Reasonably priced and delicious

We visited on valentines night and the place was hopping and that was at 5:30 pm. The fish courses were all delicious, the Mediterranean plate and the passion fruit cheesecake a must. The staff was excellent and very friendly. It felt like THE place to go in this corner of the big island.

Coconut calamari, Kalua pork and great salads. Good cocktails, quick and attentive service, and nice outside patio for dining along the main street in Pahoa. Super good for lunch!

No waiting when we went and was seated near the solo guitar singer, who played very well. The drink selection is large and has great service. The choices of appetizers, salads, main course and desserts are great. We had the fresh Onofish and Kaibi Beef Ribs which were excellent

Our first visit here in 2014 was excellent. This late March our (2 of us) early arrival just before 5pm was met with a not very welcoming attitude on the part of one server who (even though the place was totally empty) she insisted we sit at a small poorly located table. Our insistence at sitting at a larger table... More

Went to Kaleo's for dinner and had a yummy chicken with a lemon sauce. All 4 of us ordered something different and we were very happy with our choices. Food presentation was great. Menu had enough good choices from which to select something. Service was attentive but not obstructive. Musical entertainment was OK. One of the musicians was good, the... More

Decent food when there's not many options. However I would probably only rate it 3, if comparing to a greater number of restaurants. It was good to have the car park out front as earlier when we were going to park on the street we saw broken glass and man in poor condition wandering aimlessly into properties nearby.

An imaginative menu in a casual atmosphere. The servers do a very good job. Sometimes there is live music. The banana and pastry dessert is to die for. The restaurant is somewhat expensive compared to mainland prices but everything on HI is expensive. I would definitely eat here again.

A quick visit to Pahoa with my kids in tow - sans husband. Desperately in need of a more "adult oriented" menu - we happened upon Kaleo's. And SO GLAD that we did!!! It was a dark and stormy night... we ran to the door through a downpour, with kids as previously mentioned and perhaps not dressed as formally as... More

As I was told to try Kaleos in Pahoa, we did. Wow. A culinary experience. Try the fish. Awesome. Loved it and then we returned to Kahonua Hale. The nicest place to stay in Vacation land.

The night we visited it was pouring. We were met at our car by a teen carrying an umbrella to escort us to the restaurant foyer. . Make your reservation early and get name of person taking your reservation. Food, drinks and service was good.
