After living in Kailua-Kona for about a year, and after being told by friends I was missing out on a true culinary treasure. It's easy to miss La Bourgogne as you drive along Kuakini Highway. The building looks like an insurance office or real estate title company... but as soon as you step through the door, eyes adjusting from the... More

Although I've eaten all over the world and have spent 5 or more times as much for meals in Paris, Rome, London, Montreal, Istanbul, and even Las Vegas, I don't think I've ever had a better restaurant meal than the foie gras and cassoulet at La Bourgogne. Wine pairings were perfect, service was superb, and the food was delicious. The... More

This is a charming family owned French restaurant. I would say this is the nicest restaurant on the Big Island. We have celebrated many special occasions here.

I can't understand the high ratings. It must be because its Hawaii and prople are on vacation, or have never had real French food. Went to celebrate a birthday. No atmosphere, no view...its a box room. Poor, rude service, burnt garlic in the escargot, and bland fish "stew"? The sweet breads were average. This is an expensive restaurant that would... More

One of the top three meals I've eaten in a restaurant in the past 50 years! Fantastic food, great wine pairings, and attentive service - at 3/4 the price I'd expect to pay in Kona for this quality (no view). Perfect place for a romantic getaway or a special birthday celebration. I had the foie gras with a glass of... More

La Bourgogne is a tiny hidden gem about 3 miles outside of Kona. With only 12 tables located in the ground floor of an older 2 story building it would be easy to overlook the restaurant. We have been coming to the Big Island for 20 years and this remains one of our favorite dining spots. The food is great... More

The only thing french about this restaurant is the online menu. No one that helped us spoke a word of french in response to my French Canadian companion's french until we provided our credit card with the check. Both our meats, veal and ribeye were tough. Waitors said Colorado beef is always tough. The deserts were the best part of... More

If you want a view, this is not the place for you. You want good food this is it. They serve food you find in San Francisco or Paris. We have never been disappointed (about 10 occasions). We've tried about everything on the menu. Put a smile on your face and you won't be disappointed with the couple who run... More
