Ate a late breakfast here on our first day in Kona. We weren't very impressed. Food was passable, but wish we would have kept looking. Restaurant is old and needs a really good cleaning and face lift.

Great location with ocean view. The food was well prepared, fairly priced and good wait staff. There is parking behind the restaurant.

Breakfast was great with a variety of food choices & morning mimosas and bloody Mary's. The prices were reasonable and the location was perfect as you are right on the water.

First place we chose for dinner on Kona and it was good. Serving sizes are a bit strange, my wife ordered an appertizer that was large, my seafood combo was a little small for what we paid. But lets get to positives, the food was...More

Yes. There is a road behind all the restaurant and shops. You can find parking in all the lots that feed the shopping. If one is full just go down the street a little. The downtown Kona area is very compact, so walking... More
