Popular place with nice atmosphere and excellent food and wine menu. Staff are generally very good and attentive. Very nice wine menu to go with both fish and meat dishes. Roy's is all about consistency and it delivers.

Have been to Waikaloa many times but this was our first visit to Roy's. My food was absolutely delicious, although expensive. Enjoyed our evening at Roy's.

The service was really professional, the food quality is as good as it gets for the Big Island. Great place to dine with the family.

The food was delicious and well presented. The service was absolutely below average. The patrons were mostly sunburned fifty-something tourists, getting louder and louder as the cocktail consumption progressed. I won't be returning. I might have considered returning if the service was better.

Nice appetizers, entree a little over priced. My wife cannot stop herself from ordering the chocolate lava cake for dessert.

We had an amazing dinner here. The butterfish was fantastic! The entire waitstaff was extremely attentive and friendly. I am looking forward to eating here again before we leave.

We were able to snag a 5PM New Years Eve dinner here (my son’s 16th Bday dinner) and we were quite happy. The apps, the entrees and the deserts were awesome. I had scallops and lobster. So good. The view was great as were in...More

Must have made a mistake with one star....we had a delightful evening at the restaurant. It was easy to park and the shopping center had entertainment after dinner. I think we might have had an early bird dinner and the... More
