We recently had lunch at Lava Lava while on the Big Island for a business meeting. Our neighbor had recommended it to us, and we're glad we took the recommendation. I read reviews before we left for Hawaii, so I was aware of the comments on questionable service. We arrived early and waited for the restaurant to open, by walking on the beautiful beach where it is located. We had no problems being seated. The food was good--we opted for a salad for lunch, and the service we received was great. Perhaps we were lucky, as the number of visitors to Waikoloa seemed to be down, compared to other visits, but wait staff seemed to be constantly checking to insure that we were happy. The location is incredible, right on the beach, and it's very restful to relax and watch the ocean while you eat your food. The restaurant is located next to the beach park located behind the Marriott.
