Chef Mavro restaurant and La Mer restaurant both have retained the AAA Five Diamond rating they first earned years ago.
La Mer at Halekulani in Waikiki was first awarded its Five Diamond status in 1990, and Chef Mavro has maintained its since 2008, while several other restaurants have fallen from the lofty height, often because the hotels in which they are located have closed for renovation.
Four Diamond winners and the year of their first rating are, Bali Steak & Seafood at the Hilton Hawaiian Village (1989), Hoku’s at the Kahala Hotel & Resort (2002), and Orchids at Halekulani (1995) on Oahu; Brown’s Beach House at the Fairmont Orchid (2011) and Manta & Pavilion Wine Bar at the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel (2014) on Hawaii island; red salt at the Koa Kea Hotel & Resort on Kauai (2015) and Spago at the Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea (2010).
Restaurants undergo a thorough, unannounced evaluation for consideration of possible AAA approval and rating.
For a Five Diamond rating, restaurants receive the most extensive reviews with multiple unannounced evaluations. AAA employs full-time inspectors who review restaurants nationwide.
