Over many years (decades?) we’ve dined at and enjoyed Roy’s on the Big Island, Maui and Kauai and three California locations. I am totally hooked on the butterfish and it is the only thing I order at any/all Roy’s. The downside of this is that...More

If you have ever eaten at any Roy's you don't really need a review to know you should eat at this one also. If you have not, and you can afford it (they are not cheap) get with the program and get your butt down...More

Delicious... Amazing.... Really outstanding... Take your choice; that's what the four of us said about dinner last night. Oh, and 'Fabulous' made it into our discussion too. We also dined locally at the Fairmont and the Westin this past week, to enthusiastic reviews, but Roy's...More

I’m guessing at some point this place was great. It’s not anymore. We ate here twice and shame on us for giving it a second try after the first bad experience. The sushi is lack luster - the spring rolls are about the same quality...More

Was told that this was the best restaurant on the entire Island. Well.. prices were 5* but food and service are certainly not! Food thrown at the table but anyone but our server. Main course Fish totally over cooked to the point of falling apart!...More

Our meal was wonderful - unique fish dishes - and the children’s menu was a very good deal. A bit on the pricey side, but the food did not disappoint.
