Fabulous food and ambiance.

I decided to have a second dinner here before posting. The food is very delicious. My first time my food was not hot and this would have brought it to a 4 stars rating but the 2nd time it was brought hot like I like it. Both times my order was custom made. They have great friendly staff and... read more

This above average eatery is not popular for its setting, a few streets above Alii, but the locals flock here for the friendly service and good food. With no reservations, we only waited at the bar for a few minutes before we were shown to a lovely table near the open window. Again, there is no view to speak of,... More

We had a family dinner here while in Kona. Food was excellent! Had mahi mahi as the fresh catch and 3 of us at the table had it. It was delicious! I would totally recommend this place as a fun, casual dining experience with excellent food!

Jackie Rey's is simply outstanding dining! Service is spectacular! And the food is repeatably perfectly executed, down to the checker board grill marks on their outstanding, monsterous, juicy pork chops! It is a little pricey, so for us it is more of a "special" place, but if your looking for an excellent dining experience, you'll find it at Jackie Rey's!

My husband and I stopped here for dinner on our last night on the Big Island. We were expecting something a little more casual, so we were pretty surprised when we walked through the door. But the food was really good; I had some seafood pasta and my husband had the surf and turf. He normally isn't a fan of... More

Consistently excellent service, food, and presentation. A dining experience begins with a warm welcome, (especially as a 10 year customer), appreciation for giving your business, attentive service and the feast starts with your eyes as the plates are presented - enjoyed with every bite thereafter! Highly recommended - moderate pricing, casually elegant, great experience.

I had the fresh mahi mahi with purple yams, veggies, and a fabulous sauce combination -- wasabi, teriyaki, and some sort of mild wine sauce (I think). It was the best dish I've ever had -- so subtle, yet flavours bursting in my mouth. Loved it. My husband had the scallops, and he was extremely happy with those, too. The... More

From the delicious May tai to the incredibly tasty calamari to the amazing Ono fish to the cheesecake- every single thing spot on. Great service, nice ambiance too. We found it a bit pricey especially with the Canadian dollar being so low so we split the entrée and a salad. Both of us left very full. The only downside is... More

We had a reservation for a group of 11 people last Friday night at this restaurant. My son and I were visiting my brother in Kona, and had gone out on a boat trip earlier in the week with this group of people who all live in Kona. Dinner at Jackie Rey's was a sort of "reunion" with these friends... More
