Change the Scenery for a Second

Visiting such a lush and beautiful island as Hawaii can leave one overwhelmed! Changing the scenery can help one refocus and that is exactly why we ditched the plantation Hawaii food scene and headed for Le Magic Pan, which serves a wonderful array of savory and sweet crepes.

After ordering a crepe and sundae, i wondered why it took so long. They were beautiful, that's why. Tasty and price was good too.

Our group of 6 visited at dinner, on Apr. 17, 2015. We had made a reservation, and were seated right away. Good food, good service. B U T 2 of us found additional charges on our credit card statements when they arrived. Charges were several dollars HIGHER than the receipt given at time of service. Complaint was made, + the...

Stopped in for dinner. They were out of French Onion soup so my husband ordered Seafood Chowder. He said the soup had very little seafood and a lot of corn. It was very rich and creamy but tasted like a corn chowder. It was good, just not what he expected. I ordered the Beef Stroganoff crepe with garbanzo bean flour... More

Great price for the selection, crepes with a variety of choices! A la carte menu, very clean and great customer service, you can watch the chef cooking as well! Quaint and sufficient

This is a charming bistro in downtown Hilo that serves mostly crepes. The food is good but we found the service at lunch to be pretty slow. So I recommend going here but don't be in a hurry.

Man/woman does not live by plate lunch alone. It is a pleasure to have this eaterie in town. The salads and crepes are as fresh as could be and DELICIOUS! I have been for lunch with friends, or a romantic dinner for two and this place scores for both. The service is slow due to the kitchen constraints, but worth... More

I found the restaurant to be a little souless and the service was slow and decidely average. Worse though was that as a coeliac it is potentially dangerous. On arrival we were informed that they had no salad or spinach. After looking at the menu and substitution options we decided to stay anyway as they advertised two types of gluten... More

Were seated right in front of the live musician's and the music was so loud we couldn't talk.The restaurant apparently has no air conditioning and the fans provided little... More

This is a French crepe restaurant tucked into a wing of what was once a large municipal building on a side street in Hilo. It is an artsy, small operation - when I was there, I only saw the chef and one server. And as other patrons came in, they seemed to know them all by name! The crepes were... More
