A much simpler but more creative menu under the new ownership that better complements the casual beachside location.

This is a great place to eat. The location overlooking Magic Sand beach is superb, however it is always busy, always noisy and the service can be somewhat less than attentive if the restaurant is full or staffing is low. Food is dependably excellent, although the menu doesn't change much. Excellent bar and wine list. Make a reservation or you are likely to have to wait. Book 1/2 hour before sunset and relax and enjoy one of the most beautiful sunsets in Hawaii.

Felisha catered to our every need as we sat outside during sunset watching the beach goers next door. I highly recommend the Wicked Wahine. It was a “magical” spot to spend our last day on vacation!

We had a wonderful ladies’ lunch at Magic’s today. The service was top-notch—friendly and attentive, and the food so delicious. I had the Kona Mushroom pasta. Wonderful! A little pricy but a huge serving and fantastic fresh and innovative ingredients. And the view!!!!

The service was wonderful. Some of the food, like the Brussel sprouts and Caesar was amazing as well. The mushroom pasta was so so but nothing special. However the fish and chips was terrible. The first order has to be sent back because it was so overdone it was practically burned. The 2nd order was not much better. It was super dry and cooling be finished because it was like eating leather. We had ordered a takeout order of it as well and that order was also miserably dry. Overall, way overpriced for food that was not consistently good throughout the whole menu. Very disappointed since this place was recommended to us

There’s a reason they call this place Magics. The ambiance, service, food, and gorgeous view make for a magical Kona sunset. We dined on the wings, fish and chips, beet poke, pork belly with kimchi fried rice, and lava cake with coffee ice cream. Thank you Magics for welcoming us and sharing some island love with our family.

Food was really bad. Mushroom Flatbread was super bland and they destroyed the Ono Fish Tacos. We were seated at a plastic costco table so pretty low on the ambience. I felt sorry for our server who tried but was set up for failure by the kitchen. So many better choices in Kona.

Having been here in the late 90’s early 2000, it was quite different. I miss the intimacy and charm of what was! Very noisy. Food was good. Service good. Atmosphere lacked old Kona sophistication of days gone by. So many new restaurants here that compete with excellent food. would be nice to have the intimate atmosphere back. Wait staff more polished. Chairs & tables very uncomfortable. Oh well

We didn't know what many of the ingredients on the menu were so we had a hamburger and fish and chips, I guess the place is organic or something. They were over priced for what we got. We were placed at a table by the beach (seems okay right?) but we were burning up. They did move us. The slaw with the fish was spicy as in hot spicy. And we had to fight the birds off our table as they were trying to eat our food. We don't plan to go back.

First time to this restaurant and we loved it! The setting is terrific…. And we had a beautiful sunset!

Great table on the patio… Felicia is a terrific server and personable … the macadamia nut hummus is delicious. The fish tacos were awesome as was the hamburger.

We would definitely go back again!

What a surprise!!! We reluctantly went to Magic’s, hungry & with low expectations. Wow! What a surprise! Beautiful koa woos throughout, fabulous views, great food & amazing service (thanks Megan!). Best ono (fish) & the uku (fried breadfruit) was fantastic! Definitely will repeat!!

I haven’t dined there in maybe 6 months so it was good to revisit for lunch with a friend. We got a good seat on the front lanai and got to chat and eat without a lot of other people around. I love it!

The location is unbeatable, watching people enjoy Magic Sands Beach and basking in the sun. The service was great from start to finish and our waitress was friendly, helpful and prompt. The food was unique, delicious and artfully prepared with great attention to detail. The prices are a bit high, as to be expected during the Covid era, and due to location and demand. Will definitely return to see what unique options will be available for brunch, and to try something from the regular menu.
