Best meal we had in a week on the island. The catch of the day (ahi) on a bed of salad was excellent. And then there is the mango cobbler :-) It can be a bit noisy, though we found this to be true of...every restaurant we went to. If it’s warm enough sitting on the balcony is quieter and has a nice view of the sunset.More

I keep reading these review that say service is slow. Mayb these people don't understand aloha. This is family owned business with the best food on island. Their fish preparations are so special, we have eaten here over 20 times and spend all our special...occasions here. The staff are friendly and courteous. If the service is too slow of main landers them maybe you should go somewhere that's more touristy. The atmosphere is quiet and breezy, and the music is always enjoyable. And the prices are very reasonable. Much less than the tourist traps in Waikoloa. If you;re in a rush, don't come to Hawaii. This a place to relax, have a great meal, speand time talking to your loved ones, and count your blessings. And don't forget the dessert!More

Our family of 7 visited here this week, making a reservation at the last minute. We were one of the last groups in the restaurant and they made us feel very welcome as they promptly led us to our table. Everyone enjoyed their meal, especially...the catch of the day (Ahi) and the seafood pasta. But the desserts absolutely capped off the meal perfectly. They sounded so go good that each of us ordered our own dessert - unheard of in our family. We were all in heaven, especially me after my Macadamia Nut Pie. If you're in the Captain Cook area around dinner time, don't miss the Keei Cafe!More

The Ahi Tuna dishes were excellent. The hostess was very attentive and the restaurant is quiet and very pleasant. We stumbled across Keei Cafe 11 years ago and always go back and take our friends when we go to the Big Island.

Looking for something to cap off a perfect day on the way back from Kona and this was it. Great atmosphere, music, coqui frogs and decent wine selection. Went with an appetizer and the catch of the day. Didnt disappoint!

Four of us came to eat on a Wednesday at 5:00 when they start serving....everything was wonderful. You can eat out on the terrace and see the ocean (You're not on the ocean, but you can see it). We had a wonderful server, the owners...niece, the place was clean, and we were very happy with everything. We had stuffed portabella mushrooms with cheese. We also had two different side salads. Two of us had sea food pasta (We both ate everything on our plate) Another person had Ahi with the miso salad and my sister had the steak....All plates were eaten to the last morsel. Great place to eat. We did not find the service slow, so come early.More

We just had one of the most unbelievable meals that we have ever had. We shared the special #4 with rare Ahi which came with a papaya wine reduction sauce and mashed potatoes, mushrooms, spinach, asparagus, green beans and red peppers. The flavors were absolutely...perfect and everything was prepared to perfection. We were so happy that we came here before our last night in Hawaii so we can come back again. Loved this place and will be back soon.More
