We had 2 breakfasts and 1 dinner and our food was fabulous. Try the mango cheesecake as it is to die for.

I was on a Gray Line Bus Tour with a friend and and they stopped at this restaurant for lunch. We had been given menu choices ranging from sandwiches to plate lunches at various prices. The driver phoned in the orders for the 25 people on the tour an hour before our arrival so that the food would be ready... More

After traveling all day, it was nice to step into Lava Rock Cafe for some good food. The place seemed busy, usually a good sign of good local food. Service was quick and our burgers were delicious. The menu of desserts looked so tempting that we ordered two to go and put them in the refrigerator in our room for... More

We stopped in on a Saturday night and were seated promptly, and enjoyed the guitarist and his voice - a nice surprise. The food itself is your average fare. Our burgers were adequate (I added feta and mushrooms), the fries and mac-potato salad were good, and we got a kick out of the Portugese Bean Soup which had four beans... More

Our family of four had a nice time dining at this restaurant. The food was not particularly exciting but it was well-prepared. The kids enjoyed their burgers, and we enjoyed our salads. We got lucky with being seated, though. We showed up at 6:30 and got a table within five minutes. By the time we left at 7:30, the line... More

We had two dinners here and both were just great. We even had live music on both nights. They feature a lot of local grown produce, meats and fish. Between the two of us, we had a variety of dishes. The cheeseburger, Ahi fish, Kalbi ribs, Kailua pork, portuguese bean & kale soup and garden salad were all really good.... More

Just standard food without much else and it wasn't that good. There was no service. We waited for a bill and finally had to go up and ask so we could get out of the place. We would not return.
