We had appetizers at the bar. Restaurant is quite busy. We walked over on the beach from the Marriott. Beautiful location.

Says it's a club, but it's a nice restaurant/bar right on the beach. Best chowder I've ever had. Happy hour prices are good, but main meals and pretty expensive. Very windy at sunset, so was a bit chilly. Nice views, good food. Drinks were ok, nothing special. Very busy place but lots of staff. Games are in the sand if... More

We booked our table at sunset. It was kind of cloudy, so the sunset was not that great. However, the location was awesome. Our table was right on the beach so my son could play on the beach while we waited for our food. The food was great and the service was good. There was also a live music and... More

Loved Lava Lava Beach club. Went right before sunset for dinner and enjoyed a wonderful guitar player with a Hawaiian dancer as we ate. The view is incredible the food very good (my dinner was served in half a pineapple - my husband was so jealous) and the drinks cold! Place gets crowded, so make a reservation!

We were here four years ago and looking forward to another visit, but unfortunately this restaurant has gone downhill. The meal I ordered was lukewarm and the batter on the fish and chips was soggy. We had far better food served at the "Island Fish and Chips" in Kings' shopping mall for half the price. Sorry Lava Lava, you may... More

Went to this club our first night and this is where I fell in love with MaiTai's. Nothing beats the sunset and MaiTai's at happy hour. Heaven!

They have a wide range of good food choices, very good service, outdoor tables and a very good wine list. Have pizza or seafood. I recommend this place!

We enjoyed Lava Lava very much. It is situated right on the beach with excellent service, food and cocktails. Just the right place to be after a day out in the island. The parking lot the one away from the restaurant after sunset is very dark so make sure you have a flash light to guide you close to the... More

Great spot for a good restaurant with great service and food but not at this time. Things are not quite on the mark, a little off. They are trying for casual too hard so it effects their service. For example I asked for a pepper mill, nothing unusual from a restaurant with this pretense, but I told by the manager... More
