Stopped here for dinner on our tour with Kalani Tours and it was delicious. Had a Lilikoi Margarita and would recommend for all to try. Service was good and they were all so welcoming and friendly. Would eat here again!

My family and I dine here every time we visit Volcano. The service is spot on and the food is always served fast. They have a small gift shop just off the main entrance to the restaurant. Highly recommended!

We call it casually elegant. Shorts are fine but please keep in mind that the evenings can get quite cool at our 3700 elevation.

Kilauea Lodge and Restaurant, located in the quiet village of Volcano, sits on 5 acres of gardens and gazebos and native forest. This hotel restaurant features a large fireplace, local art, koa tables, and is open nightly. Chef/owner Albert Jeyte blends flavors from his European background with farm, ranch and seafood products from Hawaii, the surrounding Pacific and elsewhere.

Volcano Village is at 3700 feet elevation and evenings are often cool and misty. The historic fireplace welcomes guests with it's cheery fire. Home made soups and breads tease the appetite. Albert specializes in unusual game...venison, antelope, rabbit, duck. The biggest sellers are local fish dishes; ahi, ono, mahimahi and the exotic Tristan lobster. A large wine list complements the eclectic menu.
