We got tired of the glitzy overpriced tourist restaurants on the main drag of Kailua-Kona. This Manago Restaurant that is a part of a very old historical hotel was a blast to the past. The sign on the wall says it is Hawaii’s oldest restaurant...More

Coffee was kinda weak, and the menu looked ok, so we went somewhere else instead. Place is a cool landmark though, and several of our friends love eating here.

A busy restaurant on Friday night. The locals came to celebrate and enjoy typical Hawaiian food. The hotel houses the oldest restaurant on the island (100 years). It certainly has character. The restaurant felt like an old English church hall. In fact it was very...More

I agree with the previous writer. Food and drinks are a bargain. The wine selection is very limited. Their menu is actually written on a blackboard, not printed. Two of us had lunch and drinks for $20.
