Do not miss the sunset from the Lavalava! The friendly staff and great food is sure to please. why not five stars? It is only because the prices are a bit high, but that is the resort life, and it is well worth a few...bucks more to experience this location.More

Best time to visit is late afternoon before sunset. Try to get a seat on the beach. Food is good too.

Been to this place a few times and it's always been an enjoyable experience. Service is first rate and the food is wonderful. And the location can't be beat. Go on Sunday for their brunch and get the Loco Moko. Can't comment on the COVID...parts, because we were there in May 2019 even though I had to put Aug 2019.More

We actually stumbled across this place and the beach, we had no idea it was here, So obviously we came in from the beach and ordered drinks, we weren’t allowed to have them back at our spot on the beach which was totally ok with...us, as they suggested we could drink them outside Beside the bar where they have a tun of outdoor games set up Totally awesome definitely worth the trip to visitMore

This delightful beach club has become one of our favorite lunch spots when on the Big Island. Just steps away from the popular "A" Beach, the friendly staff is prompt with tropical cocktails and an above average menu of beach grub.

The place was packed with a long waiting list. So..... We grabbed a table in the bar when someone left. Saved a 30+ minute wait. The food was fantastic. Travis provided great service and took care of our needs during the time we were there....Right on th ebeach with a beautiful sunset. The prices are expensive but it is Hawaii.More

Amazing beach front seating. Restaurant sits on a sandy beach, which is uncommon on the Big Island!! Typical but tasty bar foods, a bit expensive, but the view is worth the price!

You know that those are great questions. Children would love Lava Lava. Their staff will try to give the table requested but you may have to be patient. Have an extra drink. And have fun!
