My family of 4 ate here for dinner and had fantastic food! 3 out of the 4 of us had the special of the day and the 4th had chicken tacos. Our service was good and we did not wait long for our seats or food. Well worth the visit!

You will get a fabulous meal. Period. On this trip we shared 2 appetizers with friends: the pork spring rolls and the fried calamari. I won't go into detail about the preparation. Please see my pictures or check out the menu. Just know they were as good as they get. Each of us had the fresh fish prepared a different... More

This is not on the beach or the main tourist drag in Kona. But it's two minutes from there and well worth it. Nice decor, excellent service and perfectly prepared seafood, best we had on the islands so far. I had the special, blackened Ono in a papaya beurre blanc, exquisite - trust the chef and go for what he's... More

We loved our experience at this restaurant. We took 4 children ages 9mo-5yrs old. The environment was laid back, but the food was upscale & unique. All the dishes we tried were plated beautifully and tasted delicious. We had a party of 13 & called ahead. They were ready for us upon arrival 15 minutes later. This restaurant is a... More

This was our favorite meal we had during a recent stay on the Big Island. It's a little bit away from the main hustle and bustle of Kona, though you can still see the ocean in the distance. The restaurant is painted in bright colors, and the windows are open letting all the fresh air in. The feeling is relaxed... More

Jackie Rey's is a a colorful, open air restaurant located some distance from the hustle and bustle of Alii Drive. The initial greeting was enthusiastic, with that same energy level and friendliness continuing throughout the meal........a very nice atmosphere. The menu was creative, and the food is tastefully presented. While I of course can't speak to all of the menu... More

Fresh food, fish cooked perfectly, delish poke. Drinks are sugar bombs, salad dressing is sugar bomb, sauce on main entrees is sugar bomb. At least you won't need to pay more money for dessert. No air con and really muggy hot.

After discovering this restaurant online, my husband and I tried it for lunch yesterday. The staff was friendly and helpful and the food delicious. We both had fish, which was Ono--our favorite. The fish was obviously fresh and the flavors delightful. The only negative would be that the humidity is unusually high right now and the open windows and ceiling... More
