Description: Kilauea Lodge and Restaurant, located in the quiet village of Volcano...
Kilauea Lodge and Restaurant, located in the quiet village of Volcano, sits on 5 acres of gardens and gazebos and native forest. This hotel restaurant features a large fireplace, local art, koa tables, and is open nightly. Chef/owner Albert Jeyte blends flavors from his European background with farm, ranch and seafood products from Hawaii, the surrounding Pacific and elsewhere. Volcano Village is at 3700 feet elevation and evenings are often cool and misty. The historic fireplace welcomes guests with it's cheery fire. Home made soups and breads tease the appetite. Albert specializes in unusual game...venison, antelope, rabbit, duck. The biggest sellers are local fish dishes; ahi, ono, mahimahi and the exotic Tristan lobster. A large wine list complements the eclectic menu.

Nicer than average, traditional cuisine

This restaurant has a warm, welcoming, and casual feeling, and it was fun to look at the big fireplace with its international references. Service was good, and we enjoyed the food, although it seemed a little less impressive than the prices would have warranted - but maybe that's just Hawaii. We... read more

We ate in the bar lounge to avoid having to make reservations in the main restaurant. We actually put our name on the wait list (told it would be about 30 minutes) and left the property to freshen up at our off-site accommodations. We were seated promptly upon our return. The view of Kilauea was spectacular but even had it... More

Prices are high, service is good, some food choices are okay- e.g. fresh fish, while lamb dish is outstanding. Significant other is still raving about the sauce used on the lamb.

This is a good restaurant in a very cozy lodge. The family had antelope burgers and I the chicken curry. All good and affordable at about $12-$15 per entree. Nice gift shop too. Recommend!

The prices were high and the food quality was low. We have eaten here many times before and were never disappointed until this time.

Former YMCA lodge has the air of an European Hunting Lodge. Food is very good, extensive wine list and and the service is first rate. Make a reservation due to popularity. Check catch of the day which will be at market price, I had lobster tails.

Wonderful service! The lodge is quite charming and a very special place. You will need a reservation. The menu is limited but everything is done well. Unfortunately, not many options for vegetarians here. However, they have a nice selection of wines, beer and desserts! It is definitely a treat to come here and a must if you are in Volcano... More

We truly enjoyed having dinner at Kilauea Lodge. The Lilikoi margarita was delicious! The restaurant is cozy and inviting and the service was top notch. We even bought tshirts at the gift shop. Would highly recommend this restaurant!

Great food surrounded by great Hawaiian art. The fire place adds a gentle glow to the surroundings. What better way to spend some of a Hawaiian vacation?
