Good american cuisine, nothing more! We had the seared Ahi and the Prime Rib. We europeans are not used to drown the fish in sauce, taste was Ok. Prime Rib was excellent! American lodge flair and good service!

The food was delicious and the service was impeccable. I normally shun hotel food. I'm very glad I didn't. I had the antelope medallions and a pureed cream of rice soup with carrots and local peppers (just a taste of spicy). The antelope was cooked...More

The lodge is beautiful. The grounds, birds, and frog sounds are lovely. Room was nice, cozy but only a double bed and very small shower for the high room rate. Very convenient location to the part.

This is a great place to eat breakfast before visiting the park. The grounds are beautiful with birdsong in the air, and the food was very good and reasonably priced. We will be back.

Our tour guide built up the restaurant. Sadly everything from the service to stale bread, dry chicken, mush dessert were a disappointment. Maybe because we were a tour our service was downgraded and the waitress was on a set tip. Just guessing. It did appear...More

Aloha "Disappointed" I can imagine how let down you must have felt after Jim raved about our restaurant. Sounds like your table was ignored compared to another Kailani table. Without more information, I can't determine how that could have happened. I can honestly say our...More

The food is good...the service is excellent. It is a nice place that offers a variety of fresh food. Kind of pricy for the amount of food but good enough for a light lunch.

we stopped to have breakfast (and more importantly use the facilities), the staff was attentive and kind, the food was good, looked like a nice oldfashioned place to stay near the National Park.

"Nice old Fashioned Place" is on purpose to give it the look of days gone by in the Volcano area. Somehow "modern" doesn't seem to fit for me in the forest and history of Volcano. We call the look "A Sense of Place." aloha lorna

My husband jokingly said no puka pants and shirt. Actually we just advise casual elegance (jeans Clean shirt ) a lot of our diners come off the trail so fancy is not required. But honestly we even see fur wraps sometimes

Kilauea Lodge and Restaurant, located in the quiet village of Volcano, sits on 5 acres of gardens and gazebos and native forest. This hotel restaurant features a large fireplace, local art, koa tables, and is open nightly. Chef/owner Albert Jeyte blends flavors from his European background with farm, ranch and seafood products from Hawaii, the surrounding Pacific and elsewhere. Volcano Village is at 3700 feet elevation and evenings are often cool and misty. The historic fireplace welcomes guests with it's cheery fire. Home made soups and breads tease the appetite. Albert specializes in unusual game...venison, antelope, rabbit, duck. The biggest sellers are local fish dishes; ahi, ono, mahimahi and the exotic Tristan lobster. A large wine list complements the eclectic menu.
