Excellent food. Service seemed a bit overwhelmed at times but to be fair it was Friday night with both reserved seating and open seating in the bar. We had a group of 8 and everyone had a good time.

We visited this week to see the sunset and we're lucky to get a few seats in the car area right away. (Table seats were about an hour wait around sunset). The sunset views are amazing and the restaurant is a perfect beach bar. We ordered the Tater Tots, a burger and the garlic shrimp plus drinks. The servers were... More

Dig your toes in the sand as you enjoy happy hour at the LavaLava. The service was friendly and prompt, the cocktails delicious and the pupus (appetizers) very yummy. Of course, the setting is the best part of this visit, facing out onto the ocean at A beach at Waikola. Enjoy!

One of our new favorites. Loved walking down the beach to the restaurant from our condo at Kolea. Food was good, great tofu (not always easy to do), plus lots of great meat and seafood. Fun tropical drinks; can do without alcohol for kids. We went there twice this last visit but will definitely go back on our next visit.... More

We (4 of us) got a table on the beach. I was pretty happy with that. It was super busy 5:45pm. Make a reservation - we did. I was very happy with my meal. My ahi sashimi was a bit on the warm side but okay. Hook line and sinker and Simple Choice - perfect choices - soooo yummy. My... More

Great place to eat and wonderful to see the sunset in the evening. Make sure you make reservations as this place books fast and is popular. If you go early you can then walk the beach afterwards. It does close at 7pm so watch your timing. There is also lounges on the beach just to sit on and watch the... More

The food at the place is good but the ambience is great, so long as you are not looking for a quiet place. Live music was good, beer selection and bar were great.

Location is awesome. We literally sat on a padded chair on the sand. We watched sea turtles literally 40 feet from us. On to the service. It was mostly poor; inline with the other reviews I saw. 11 minutes before a waitress said hello ( I timed it) 3 more minutes before we received water, etc. Not to belabor the... More

We got side tracked and ended up at the restaurant. Lovely setting on the beach, but at night you can't see it. Food was good but once the waiter got a giant party he forgot about us. My 10 year old had a quesadilla off the kids menu. I had a salad, ho hum, and the pork rib starter. It... More
