Top 10 best Hawaii restaurants: HAWAII Magazine Readers’ Choice Awards 2015

It’s no secret that Hawaii has an abundance of delicious dining options. In fact, HAWAII Magazine dedicates an entire issue to the Islands' food and foodie culture each year! Wondering where to go next time you’re in the Islands? We’ve got a roundup of the 10 best restaurants in three different price ranges courtesy of our readers’ votes below. (If you're in the mood for something specific, you should also check out our lists of Hawaii's best ethnic food spots.)

Last summer we asked our more than 200,000-strong HAWAII Magazine reader ohana to share their favorite Hawaii things for our third annual Readers’ Choice Awards. They submitted thousands of ballots filled with their nominations for Hawaii’s best hotels, resorts, bed-and-breakfasts, indoor and outdoor activities, places to nosh, swim and snorkel, go road tripping and much more.

We tallied votes across 98 categories to bring you this year’s 617 HAWAII Magazine Readers’ Choice Award winners. We’ve even compared this year’s list with last so you can see how time has changed rankings within each category.

You can find all of our winners in the March/April 2015 issue of HAWAII Magazine currently on sale nationwide. Want it now? Head to Apple iTunes or Google play stores to download the issue instantly.

We’ve already shared 21 lists of our readers’ favorite things and you can see links to all of them at the end of the post. Until then… Bon Appétit!
