We were staying at the Mauna Kea resort and celebrated our anniversary at the Manta. We had an Oceanside table and the setting was perfect. Unfortunately, the service was amateurish and hesitant. The food was OK, but expensive. We have stayed at the Mauna Kea often for more than 30 years, so I hope the Manta can improve. We love... More

I really wanted to like this place. It is expensive, but we decided to splurge to celebrate my birthday. I don't mind paying for good food, and at these prices I was expecting really good. I was sorely disappointed. I got the grilled ono, which was very tender and fresh, but lacked flavor. The rice it came with was very... More

We recently dined at the very special and beautifully scenic Manta Restaurant outdoor terrace. We shared a delicious farm-to-table salad with wonderful fresh greens and the catch of the day fish, which was grilled Ono. The meal was fabulous and the service very attentive. They take very good care of their guests and therefore, it was a wonderful dining experience.... 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
