Loved having a fresh acai bowl. While the price may seem high, it was packed full of fresh ingredients and the small bowl was very filling.

Three rather rude and unfriendly staff that had no regard to address my concern. Very long waits and small portions. After a messed up order the incapable cashier delivered we were let down. A small bowl was supposed to be a large bowl so the cashier grabbed it from my hand and took it into the private kitchen (why is... More

You’ve probably heard of Açai Bowls: a refreshing bowl of goodness featuring a frozen-type-smoothie (more like a sorbet/ice cream/frozen yogurt texture) with an array of tropical fruits and goodness all over. You can have honey, coconut, cocoa, strawberries, bananas… everything you can think of. It’s a fruit bowl on steroids. The best place to get them in the island is... More

A healthy breakfast, lunch, dinner... More

My wife and I loved our visit to Basik Acai. This tiny counter-service restaurant offers the best Acai bowls and smoothies in Kona. The staff is excellent and the vibe is super-fun.

No frills, low key vibe and the best acai bowls I've ever had. Been looking for them back in the states and none compare! We went 3 days in a row while on the big island. I wish we had them locally! Miss them!

Amazing flavor, fresh fruit, so filling. A great pre dive snack. Gorgeous views from the place while you eat. Any of the bowls are good, but we loved the Banyan and can't wait to try the Kilauea. A must visit.

Great Location across from Huggo's on The Rocks. All sorts Of Flavors. My favorite I always get is with Peanut Butter. The Girls are more generous making the Bowls w papaya and fruit Toppings .. If you get some of the guys they are more skimpy so you may have To ask for more while he's making it.

We've been to the mainland basik acai, but this one was better, as there is no line. It's exactly what we were looking for, once we landed.
