We did not stay at the hotel but wanted to come and eat. We got a wonderful table with a beautiful view close to the music. Limited menu but typical resort food and prices. I will say the clam chowder and the malasadas were fantastic....More

We have eaten at the Copper Bar several times since we are staying at the Mauna Kea. Sitting overlooking the ocean is very pleasant. The variety of menu items have allowed us to go back several times.

The Mauna Kea has upgraded their restaurants considerably. Lovely spot for a meal. Delicious truffle fries, steaks, salads and amazing desserts. While the service was slow, the staff was incredibly nice.More

Copper Bar serves small plates and a very limited menu at dinner time. The food tasted good, although the steak, when ordered medium, was still quite rare. The calamari strips were good. Prices are high for small portions of food. In the morning, Copper Bar...More

Casual dining overlooking the ocean. Salads are fresh and they have amazing truffle fries. Not a huge menu but something for everyone and their vanilla ice cream is to die for. Decor is unique and very nice.
