While the prices are a bit high compared to the mainland, the quality of our meals and service exceeded our expectations. Be sure to save room for desert! Highly recommended!

Not a great place for kids and it is fairly expensive. But the food was amazing and the service was great.

This place is located just across from the pier, but if you want a view, make reservations and request a window table. Open air dining (no air conditioning, but overhead fans). Tables are a little close to each other, but with open air dining it...More

Food inconsistent. Some items tasty, others not. Service was good but not great. I had higher expectations and was disappointed. Scallops tasty, calamari had a fishy flavor, risotto tasty but mushy. Chocolate cake was just ok

Good food and service. They make the best clam chowder around. The calamari was fresh and the coconut shrimp, seafood pasta and chicken Parmesan were all tasty. We tried the chocolate lili koicake which was also good.

Yes. There is a road behind all the restaurant and shops. You can find parking in all the lots that feed the shopping. If one is full just go down the street a little. The downtown Kona area is very compact, so walking... More
