Tiny restaurant with only ten tables but the food all home made was like dining in Paris. Great meal, restaurant was run by the owners and their service and knowledge of the food made the meal more enjoyable.

Went for a wine pairing dinner and it was fabulous. Wines from Trefethen all paired with excellent dishes. It's a funny little restaurant with no windows that seats only 40 some odd people. You can easily picture yourself in France except the people don't talk funny. It is casual pace so prepare dine not dash.

Had a beautiful dinner here last night -- my husband was thrilled with his double portion foie gras & scallops, and my veal dish was excellent. Very nice wine selection. Only 10 tables, so very quaint. Nice to get away from the tourist/water scene for one night. If you love french food, give it a try! The chef and his... More

We have been to La Bourgogne many times over the years. The quality of the food is more consistent than anywhere else in Kona. We usually go for special occasions, but have also attended a couple of the wine dinners that they hose during the summer months. I have never been disappointed, and have tried many things that I normally... More

Friends had mentioned a wonderful French restaurant in Kona. We love french food. so we had to try it. It is small, very small, but once you are inside you are transported to France in the ambiance and decor. We found the owners to be delightful. The husband is the chef and server; his wife, the hostess and server. I... More

I ate at Merriman's, Brown's Beach House, Canoe House, Beach Tree and Hualalai Grill on my last trip to the Big Island but the food at La Bourgogne remains the best on the Big Island. Very reasonably priced wine list. Excellent classic French menu. You will make a big mistake if you vacation on the Big Island and don't eat... More

Not what you would expect to find in Hawaii but pleasantly surprised. Restaurant is small, quaint with personal service by the owners themselves. Not always easy to get a restaurant as it fills up quickly so plan ahead. Loved the Veal. Give it a try, you'll be glad you did.

Owners (who are chef & server) are snobby. Keep the temperature to their own comfort level, not the guests'. Everyone wearing coats or freezing. Seem to give better treatment depending on "who you are" or "who you know", otherwise are curtly polite at best. Canceled our reservation at 3:00pm for same night reservation- It was our anniversary. I asked how... More

Based on many reviews we made a reservation at La Bourgogne ( a must). It was a wonderful experience meeting the Chef and his wife as they moved around the small dining room ensuring that each guest was pleased with their selections. The menu is extensive with items such as venison and buffalo not often seen. The preparations are wonderful... More

This has been a Kona treasure for years. The food is outstanding, prepared to order by the chef/owner, and he and his wife are the servers, and they add a special touch to the dining experience. There are often items such as venison on the menu, and the preparation is excellent. The bree appetizer is fantastic, and if you save... More
