HONOLULU -  Bali Steak & Seafood Restaurant, the culinary landmark at the Hilton Hawaiian Village Beach Resort & Spa, has been named a Four Diamond Restaurant by AAA Hawaii for an unprecedented 21st consecutive year. No other restaurant in Hawaii has received that distinction, and there are only a handful of restaurants with such a distinction across the United States.

“The AAA Diamond rating system remains an objective and consistent method to measure upscale dining establishments and lodgings which AAA members rely upon,” said AAA Hawaii Acting Branch Manager Chris Olvera. “We congratulate these hospitality professionals who offer high caliber service, hospitality and care to their guests in accommodations that are beautiful, clean and comfortable.”

More than 51 million AAA members and the public depend on the hotel and restaurant Diamond ratings in the AAA TourBook® to help them with their travel decisions. The award signifies that a hotel or restaurant met AAA’s objective rating criteria and levels of excellence during an unannounced inspection.

Bali Steak & Seafood in the Rainbow Tower offers a menu that includes USDA prime meats on its menu, plus an extensive wine list. The restaurant has hosted a number of celebrities and heads of state in the past. Bali Steak & Seafood Restaurant is open Tuesday through Saturday and reservations can be made by calling the resort at (808) 949-4321 and asking for dining reservations.

The restaurant has also recently announced the appointment of a new chef, Brett Villarmia, most recently of the Mauna Kea Resort on the Big Island of Hawaii. Villarmia was showcased at the Festival Gourmet in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, a two-week festival where chefs from around the world showcase their food to international travelers. He began his career as a student in culinary arts, then worked in some of Honolulu’s most prestigious restaurants, such as Russell Siu’s 3660 On The Rise, AlanWong’s, and Hoku’s at The Kahala. He has also worked as an executive chef in Kokage (Seoul, Korea), and at Mao Asian Bistro and La Tour Restaurant in Colorado.
