We had a lovely time. The weather was nice so we had lunch on the balcony. I had a Da Kine Cheesburger. Loaded with mushrooms, avocado, and grilled onions. It was a gooey greasy pleasure. Wife had scallops which were excellent as well. The wait staff we dealt with were very nice, and attentive. Definitely would go back.

We stopped at Kaleo's several times during our stay. Ther service was impressive compared to many places we've gone, let alone for a small town like Pahoa! They even had a young gentleman directing parking in the parking lot during the evening. All of their food was delicious and well prepared. Local grass fed beef (try the flank steak salad... More

We ate here on our first night on the Island definitely the best meal we had on the Island we had a party of four and everyone enjoyed their food. The waitress was very friendly and helpful on what to do and where to go on the island. Great place!!

We had a great lunch in this quaint casual restaurant in the funky village of Pahoa while exploring the southern part of the island. Good fish, vegetables, salad and burgers. Service was great. Nice ambiance - clean and nicely decorated.

Our GPS said there was an L&L Hawaiian BBQ near here but we never found it so we tried Kaleo's. Great steak, Tempura Maui, and Tomato Basil Pasta with a side of shrimp. Everything was so good, we are only here for 4 days but we will go back for more.

We were part of a group of eight on a busy night when entertainment was offered. The food was very good however we were a bit put off by the loudness of the music as we couldn't talk to one another.

You may think that the title of my review may be overzealous, however, not only was it the best meal I had on the island, but also the best experience as well, and I don't hand out excellent ratings as you can tell from my dozens of restaurant reviews. I took the advice of Trip Advisor on this one, and... More

Stopped and got takeout...kalua pig and cabbage (an island favorite) and steak tips in sherry sauce. Both very good. Nice restaurant and busy on weekends for sure and most other nights. Heard breakfast and lunch are very good but haven't had the pleasure.

What more could you want? The drinks were also delicious! We stumbled upon this place when we were driving through and came back for our last night of our honeymoon. I had the coconut crusted Ono and it was incredible!
