Papa Kona Restaurant & Bar
Join us for breakfast, lunch, happy hour, or for our fine dining surf-and-turf dinner menu and watch the waves roll in along the spectacular Kona Coast!
Always great service, food & view!
Great steaks and very nice addition to the Kona restaurant scene. The candied brussel sprouts were delicious too.
It was great we were treated so nice and our server Chrystal was awesome. We will be back!
Our server was delightful, the food scrumptious, and what a perfect spot to watch the sunset!!!
LT SMOOTH was amazing. Fun dancing, great lounge menu.
Food was absolutely amazing and the service was impeccable!!! Then on top of that we had an endless view of the ocean!!!😍🤙🏻
Food was good, except baked potato was woefully undercooked, took. Awhile to replace
After booking reservations thru Open Table, when we arrived, we were told that no reservations are accepted on Wednesdays because it's their "live band" night. As a result, we could not dine there at all and were forced to go to a different restaurant. We were not happy!
Awesome location with great atmosphere. Food was delicious and service was wonderful.
We loved our experience at Papa Kona. Great food, great service, and ambiance.
Good food. Ordered a 2nd mule (alcoholic drink) because the 1st was good; the 2nd one was watered down, didn’t have much taste. Waitress made some excuse about it “needing more seltzer” and did not offer a refill, substitute or refund. We ordered 3 mains and a side dish. The side dish never came (and was not on final bill). Carpenters were using power tools 2 tables away, adding a railing to stairs, at 1-2 pm, prime lunch hour in tourist land. So that noise overpowered the sound of waves below the restaurant.
Our first time here was great.
Excellent table with open view of the waterfront and moored cruise ship.
Fresh mahi-mahi was prepared well and a very delicious and tender filet mignon.
The molten lava cake was more like mousse but very delightful.
Great brunch spot in Kona. Right in water. I’d have given it four stars but for the $6 cost of Kona Coffee - with no refills. Sorry; that’s a rip off. Food was excellent; view superb; service friendly even if a bit slow.
The view is beautiful and the food is great. You have an ocean front view to watch spinner dolphins splash about in the water and you can also see whales spout or breach. The restaurant is an excellent way to start your day!!
Shake down run. New restaurant. Management is trying, they were very understanding. Service was good, everyone was Nice and accommodating.
Had a wonderful experience at Christmas breakfast here. Tried dinner, not good but, will try again because, everyone's trying.
This was our last meal before we left Hawaii. The food is amazing. The view is breath taking. Perfect ending to a perfect trip.
No healthy food options, too salty also. BUT the location, literally on the ocean, is wonderful!
Excellent ambiance...my husband did not like the tough ham in the Traditional Eggs Benedict. All five of the rest of us were VERY happy with both food and beverage. Wonderful hollandaise on the Benedicts (we had Traditional, Seared Ahi and Kalua Pig Benedicts...yum).
Avocado toast as others noted was bare... but can’t beat location as long as you don’t have to pay $10 per hour for parking...
Great food and beautiful setting. Very local and fresh food.
Had a wonderful brunch, generous portions. Good bloody Mary's and tasty likikoi margaritas as well as lilikoi mimosas. Beautiful location and great staff. Will definitely visit again!
New restaurant on the ocean in Kailua-Kona. We had a wonderful breakfast last weekend with friends. Everything was top notch - food, service, ambiance, etc. We can hardly wait for them to start serving dinner!
