We had complimentary breakfast at the restaurant during our three night stay at the lodge. We had actually planned on having at least one dinner at the restaurant as well, however my girlfriend became ill during the trip and we had to cancel.
The complimentary breakfast includes either orange juice or fresh papaya in addition to an entrée on the menu. We had both the pancakes and a couple of different egg dishes during our stay, all of which were delicious. The pancakes were served with both maple and coconut syrup choices, the latter of which was to die for and had me coming back for the pancakes twice.
As I mentioned earlier, my girlfriend became ill on day 2 of our stay which kept her from being able to attend breakfasts. The staff quickly picked up on this and offered to send me back to the room with the breakfast option of our choice for her to have at home. We declined, however they were kind enough to send us home with a "toast platter" both mornings which were greatly appreciated.
Really bummed that we didn't get to enjoy dinner which I'm sure is excellent, but this establishment gets an A+ for quality of both the food and staff. The dinner is a little on the expensive side based on the menu, but not unreasonable by Hawai'i standards. By far the best dining option in Volcano!
