“friendly, authentic Hawaiian food”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

Had a great lunch at Jackie Rey's open air restaurant. The servers were very friendly in this busy place. The fish was very good and the portions were large. Casual place with music at night. A lot of locals present, so you know it is good! Just south of downtown Kona

“Terrific all the way around!”
Reviewed November 11, 2013 via mobile

We got here just after they opened, and the place was already filling up fast! Very lovely hostess asked if we had a reservation (which looks to be a good idea), but was able to seat us without one. Good thing we did get there early, as it filled up quick!

The service was excellent, very quick even with the amount of volume, and everything ordered was delicious and delivered as ordered; seafood, chicken, desert were all top notch. Almost had to refrain my friend from licking his plate clean!

Be sure to put this on your to eat list, and don't wait until your last day to go here; you'll thank me later.

We ate at this restaurant twice on our recent trip to Kailua-Kona. Both times we had great service, good fresh food and a great experience.

“Excellent service and food!”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

This is a wonderful restaurant with a comfortable family atmosphere. The service is excellent and there is careful thought put into the menu. My husband and I ordered the poke tower. It was amazing! If you're on the Big Island, don't miss this place!

“Great dining experience”
Reviewed November 9, 2013

Caroline greeted us with warmth and professionalism despite our arriving on a Sat night w/o reservations (now I know and understand why the are needed). JB was our wait-person. We immediately felt we were in the hands of someone who knew the menu an could speak about ingredients (very impressive). Cordial and professional...he helped to make the experience very exceptional. And the there was the food...Arugula salad, Spinach salad and Seafood trio Sauces were defined beautifully supplementing the taste of each item with overpowering any item. Lilikoi Crete brulee and passion fruit gelato topped the dining experience. We are so grateful to the chefs, Caroline and JB for a very positive experience. We are going back on Wed, our last night.
