Nothing fancy here. We had breakfast here while in Volcano. Only a few tables were occupied. Waitress was attentive and food was okay. Loved hearing the staff in the kitchen laughing and singing. It seems that they enjoy their job and each other.

We headed here after a hike in the park. The food was fine and our service was reasonable. Nothing fancy but it fit the bill when we were all hungry. Maybe we were lucky as we went a bit later and it was not very...More

Although the food was decent and reasonably priced, we cannot recommend this restaurant to tourists unless they want to spend their vacation endlessly waiting for a burger. We arrived around 6 on a Friday night and stood waiting to be seated for 20 minutes even...More

Had an awesome breakfast with super friendly service! Pancakes and eggs were cooked to perfection! Shelly was excellent and made sure our coffee cups stayed full!

I love the burgers here. This place has changed a lot tho over the years. Theyve fixed up a lot, changed things. But the food was still great. I only eat burgers here. Must ask for fries crispy or they will be undercooked.

We had a fabulous breakfast here - ok not the most modern environment or spotlessly clean and as it is in the middle of a rain forest you will always get bugs. If you have had a bad experience why do you go back.

Volcano Lava Rock Cafe is a restaurant. Think you have this mixed up with a B&B.
