We had lunch here the first day. Good food and cocktails and good service. We had breafast the second day and opted for the buffet. For $26 each I would have like it to be better. I would order off the menu next time.

Our first night my husband had local beer and he liked it. I had the daily drink special because the lady at the next table said it was good. Was good, but after a while it started tasting a little funny. Maybe you have to drink it within 10 minutes.. .? We shared the Seafood Combo that came with rice.... More

As this is the only in house restaurant open some nights suggestion would be to offer a few meal of the week or Chef Special. Evening menu uninspired, service fine but overall dining experience not in keeping with a Sheraton Resort standard in my opinion.

The Rum Fire restaurant was closed, so we moved to Plan B and walked to the beach and found this restaurant...also connected to the Sheraton at Poipu. The ocean was right there, and the food offerings were varied, and, our experience, well-prepared. The service was great. We were a larger group, and they organized tables to take care of us....

Two of us were guests at the Sheraton. This restaurant was incredibly convenient for us on our first night at the resort. The other on-site restaurant, RumFire, was closed, so we chose Lava's. It has a beautiful location, overlooking the beach and with a full view of the Sheraton's luau show. The menu was limited and expensive for what we... More

We enjoyed our burgers and sliders. Service was excellent and the view was spectacular. The food you may forget, but the view you'll remember always. Go try them out.

They have a great breakfast buffet and healthy lunches! Good for kids too. They also provide the pool food at the Sheraton.

We had breakfast at Lava's most mornings of our stay at the Sheraton. The location right on the beach afforded beautiful ocean views and the open air is one thing I love about Hawaii. The food was pretty good and included at least 3 fresh fruits on the buffet each day, hot oatmeal, waffles, eggs, rice, breakfast meats and a... More
