Every day brings a new fish to the menu based on what was just caught. I love the wraps, the fish sandwiches, the fish & chips, and the non-fish items as well. Great for lunch or dinner with ample portions and offerings of beer or wine. Prepared perfectly and quickly. My favorite restaurant in Pahoa.

Four of us dined at Kaleo's and found the food and service to be excellent. We had a variety of seafood and soup dishes and all were well prepared and tasty. The service was excellent, attentive but not overbearing. There was live music, a lone musician/singer who provided great background music without being loud. After a long day of touring,... More

We weren't overwhelmed with the choices of restaurants in Pahoa, but really wanted to try to something while we were there. SO glad we did because our meal was outstanding- I had a steak salad and my boyfriend had thai seafood curry and both were excellent- with cocktails and an out-of-this-world lillikoi cheesecake (that will kind of change your life!)...

We were looking for a late lunch before a lava cruise, this place looked inviting so we tried it. So glad we did. Service was just right. Our waiter made a beer recommendation that was spot on for lunch. The fish and chips were great, big pieces of mahi done perfectly. Coming back to this part of the island we... More

I understand why Kaleo's is rated #1 in Pahoa. I stopped here for lunch on the way to lava boat tour at Isaac Hale Beach Park. I ordered the calamari for an appetizer, and was extremely happy I did. The calamari is a thick, tender cut with a light tasty batter. I then had the fried mahi mahi which also... More

Warm & inviting atmosphere with delicious local beef burgers. The perfect spot for lunch after snorkeling Kapoho or visiting the thermal pool. The Da Kine burger was perfectly cooked (I ordered medium rare) and the fries were crispy & fresh. I don't eat wheat so I ordered mine without. It really was a great lunch.

This was the perfect stop on our way to the end of highway 130. Easily, my favourite meal in one week on the island. I had the veggie wrap and my husband had the chicken Caesar salad. The wrap was amazing! Filled with hummus and feta and kept me energized for our 8 mile round-trip hike to see the lava... More

We were thrilled with this restaurant. We walked up and down the street, we liked this place the best, looked nice and inviting. I loved that they had the Fujitsu on and the windows opened, lol. Went for lunch on Labor Day. Seems quite popular. Simple menu of american and local type food. I had the prime rib dip sandwich,... More
