We were seated immediately (about 6:00 on a weekday),our waitress wasted no time greeting us, and was so friendly, cheerful and knowledgable about items on the menu, which were not familiar to us. She saw to it that we were served our drinks and appetizer promptly, but never made us feel rushed. The food was simply fabulous, and the presentation... More

Nice, friendly staff with efficient service, Well located with a view of the bay & cool Hawaiian breezes coming through the open-style setting. The menu was fresh, favouring local ingredients. Good choice of beers & wines to choose from, not to mention... More

Ate here last night. Seafood specials excellent with some interesting takes on the local fresh fish ,a little bit more adventurous than simply grilled or blackened e.g.my swordfish in a lovely white wine cream sauce with mushroom ravioli,my wife's Mahi Mahi with creamy risotto . Big portions ,not that I'm recommending that particularly , nice reasonably priced wine list and... More

Fish Hopper is our go-to restaurant for breakfast with a fantastic ocean view. We are regulars at this charming spot on the bay. We celebrate birthdays here, and take our out of town guests for some village charm. The staff is professionally accommodating and welcoming. The food and value is spot-on. David & Gloria

Having spent the last 4 months in Kona I have tried many of the local restaurants. Our favorite for casual dining is the Fish Hopper. Great breakfasts and excellent dinners. Service is top notch - friendly and professional. Great view, comfortable seating. Fish and eggs are our go-to breakfast here, and the fish at dinner is outstanding.

Stopped here really to get out of the rain on our last day in Hawaii. What a great decision! Service was fast, food was delicious, drinks were great and our waiter was wonderful. The restaurant is open so the view of the ocean and the boardwalk was beautiful. I would recommend eating here while in Kona, you won't be disappointed.

My family (with an 8-year old) went to dinner for my birthday. We called ahead to reserve a window seat which gave us breathtaking views of the coastline. Inside we were greeted by warm hospitality and a modern yet warm atmosphere. Appetizers and drinks were served promptly. We never felt rushed to leave. The food was amazing, from the appetizers...

We loved the atmosphere of this open air restaurant. The staff was friendly and attentive. The happy hour drinks were phenomenal. We had delicious happy hour appetizers, too. If you're ever in Kona, this is the place to eat a late lunch or early dinner. (During happy hour).
