Find sumptuous offerings at Prince Court.

A restful meal at Prince Court means leaving the frenetic hustle of Waikiki behind, if only for the duration of a short meal. Here, the intoxicating sights, smells and tastes of the Islands offer a welcome respite from the bustling streets below.

“Prince Court is a place where friends and family get together to relax and dine in a casual atmosphere and setting,” says executive chef Eddie Mizuno.

Founded in 1990 on the third floor of Hawaii Prince Hotel Waikiki, Prince Court has become renowned over the years both for its innovative menu of fresh island flavors as well as breathtaking panoramic vistas overlooking Ala Wai Yacht Harbor, where on any given occasion, diners can view spectacular sunsets over the glistening Pacific Ocean, outrigger canoe paddlers cutting through the surf, sailboats heading out to sea and even a rainbow or two right outside the generous glass windows.

Fresh seafood and great views await at the Prince Court.

But it is in the dining room where guests can enjoy an authentic taste of Hawai‘i. Prepared using nothing but the freshest of ingredients from mauka (mountains) to makai (sea) brought in on a daily basis, the menu at the Prince Court epitomizes contemporary island cuisine at its best.

Mizuno has a background of 25 years in the culinary field, effortlessly blending classic culinary techniques from East and West to create mouth-watering, island-inspired dishes such as sauteed opakapaka, grilled prawn salad, blackened medallions of Angus New York steak, Australian rack of lamb and slow-roasted prime rib.

The Prince Court is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week with both prix fixe and award-winning buffet menus. But the best days to stop in are on the weekends, when the restaurant rolls out its seafood dinner buffet, overflowing with the widest assortment freshly caught seafood imaginable. Additionally, each Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. the Prince Court holds a Hawaiian lunch buffet with local-style delicacies such as lomi lomi salmon, kalua pork, pork lau lau and “da bes kine” homemade oxtail soup you will ever encounter. Sunday morning from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. there is a brunch buffet of breakfast favorites that includes assorted pastries, waffles, made-to-order omelets, sushi station, hot selections, desserts, fresh fruit and chilled juices.
