The staff was very welcoming and friendly. The restaurant was recommended by a chef we befriended. We ordered the pork wontons, fish curry stew to share, and a salad described as greens with blue cheese, nuts etc. The wontons were good. The salad arrived; a mound of, I assume, bagged spring mix. The aforementioned had not been culled through or... More

There are not too many places in cute little Pahoa village and most are cuisine-specific so Kaleo's is a perfect for those who want a varied menu. Many wonderful choices. I had Asian stir fry and it was delish, super fresh veggies. My girlfriend had the steak salad and she is still raving about it.

We were looking for local food and were told we could get some really good Kalua Pork there. The restaurant located in the small town of Pahoa has free valet parking. You can make reservations but we just stopped by and got a table right away. The service is very good and the food even better. We ate Kalua Pork,... More

Best place to eat in Pahoa and most of Hilo. The ribs were to die for and the portions were substantial.

I love kaleos! The food is really good, I put a 4 out of 5 on value bc it is the most expensive restaurant in town but I think the prices are comparable to any other restaurant of its type. You can dress casual or evening casual and still feel comfortable here. The live music on weekends is also really... More

I hope Pele will be good to Pahoa's little business district. We had a delicious mahi mahi dinner at Keleo's in February. Good cocktails, too. Believe it or not, it was a bit chilly, and we had to sit out on the patio. :( Although the restaurant was almost empty, we were told that all the tables inside were reserved;... More

Kaleo's is the high end restaurant and bar in Pahoa. Great service, good food, and lively atmosphere. I dined on Thu eve. Live music in dining room and full house. Attentive staff: parking attendant, hostess and server all wonderful. Good food -- no complaint, but don't expect a unique or particularly local cuisine. Entrees $22+.

We stopped in here while checking out the east side of the island. It’s located right on the main street through downtown. We had the Fresh Fish Island Sandwich and the Coconut Shrimp with Sweet Thai Chili Sauce. The fish was very good, the shrimp and Thai sauce was amazing. The place was very busy and we ended up eating... More

Kaleo's in Pahoa is a real find. Service is friendly and attentive. The atmosphere in this location is very local and comfortable - like being at a friend's house. Food is great - be sure to try the kalua pig. We were amazed at the generous serving sizes especially since prices are very reasonable. There's even live music on the... More

We went for dinner twice we enjoyed the first meal so much. The fresh fish was just wonderful and the desserts were well worth waiting for. The service was very good, we did have 2 servers but that was a little confusing for each as they were not always sure if we had gotten a drink or dessert or whatever.... More
