I came here 3.5 years ago, and was very happy to find that it hadn't changed. Sitting with your toes in the sand, right next to the water, is just really lovely. The beach itself is really pretty, especially for sunset. Food is expensive but really nice.

This was a fantastic bar/ restaurant to have a beverage and meal after a day at the beach. Waiters were very friendly and the happy hour apps were great.

This is a little gem, known to most locals and those visitors who frequent Waikoloa. Happy Hour is usually 3-5 on weekends and 6 pm on the week days, at least during this past January(2017). The food is fairly typical of Happy Hour fare, but notable are the pork sliders, and the nachos-but the latter should be ordered with a... More

Good food in a beautiful setting. The happy hour prices are a real bargain. Sit under the open roof or on the beach with your feet in the sand. Take a break and jump into the ocean for swimming or snorkeling!

We were staying at the hotel very Lava Lava is for about a week, so we had many meals there and drinks etc. The service was really bad. We had one good waiter, 2 ok, many that were really poor and one very rude bar tender. The service was so slow. Once orders were taken the food would arrive fast... More

Not only are the views unbeatable -- the food is great and they make the best Mai tai on the island. What do we think of LavaLava? Suffice to say we've eaten lunch there 5 times in seven days!!!

On our recent visit to the Big Island we actually ate here twice: New Year's Eve and about a week later. The menu is pretty diverse with a good selection of creative cocktails and beer as well. The setting keeps us coming back again and again with a fantastic view over A-bay. Be sure to make reservations within 30 minutes... More
