We are locals and Four Seasons dining is usually for special occasions. We had a wonderful meal at Beach Tree, again. This time it was for Father’s Day. Our server, Tyger, was full of personality and attentiveness.

Start your morning at this open-air eatery overlooking the pool and Great Lawn with Kona coffee and an island-inspired breakfast spread. From lunch to dinner, enjoy a variety of pizzas, fresh vegetables from nearby farms for lunch or locally-caught fresh catch served family style. Let Hālani master chefs serve up the best the island has to offer all day before unwinding with a signature Mai Tai at Hā Bar & Grill for the best views of sunset.

We were a table of six. Friendly staff and quick service. I ordered a very tasty and strong Mai Tai. My pork chop with a side of mushrooms was out of the world. Definitely the best dinner on visit…beating Ula at the four seasons.

Live music, an ocean view, amazing service and mouthwatering dishes - Honu's is my new favorite restaurant for dinner in Kona! I have dined here twice for dinner and several times for breakfast. Dinner: I love the ambiance of the live music, fire pits and tiki torches. The restaurant is right by the beach and offers a beautiful view of Kamakahonu - a historical landmark and King Kamehameha the Great's final home. We tried the crispy snapper, braised ribs and chicken pasta - they were all amazing! The price point here is amazing too, I was surprised to see dinner dishes here less expensive than other Kona restaurants that lack ambiance and don't even have an ocean view. The portions are HUGE. I had the dessert for the month of May - Surinam Cherry Cobbler - It was the perfect balance of sweetness and tart. I wish it was on the menu all year! IT WAS SOOOOO GOOD! Breakfast: They have an affordable all you can eat breakfast buffet around $25 which again - is a better deal than other restaurants in Kona. There is also an Ala-carte menu with a savory loco moko and my fave - the kalua pork eggs Benedict. YUMMMM

Thank you for a great dinner experiance. This is the first time we have been to the monthly Prime Rib and Seafood Buffet. Service from the start was impeccable. Our host was gracious and received us beautifully. The food was fresh and delicious! Lots of offerings and really great selections. The only drawback was the flies. We understand that the open air and outside dinning is a factor, and there were fans around each serving food areas to help “swish” the flies away, but more strategies to keeping the flies away needs an upgrade. Your servers and support staff are excellent and provide a wonderful and knowledgable amount of service to each table and guest. We had a great experiance all around. Thank you again.

The food is delicious, though a bit pricey (isn’t everything these days?). Our server, Helen Goodnight, was the best! She was able to describe the preparations of all the dishes to help us decide what to order, then checked in regularly to ensure everything was to our liking. She also got us our bill quickly so we could settle up and continue our Hawaiian adventure. We will ask to be seated at her tables going forward. Thank you, Helen!
