Good food, good service, and very reasonable prices! We were happy this place exists after checking the few other options around the park!

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 enjoyed our food but it was a very expensive pizza place. Would probably not return. Seemed popular.

Although the food was decent and reasonably priced, we cannot recommend this restaurant to tourists unless they want to spend their vacation endlessly waiting for a burger. We arrived around 6 on a Friday night and stood waiting to be seated for 20 minutes even...More

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.
