Enjoy your food in the beautiful Mauna Kea hotel. This is a low key, casual restaurant with upscale 'pub food".

We have visited the Mauna Kea for sunset cocktails for over twenty years and this latest remodeling of their open air bar is beautiful, stylish and comfortable. With Hawaiian music, delicious appetizers, wonderful tropical drinks and superb ocean views, the Copper Bar at the Mauna Kea Hotel is an ideal place to relax and experience the feeling of Aloha. On the afternoon of out visit there was a variety of patrons from newlywed couples to families with young children to parties of friends.

We stayed at the Westin Hapuna Beach resort, which runs a free evening dining shuttle to Mauna Kea. We had heard the Copper Bar was a great place to eat, but more casual (and less expensive) than Mauna Kea's Manta restaurant. We were not disappointed! I had the Seared Hokkaido Scallops, which were huge and had a delicate smoky/grilled flavor, enhanced by a dab of zesty pesto on each. The sides were a bacon risotto - a bit salty, but with a perfectly creamy texture, and sauteed haricots verts (thin green beans). My husband's Hearts of Palm salad was super fresh (like we'd just picked it from our own garden), with feta and citrus, and grilled chicken added. We finished with a shared flourless chocolate cake (gluten-free!) served with a shot of White Chocolate Kahlua and a passionfruit coulis. Great combination of flavors. Very satisfying meal in a relaxed setting. The bar also featured a guitarist and a solo dancer doing interpretations of the songs (although we couldn't see them well from our spot).

I was staying at neighboring Hapuna Prince and this quickly became my spot for when my wife and kid napped in the afternoon. Nice cool bar for when you need a break from the pool or surf. Really enjoyed my time here.
