Spectacular view!

Be sure to make a reservation here. A must when visiting Kona if you are looking for a nice dinner out. A bit on the spendy side, but you can have apps and salad for a reasonable price. Mai Tai's here are good. Fish is fresh. Wait staff is friendly and helpful. Have been here many times and have... read more

First visit to Huggo's and it was perfect. We made a 6:00 pm reservation being it was February and we were hoping to see the sunset. The host check in was efficient and attentive, not distracted in any way and fully capable. First impressions are everything. Then we were seated, at a table for two right on the water. We... More

Had dinner here twice during February 2015. Restaurant is located right on the water front with an excellent view of the Kailua bay. Excellent place to view a Hawaiian sunset. Food is excellent with reasonable proportions and good presentations. Wait staff does a good job. Took our daughter, her husband and 3 kids here for their last night in Hawaii,... More

We have had our anniversary dinner here two years in a road. We love the view, very romantic, very nicely casual. The Marinated flank steak is really good. The macadamian pie is the best ever. Portion sizes are fine. Resturant is ready for an update. Hope the management moves on this.

Made a reservation for my husband and I to have a romantic dinner for just the two of us during a trip, and we enjoyed everything about the meal. Great staff, great menu, great view. I recommend making your reservation for sunset as it really makes the evening and the perfect atmosphere. We were there for the long weekend with... More

We're locals so this restaurants been around forever, owned by The Von Platten's. They have the best view, consistently good food, and the best view of the bay. A must for a night or or special ocassion. If you don't want to splurge for a fine dinner, Huggo's on the rocks next door has live music nightly, sand in toes... More

I'm giving this a 4 because the location and entertainment were really great. The service was left wanting. Highly recommend people try to arrive a bit before sunset to enjoy the view of the harbor. My husband and I had 7:15 reservations and really still enjoyed the view but realized the sunset would have been cool. The fish dishes were... More

We had heard Huggo's was pricey, with mixed reviews, but perhaps worth it for the ocean views. Our experience was that the prices were fair, the food (each dish) exceptional, and the views at sunset were spectacular. We were pleasantly surprised with every aspect, especially at the attentiveness to 7- and 17-olds with us by an excellent and entertaining waiter.... More
