We ate breakfast on the outside deck next to the ocean. What a great way to start the day! I thought the menu selections were a bit unusual, but they did have a "traditional" breakfast of eggs, potatoes and toast that was great. I asked for rye bread, but they only had sourdough, which I don't like, so they offered to substitute a muffin for the toast, which was delicious. Service was friendly and efficient. A little more expensive than a typical breakfast restaurant.

The staff aren’t friendly and the drinks aren’t good - but, I came back here twice for the large amount of covered open air seating. They allowed us to spread out and paint and take over their board room that overlooked the ocean for hours. Granted, no one helped us and were annoyed when we spoke to them - but, we got a heavy dose of motivation thanks to the views and fresh air.

We went here for dinner on the recommendation of our host, and returned for another dinner because we loved it so much! You can sit right on their covered veranda by the shore and watch the sunset on the water, framed by palm trees. Wait staff is friendly and the atmosphere is relaxed. Our favourite dish was their cioppino, which was the best I've ever had. Drinks are good, and portions are generous ... but go here because you like good food and leave the tourist traps behind. Enjoy!

My friends and I ate lunch, had cocktails and just chilled out here. Great place! Friendly staff, wonderful view and tasty food! You can sit down below under the roof or up top under the beautiful sky. Will definitely return here on my next trip over to the Big Island!

My wife and I are at this restaurant three times during our 5 days in Kona. Breakfast was very good. I particularly enjoyed the Puna Kine Eggs Benedict, served on homemade bread with spinach. Their side orders of fruits change daily depending on availability, but is always super fresh. The atmosphere is nice, with lots of tables on a porch, right on the water. Would highly recommend!
