Tropical paradise restaurant!

One of the best restaurants in the area! We were driving through looking for the lava damage, and spotted Kaleos - looking just like a tropical restaurant should! From the excellent ice tea, to the ambience, to the attentive servers, to the exquisite menu our most memorable stop in Hawaii!

Town itself is not the best, but the lunch place was recommended to us and we were not disappointed. Nice mix of locals and tourists. Food was simply very tasty for the both of us and and good prices. Friebdly staff that allowed you to take your time to have a nice lunch.

A nice relaxed atmosphere with delicious food. Server was nice and explained everything. One thing stood out, the friendliness and politeness of the parking attendant! He was a nice young man and was very helpful in answering some questions we had about Pahoa town. I didn't get his name but I would like to thank him here. Aloha and Mahalo... More

Friendly staff. The dinner options were not as good as hoped. Not many choices in Pahoa, so this might be the best place in town.

When you first arrive, there was a young man who showed us where to park in the gravel parking lot. I thought that it was nice. We saw our friends who were already seated so we made our way to the table. No greeting or smile from the hostess at all. There was only one waiter for the entire restaurant... More

We ate here twice during out stay. The staff are excellent and it has a really good atmosphere. There is nothing wrong with the food - best with nice fresh fish - but, like a lot of American food, it can go wrong when they try to be a bit fancy or lay on the batter too thickly. On the... More

Kaleo's Bar and Grill in Pahoa is a class act, from the parking lot attendant, to the serenade of live Hawaiian music, tasteful decor, attentive waitstaff, and absolutely fantastic food! Eat here for a relaxing, memorable evening. Reservations recommended.
