During our recent stay at Disney's Aulani resort, we spent a lot of meals enjoying the spectacular beach view from the 'Ama'Ama beach restaurant. I have to admit that i was initially skeptical after reading some mixed reviews. But, after trying a few other options both at Aulani and outside Aulani, we came to the conclusion that 'Ama'Ama was our favorite place to eat. It definitely is not cheap, but the truth is that Hawaiian restaurants are not cheap. The view is spectacular, service was consistently excellent and the food varied from ok to excellent.
My first meal was lunch and I ordered the fish tacos, made with some sort of spear caught fish, and it was good. I think the tacos could have used a little more stuff on them, but they were still tasty and the fish was quite flavorful -- cost $18, as I said, not cheap but not unusual for Hawaii.
