“Nice restaurant with views of the crater”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

My wife and I ate at the Volcamo House in September. We had visited the Park and after checking in to our local hotel returned to the park for dinner. We didn't realize we could have stayed in the park, but the local Volcano Forest Inn was only ten minutes from the park entrance. Although it was a rainy, foggy night we could see the glow of the volcano from our white clothed table by the window. Service was pleasant and the menu had a good variety of fish, beef and chicken. We had the roasted chicken, which was served with mushrooms and wild rice. It was nicely done and tasty. The ceasar salad was fresh and a good size.

“Food was good, view was great!!”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

Good food and great service and view make this the choice for eating in Volcano. There really aren't many restaurants to choose from near and inside the park, so having this restaurant in the park overlooking the crater is an easy choice! It just re-opened with a new menu, so if you have eaten there before, it will not be the same. Nice, white table cloth tables add to the ambiance with floor to ceiling windows the entire length of the restaurant.

“Delicious meals”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

We enjoyed dining here because the food was very tasty and the atmosphere and service were wonderful. Keep in mind that the salads are very large. It was very pricey, but probably should be expected.

“One of the best meals in a long time except....”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

My wife and I recently ate here and had an almost perfect experience. We arrived 30 minutes before our reservation but the manager was very helpful and got us in a little early. The food was exceptional-the ribeye steak was fantastic with kale,Maui fried onions and rum butter on top. My wife just had chips and salsa. However the chips were made from taro root, breadfruit and purple sweet potato. They also were very good. Service was also very good until it came to dessert. The dessert was good, a fruit tart and Kona coffee cheese cake. Unfortunately we had to wait almost half an hour for it. We had our dessert and chips and salsa complimentary and the manager was very apologetic explaining there was some foul up in the kitchen. Apart from that the meal was excellent as was the view of the glowing lava crater. A very pleasant surprise.
