I can see this is a good local hang-out. We actually went back and did a second round on the steak salad. Was only a couple things on the menu assumed gluten free. Staff has little knowledge or suggestion on the topic. Other than that, looking for local check it out

This was my favourite spot in Pahoa! I had the calamari as recommended by other TripAdvisors and it did not disappoint, very tasty indeed! My wife and I shared the Kal Bi Ribs and Kaleos Big Beef Burgers. The short ribs were extremely tender and flavourful and the burger was one of the tastiest I've had in a long time.... More

I love the atmosphere of this place. This restaurant is busy and you should try to make a reservation in advance. I love the live band while you eat. Serving is nice portions. Its a great place for savory food and good times!

Few restaurants deserve 5 stars. And I don't often want to eat dinner at the same restaurant almost every night, no matter how good they are. But we enjoyed dining at Kaleo's for 7 out of 9 nights that we stayed in Hawaii. The food was consistently delicious with many choices. The cordial service was well above average. It isn't... More

Stopped in for lunch after the Lava boat tour. What a great find this place is! We stuck to the basics - burger, fish sandwich, salad, brew. Excellent, tasty and served up with a good helping of professional waitstaff attention.

Kaleo’s means The Voice and what it speaks of is a congenial atmosphere and good food. For the locals of Pahoa and those in the Puna District neighborhood, it offers a nice place to meet up and entertain without having to spend the day doing the cooking. The offerings are always generous portions, the drinks well mixed, and the pupus... More

We stopped in twice. Once for a good nice evening out dinner, the other we stopped in for burgers after a day of hiking. All the food & service was good. Get the cheesecake, its the best probably on the whole island!

The coconut shrimp appetizer is to die for! I hate seafood and couldn't get enough! My mom said it was the best fish and chips she's ever had. Loved this place ... definitely will be visiting again before the end of the trip

I live in the area, and this place has the best food Pahoa has to offer. Unfortunately the service has been TERRIBLE the last four times I've been. I have no idea what is going on, but management needs to get on this fast. I was made to feel like any request was a hassle. Male waiter just had a... More
