    Honestly the best breakfast I’ve ever had, and I’m a big boy so I don’t say that easily. The food was out of this world and the service to match. We are here several times while visiting the big island, it was so good we could not try anything else.

    Dined on May 14, 2024
    Live music, an ocean view, amazing service and mouthwatering dishes - Honu's is my new favorite restaurant for dinner in Kona! I have dined here twice for dinner and several times for breakfast. Dinner: I love the ambiance of the live music, fire pits and tiki torches. The restaurant is right by the beach and offers a beautiful view of Kamakahonu - a historical landmark and King Kamehameha the Great's final home. We tried the crispy snapper, braised ribs and chicken pasta - they were all amazing! The price point here is amazing too, I was surprised to see dinner dishes here less expensive than other Kona restaurants that lack ambiance and don't even have an ocean view. The portions are HUGE. I had the dessert for the month of May - Surinam Cherry Cobbler - It was the perfect balance of sweetness and tart. I wish it was on the menu all year! IT WAS SOOOOO GOOD! Breakfast: They have an affordable all you can eat breakfast buffet around $25 which again - is a better deal than other restaurants in Kona. There is also an Ala-carte menu with a savory loco moko and my fave - the kalua pork eggs Benedict. YUMMMM
