    Food was amazing and a great selection to choose from..fresh fish, ribs and steak, pasta, burgers and salads. The fresh fish selection and preparation are excellent. I had the Risotto with fresh Monchong. Service was quick and friendly and attentive. The dessert tray is decadent,;;; especially the Kona Coffee Cheesecake. Excellent bar, too! And the views of Kailua bay are a bonus. Highly recommend the Kona Fish Hopper for food and ambiance!

    The Guacamole appetizer was a pleasant surprise. Very tasty and a good portion. I had the fish tacos. Fish was Mahi Mahi. A bit dry and could have used more sauce. The shells were soft, but fell apart. My wife had the Caesar’s salad. Nothing special. She got the Ginger Miso dressing which was excellent. Mahi Mahi was added, but nothing to rave about. Atmosphere and service were great. I would recommend it, but maybe get a different fish than the Mahi Mahi. Not much flavor to it.

    As always, Island Lava Java remains our favorite Kailua spot. Great service. Wonderful staff. Food that never disappoints. And a cool island vibe.

Discover Kailua-Kona

Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, is known for its white sand beaches and beautiful weather. Most days of the year are sunny and dry because it is on the leeward side of the island. This dry, sunny weather is ideal for visiting the open bars that line the streets near the beaches. Kailua-Kona's signature Kona coffee is grown locally, and early risers will see that having a cup of joe is one of the most popular things to do early in the day. The Kailua-Kona area was originally a sleepy fishing village, and seafood continues to be the most popular type of cuisine. You'll also find opportunities to attend a traditional Hawaiian luau, featuring roasted pork, pineapple and plenty of alcohol. The local specialty, Mai-Tai, and handcrafted ales are also brewed right on the island.
