Every thing was prepared to perfection and not only was it a visual treat to see it was pure foodgasm with every bite don't... More

Great location at the head of Ali'i Drive. Had a very enjoyable dinner -- calamari appetizer, Ono with Ginger and really good Monchong with risotto. Friendly waitress, nice but slightly noisy ambiance.

Menu has everything from burgers to fine dining. We went for the upper end and were not dissapointed. Cocktails seemed the norm, but a reasonable winelist was there as well, and the server was knowledgeable about the wine.

If you're in the mood for a delicious breakfast, this place is for you. The food was awesome. The location and beautiful ocean view top it off. Our server, originally from Alaska, was so sweet. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. If we had more time left on our trip we definitely would have went back.

Have been coming here for the last 3 years. Breakfast is great especially the Benedict's, Loco Moco (huge portion) and the Coconut and Macadamia Nut French Toast. Service has always been a little slow. Most of the staff seem to operate on island time and are pleasant but not very attentive to your needs. If your used to service in... More

My partner and I ate here recently and were thrilled with the quality and presentation of the meals and drinks! We had a flaming cocktail of some sort which was really tasty and very entertaining. Their Clam Chowder was superb! Atmosphere was great as well. One little thing - I ordered one of the dinner specials but this somehow got... More

Are at Fish Hopper with my family. All the food was excellent. Really good service too. Fish & chips were great but portions a bit small. Would recommend to anyone.

Service was slow. Not sure if its a local thing, but to wait almost 45 minutes for breakfast when place is half empty is a bit long. Had the crab omelette, with a guava mimosa. Things were so slow, I wasn't offered another drink, instead bill came out. Appeared not a lot of staff working not his day.

Can't go wrong with anything on the menu. The bread bowl clam chowder is amazing. Prices are a little too high even for Kona but it is a nice stop none the less. Where else can you get a $25 Bloody Mary with a crab cakes slider stuck on top? Wait staff more attentive than at most restaurants in the... More
