The surf's always up at LuLu's, which has a five-star view of Waikiki Beach and its wave action. The casual, open-air diner has an unobstructed second-floor view of the beach. Counters along the beach-facing walls allow customers to belly up to a bar and watch the surf. The restaurant is cute, with knotty-pine paneling, surfboards and outrigger paddles decorating the walls. It's open 22 hours daily. Burgers are the specialty; try the Magnum P.I. with bacon, cheddar and guacamole ($9.95).
We loved. . . the view: palm trees swaying in the breeze, with brilliant blue sky above and blue water below.
We didn't love. . . the food, which is average. But the view and ambience may make up for it.
