We ate here with the family and right away were greeted in the parking lot and pointed where to park. A little fancier on the inside than we expected for this sleepy little village, but the service was great and everyone was friendly. They let us bring in our own bottle of Prosecco and brought us a chill bucket and... More

Kaleo's is a bit up-scale for the Pahoa are so can seem a bit pricey, but not like a good restaurant on the mainland.... for what you get I think the price is fair. It's menu consists of more Hawaiian and Pacific Island Fusion cuisine. The coconut shrimp are excellent as is the ahi appetizer. but of course everyone has... More

Went to Kaleo's the other day for lunch with my girlfriends. We haven't seen each other for a long time and wanted somewhere to relax and have great food. Always love the atmosphere. The service was great. Got seated right away, server was friendly, professional and efficient. We just kept it simple and all had Cobb salads. Presentation was very... More

The food and music here always hit the spot after we give a long lava tour down the road. We always order the ribs, steak or the fresh market fish! Great, live, incredibly talented Hawaiian-style musicians make this place magical! Amazing service. Best place to eat and kick back for locals or tourists.

If there is a special occasion, or just a good reason to treat ourselves to a great meal, Kaleos is the place we choose. The specials are great, pupus to die for, fish is fresh, burgers - Hawaiian beef (so ono) and the live music at dinner is usually fantastic. Salads are incredible the dessert menu - it's all great...

There's a reason this place in number one for lunch and dinner. Very tasty food, decently priced for the quantity and quality of the food, and a good price for draft local beer. Friendly and quick service- what more do you need?!

I went to this restaurant in two different occasions (both lunch) and I really like food there. Fish is very fresh and well prepared and I totally recomend the poke and the crusted fish. Very good typical hawaiian food and quick service.

One of my most memorable dinners - the food was incredible! Gazpacho with watermelon and blueberries was so tasty, and the grilled watermelon was a great compliment. The daily special mahi was so good - breaded and deep fried, but a perfect balance of crispy outside and very tender fish. We shared the banana dessert and were very impressed by... More

Had lunch with a business associate at Kaleo's for the first time. Located about 20 miles fro Hilo town in the quaint town of Pahoa. Had the open face meat loaf sandwich that was delicious, great bread and very generous. My associates had sandwiches which they report were great. Not too busy at lunch but am informed that they are... More
