Been her twice, and will go again. Location can't be beat - right on the beach, feet in the sand. Wide selection of food and cocktails. First time was late (9ish) and food was no longer being served, live music was wrapping up. Lots of people that were very happy. Bar staff were friendly and fast. Second time was for... More

If you want to dine at the beach - this is the place. We went for lunch and overall it was pretty good. The service was friendly, attentive and food was delivered promptly after ordering. We had a variety of salads and sandwiches. Food was above average but nothing special. I would go again just for the location and view...... More

Loved our early dinners at Lava Lava. The sunsets were spectacular. Food was good and service was quick. This is a very popular spot so make sure you arrive early enough to get a seat before the sunsets!

Atmosphere great, esp sunset. Games for kids on the beach - a nice distraction while waiting. Service prompt! Food a bit better than average.

We had appetizers at the bar. Restaurant is quite busy. We walked over on the beach from the Marriott. Beautiful location.

Says it's a club, but it's a nice restaurant/bar right on the beach. Best chowder I've ever had. Happy hour prices are good, but main meals and pretty expensive. Very windy at sunset, so was a bit chilly. Nice views, good food. Drinks were ok, nothing special. Very busy place but lots of staff. Games are in the sand if... More

We booked our table at sunset. It was kind of cloudy, so the sunset was not that great. However, the location was awesome. Our table was right on the beach so my son could play on the beach while we waited for our food. The food was great and the service was good. There was also a live music and... More

Loved Lava Lava Beach club. Went right before sunset for dinner and enjoyed a wonderful guitar player with a Hawaiian dancer as we ate. The view is incredible the food very good (my dinner was served in half a pineapple - my husband was so jealous) and the drinks cold! Place gets crowded, so make a reservation!

We were here four years ago and looking forward to another visit, but unfortunately this restaurant has gone downhill. The meal I ordered was lukewarm and the batter on the fish and chips was soggy. We had far better food served at the "Island Fish and Chips" in Kings' shopping mall for half the price. Sorry Lava Lava, you may... More
