My wife and I arrived at our rental house overlooking the Pacific, and headed into Pahoa 10 miles away for our first meal in Hawaii. What a great choice we made. Salads were all local produce, and the shrimp and calamari entrees were incredible. Our only "complaint" was the enormously serving portions, which resulted in a great beach lunch the... More

I really like the menu here, interesting fresh good tasting food. Our waiter couldn't have been more accommodating, friendly and efficient. When it's busy, it's a bit noisy, but we were on the porch, so better. They have their own parking, which is handy in Pahoa.

Pahoa is a small town but it has several of the best restaurants in the area. While unassuming in appearance, Kaleo's restaurant was recommended by our B&B host and was a great choice for us for dinner. The poke appetizer was filled with luscious chunks of ahi lightly covered with onions and soy sauce. We'd gladly order more. The Asian... More

Love treating myself to a night out at Kaleo's. The staff here is always friendly and the burgers are delicious. Recently I've been straying away from the beef to sample their tempura fish and fish sandwich and was not been disappointed!

Does not look like much from the outside but it is nice inside. Great food and service. We had the marlin fish sandwich (chose blackened) and Kahana beef burger. Both were excellent. Definitely worth the stop.

Service can be rather slow. Prices are a little high for Pahoa, more like Honolulu tourist prices. The clam chowder is good. & fresh fish OK. Dining on the front Lanai is pleasant.

According to locals( our B&B host) and the guide book, this is the best restaurant in town. It is indeed very tasty with an affordable price! I am very impressed by the portion and quality of my $14 Hawaiian Teriyaki Chicken entree, as I was under the impression that everything in Hawaii is super expensive ( which is true in... More

I really enjoyed the chill vibe and great food here. The Blackened Mahi BLT and the Blackened Mahi Wrap in particular were excellent.

If you are looking for the cleanest restaurant in Pahoa, then go to Kaleo's. But do not have high expectations for the food and drink. The buyers are bland, the Pork and Cabbage is greasy, and the drinks are weak. Disappointing
