We ate at the Lava Lava Beach Club a couple of times. The food was very good and on one occasion we ordered, waited and after a while we were informed our chosen food was sold out. Due to the time we had waited we were given a replacement (our choice) free of charge. Can't really fault that, eh!

The position is right on the water and on the first occasion there was a guitarist playing which was really lovely. We thought the prices were fair and we enjoyed our time.

The bar is very open so on a good day it is really lovely. We didn't experience bad weather but it does have shelter overhead so I would think it would still be OK.

Staff were very lovely and attentive.

Location, Location, Location says it all , on the beach ,toes in the sand and a Mai Tia on the way. The place we always take our visitors to, pretty much the first or second day they are here , to set the mood. We live in Waikoloa and it is still our Sunset watching location !

Food was good, service was excellent. I'll go back. As I live here, I am pretty well versed in the local restaurants.

We were so disappointed by Lava Lava. It's in a fantastic location on the beach and surrounded by pretty trees. We watched the sunset.

It is a large venue with tables sprawling over a large area. It was also very busy. Despite this the service was very prompt and friendly.


Two disappointments. Firstly the live music was loud which made it difficult to have a conversation.

Secondly and most importantly the food was very poor. It was the worst food we experienced during our nine night stay in Hawaii. The coconut prawns seemed to have been deep fried in grease. Kids quesadilla was also extremely greasy. Seems the location and service are enough for many people but if you expect decent food go somewhere else.

We cannot recommend.

We recently went up to Anaehoomalu Beach to have a swim. We went to the Lava Lava Beach Club for the first time. It has a lovely lanai and you look right out on the ocean. The service was great and the menu offers lots of local, fresh food.
