“Amazing location”
Reviewed March 15, 2014 via mobile

We came here a couple of times after spending the day at A Bay. You can sit right on the beach and watch the sunset. It's spectacular! We only had appetizers and drinks but they were yummy. We looked at the dinner menu but found the prices a bit expensive.

“It is all about the location...”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

We went to Lava Lava twice for lunch. If you want to go for dinner at sunset call or use their on-line system several days ahead they book up for the 5:30- 7:30 block quickly.... We never did get to go for dinner. There were four of us- we tried 8 different items. Everyone was satisfied. I had a Coconut &Lime tropical drink that was amazing. We also had an 18 month old along. Servers were accommodating, bringing her food early and providing a covered plastic cup with a straw. All around good experiences.

“Great Food”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

Stopped into the Lava Lava Beach Club to grab a bite to eat while on the beach.. not only is it front row seating to the beach, there is a DJ there playing music too.. very soothing. and takes requests, My hubby and I shared the Fruit Bowl.. as we don't really eat much.. WOW!!! that thing was huge.. no way could he or I have eaten one on our own.. its a tad pricey.. but oh well.. look where you are eating. 13.00 for the bowl.. which comes with granola and yogurt.. we passed on the yogurt. but that bowl was to die for.. it was beautifully set in half of a pineapple as the vessel. they also gave us a complimentary chocolate cake with macadamia nuts on top which was to die for too... Will I go back? You bet I will.. maybe try something different or just enjoy that fruit bowl and watching the ocean and listening to music.. what a great way to spend a Sunday morning after church.. Kudos Lava Lava club..oh and I might add that the service was excellent.. our server Lucy was so nice and pleasant... excellent all the way around.

“Worst food and drinks of our vacation”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

Stopped by early in day for dinner reservation( our hotel vacation planner recommendation) was told nothing until 8:00, but stop by at 7:00?!? We were seated right away at 7:15 when we arrived and other than being out doors in Hawaii in March, it went down hill from there! The drinks were so watery and tasted of cheap liquor and the food was almost inedible! I had steak and my husband had the ribs.

“Awesome Sunset Experience”
Reviewed March 9, 2014 via mobile

First night on the Big Island was a huge hit! Lava Lava Beach Club set just the right tone for our trip. Right on the beach as sunset unfolded...stunning! A friendly staff including our waitress, Krista, who could not have been better or more friendly. Unique Mahi Nachos got us started along with chips and an island fruit salsa. The Ono special was excellent while the Mahi was a bit over cooked. The atmosphere had just the right touch of "island funk" to launch our Hawaii experience. Don't miss Lava Lava!
