Good variety, good location

Several choices of Acai bowls, moderately priced, I thought the counters were a little sticky to the touch, the fact the staff was behind a glass barrier was a little off putting, but that may be due to food prep regulations, it made it feel less friendly. Close to Huggo's, good location Frankly... read more

Fabulous acai bowls. A thick smoothie topped with crunchy granola. It's one to eat with a spoon. Sit upstairs where you can see the ocean while enjoying this delightful cold treat. It sits just above Snorkle Bob.

My daughter begged my to go to this place with her. Never had a Acai bowl before, but promised myself to eat healthier so here I am. While the Acai treat itself was Ono, it's the toppings that made it awesome. Fresh, healthy and delicious. Because they make the bowl upon ordering,mit took a few minutes, but well worth the...

Having a bowl at Basik is one of my favorite things to do in Kona. Order your bowl of fresh goodness - fruit, granola and smoothie mixed - and enjoy as you sit only meters from the ocean. They make it fresh for you so you get everything you want, and nothing you don't. Enjoy!

This place has awesome acai bowls. All the fruit and ingredients are fresh. You can watch them make it behind the glass and the fruit is sitting out where you can see the quality. Great place for a good healthy start to your day.

As in a good experience eating healthy food that's easy on the stomach. Enjoyed bowls of granola, fruit, and berries, with an additional acai smoothie on the side. We found it hard to find but just head out on Aliii Drive in Kona, and find it on top of Snorkel Bob's rentals and you will enjoy a pleasant view of... More

Just returned from a week on the Big Island and had Basik Acai Bowls 5 times!!! Couldn't get enough of them! What a great start to the day with a delicious, healthy bowl, which we would eat at the beach across the street. Super nice staff and wonderful bowls!!

Welllll...We are SO GLAD that we did not stay anywhere near Kona on our trip to the BI. But, if we did, Basik Acai would have been the best consolation prize ever! Stay anywhere north...as in any resort in South Kohala. Back to the review...my family of 4 loved loved loved Basik Acai! Any time we went anywhere near this... More
