2019 Hale ‘Aina Awards Ballot



VOTE for your favorite Hawai‘i restaurants in HONOLULU Magazine’s Annual HALE ‘AINA AWARDS!

The Hale ‘Aina Awards are Hawai‘i’s most prestigious and longest-running dining award now in its 35th year of recognizing Hawai‘i’s most-loved restaurants. Pick your favorite from the list of the top six nominees in each category. The winning restaurants will be announced at the Hale ‘Aina Awards on Sept. 30 at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel.

Here’s how the 2019 Hale ‘Aina Ballot nominations are selected:

In each category, there are seven available slots for nominations. Four are filled with the gold-, silver- and bronze- and top write-in award-winning restaurants from the previous year. Two restaurants are nominated by the editorial team of HONOLULU Magazine and one slot is reserved as a write-in so readers can nominate their favorite restaurant in each category.

Cast your vote by June 30, 2018 and you'll be entered to win dining certificates!  Readers who vote also receive a $35 discount off each Hale ‘Aina general admission ticket.
