Place was packed and we did not have a reservation, so we were lucky to get a seat at the bar. The bar tender who served us was great. I had the macadamia nut crusted hawaiian makejiki my wife had the hibachi grilled salmon. Both dishes were very tasty and cooked perfectly! Great place to dine, so book in advance.

This was a nice find for dinner. It is pricey, the service was very good and the food was quite good.

Extraordinarily expensive chain restaurant. That said, the food was excellent and service good. Ambiance "0". Fancy place in a mall. You can do better.

Excellent food but quite noisy. It's not on the ocean but has a view of a small lake. Good service and not quite as expensive as other fine dining on the Big Island.

We had a very nice meal here and really enjoyed the Monchong and Mahi Mahi. We called because we were running late due to flight delays and they graciously held our table for us. This was hands down our best meal while on the island.

We ate here in Waikaloa, and at Roy's in Honolulu. Both were outstanding, fresh, tasteful, beautiful combinations of food I would've never thought of nor put together unless already on an amazing menu.

Roys never disappoints, the food is consistent, the service is good and the wine list has a wide variety. We like it when we are at the Waikoloa Bach Resort.

We enjoyed a nice quiet table in Roy's the other night. That was not a minor issue, and we had to ask the hostess to move us from the table she tried to take us first. The overall noise level was very high. But once we were happy we had great food as usual . Recommend reservations, which they work... More

If you go to Roy's I highly recommend the prix fixe menu which includes an appetizer sampler plate, a choice of entrees, and a choice of dessert. On the appetizer plate, there was a bbq beef rib, spicy ahi sushi, a spring roll and seasoned bean sprouts. Great way to taste some of the offerings of appetizer. For the entrée,... More

This was our second night here. We were blown away by the incredible food and the impeccable service on our first night here. So, we are here a second time. I can not stress enough how much this experience made our vacation. If you haven't experienced Roy's, run don't walk, you'll thank me later.
