It’s a ways out from the resort areas and frequented mostly with locals. On this particular night, the kitchen was extremely slow. We eat there once on every visit, 4 times a year. It’s generally a little long for the food to be prepared, but on this night it was way too slow. Perhaps they were short handed.

The bill included an unannounced surcharge for using a credit card. Other that that...the service was very good, the food was very good, sitting on the balcony was great.

I had only recently heard of the restaurant after 25 years visiting, and now living on, the island so I didn't know what to expect. The food was wonderful. Such a great change of pace from others in the area. The restaurant is warm and welcoming and you can tell there are a lot of regulars. We had the duck and steak among other things and both were delicious and cooked perfectly. Also, BYOB is a huge plus!

The Mango Cobbler was divine! Lovely people. Would give it another chance, might have just been an off night as they were quite busy.

The restaurant was pretty busy and was a little noisy that night. We still had an excellent time. This is my favorite restaurant in the Kona area. I definitely would recommend.

Food cooked perfectly, the best vegetable medley out there as a side, and beautifully presented. They’ve expanded their menu, too, which is a welcome plus. It remains at the top of our list for elegant casual dining.

We returned to the island and went on our search to find it again. We did! It is as wonderful as we remembered. It was about an hour drive from our resort and certainly worth the drive. It’s a hidden jewel that is worth seeking out! So nice and friendly and the food is fabulous! Don’t forget to order dessert! The mango cobbler is fabulous, but everything looked great!

Three of us ordered the fresh fish, which was Ono, with a couple of different preparations. It was outstanding. The restaurant was very busy when we arrived for our reservation, but we were seated right away. Service from the Wait Staff was a little slow getting started, but you could tell they were just a bit short-handed. Overall it was a very pleasant experience!

We took some friends who had not been there before, and it was a big hit (for them...we already knew ;-) ). Ahi Katsu, Cioppino Fisherman's Stew, Mahi-Mahi in the special mango sauce and lamp chops (best on the Big Island); Warm lava flow (ala mode) and Bread Pudding (ala mode). Looking forward to our next trip there!! Mahalo Bob and Zeze!

They were attentive and very personable; just busy. Be sure to look at the special wine lost near the bar. Remarkable wines at great prices! The chicken in pepper corn gravy is maybe the best restaurant dish anywhere.

Well worth the drive but be careful with the parking area behind the restaurant. Very cramped and sloped makes parking challenging for large cars. Enter the restaurant from the parking area and you will find a nice casual restaurant atmosphere. We were promptly greeted and shown to our table. In addition to tables inside the main dining room, there are about five 2-top tables outside on a covered lanai. Fresh fish (catch) of the day is featured and prepared several ways as well as other dishes. We ordered a large bowl of soup (bacon and corn chowder) that we shared, fresh fish (catch) on salad greens and roasted duck breast. The food was delicious and portions were generous. The service staff was courteous and took care of our needs throughout our visit. If you have transportation and are looking for great food served in a casual local setting, we highly recommend Ke'ei Cafe.
