My wife and I ate here on a Saturday night when the restaurant was busy. She had the scallops and I had the beef ribs. As usual both were excellent along with the soufflé we split. Great visit to Roy's and a nice setting.

Awesome service and excellent food. You never go wrong at Roy's for surf or turf. Your greeted with a bowl of warm edemame before you order drinks or food, and it's delicious appetizer itself. The food portions are more than ample and can be shared. Definitely a must do on any trip to Kailua-Kona.

We had a Thursday night reservation, changed it online to Wed but they didn't show a booking for us, thankfully we were with friends who let us crash their romantic dinner reservation and the team seemed annoyed to change the booking to 4 but they did make it happen for us. Their prix fix menu was delicious with an assorted... More

Mac nut snapper was good. Service was spot on. Chocolate lava cake was yummy, a Roys classic. Location is not ocean view, but fine.

This is probably one of the best restaurants on the resort. We had dinner here and everything was amazing. The appetizers were great as were the main courses. The dessert was also amazing. The service was superb. The place is extremely expensive but you get your money's worth

I am a big fan of Roy's. This is not a typical Roy's. This is the worst Roy's of the ones I have visited. Unlike all other Roy's the ambience is cold and dated. The lighting is uninspiring. This was my third and last time. I have a garlic allergy. When we told the waiter that he became visibly uncomfortable.... More

If you're staying in the Waikoloa Resort, this is the best place for dinner IMHO. We choose the prix fixe, a three-course meal with wine pairings. Absolutely divine! Great ambience, professional service, great plate presentations, and most importantly--delicious food. You won't be disappointed.

What started out to be a quick meal at the end of a long day out on the island turned out to be an exquisite dinner with a great wine choice. The seafood stew and the butterfish were excellent! Preparation and presentation were masterful. From appetizer to dessert, this restaurant was a top choice for us.

If you're looking for elegance and refinement, you need a different restaurant. You may need a different island. However, Roy's continues to serve substantial portions of well made food and fresh fish. It's packed on a Saturday night, so book a table on their website in advance. This is a good place to have a big noisy dinner with lots... More
