This restaurant offers a wide variety of crepes, from main dishes to desserts, at very reasonable prices. The food is excellent, but the service was slow, apparently because of a rather limited staff. We were treated to music during lunch, and that was an added bonus.

Hawaii best kept secret. Just great food prepared by a great French chef. Coming from a family of great chefs she is one of the best.

My party of 4 had crepes only and two were desserts that were great. Full marks for the chef! Try the strawberry and banana one.

Stopped in for crepes, but a couple of us felt more like traditional breakfast. The former worked out well; the latter was a big mistake. The crepes are awesome. Prepared just as you would find on the streets of Paris. You can order sweet or savory and they are equally awesome. Highly recommended. Everything else sucked. The "hash browns" were... More

Okay, I had a different experience than some others. We walked in for lunch, and were promptly greeted and seated. The restaurant was quiet, with a few customers. I had their Alaska crepe, with Red Salmon, spinach, olives, artichokes and mozzarella cheese. So, I wondered, how would this taste. Awesome. The olives and artichokes popped with flavor, and I added... More

Nice, light crepes. Don't mean to be mean but the meal was better once the live music stopped. Staff was super super super nice and made suggestions for us tourists!

Love coming here! Fun staff and even better food. It's located in east side of the island, so if you're visiting the big island this is defiantly somewhere to stop by. I recommend for dessert the blueberry cc. Will come back soon.

I was at Magic Pan for lunch with a couple of friends. The food is decent with good-sized servings; my chicken was dry, my friends were happy with their salmon pancakes. However, I was astounded and dismayed by the noise from dish washing in the kitchen which went on almost ceaselessly throughout our meal. The dish washing area is up... More

Although service may be on slow side make time to check out this eatery. French food in Hilo CAN be good. A friend taught me to make crepes and even gave me a pan but it's so much better to have someone else do it for you. Being on a vegetarian diet we were pleased there was more than one... More

We happened upon this place last week while walking around Hilo and popped in. My son and husband had one of the savory crepes; i had a sweet one (dont remember what it's called) with cinnamon, butter, ice cream. It was so delicious - I could eat one every day. The others were also extremely happy with their savory crepes.... More
