This was our favorite meal on the island. Service was fantastic and the entire experience was so pleasant. The food was wonderful- especially the salads and appetizers, also the scallop and shrimp dish. Drinks were excellent.

ULU is one of my all time favorites. The food is always spot on. The location and setting can’t be beat. The service is usually outstanding, although I did have one minor beef this time. The staff would stop and socialize with all the tables that were adults only, but if there were kids at your table - especially a majority, they were polite and professional, but not talkative.

About the restaurant
In 1995 with a vision to open a small family "Coffee Cafe" Owner Bob Miyashiro and his wife Gina open the original Keei Cafe in a old former Fish Market in Honaunau, Hawaii on the Big Island. Finally after borrowing enough from their father, Brothers Bob and Dennis along with Sister Joyce the new Keei Cafe was Born in Hokukano. Again with the Brazilian touch for food friendly colors and using local woods, Gina helped create the decor that surrounds the "New" Keei Cafe at Hokukano. Opened in early 2005, the new Cafe features local artist painting and carvings on the walls. Koa table help make the Cafe have a warm and welcome feel perfect for families or guests looking for a resort type meal with a upcounty price. Family owned and operated with the additon of Gina's sister and Brother in Law, Chef Zeze and Batista, in the kitchen to use the freshes local ingredients to prepare creavtive and and delicious menu items with nightly specials. Please come to experience the flavors!

It was the perfect date for my girlfriend and I. They exceeded my expectations by allowing me to order the special fish trio with a ribeye. So so delicious. I would definitely recommend this place who’s looking for something special/romantic. We look forward to coming back next year , Mahalo 🌺🤘❤️🤙🐢

The Beach House was very romantic on the edge of the restaurant near the sand. Live Hawaiian music playing and we had the poached pear salad and lobster bisque. Both amazing. I loved the ube rolls and honey salted butter. The special was swordfish and I had the filet. Perfection!

This is a consistently excellent and creative restaurant, definitely worth a trip to the Village. The kitchen executes Italian staples flawlessly, and comes up with specials that sound mind-blowing (we didn’t try). And the wait staff was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. I will be back!
