We went here because it was close to our hotel and was recommended by someone from the hotel. We went at lunchtime and were only 1 of about 4 families in the whole place.

Dinner menu has a number of good local selections. My wife's New York strip was cooked properly. Kalbi ribs were tasty and well seasoned. We will be returning.

Basic menu, but good food. Wait staff very friendly. Great for breakfast; particularly if you are staying at the botel.

Coconut Grill is a little pricey but the food is good. I had the crab cakes which were excellent. Service was good too.

The menu has a wide variety of choices. The service is good, as is the food. Try the French Onion soup. So ono! Our favorite restaurant in Hilo.

The waffles (strawberry and banana cinnamon ) are good for breakfast and so was the bacon and eggs. The coconut syrup was delicious!

Not a bad choice for lunch. Located across from pond so a decent view for a diner The chicken katsu could easily serve two people. Kahuna burger was tasty. The salad bar for $4.95 was probably not worth it.
