Fronting the harbor in Kailua-Kona you'll find a few structures from another era. There's a church built by the missionaries, a palace once owned by the Kamehamehas and some old storefronts dating to the plantation era. It's definitely the best seat in town and right in the middle of it all you'll find Tante's. This is one of those places... More

We loved this little place and came here a couple of times from breakfast, and once each for lunch and dinner. We usually stuck to the specials which were a great price and always tasted terrific, but even the regular menu was reasonably priced. Great views overlooking the ocean, terrific for sunset.

Nothing made me get out of bed in the morning faster than the thought of a delicious breakfast at Tante's. I loved the open air deck, listening to the waves while I enjoyed a delicious breakfast assortment. Eating healthy? Try the papaya, yogurt and granola. Big on meat? The Portuguese sausage is fantastic. A trip to Kona isn't complete without... More

Friendly staff, great food, cool 50's retro decor, and great location! Wish there were a few more throughout Maui, since service was really lacking overall on our trip.

The food here is mostly Filipino so if you are not used to that then you may have different opinions. However, we found the food to be delicious and of good quality and a wide selection. Children in our group loved the food too as well as the desserts. The price cannot be beat in Kona and the view was... More

Some of my memories of restaurant meals in Hawaii are influenced by the number of Mai Tai's involved. But this was very nice. They have specials for early dinners. The seafood was great. We could look out over the ocean, but away from the noise of cars and people. Very nice place to eat. Staff helpful.

Ate here twice, good breakfast. Good view of harbor. Friendly staff good service. Enjoyed the live music and talk with aunty. Easy to get to via the kona seaside hotel or road, walking distance from palace and kona harbor.

We went out for an early morning walk and stopped here for breakfast on our way back to our hotel. Our meal was very good and reasonably priced. A native Hawaiian older woman was there at 8am playing on her ukelele, singing, and giving stories about the island. When we walked by there after dinner in the evening, she was... More

We were looking for a bite to eat after a long day of travel. Chose this place from the many along this strip of road. The item I wanted was available only if I ordered one of the five course dinners, too much for me, so I opted for veggie pasta, which was a large portion but average quality. The... More
