Amazing service and beautiful view but mediocre food at best. We were very disappointed with the food. Split four dishes between the two of us. Would have rather cooked at home and had an amazing drink ( with mixologist Doug at the Copper Bar). The view is just as good one level up at the hotel.

We were staying at the Waikoloa resort area, and the closer restaurants were booked, so we grabbed a reservation at the Manta for the sunset. We ate outside, with a view of the beautiful beach. (We had been unable to get there early enough to enjoy the beach during the day, because of the limited access for people not staying... More

My wife and I woke up in paradise and were hungry. Thankfully the Mauna Kea Hotel had a wonderful breakfast buffet at Manta. There was everything from made to order omelettes to fresh fruit and even Japanese breakfast offerings. My personal favorite was the macadamia nut pancakes with coconut syrup...it's truly something different from the usual blueberry buttermilk pancakes I'm... More

Spectacular panoramic ocean view. We loved sitting outside. We were fortunate to talk with 2 local staff members, Alma our waitress and Cheryl veteran food runner, who were delightful. They gave us great service with warm friendly aloha. They really made us feel welcomed and at home. Buffet quality and variety of selections excellent. Pastries, papaya with lime, local produce...

It's worth a trip for the view and exploration of the grounds. WINE was good too, but food lacks pizazz ! Watching the Mantas swim close to shore was a special treat!!!

The class and ambiance of the hotel welcomed us, the stunning architecture of the restaurant had us in awe. And that's where it ended. Our dining experience at Manta was partially saved by the extensive, well researched and stocked wine collection albeit it that I had a better chilled Fume Blanc at Brown's Beach House the night before. The host... More

We dined at the Manta Restaurant many nights during our week-long stay at the Mauna Kea Beach Resort. We were never disappointed. The food and view are stellar. Fresh fish, (beautifully presented)---or comfort food, all dishes seemed excellent, well-prepared and appropriately served. There was a strange first-come-first-served even if you made a reservation system that we never got the hang... More

We ate dinner while we were staying at the sister resort. Our table was ocean front with a view of the sunset to die for. My wife and I both had the fresh red snapper with vegetables and black bean sauce which was absolutely delicious. Dessert was mud pie which was also decadently delicious as well. A great dinner evening.
