Amazing sun set views, and a good meal

This is a rare place which offers one of the best sunset views in the world AND it has really fine dinning ( normally, you find EITHER OR, but not BOTH ). Best is to make a reservation for 45' before sunset; therefore you can experience both unique moments before, during and after sunset. The... read more

First, the view is unbeatable. I have no problem paying resort prices. It is part of the drill. The food quality was pretty good. What was really disappointing were the cocktails: A 12 buck vodka roks, fine. But give me a decent drink ok? I called the server's attention to it, and she then brought me a "double" charging me...

We loved the Manta terrace restaurant at the Mauna Kea Beach hotel. Beautiful ocean view over a fragrant garden. The food was To Die For. We had a very creative lobster salad appetizer, veal chop and opa entrees in an enchanting atmosphere. In the evenings, below the terrace, they shine a light on the water which attracts fish and Manta... More

We had a late dinner here our first night at the hotel. The food was good and the lilikoi soufflé that we split as a dessert was delicious. After dinner we walked down the path to watch the rays feeding. They also have a nice fire pit that you can hang at after or while waiting for your table

Manta restaurant, located in the famous,MaunaKea,Beach hotel, has incredible food, service and view. The lobster,salad with local microgreens was delicious, as,was the local catch ('ono, ahower and mahi). Be sure to order the souffle. ..chocolate or lilikoi. Scrumptious! !

What a setting! Spectacular sunset views with fine food. Our server was excellent and friendly. I chose the Sweet potato soup for my first course which was delicious and different. Since I had had fish for every lunch and dinner previously, I decided to change it up and go with the beef tenderloin with mashed potatoes and fresh asparagus. Don't... More

First of all this restaurant does have amazing views of the ocean and the sunset here is amazing. So amazing that we were overlooked by the servers for 15 to 20 minutes after being seated at a very nice outdoor table. Luckily someone noticed the lack of attention and made our absent server aware! We have to give them credit... More

We returned recently to eat at Manta. We did not have a reservation but were warmly welcomed and seated at a lovely terrace table.

First time eating here, first time visitors to Hawaii.
