Humuhumu’s description

Two-story tiki bar and Polynesian restaurant in Orlando's Wall Street Plaza, owned by a developer who owns six other clubs in the complex. Waitiki opened in August of 2004, and features a bar made of antique ironwood, outdoor balconies, many wood carvings and teak flooring. It is not an immersive tiki environment, but there is much artwork from modern-day tiki artists like Flounder, Joe & Donella Vitale and local tiki carver Wayne Coombs

. Tropical cocktails are available, and the food is a more modern take on Polynesian cuisine, with a focus on seafood.

Maybe if cocktails were in rocks glasses instead of pints they wouldn't be 'watery' tasting? Nice actual tikis & art to see but that's all that's tiki there - could visit with my family tho

This place is within walking distance from Aku Aku. It's more or a beer /sports bar in a more touristy section of downtown Orlando. The decor is great. The drinks were not. No mugs. Lots of different monitors and daiquiri options but the one drink I got was very watered down. No tiki music. Great men's bathroom wallpaper. Definately worth visiting since you are right up the street from Aku Aku but not the best Orlando has to offer

There are some amazing pieces of art here, including what I believe to be an original Leeteg which has been cropped down from its original size, some Flounders, Vitales (J&D) and some interesting carved tikis.
That said, it's still not a tiki bar. The drinks were almost undrinkable (sickly sweet and hot with booze), the music was putrid and loud, they had the basketball game on (which sadly eclipsed the beauty of the pufferfish lamps) and it was, at the time we were there this evening, hosting the (I'm not making this up) 'Beer Olympics' outside.
The upstairs Lounge is decorated rather nicely in mid-century modern with a few tiki injections and is a great space with a lovely deck. Sadly it was closed for a private function when we were there but it had a much better vibe than downstairs. Or maybe it was just because it was empty. :/
