It's an indoor and... More

We ate at the hotel when we first arrived and were pleased by the food and service. Demand is high for sunset seating times, so be aware.

We have fond memories of previous meals at Canoe House, so we were excited about returning now, nine years later. Unfortunately, our expectations were not met.

Were celebrating husband's 70th birthday. The ambience on the beach was exceptional. The service from our eager young server could not have been more helpful. We had some people in our party with odd dietary requirements, and she knew exactly what to recommend. And the food was excellent. Price is high, but you get what you pay for!

This is a can't miss stop every time I am on the Big Island. The best setting for a sunset anywhere, food is local fusion based and always executed wonderfully.

Since there are few options for dining at this resort, if you have the chance and it's open, the CanoeHouse is worth it. Amazing ambiance and location. Food is fabulous too depending on what function you are there for.

We were staying at the fairmont, so decided to take the walk by the ocean to caneohouse. It took a good 20 minutes as there is no proper sidewalk, it is very uneven. But its a pleasent walk. Food and experience at canoe house was great. would recommend for a romantic dinner

Thank rsksingh
