The 20 Best Hawaii Fine Dining Restaurants: HAWAII Magazine Readers’ Choice Awards 2014


Last summer and fall, we asked our reader ohana to share their picks of the best of everything Hawaii for our 2014 HAWAII Magazine Readers’ Choice Awards.

Thousands of our Mainland U.S., Hawaii and international readers responded, packing their Readers’ Choice ballots with hundreds of selections for everything from their best Hawaii hotels and resorts, bed-and-breakfasts and inns, beaches, spas and golf courses to their best Hawaii places to eat, scenic road trips, fashion designers, helicopter tours, zipline courses and much, much more. All of it, in more than 90 categories.
