On Thanksgiving evening we acted on a local reccomendation for dinner while in the southeast corner of the island horseback riding and had an outstanding meal at a reasonable price. We did not have a reservation but waited just 10 minutes. The wait staff was great and the food delicious. We had the fish of the day, calamari and shrimp... More

Reurning from some snorkelling we decided to act on a local tip and visit Pahoa for dinner. This village is definitey off beat offering many home made food choices but we settled on Kaleo's. Unassuming from the street this restaurant has a big parking lot and is quite a large establishment. Fresh fish dishes dominate the menu alongside the usual... More

In October, we took a drive through the Pahoa area. By midafternoon we were hungry but being older we don’t eat too much. We ordered a cheeseburger which we split. The cheeseburger was excellent, French fries hot and the service staff very willing to assist us with a split meal. Definitely a place to return to for a full meal.

Not a fancy place but there are no fancy restaurants around this area. Great food before we went on the Ocean lava tour. Friendly people and good service.

Some guidebooks advise skipping pahoa for Hilo for good eats but if you are anywhere near pahoa east of volcano national park this is the place to eat. Huge portions and fantastic well prepared dishes. We tried the Korean BBQ ribs and the fried oho and both were amazing and served with a lovely salad of lightly dressed greens and... More

We ate here twice to try items friends had recommended: the fish and chips, the calamari, and the giant shrimp. All were outstanding, but especially the calamari which is so large and soft it almost melts in your mouth. Their seafood tasted very fresh. We did not try any of the main entrees, so cannot review those. The service and... More

The town of Pahoa on Hawaii Island is a laid back little place, but it is not short on great places to eat, and Kaleo's just might be the best! Whether you enter on foot, or are welcomed by the smiling valet, you will be served a heaping helping of ALOHA! The mood is warm and friendly, with live music... More

Great drinks, apps and menu selections. Get the calamari coconut app for sure. Servers are great and the parking attendant is the best. We went there 2 times in 5 days.

Both the quality and variety of meals was excellent, and our server was great! Another bonus: they have their own parking lot.
