Primal vibe with clever, creative menu options of HEALTHY generous portion ACAI bowls, shakes, smoothies and additional nutritionally added options. Oceanfront breezes and "rooftop-like" photo opportunities galore, nestled in one of Kona's famous nightlife niches right along Alii Drive in front of Huggo's and NOT TO BE MISSED in your oceanfront stroll of downtown Kona. A healthy breakfast, lunch, dinner... More

My wife and I loved our visit to Basik Acai. This tiny counter-service restaurant offers the best Acai bowls and smoothies in Kona. The staff is excellent and the vibe is super-fun.

No frills, low key vibe and the best acai bowls I've ever had. Been looking for them back in the states and none compare! We went 3 days in a row while on the big island. I wish we had them locally! Miss them!

Amazing flavor, fresh fruit, so filling. A great pre dive snack. Gorgeous views from the place while you eat. Any of the bowls are good, but we loved the Banyan and can't wait to try the Kilauea. A must visit.

Great Location across from Huggo's on The Rocks. All sorts Of Flavors. My favorite I always get is with Peanut Butter. The Girls are more generous making the Bowls w papaya and fruit Toppings .. If you get some of the guys they are more skimpy so you may have To ask for more while he's making it.

We've been to the mainland basik acai, but this one was better, as there is no line. It's exactly what we were looking for, once we landed.

I love their Açai Bowles! You can add any additional fruits as a topping. The small Bowle is a perfect size and the large Bowles are huge. So you defently get enough.

My daughter and I had one of their Acai bowls and they were amazing! It was so good that we came back a second time to get another. The fruit was fresh and delicious. We ordered smalls and we could barely finish them. We would highly recommend this place!!

I came here for breakfast one morning and it was brilliant. So fresh and nice to have something that's not fried! If only I could transport this place home!
