  • Perfect Ladies Night Out

    We had a fantastic time! The food and drinks were really good and the show was a ton of fun! We really enjoyed being transported to the islands for an evening - the setting on Mission Bay was phenomenal. Everyone we interacted with was friendly and welcoming.

  • Great tropical feel with gorgeous bay views.

    If you Have an opportunity to attend the luau, I highly recommend it!
    It is top notch and rivals any luau that I have seen on the islands.

  • Catamaran's Sunset Luau were Amazing

    The food was great with the roasted pig and all and the Hawaiian hula dancers and flame twirlers were out of this world! Emma checked us in with her happy smile and Kristina cheerfully lead us to our seats. All the staff is friendly and helpful. It was a good night!

  • Highlight of Our Summer

    We recently attended a Sunset Luau at the Catamaran and it was probably one of the highlights of our summer. There were dances from the different islands and delicious food. We would have to say - we'll return again to do this next year!

  • Just Gets Better and Better!

    Their show changes each year so it is always new and fresh. The food was exceptional. Hot, fresh and flavorful, and in a buffet too! Not always an easy task, but the staff handles it with ease and a ready smile. You just can't go wrong here.
