    Hey everyone
    Wonder if there is any locals who can help me.
    I am getting married in June on Oahu. It is going to be a very small wedding, 10 guest MAX. Just trying to think of ways to feed my hungry family after the wedding ceremony. I think we'll probably go for a restuarant, but, to be a bit different I was looking at the Sunset Dinner Cruises?
    Ill give you a bit about my background, my mum is from Hawaii and moved to England. We're going over this summer and want to get married. We go over as regualrly as we can, but would really appreciate some local knowledge.
    I basically want to know if anyone has has a similar experience, or know about any really really good restuarants, or are there any dinner cruise that are any good and not just tourist traps.
    Therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls;
    It tolls for thee

      Hi Caitlin,
      I've been looking into something like that for a small dinner party too...don't know how these will help but
      Star of Honolulu - they tend to do cruises for over 30 people, i don't know how willing they would be to accommodate less and they are also quite expensive even for the 3 star option
      I have been looking into Tiki's Grill and Bar, its totally different and from reviews I have read of them they are really accommodating to requests.

      You could also look into something in a hotel, I've looked at hiring the Rainbow patio at the Hilton Hawaiian Village, it isn't too expensive.

      Have you also looked into having an outdoor luau?

          Hey thanks for the suggestions!! My mum suggested one of the hotels, Moana Surer rider in Waikiki, and we could stay the night in the hotel (to get away from the familly apartment on our wedding night ).

                  Check out Willow's. It's a buffet and the food is very good, and the place is very pretty. It's more of a "locals" place as not many tourists find their way over there. We visit every time I'm there. They do weddings right there on site too so they can accomodate a small party with your own private area of tables if you wanted. Welcome to The Willows Restaurant

                    I highly recommend Germaine's Luau as an option, esp. for such a small party. It was 72/adult which includes the bus ride to & from our hotel, 3 drink tickets and of course your buffet dinner. The atmosphere was just soooooooooo warm & friendly, we were all made to feel like 'ohana' there. Not only do you get a buffet dinner but a beautiful, one of a kind show. There were about 7 buses, and each bus had 1 group leader... our leader was amazing!! he was so funny, and helped us all become friends with one another. i went with a group of 11 (our family) with a full bus, and we had our own table. it was unforgettable!!!

                    my reception dinner was actually at Tiki's (Food was DELICIOUS!!!!) but after going to Germaine's i wish we had it there instead w/ all the fun stuff included!
