Perfect place to watch as the sun sets over Kona. Very peaceful, unless there is torrential rain. Started with the Kahuna Don's Island Breeze Salad. So fresh and yummy. Mixed greens topped papaya, mango, pineapple, avocado and roasted pecans. The lilikoi vinaigrette is so delightful....More

Great bar location. Perfect for watching the sunset. Bar is located adjacent to where they have a luau on Tues & Fri. You can see the dancers and hear the music from the bar. We had second mai tai and a free show.

Yep, this is the place. If you want an original recipe Mai Tai, you need to have it made here. They invented it. Awesome! I'd recommend it.

The view is fabulous. The bar is open to the public. Happy hour prices are somewhat reasonable but drinks otherwise are very expensive. The service was terrible and we eventually got our drinks from the bartender to avoid waiting even longer. Worth experiencing once for...More
