Where To Eat Here

~ Luaus ~

South Kohala and Kona districts have many restaurants. The most renowned – and the most exclusive, high end restaurants – are in the Kohala Coast and Kona Coast hotels.

Luaus:  we’ve tried a few.  In our humble opinion, the Mauna Kea Hotel’s luau has the best food of all the luaus (the food was a higher quality than others we tried). The show itself is small, not very elaborate (more intimate) and charming…the setting is on the hotel lawn….you can glimpse the sun setting as the show starts. The atmosphere at the Mauna Kea is intimate and relaxed.
You can see more flashy luaus at a few of the other hotels with fire eaters, etc. but no other (in our opinion) beats the Mauna Kea’s food quality. At the Marriott the show and the food is standard.  The King Kam Hotel’s  Island Breeze luau is standard  (the location of the luau is not nice –again, it’s our opinion).  The Kona Village luau has a very nice setting in the Village…nice stage set up ….and the food quality was just a little  above the others – the same for the Hilton Waikoloa’s luau;  The Sheraton’s luau show is flashy (fire eaters and all)…the food is standard luau quality.
