Best Bites: Michel’s is the Top Pick for Romantic Gourmands

(Sponsored) Michel’s has the timeless views, a classic locavore menu and old fashioned service to back it up.




For 60 years, Michel’s at the Colony Surf has enchanted diners with its unrivaled oceanfront views, top-notch service and classic European fare expressed with a touch of local flair. Magic is made when chef Eberhard “Hardy” Kintscher marrys his European training with the islands’ bounty.


That same level of care and attention is paid to the iconic tableside dishes that light up the dining room all night long. From the ambiance of the setting sun, to the seductive cusine and the storied history of the Colony Surf, it’s only appropriate that Michel’s receive the 2022 Hale ʻAina Award for the Most Romantic Restaurant in Honolulu.


In this episode, we dine with Tencey Ogawa from First Hawaiian Bank and enjoy the Best Bites from chef Hardy’s menu including Michelʻs signature lobster bisque, fresh ʻahi tartare and a decadent chocolate cake.
