Service is courteous and attentive. Food is good, although it didn’t stand out. We came here because it was cheaper than the Volcano House. Not many parking spots available but there are lots of tables in the restaurant.

We had the ABC and the Turkey burger, both were good and tasty. The curly fries were a little over fried (hard and dry), the added coleslaw was great! Service was good, the place itself was a bit cold (please close the windows!) for us...More

We loved this place - live music, tasty classic sandwiches and rice plates, delicious smoothies and milk shakes, and yummy homemade desserts. Definitely worth the stop!

Our family unfortunately chose to eat here - $8 for a not quite cooked small baked potato was possibly the best of what we chose.....and the room smelled badly. waitress was friendly.

We enjoyed our dinner. I had the ABC burger (avocado, bacon, cheddar) which was done to perfection, made with local ingredients. Hubby had the ginger terriaki mahimahi with the Portuguese bean soup. All delicious!

Nothing fancy here. We had breakfast here while in Volcano. Only a few tables were occupied. Waitress was attentive and food was okay. Loved hearing the staff in the kitchen laughing and singing. It seems that they enjoy their job and each other.

We had a fabulous breakfast here - ok not the most modern environment or spotlessly clean and as it is in the middle of a rain forest you will always get bugs. If you have had a bad experience why do you go back.

Volcano Lava Rock Cafe is a restaurant. Think you have this mixed up with a B&B.
