We were hungry after a long flight to the big island. As we approached our hotel, we discovered Fish Hopper and stopped in for a late lunch. The view was a great way to relax. The food didn't disappoint. Fast and attentive service.

Lovely venue overlooking Kona bay. Food is well presented with tasty flavors. Different fish choices depending on fresh catch.

Kind of expensive and surprised when plates arrived. Good quality on the fish but very scarce. Been few feet away in Qui....and completely the opposite.

Fishhopper is great especially for vets. If they know you're a vet, you will get a complimentary appetizer and dessert. Their dessert chef is marvelous. I especially like the key lime mango cheesecake.

Ocean right across the street, what a view! I ordered the coconut prawns with habit(white fish) which both were delicious, just wish there were more prawns. Hubby had the parmesan crusted mahi which he said was very tasty.

My husband and I recently vacationed in Kona for 5 nights. We ate at The Fish Hopper three times during our stay on the island, because we kept wanting to try something new from the menu. The food, ambience and service were all top notch...More

Yes. There is a road behind all the restaurant and shops. You can find parking in all the lots that feed the shopping. If one is full just go down the street a little. The downtown Kona area is very compact, so walking... More
