    Relaxing evening with the waves crashing next to you. Food was excellent service was more like a bar setting. The host was very personable and acknowledged our special evening. The mix drinks were very weak.

    Local favorite ocean side with sunset and cool glass of something tasty in hand. Well that is if you have an attentive bar staff. There was only one person on this night tending the bar-our drink service was a bit underwhelming -at the very long wait, but hurriedly too sweet tequila mixed combos. We managed to enjoy our food anyway! Server /and cooks were prompt w the food!

    We sat right next to the ocean. Everyone was cheering on the surfers and boogie boarders who were basically right in front of us. The atmosphere was so positive. It was so much fun. We have never had such an amazing view from our table! Would highly recommend to anyone. Friendly, courteous staff. Food was very good.

    The food at Magics is consistently good! Well cooked, interesting menu, with specials that change often. It's clear that the chef likes what they do, and wants to share their love of food with the customers. The wait staff is always pleasant, accommodating (as best they can on the beginning of a Friday night!), and location can't be beat. As residents, this is one of our favorite places to eat! Given that all the tables and the bar well full, others know this is a place to check out when visiting Kona. Make a reservation, and you won't be disappointed.

    Great friendly greeting from Maddie upon entering the restaurant. Seated in the outdoor lanai area overlooking the Magic Sands Beach; amazing view. I ate am the Thursday lunch special Goonies Grinder and it was spectacular. Pork belly was fried excellently the baguette and greens along with the truffle sauce was a great combination. Definitely will be back.

    The restaurant is lovely and the food is very good. I would say maybe go there because my party got there about 45 minutes before our reservation time. Although the first person there thought they had checked in and the hostess staff came by and asked us if we were checked in at one point when I asked if they had us checked in they did not seem to have us actually checked in. This was after standing in their lobby for about 20 minutes or so at this point. Many parties without reservations had come in after us and were being seated. Which is why I asked. I also asked if we could sit at the empty bar seats and was told no by two of the three hostesses. Although people who came in after us simply walked up and sat at the bar. Finally after 45 minutes at the reservation time they sat us at a table that had been empty the entire 45 minutes we were standing in their lobby. Not a great experience and although I like the restaurant and the food I would be reluctant to go back or recommend them to anyone.
