“Mai-Tais to die for; Cuisine delectable; Service- WOW!”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

Who knew, just of Rte 130 in tiny little Pahoa (between Hilo and the Volcano National Park) lies this absolute TREAT! Casual attire, yet you'll be greeted car side and your door opened for you; Drinks are delicious (and copious); cuisine utterly delectable, whether full-out meat 'n' potatoes, vegetarian, Hawaiian, Italian or whatever your tastebuds desire. 15 mins or so from Hilo. Do it :)

“You'll Want to Eat Here”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

We were renting a house nearby and found the recommendation for this restaurant on Yelp. We all enjoyed our food and had excellent service. There's even a fella in the parking lot directing traffic! Very nice dinner music, too!!

“A real surprise...”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

We did not expect to find such fabulous food in this small town. Even though the restaurant was crowded we were treated so well. The drinks were beautifully prepared and the atmosphere made us feel very glad to be there. It was raining but the cozy feeling was perfect. All of the staff was friendly and helpful.
Be sure to make a reservation. It can get crowded. It would be a shame to miss this experience.

“Outstanding Food”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

We wandered into the town of Pahoa on hwy 130 on the Big Island. We rolled the dice and ate at Kaleo's. I had a Mahi wrap and my wife had a mediterranean platter. The food was great. The service was a bit slow, but that could be the laid back Hawaiian style. Lunches run about $10-15, which is reasonable for HI. Worth a stop is you are going through Pahoa.
