We had been hiking along the beach trail and had lunch here. We were two couples and the ladies turned back first so had a head start on us. A great beach location and lots of choices on their menu. All of us enjoyed our choices. A great place to have a drink by the water.

A great place to end any day. Get a drink, order pupu's, sit in a chair in the sand, watch the sunset and listen to the music as the waves crash on the shore. Not a bad idea to also have dinner there.

Lava Lava is beyond delicious!! Sizzling shrimp, fish sandwiches, fish & chips, all the freshest you can get. Super yummy chowder! The restaurant is right on the beach, beautiful view. Waves crashing on the rocks, sea turtles and the beyond blue ocean. Do not miss your chance to eat here!

We went for dinner and had a few cocktails and one appetizer and shared a meal as I wasn't too hungry. The place was very busy and it definitely seems a hot spot for tourists. Menu had a large selection and a little pricey but the whole area is that way so nothing out of the ordinary. They take reservations... More

Great location! Great Local Music! Excellent food and service! If you are in Kona, Waikaloa, or surronding areas you need to stop in for dinner! Plan your dinner around sunset and you won't regret the view or the atmosphere!!

This is one cool place to hang out in when you're in the Waikoloa Resort on the Big Island. Great food, cocktails, and really fun vibe. This place is right on the water so you get a wonderful laid back experience when you stop by for a drink or a meal. The recommended entrees are the Ahi Nachos, the Pineapple... More
