There are indoor and outdoor seating which both provide a perfect view of the ocean. If you plan it right, it has the possibility of being the most romantic sunset dinner!


During clear weather, it’s best to sit outdoors. The soft ocean breeze across your face as you sit in the front row watching live Hula dancers is incredible. The hula show every evening starts at 5:30 pm.

We started off with delicious drinks – Landon had fruit punch smoothie (the best version he’s ever had!), and I had the famous Mai Tai with sugarcane. Our dining started off great with such beautiful presentation!


Every starter on the menu looked terrific; we tasted a few of the seafood options. Every food item tasted fresh and was a perfect size for a light appetizer. Most of the choices from the menu were shrimp or fish, so if you’re a seafood lover, you will love their appetizers!

Breaded Puna Goat Cheese Salad with hirabara greens, hearts of palm, grapefruit segments, poi dressing – $20

We ordered the Bread Puna Goat Cheese Salad. It was delicious! The poi dressing was out of this world along with the crispy goat cheese. We were more than satisfied with the appetizers and salad that we skipped on ordering any main dishes entirely.

Halekulani’s Coconut Cake with vanilla crème anglaise, raspberry coulis – $11

All of House Without Key desserts is only $11. Although we were stuffed, we had to make room for sweets. We went with the famous Halekulani’s Coconut Cake. It’s no surprise why this is the signature cake; it was incredible, especially with the vanilla crème anglaise. Make sure to save some room for dessert!

House without a key

House Without a Key is a great location to have a nice dinner. The oceanfront and lively ambiance are both excellent attributes to visit. Be sure to make a reservation as they get booked out! If you don’t make a reservation, be prepared to wait approximately an hour for a table especially during dinner. We can’t wait to come back and have dinner here again!
