This is fine dining in Kona. We have dined at this restaurant on many occasions and have never been disappointed. Reservations are a must. This is not a big restaurant, but it is comfortable with the country french decor and ambience. The chef and his wife are friendly and attentive. The menu offerings are authentic French dishes. We love the... More

Not sure what to expect, as this is a very small restaurant , that is not on the main strip I. Kona. The food was incredible, there were six of us and we all had different meals and all were amazing. You definitely have to make reservations beforehand as there is limited space. The ambience, service is 1st class.

Wonderful dining experience. The food was nearly flawless. Service was friendly, approachable, and helpful. The atmosphere was quaint and interestingly provincial. Unlike any other dining experience you can get on the Big Island. Highly recommended. Be sure to have reservations, as the restaurant is quite small, and be sure to save room for dessert. We had the chocolate soufflé and... More

This is a very small restaurant, which we liked. The service was very good and everyone enjoyed their meal. I had the duck, which was not the best I have had, but it had a nice sauce. The vegetables were very delicious! The lobster bisque was also delicious but it had cooled off by the time it got to us.... More

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
