Calling all foodies, this is the luau for you!

Rarely does food take center stage at a Hawaiian luau, but the newly reopened Diamond Head Luau is proving that it can be done. They’ve partnered with a favorite local restaurant to provide the traditional luau fare you would expect, but with surprising additions. Kalua Pig and Lomi Lomi Salmon are served along side Braised Short Ribs and Lobster Linguine. Sounds good, right?

The well appointed buffet isn’t the only thing that sets this luau apart from other luaus. The typical luau on Oahu can seat hundreds of people a night, but Diamond Head Luau is tiny by comparison. This is a small venue, with a capacity under 100 people. That’s just enough people to make a luau feel like a party, without feeling crowded or impersonal. 

Finally, despite the laid-back atmosphere, the entertainment at Diamond Head Luau is world-class. They have one of the freshest and liveliest luau shows around, featuring a talented cast of performers. You’ll enjoy a night of live music, Polynesian dancing, and a thrilling fire knife performance to end the night. 

Friday Night Foodie Experience

The Diamond Head Luau Foodie Experience is unlike any other. Diamond Head has created the “Taste of Hawaii”culinary experience, featuring signature dishes prepared by some of the area’s finest restaurants and food vendors. Forget about long buffet lines and bland dishes. Instead, you’ll find high quality Hawaiian and Asian inspired cuisine, made from fresh local ingredients. Each dish is proudly served by the very people who prepared them. The luau grounds are lined with food stalls to choose from. Each restaurant serves a signature dish and luau guests are given the opportunity to try them all. Bring your appetite though, because there are eight vendors to choose from and the portions are generous. Only available on Fridays.

Diamond Head’s friendly, relaxed atmosphere and freestyle dining makes it feel like a lively block party. Come ready to try lots of new foods, mingle with fellow travelers, and have a great time!
