I’ve only gone for Happy Hour, 3-5. I think it’s every day, but not totally sure. Great Mai Tai’s. Tried their other Happy Hour special drink, Gillian’s Girl which was good, but not great. Appetizers (pupus) and desserts at Happy Hour also very good. Lots...More

We are here as a family. The wait wasn’t bad as long as you do the call ahead seating. The view is spectacular! However, that’s about all that the place has to offer. We all ordered different dishes. None of us liked our food. My...More

Love the outdoor, beach front venue of this restaurant. We went on a busy night but were seated sooner than promised. The server was attentive (though needed to talk louder as the live music was playing) however the menu was very overpriced! $20 for a...More

Lava Lava is the go to spot for sunset in Waikoloa....but this is no tourist trap, great drinks, food, and fantastic service. Happy hour pricing is really good, but it’s over by 5pm. Always busy at sunset, so make sure you call ahead for seating...More

The whole family enjoyed our meal here. Two of us had this Chicken pineapple stir fry which was one of the best meals we had on the island. Would definitely recommend eating here.

Great place to go if you want to dine on the beach. Our server Don Don was attentive and made sure we had everything we needed during our meal. The food is a bit on the pricey side but the views definitely compensate for it.
