By far the best restaurant we have ever been fortunate enough to dine at. From the moment you enter and are greeted with Aloha graciousness to the dining, drink and entertainment. It's all wonderful. Appetizers; seared Ahi and coconut shrimp with special sauce to the entrees; incredible fall of the bone ribs, Mahi and specialty fish and finally the dessert... More

From the road the town of Pahoa looks a bit faded, a bit scruffy, with eccentric characters all over. But, on entering Kaleo's you are in heaven. The food is great (both Hawaiian favorites as well as mainland), the service is great, and you'll be happy. Pray to Madame Pele that the lava passes by and leaves it alone!

Kaleo's looks pretty average when you drive by it on the street. But looks can be deceiving. The food was terrific, the service was attentive and the atmosphere was fun. A great place to eat in Pahoa!

The food and service is amazing. I recommend reservations. This place may seem small but there is plenty of room. You may want to specify when making reservations whether you wish to sit inside or out.

We stopped in here on our way back to our place in Volcano. We were directed to a parking spot which was great. We walked in and noted it was busy but not crowded. We didn't want to sit inside so chose the outside "patio". Someone came right away to fill our water glasses and were told that Lani, our... More

I stayed for a week in the local Pahoa area while visiting family. Coming from southern California where the quality and flare of local restaurants are in abundance, we were surprised to find the magic of Kaleo’s in Pahoa.We couldn’t help returning throughout our visit and was surprised by the Aloha each visit. While I didn’t get to try everything... More

We had coconut shrimp, Cobb salad and Mahi wrap. Couple of Kona Big Wave beers to compliment a great meal. All very reasonably priced with good service !

Kaleo's made me extremely happy. I do not usually eat fish, but I went with the ono, and it was superb, as was the beer. The mix of people, from families to cyclists to beach folks, was amusing, and the service excellent. It was clean and relaxing and enjoyable. I too would eat here frequently if I lived in the...
