Alexandre Trancher, Chef de Cuisine at La Mer

“We dined at LaMer to celebrate our 47th anniversary, because our son and daughter in law had spent their honeymoon at Halekulani and had said it was the most elegant dining they had ever experienced. They were so right! The ambience, service and meal was the best ever and I cant rate it high enough!”
