If you are on the Big Island of Hawaii and near Kailua-Kona you should have dinner and watch the sunset over the water at Huggo's The food is wonderful and the Lava Flow is a great mixture of Coconut Rum, Coconut milk, Pineapple juice and Strawberries. The small plates are enough for 2 and the large plates are filling so... More

When the two of us showed up the hostess said it would be five minutes and we should wait on the bench outside, which we did. After a few minutes she came out and said she was wondering where we had gone. We were seated and ordered our food. After a while, one of us got a completely cold breakfast... More

We do at time have to go on a bit of a wait to accommodate all of our wonderful guests. There is no excuse for cold food or a wait between people’s meals, and for this we are sorry.... More

This is my absolute favorite place to dine in Hawaii. Whether it's breakfast lunch or dinner the staff here does an amazing job. It is clear that the management is on it when it comes to hiring and training to have such professional employees. Good food, good times !

We went to Huggos for a family/business dinner. Both the food and service were excellent. It was easily one of our favorite restaurants on the island during our visit. The views of the ocean from this restaurant are top notch. We highly recommend stopping by Huggos if you visit the beautiful Island of Hawai'i.

The atmosphere was excellent! The restaurant was open air, sitting right on the oceanfront. We were able to watch the sun set while enjoying our appetizer. The food was amazing....everything was season well and had so much flavor. The service was excellent.
