Our 5:00 reservation for Valentine’s Day began promptly at 5:00. Several others had the same thought and were there at opening! The restaurant was built BY the owners, long time Hawaiian residents! It’s family run and very homey atmosphere. Because several couples sat down at the same time, there was a little bit of delay in having the waitress take our order. It may have been better if she got their drinks only first. Then ours. Then go back to them to get their dinner and / or appetizer orders. We did have water but no bread or anything else! There’s usually live music but the band was going to some other place on Valentines’ night... All in all it’s close by Kealakekua and Captain Cook, has lanai seating, is beautiful inside and the food was excellent! I ate way too much! Here there are plenty of fish options and tofu dishes for vegetarians/ vegans. My kinda place! There were still lots of meat and poultry offerings to choose from also! The dessert menu is extensive and great too! More

Nick and Mike are awesome! Each feeds off the other and it works. Have a severe allergy to garlic and Nick fixed a lovely duck and vegetable risotto sans any Garlic. It was so so good and true to his word had no problems. Husband’s favorite spot to eat. Always a special. Need to bring your own libations. More

Fusion / Eclectic | Kailua-Kona, Hawaii / Big Island

Buffet had a wide variety of foods from salads to seafood and prime rib. All was prepared to perfection. Cocktails were excellent and well made. Desserts also had a wide variety. Wait staff was attentive and very friendly. Very knowledgable about local events and places. We went early evening so staff did have some extra time to talk story which made the night perfect. I would not recommend this to anyone who has a small appetite. You won't be able to eat enough for the price. If you love to eat, this is a wonderful place to do it. Windows open to the air and right on the beach next to the pier. Loved it! Will go again I am sure. More
