Although Bonjour Hawaii advertises itself as a French and Pacific restaurant, colorful Japanese signage and menu items like sushi pizza illustrate the eatery's obvious Eastern influences. In addition to fusion dishes, Bonjour Hawaii offers up meals for just about every taste. Their "Hawaiian Sweet" brunch platter is a good way to start the day, and the BBQ Lunch set—complete with grilled shrimp, chicken skewers, pork, and plenty of sides—is an affordable midday option. Dishes are embellished with grilled pineapple and delicate orchid flowers, small details that complement the kitschy décor (think lots of Astroturf, palm trees, and vintage coffee ads). Three spacious floors full of bright colors and open spaces provide the perfect place to escape the usually cramped and crowded streets of the city. In fact, the majority of the restaurant's patrons come for the atmosphere rather than the food, which is subpar at best. The outdoor patios, adorned with beach umbrellas and speakers playing tropical music, create an environment ideal for sipping on the restaurant's homemade sparkling refreshments, Hitachino beer, and tiki drinks topped with cocktail umbrellas and maraschino cherries. For a quintessentially Hawaiian experience, go for the piña colada, a tasty classic served in a pineapple.
