Enjoyed dinner here twice during our stay. Both times the food was exceptional. A little off the main drag but it is worth it. Gets you away from the tourist vibe of Ali'I Drive. Seafood is excellent and their pork chop is really good as well. Don't pass up the macadamia nut bar desert. It was delicious.

Went there with high expectations according to ratings from Tripadvisor and local web sites. It's hard to find the place because it's at the intersection of three road. It's so easy to miss it. The building looks like an auto shop, not attracting. Even after 9PM, it's still very crowded and noisy. It's an casual dining place. Service was very... More

Had the Ono (see pic) and it was fabulous. Served over sweet peppers and mashed purple sweet potatoes, and garnished with an amazing, wasabi-spiked sauce. Yumm-mmmeee. The décor was lovely - clean and quite bright, even at night - and the windows were huge and wiiiide open. Great service, tasty food, and enjoyable atmosphere. Had I been in Kona longer,... More

Don't order the Tofu soba noodle veggie dish; I could have made this at home with better results. It was mediocre in taste and poorly presented. The egg roll dish was gorgeous and great. Two chefs?

First let me just say that the service here was unreal. Our waitress was Heidi. She was one of the friendliest people I have met. So happy and genuine. Second, the food was over the top delicious. The presentation was beautiful. I felt like I was on Master Chef and my food was prepared by the judges themselves. I can't... More

We tried Jackie Rey's as it was highly recommended. We got there at 4:30 so between lunch and dinner there is a limited menu. We had pork spring rolls and fish and chips. Very good. Open air, but not really a view. Nice atmosphere and great service.

We stopped here for lunch and both had different salads topped with grilled tuna. There were ok, nothing special. My husbands salad with beets had an overly sweet dressing that just didn't go well with that salad in my opinion. Local passion fruit ice cream for a dessert was a disappointment as you can barely detect a passion fruit flavor... More

Went here for dinner after reading in Big island revealed that it was frequented by the locals and they had good things to say. The service was excellent starting with the hostess who's name we didn't get and then Sage who is adorable! The food was good,however expensive and I honestly don't think there was a local in the house,not... More

Excellent experience eating here. Our server Sage was very professional and helpful with our ordering. Got some nice wine and started with the Kalue Pork Spring Rolls. Also shared and loved, loved, loved the Crispy Pork Ribs. I had the daily fresh catch which was Mahi and had it Fire Grilled Straight up style - excellent. My friend also had... More

Four of us tried this restaurant based on Trip Advisor reviews . Best decision! I ordered the tortilla crusted fish of the day and it was fabulous. Our waiter, Olaf, was funny and very efficient. I don't like sweet potatoes but the purple potatoes were very good. We loved this restaurant so much that we went back on our last... More
