This place looks spectacular. I was going to surprise my now ex-wife with a trip to Hawaii for our first anniversary and this is where I planned on taking her the night of our Anniversary. Needless to say Im glad i took the vacation insurance. But damn I wish I would've went by myself then. I will be there within a year. If your up to it Gecko, id like to dump a couple with ya and talk tiki.

Gecko - awesome pics of La Mariana... We live in Kapolei and Mrs. MTM and I go there from time to time to get our tiki on! Like Da Gecko says - it's da kine! Everyone that works at La Mariana's is really great and they go out of their way to make you feel welcome. The vibe is so cool that it doesn't take much imagination to transport yourself back 40 years or so.

But watch out for Saturday nights- they put in a piano bar and Saturday is the night it's active and it's open mic night. I can only take so much of horrible renditions of old broadway show tunes! You have been forewarned!

Thanks for sharing Gecko-

Aloha Nui

MTM

Awesome photos, MachTiki! Those, along with Gecko's, have inspired the four members of MTM to return to La Mariana for another evening dedicated to the consumption of tikificated libations. We are planning to go next Friday(I believe)... Anyone else wanna go?

Happy to have been able to get together with some ohana at La Mariana's the last night of our stay on Oahu.

Had hoped Mark Swanson might have joined us but he did make a guest appearance from Haleiwa by cell phone! We've gotta plan better next time Mark. Maybe Tiki Shark can swim over from the big island too!

Boy La Mariana's just drips history. Don't miss this joint!

When going to Oahu there is nothing better than meeting dabigpuka and his family. Look at that necklace Gecko is wearing if you never got the meaning of the name before. Gecko and Freddie, Ailie, Wendy and Ben are all part of La Mariana for us. Being there with them makes the island so special it's hard to go anywhere else. The other Wendy
