Tasty tropical cocktails, the coconut shrimp and spicy chicken bites are yummy bar food there.
Small, cozy tiki bar in a neighborhood in Alameda. Quiet enough to have an intimate conversation, without the crowds of Smuggler's or the snobbiness of Tonga Room.
Any of the bowls
Great tiki bar. Fills up at the weekends to the point of one-in-one-out. Good for parties, dangerous amounts of rum and blurry times in general.
Dog friendly, but you can't drink in the patio. Huh?
Dogs allowed on patio, but not booze. What's the point?
They have Zacapa XO rum!!!
Great atmosphere, crowd, and tasty drinks.
The Zombie here is delicious.
Delicious, boozy cocktails. The strength of each drink is noted on the menu so you can plan your evening accordingly.
Forbidden Island's self-named drink is delicious, and you can even keep the amazing tiki mug it comes in for a few bucks extra!
The painkiller is truly delicious, and so smooth I could drink it for breakfast. Try one.
This bar is fun! Patio outside.
It's all good...
Service is good. I want 5 zombie drinks best drink of all. Scorpion bowl is good shown below. Malania I think its called has spices sweet spices.
Must try the zombie! Best drink ever. If with a big group virgin sacrifice. With two ppl scorpion bowl.
I love this place. I often have cravings for their "manbrolada" and "Macadamian Chi Chi's." Best Tiki bar on the island.
tiki drinks and spicy chicken bites
Get the macadamia nut chi-chi, trust me.
Hemingway daiquiri and painkillers
Happy Hour until 7 most days, Island Mai Tai, Beer and Grog at a reduced price.
Siren of the sea.
The Painkiller (3 shot) is their best drink! All the others rock as well!
RUM RUM RUM RUM
Great Mai Tai if you like the original recipe instead of the syrupy sweet stuff.
Come early finding a seat can be a little rough so be prepared to possibly stand. personally liked that they something for everyone , me being not much of a drinker really leilani volcano.
Love this place! The snacks are tasty and affordable; the drinks (including virgin ones) are delicious, and the servers are courteous!
Great deal on the Scorpion Bowl on Sunday
Must try the Mai-Tai.
Two hours after placing the order you'll get the wrong fries as you're about to leave and be expected to pay for them.
We had horrible service, I would not return.
A note to the hapless designated driver -- the drink has a flower next to it on the menu, a non alcoholic version is available
Love the monkeypod
Macadamia Chi-Chi is absolutely my favorite. The Virgin Sacrifice is strong and should not be paired with a Zombie, unless someone else is driving and will be helping you walk out.
Cool interior, fun clientele, and great island-themed drinks. Try the Mai Tai!
You can bring your own grub, and the taqueria down the street is a great option. Not only are they cool with it, they'll even bring plasticware and napkins!
The zombie is pretty bomb. Just saying.
Strong fruity drinks (and more), a great jukebox, crab wontons, and ambience for days! You can't go wrong here. Dress in your vintage tiki finest.
The monkeypod is yummy. Be sure to write your wish on a dollar bill and stick it on the ceiling with an umbrella.
Fabulous decor and a nice outdoor patio give Forbidden Island a classic tiki lounge feel.
The drinks here FUCKIN SUCK!!!
Don't miss the forbidden Island (a grog of lime, pineapple, spices and liqueurs, served in a souvenir "kapu" tiki mug) and the Chamborlada (a pina colada with a float of black raspberry Chambord).
The zombie is amazing!!
macadamia nut chichi.
Be sure to check out Otto's DJ night the first Wednesday of every month!
Get here early to grab a table! Place gets filled up fast!
Start a rum tally with the bar tender and sample some awesome rum!
I literally had two drinks and had a normal buzz. I wanted one more drink and they wouldn't allow it. My friends and I spent a lot of money here and I'm pretty pissed.
Big fan, but some problems. Bathrooms usually smell really bad and never seem to get touched all night considering how many folks they have in here.
