“Onoliscious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013 via mobile

Kalbi and BBQ ribs were great! The Lilikoi Cheesecake the owners make themselves was perfect. Lani was a welcoming and wonderful host. What an unexpected find!

“Nicely done”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

We enjoyed dinner here on two evenings. The food was excellent on both occassions and the entertainment was an unexpected plus. The fish was prepared perfectly, the local pork and cabbage was delicious, as was the chicken picatta dish. Good (and reasonably priced) draught Craft Brew on too. Reservations are required for weekend nights; we saw a number of people turned away because the place was fully booked.

“Unexpected suprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

we were traveling around the eastern side of the island site seeing when it came time for lunch. We stopped at Kaleo's and it was a very good meal. The prices were reasonable and the food was excellent and well proportioned. It was a very nice surprise.

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

During our three night stay at the Coconut Cottage B&B, we ate at Kaleo's twice for dinner. Both times, it was incredible. The service is outstanding. The hostess and servers are all incredibly nice, engaging, and personable. We tried appetizers and entrees (and a few recommended specialty cocktails) during both visits and I can honestly say that everything we had was outstanding. They also have live music every night and both performers we were lucky enough to see, were amazing. We were even treated to an authentic Hula dance while we were dining. This place is a MUST if you are in the area!

“Fabulous - had to go twice!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

Ended up at Kaleo's by accident for lunch. It was fabulous! In fact it was so good, that a few nights later we had to take my parents back for dinner. The coconut shrimp were the best I've ever had and my husband raved about the pork and cabbage. The evening entertainment was an added bonus. Definitely worth visiting - it was one of the best restaurants we went to on our trip to the Big Island.
