I have a problem paying $80.00 for breakfast for two ( @ 30 plus tip). They have you trapped... Unless you leave the resort you won't find another restaurant on the resort that serves breakfast. You can grab a pastry at the coffee bar.

Every morning we started our day here and loved it. Great buffet, made to order eggs or omletts, fresh island fruit and juices, muffins are too die for. Great staff too. David our waiter gave us tips and ideas every day. The view can't be beat either.

We ate breakfast here for 5 days...it really the only place if staying at Hilton Waikoloa. It is a buffet, they have everything here, Eggs, "breakfast meats", pancakes, really good biscuts and gravy with fresh fruits and many different types of breads. There is also a chef making omelets which looked very good but I did not partake. They had... More

The ambience beside the lagoon with cascading waterfalls was very romantic. The noise from the restaurant detracted from the romantic environment. I do you have medical dietary needs. My waitress was very helpful trying to make sure those needs were met. When the restaurant became busy, we felt a little rushed, but that would be true in any busy restaurant.... More

Great selection of food from the buffets, view excellent from lagoon side tables. Hot tea was a battle - water was always brought over lukewarm. All other drinks - juices, coffee etc - were excellent. A little on the pricey side though at $30+ per person.

Don't eat here if you have medical dietary problems. I existed on one or two poached eggs for breakfast, what we brought from Melb for lunch (normally a small mini choc bar), couldn't have cup of tea as milk powder had fructose in it), couldn't drink soft drink or have southern comfort or coke, couldn't eat much at all really....

Yep, it's pricey at ~$30 per person, but get ready for anything you can think of for breakfast and all you can eat of it, so I felt it was well worth it. Excellent service from our server & staff, and the cooks made our omelet's just as ordered, quickly and efficiently. Absolutely HUGE selection of food for breakfast, so... More

$75 for 2 adults and kid. This is a basic hotel breakfast buffet with a couple of local touches like coconut or mango/pineapple muffins. None of the exciting tropic fruit you might imagine (only pinnacle). Everything else is basic.

The prices are a bit spendy for breakfast, but the servers go over and above offering helpful advice, and even offering your beverage in to-go containers.
