We love the CanoeHouse for special events and for sharing with friends. It is situated perfectly for beach view sunsets. The live music is always quality listening. Wait staff are personable and knowledgeable. And the food, a feast for the eyes and the palate.

Good view of sunset from the terrace. Food wasn't bad, but I thought prices were high hence the 3/5. Probably would be a 4/5 if prices were $5-10 lower per entree. Good wine list and service.

Booked the Captain's table for our visit which is a set chef's menu with optional wine pairing. Thought this was a bargain for the quality of the food and the friendly staff. Turns out the chefs had all worked with some of the top chefs in San Diego so there was a good discussion hearing about their connections. Nancy was... More

Went here with a group of friends after a day at the beach (A-bay). What a beautiful setting outdoors, with the sun setting over the Pacific as we dined and drank. Split the grilled shrimp for an appetizer, had the pork ribs and wife had the ahi - all excellent!

I really liked this place with its elegant outdoor seating. The food was on an off night, but I was able to eat it, and I only say this because the coconut sauce on the Mahi Mahi was a bit runny. Not really complaining about any of the food, it was delicious. So, If you are in the Mauna Lani... More

Great location, good food and service and a few anomolies on the wine list make for great dinning. Ask about the daily specials.

Have made this our go back place every time we are on Big Island. Book your table in advance so you are there for sunset. Your pictures will be your favorite for years to come. The location, food, drinks, service all perfection. Just cannot say enough about this restaurant. If you like coffee order the Peaberry coffee at the end... More
