When you enter through the doors at Atlantis Seafood and Steak, the first thing you’ll notice is its mesmerizing decor. The second thing you’ll realize as soon as you sit down, is that the menu boasts an impressive selection of items that everyone can enjoy.
The ceiling of the restaurant is a ship’s frame, surrounded by lights that mimic a starry evening — you’ll forget you’re still in Waikiki.
“We like to think of ourselves as friendly with very warm service, in a fancy, aquatic-themed restaurant,” says executive general manager Steven Matsuno.
Located in the middle of Waikiki on Kalakaua Avenue and surrounded by retail shops, the restaurant has been in business since 2006.
“Waikiki is bustling right now, and it’s a great time to rediscover it,” shares Matsuno.
For a limited time until the end of the year, Atlantis Fillet, the restaurant’s fillet mignon is only $49 (usually priced at $59). Cooked to your liking and served with the vegetable of the day and a baked potato, Matusno says this dish remains a favorite with tourists and locals.
For something a little more surf than turf, Seafood Boat ($39) is an appetizer great for sharing.
“It’s hands-down our most popular appetizer,” Matsuno reveals.
An offering of a variety of different raw seafood items, this dish includes crab claws, mussels, clams, shrimp cocktail and oysters served on an ice platter.
Dine with someone and you can enjoy the best the restaurant has to offer from the land and sea.
