Description: 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!

Great food! We ordered the Sashimi for an appetizer. It was my first time trying it and I’m not normally a raw fish kinda guy, but my wife convinced me and it was really good! I also ordered the roasted duck, which came with mashed potatoes and a vegetable medley in a red wine sauce and that was absolutely outstanding. Portions weren’t huge, which gave us enough room for dessert. Finished off with some delicious chocolate cheesecake. As I said in the title, it’s a bit expensive so if you’re looking to spend some money on a good meal and experience, you won’t go wrong here.

This restaurant is a hidden gem. The parking is up the hill in the back and the restaurant decor is tastefully done. The food was excellent.

Off the beaten track, tucked away upstairs in a small complex is a little gem. The restaurant actually opens up with a balcony from which you can see the water in the distance. It is nicely decorated and there was live, local music which added to the ambiance. The food was delicious and the serving sizes were generous. When the menu offered "half a chicken" - it was actually half a chicken (unlike a restaurant in Kona where half a chicken meant one chicken and a whole chicken actually meant 2 breasts???" The catch of the day was well seasoned and very fresh - served with potatoes and lots of vegetables. The prices were very reasonable.
