Since reopening and re-branding in November, 100 Sails Restaurant & Bar continues to impress kamaaina diners and visitors alike with its fresh island cuisine served up within an inviting atmosphere. Guests can settle in with family and friends amid the spacious revamped dining area, while setting sail on a memorable dining experience.
Situated on the third floor of Hawaii Prince Hotel Waikiki, 100 Sails Restaurant & Bar incorporates the talents of chef de cuisine Joseph Almoguera and his heart-of-the-house team. The restaurant develops a “sit back and relax on the patio” vibe flanked by stunning views of Ala Wai Yacht Harbor — a perfect vantage point to watch the sunset.
In addition to serving its popular breakfast, lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch buffets, 100 Sails Restaurant & Bar also has rolled out an alluring a la carte menu available throughout the day. As a special inside scoop for Dining Out readers, Korean Fried Cauliflower ($12) has been added to the “Small Bites” menu, and the appetizer pairs perfectly with a pau hana beverage. The dish is served with Chef Almoguera’s house-made Korean sauce, and is lightly breaded before being fried to golden-brown perfection.
Big Island Ribeye ($42) has emerged as a popular entree on the a la carte menu, and the succulent grass-fed, hormone-free beef is accompanied by locally grown vegetables, Truffle Fries and Tamarind Steak Sauce. 100 Sails Restaurant & Bar also serves up fresh Catch of the Day (market price), including Parmesan Crusted Ono with White Truffle Aioli served alongside Sweet & Red Potato Risotto, Sweet Pea Foam and Roasted Watermelon Radish & Heirloom Tomato with Pea Tendrils.
“With our theme of ‘fresh island cuisine,’ we make it a priority to include as many locally sourced items as possible to enhance the freshness and quality of each dish,” Almoguera says. “With the a la carte menu being available all day, there are more options for guests to enjoy, and we’ve received a lot of positive feedback.”
For dessert, Lilikoi Creme Brulee ($10) steals the show, and is one of multiple options crafted daily by the restaurant’s pastry chef.
100 Sails Restaurant & Bar has also introduced a host of popular happy hour specials offered daily in the spacious bar and lounge area from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. and again from 8 to 10 p.m. Guests are treated to tremendous value with complimentary self or valet parking with purchase as well as $2 off draught beers, including the popular Sierra Nevada “Tropical Torpedo,” and $2 off wines — such as Costa de Oro Cabernet Sauvignon Napa — along with a complimentary cheese and fruit taster. Diners also can take advantage of the Sampler Trio available during happy hour for just $5; throughout February, this can’t-miss offering includes an appetizer sampler coupled with the guest’s choice of three draught beer samples.
Diners also are invited to 100 Sails Restaurant & Bar for a special Valentine’s Day Dinner Menu ($79 for adults, $39.50 for children ages 6-12) Tuesday, Feb. 14.
The flavorful menu will feature fresh fruits and salads, sushi, sashimi and snow crab legs, as well as Sauteed Clams with Black Bean Sauce, Baked Lobster Tails with Coconut Saffron Sauce, Prime Rib with Au Jus and Creamy Horseradish and the pastry chef’s selection of assorted desserts — to name just a few of the choices available.
