Magics was what we were looking for: a nice dinner on the water at sunset. It was made even more exciting by the big surf running and a tropical downpour. We had a super dinner with excellent service. We'll be back1

Great food. Amazing ocean and sunset views. Our server was very nice but very scattered. She forgot to put in our appetizer order and after we paid she came back and tried to give us our bill a second time.

The staff were pleasant and the service was good. However, we both had the fish taco dinner. It consisted of 2 flour tacos with two small pieces of dry fish and 2 small scoops of coconut rice. Not much food for $21 per plate!

Our waiter Jason was great. Offered suggestions on drinks and meals. Food was excellent. Our apps were shrimp skillet, pork belly skillet and Brussel sprouts which all were great. My wife had the chowder and my son had the fish and chips and both loved them. I had the fish tacos and would recommend them to anyone.
Great location on the water. Waves were fantastic to watch as well as the individuals in surf and body boards.

The setting is iconic Hawaii, the service is friendly and intelligent and the food is a delicious casual local fare. Visiting? Great spot. Have guests visiting? Great spot. The two of us make this a regular lunch stop and the overall experience can’t be beat.

Mushroom pasta was fabulous,with Grilled Ono had enough for leftovers . I had the Blackened Ahi Steak which was scrumptous. We shared a White Sands Wedge Salad for starters and a glass of Matus Savignon Blanc. Then Au Bon Climat Pinot Noir with the dinner. The setting was beautiful and seated outside with ocean views and sunset,the surf was very high which was pretty spectacular. Our waitress Felicia was super friendly and also efficient,not rushing us which was great. Nice place and away from the busy town was a plus too.

The breadfruit wedges were very tasty and crispy, cooked to perfection!

The fish chowder was also very good and had perfect flavor

The creme brulet was excellent and good sized

The fried banana bread with Tahitian ice cream was a new treat we haven’t had yet and was very food, natural flavors came through

I live in Kona and Magic’s Beach Grill is my favorite restaurant. The beach side tables provide an amazing view of all the keki trying to bodyboard & yellow tang fish in the ocean. Magic’s food is amazing and I love that the brunch menu changes from week to week. Dirty ulu fries is a must, they are “”broke da mout” ono!

Fantastic location and views. Glad to see how busy things are...but with that comes, at times, slow service. Our pre-dinner cocktails arrived with the entree basically. Bar service has tended to be slow.The fish tacos and pork belly dish were both very delicious! Great place to dine with friends.

One of our favorite places in Kona. Despite being in a touristy location, the food is always great and the service warm. We love the incorporation of ulu (breadfruit) in the menu. Don’t miss it!

The seafood chowder tasted homemade in the best possible way and might have been the best seafood chowder I have had. The umami aoli that came with ulu fries was out of this world. The house made specialty soda was delicious. I would definitely eat here again tomorrow.

Great food. Was there during Magic hours and got discount on pupus. The dirty ulu and Brussels were both awesome, as was the farmers salad, which changes weekly. Our server Jason was attentive and delightful. Perfect meal experience.

We arrived on time for our 5:30 reservations and were seated within 10 minutes. The table we were given was not very well placed (back away from the railing, next to the wall, by the kitchen door) but it was on the patio which we had requested. Our Caesar salad was very tasty; our ono fish and chips were not (the fish was over cooked, fries were soggy and barely warm). Our draft beers were slightly flat (local Kona brewing IPA). We enjoyed the view of the busy beach and the pleasant breezes. Go for the ambiance, not for the food.
