Wonderful dinner and chatting with Paul, the owner, who had moved from Colorado to here several years ago. Great story and changing this from a hole in the wall to a first class dining establishment. Great wine, food is awesome...don't leave the big island without stopping here!!

You can't go wrong here if you like fish. Really sophisticated flavors, beautifully plated -- in a colorful place with paper tablecloths and crayons. I don't know anyone who wouldn't love this restaurant. Had a fish special (Ono) with an amazing combination of tastes lime, wasabi and possibly coconut creamy sauces entwined with a lovely moist delicate piece of fish... More

Don't bother looking for Jackie Rey's in those airport magazines--this place doesn't need the ads (we heard about it from a local cousin). Creative food with a local flavor--from the poke tower (kind of a raw fish cocktail with avocado) to good old ribs & fries. All is beautifully presented by enthusiastic waitstaff who know the menu and drink list... More

Had a great lunch here. Pulled PORK sandwich was great. Drinks a bit watered down. No a/c on a very muggy day! Made things unpleasant.

My husband and I went here on our honeymoon for a nice meal out and, even though he really enjoyed his meal, I was really disappointed with mine, especially for the price. I started out with a martini that was supposed to be vodka with a splash of olive juice. It was literally like drinking warm olive juice and nothing... More

On our last night on the Big Island, we dined at Jackie Rey's with two other couples. We were seated promptly, received excellent service, and felt no pressure to turn over the table. The catch of the day was ono (wahoo) and our server recommended having it prepared Mochiko Crusted with Molokai sweet potato, lime ginger and mild wasabi sauce;... More

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
