We stopped for breakfast on our way to the beach. My husband ordered the pancake platter and I had the coconut macadamia French toast. The pancake platter was good. The French toast was absolutely fantastic. Something you’ll never find on a menu in the mainland....More

Went there with family and everyone was happy with the food, even though it is quite expensive. My husband had the ribs, which were amazing. The rest of the table had specials which everyone was pleased with.

We dined at this restaurant twice within 8 days staying in the area. There is no doubt in my mind that this is the best moderate cost establishment in the area. Remember that restaurant prices are more expensive, in general, in Hawaii. I ate fish...More

Great location directly opposite the harbour makes a great spot for a 'meal with a view'. Reasonably priced meals and drinks. This was recommended to us by some locals. Give it a go!

Located along the waterfront. The crusted Mahi Mahi was excellent (but maybe not worth $32). My husband ordered the more moderately priced Kona Brew Fish & Chips and he said they were a little greasy.

Good views, even from the inner tables. Varied menu. Good quality. Friendly and attentive service. Make a reservation if you want a front row table. Accessible. Nice atmosphere. Not fine dining but a very nice place. Prices typical of this area.

This restaurant has been a long time staple in Kailua town, and offers breakfast, lunch and dinner. You can't beat the view, and the food is always consistent with excellent Mojitos and Mai Tai's. Pricing is reasonable, and service is friendly and fast.

Yes. There is a road behind all the restaurant and shops. You can find parking in all the lots that feed the shopping. If one is full just go down the street a little. The downtown Kona area is very compact, so walking... More
