this is a good restaurant on the beach. Great views with having a drink. The wings were good and sandwiches big.

It was a bit windy when we were there, so tried to find a more sheltered place to sit. Food and service were good but not exceptional. $15 price range for lunch menu, so a bit higher than I'd usually want to pay. I had...More

Enjoyed a nice sunset dinner with my husband. Coconut shrimp was delicious! Husband had the chef's special - Mahi-Mahi and it was "shut up" good. We saw a whale tail slapping in the distance. Make a reservation as this place was super busy!

Location is ideal literally on the beach. Warm breezes of the pacific in the evening. Food is unimaginative but not too expensive considering the location and the competition. More of a burgers and fries place than a haute cuisine restaurant. TGIF transported to the tropics

Had a delightful dinner at Lava Lava. Beautiful sunset. Food was great and plentiful. Service could not have been better. Suggest reservations and if you are interested in the sunset, ask for the lower deck. A very busy place, so plan accordingly.

Reminds me of Thailand, the casual atmosphere of a place to have drinks and food while literally sitting on the beach. Really beautiful at sunset because you can see the sun going down. Good happy hour and really nice folks both serving and as patrons.

We have stayed in the area many times but had never eaten here. One day we went for a lunch and it was good. I had the fish and chips and the breading was not too heavy but the fish was a little tough. My...More

The location simply can't be beat. Right on the beach, hidden behind driftwood trees. It really is something to see. The staff was great as well. Unfortunately, the food was not very good. Even with marginal food, the experience of eating on the beach, with...More

They probably do - or you can ask them. Tommy Bahama in mauna lani definately has a gluten free menu & the other great option is 'under the bodia tree' in mauna lani resort area too.
