My husband and I ate here and were pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere is casual but the food is priced and presented more upscale (still affordable compared to many other places in Hawaii). We also had the best service that we could have asked for. Everyone worked as a team here and it made our experience very smooth and memorable. For... More

Seems like the key to a succesful restaurant is not only great food, but delivering that great product on a consistant basis. Jackie Reys does just that. We have never been disappointed and we dine here a lot. You will feel like family by the warm greeting you will receive.

After reviews from fellow "Trippers", and also from other sources, my bf and I decided we would go here as one of our very few dining out dates we planned on (everything is expensive in HI, as you all may know). It was also literally up the road from the condo were we renting. *sigh... I don't understand everyone's great... More

For the second time, we made a light dinner by sharing three small plates: the mixed salad with miso dressing, tuna tartare and the pork spring roll. All three were outstanding, and with a bottle of the house pinot grigio made a superb light dinner. Highly recommended.

A local resident told my wife on the flight from Honolulu to the Big Island that we mustn't miss Jackie Rey's during our trip and boy was she right. Jackie's food, while not the most expensive we had, was some of the best we ate on the Big Island. We both had Mochiko Crusted Ono which was fabulous. Our server... More

Huge and varied menu. From fajitas to chef salad to fresh Ono. Good kids menu. Close to Kona snorkeling. Good service and great value.

The room and service stood out. The bread was great. I had the seared tuna very rare and it was the best I ever had.

We have been to the Big Island in the past, but we've never experienced food that was even close to this in terms of its quality, flavor, color, creativity, and presentation. Admittedly, the prior reviews are extremely strong, but somehow we did not believe it until we actually ate the food here. Of note, we almost left when we read... More

We absolutely loved this restaurant. We weren't expecting much when we first arrived, as the infrastructure of the restaurant seemed utilitarian at best, but we decided to eat there despite this fact. We were so glad we did! Our waiter was knowledgable and gregarious, and gave insightful comments about the relative merits of each dish. They change their menu frequently... More

Cat at the Holualoa Inn recommended Jackie Rey's for our last lunch on the Big Island - it was a great recommendation! My niece and I shared the pork kalua spring rolls - they were fantastic! We also shared a soba noodle dish and we agreed it was one of the best dishes we'd enjoyed during our vacation. The fresh... More
