“Lovely Spot for a drink”
Review of Paniolo Lounge

Restaurant details
Reviewed April 25, 2013

We stopped by for a drink after arriving in Hana. We enjoyed a table outdoors overlooking the gardens and with an ocean view. The waiter was very friendly and helped us secure a reservation and nice table for dinner in the hotel restaurant for later that evening. While we didn't order anything to eat, several other guests were enjoying late lunches. The lunch menu is available until 5:30pm after which we were told that it is a bar menu with mostly cold food. There is some music in the evening and it seems to be a popular place for drinks.

While we enjoyed our drinks, I did not receive the drink I ordered. Nevertheless, it was a relaxing respite after a day of driving and sightseeing.

Stopped here after the road to Hana for lunch. Very limited menu, but food was OK and served quickly. Very small portions, very high price for what we got. Nice view if you sit on the terrace. Not sure I would stop here for lunch again.

If you are on the road to Hana, this is one of the only places to stop for a nice relaxing lunch with a adult beverage. And after negotiating this road, you might need two! Very good food and friendly service.

Take it slow. Wonderful warm welcome. One of only two places in town to get a drink, so the next table may have a movie star (whom no one will bother) and the table on the other side may be a local fisherman taking his wife out to dinner. Don't be surprised if your waiter is asked to dance a hula after he serves you your drink. Live singer three times a week.

Be sure to visit the bar on Thursday night when there's live music and wonderful local ladies who are seriously good dancers. Real local hula and music. Other than that the food is way too expensive and the service is slow. Although I had a New York steak grass fed that was priced just about right at $40. There's not much to do in Hana so be sure to visit.
