Dinner at Michel’s

David and I recently had a fabulous dinner at Michel’s at the Colony Surf.

The Colony Surf is a condominium, not a hotel. It is located near the Waikiki Aquarium on Kalakaua Avenue. It is an upscale building with a fine dining restaurant. We were treated like royalty.

Since it is a condominium, you are encouraged to use the complimentary valet parking at the door.

Warning: It is not ADA compliant. We had to walk down 5 steps to get to the restaurant. I managed okay without assistance, but David struggled with his walker. The Colony Surf was built long before the ADA became law. It definitely is not for people in wheelchairs.

Anyway, here are photos of the event.

We had a fabulous time at Michel’s!!!

    You are quite a gourmand. That does seem like a classy place.

    Oh, I just checked, There are two definitions of gourmand.
    (1) a person who enjoys eating and often eats too much.
    (2) a connoisseur of good food.

    Of course, I mean the latter. 🙂

    It does looks like a wonderful meal in a delightful setting. Glad you were both able to make it there in spite of the steps.

    What a lovely place. But yes, you’d think they’d have some ADA compliance, especially since it is a condo community as well.

    • Sue Says:

      Dear Marmeladegypsy, from what i understand, the restaurant business is precarious, at best. ADA compliance isn’t cheap. (All that pounding up perfectly good concrete, then pouring new – squeezing around limited space … what? for about 3 people ;/
      Actually, i’m surprised that nanny-state hasn’t yet taken a ruler to michael. Maybe, because Michael’s is luxury dining ; perhaps, if the business was a plain old eatery, the rules might be different.

    I can jump and run, you make me feel humble. And scared.
    Glad you managed, what a great view!!!
    Oh, and now I am more than hungry! This all looks great!
    The towels remind me of flying. ahhh when can we travel again?
    Yum post!

    I have lived here all my life and I don’t think I have ever eaten there. I am more a Zippy’s and take out kind of person and I admire your gourmet choices!
