Table for two facing the sunset,
Table for two facing the sunset, outdoor seats, no kids. Tables spaced apart so you feel like it is just you and your spouse. Service was outstanding! Food was superior, although we ate too much! Great wine selection and you can't beat the sunset!

Best spot in Kona!
THis place was outstanding, awesome food, fantastic service and the view and environment is just so peaceful, and the best clam chowder I've had to date. Whenever you are the big Island of Hawaii this place is a must.

We went for dinner our last
We went for dinner our last night in Hawaii. We timed it so we could watch the sunset and were given an outdoor table which was very nice. Our server, Margaret, was very nice, knowledgeable, and capable. The restaurant seemed understaffed as she had too many tables to cover. We enjoyed our entrees but the dessert - a chocolate volcano cake that required 15 minutes - was a complete failure. There was no molten chocolate - it was cooked too long. the banana creme brulee was similarly disappointing, chunky and bland. The wine list is incredibly overpriced but there are excellent cocktails from which to choose.

Our server was friendly but
Our server was friendly but a bit slow with getting food out and checking back with us. She seemed busy the entire time, i think they just had too many tables for her to adequately give close attention too. Nice time though, food was good. Great view and sounds of the crashing ocean.

Mahalo, Don the Beachcomber!
I have been visiting Kailua-Kona for 25 years, and always make a point of dining at Don the Beachcomber at the Royal Kona Resort. It is one of my favorite places on Hawaii Island! The food is excellent, the service is top notch and the ambiance (scenery) is truly amazing. Even better, the cost for all this aloha is quite reasonable for Big Island dining.
As a added bonus, Don the Beachcomber sells on of the very best Mai Tais to be found in Hawaii. Try to get there for Happy Hour. I can assure you that you will be "happy" after a couple of their Mai Tais!!! Not to worry, just walk across the walkway into the restaurant and have a wonderful meal. The seafood entrees are very good, as well as the prime rib.

Great Hawaii Experience
This was our first visit to Kona. We made reservations on Open table a few weeks prior. We arrived early just to check in just in case they were crowded. When we arrived they were not crowded, and they had our table already set for us. It was beautiful. We had a beautiful ocean view table the weather was great the view was amazing.. Our waitress was great. the food was great.. Will i go again uh-yeah!!!!.. thanks for a great experience.

Dinner at Don the Beachcombers
Wonderful ocean setting with comfortable seating , beautiful sunset, excellent drinks and pupus, and service was very friendly and attentive. Several of the entrees were just average ( the Thursday special prime rib) but others were excellent .Prices a little steep, but good for a special occasion. They provided a special dessert for our anniversary.

We could not belive this place!!
I called and asked for something special for a birthday and an engagement. They went out the their way to cater to our every need. My future wife and I had a very special night with top of the line everything the sun even played along and gave us a great sun set.
This place offers the most spectacular sunsets in all of Kona. Thank you to the staff, cooks and management for a wonderful time.
We recommend the Don Mac and cheese with truffle oil and mushrooms and any of the fish.We went down each night to the cocktail lounge for drinks and appies.
Ask what the happy hour specials are to avoid expense. Loved it.
