Manta is the signature restaurant of the iconic Mauna Kea Beach Hotel and has breathtaking views of the Kohala Coast. The menu is a curation of Pacific Rim cuisine with seasonal, local, and sustainably-produced ingredients.
Chef Bryan Nagao has gained formidable reputation in the international food community. He was once described by American media as "the most notable figures in rendering Modern Asian cuisine in the Northern hemisphere". The creativity permeating his cuisine stems from the diversity of his culinary background. Bryan's cuisine is a multi-faceted reflection of his Hawai'i Island birthplace, his Japanese ancestry, and decades spent in the finest restaurants in Hong Kong and Taipei.

    Beautiful setting. We were in no rush. Yet, felt abandoned. And the hotel is in a major renovation. Just not the same magic

    Nice ambience. My heart of palm, beet & goat cheese salad were tasty but his uni tagliatelle appetizer was “oh-no”, and he would not recommend it. He also wasn’t fond of his fresh catch of the day, prepared in a fish bone broth that wasn’t worth the hype, while my kombachi fish entree, prepared in a kind of fricasee style with Meyer lemons, capers and chopped tomatoes, was a winner. I passed on dessert, but he went for the crème brûlée & coffee, and although the brûlée was good, it wasn’t worth the $22 spent on it.

    Beautiful sunset views! Great food! Prices are high but I felt it was very appropriate for the caliber of food we received.

    While I wanted to believe it was just that I didn't like the preparation, after trying multiple dinners and appetizers, the food just isn't good. The best were the sashimi and maca crusted fish and lamb. The bad were the hamachi crudo (not sure how you screw that up) and the fresh catch. Desserts were good. Drinks were just OK. View was stunning and service (which I'd worried most about from reviews) was good, no complaints. Would not recommend - insanely expensive and left hungry from not finishing food.
