You can't beat the view from here - right on the water The food was delicious. Every mouthful was full of multiple flavours. Staff were very professional and friendly. Loved everything about it. Slightly pricey but food was worth it.

I booked the restaurant using the link from the hotel website because we were arriving at Kailua-Kona on Christmas day. What a surprise when we arrived at the restaurant, which is right by the water with beautiful view of the beach and the sunset. A great start to our holiday. The food was excellent and the servings were huge. Service... More

Great seafood with a nice view of the waves crashing into the bay. We stopped in right around 5:00 an ad they were able to seat us right away. We didn't get to sit on the rail without a reservation, but our table was the best "non reservation " table in the house. Still had a great view. Both of... More

We were walking by this restaurant and it was ride by the water and had the most beautiful view. It was a little loud for us old people but the music was great. I ordered the seafood chowder which was excellent.

Nice waterfront restaurant with excellent service and food! While normally we would order seafood while on an island, we tried the Prime Rib, and wow, it was incredible!

Portuguese sausage, bell peppers, potatoes, and two eggs are served up for breakfast on a hot skillet! Had we known that this was such a big portion, we could have split this between two of us! But no...we had to stuff ourselves. We can always burn it off later, can't we? Prices are reasonable. Everyone thinks everything costs more on... More

We had a dinner with my husband here today. The view is very nice and the stuff is very kind. Everything else is just average except your bill, it will be high! Simly overpriced restaurant, you pay for the view not for the food :(

We got there in time to enjoy a beautiful sunset while listening to the waves crash on the rocks. Convenient parking right in front of the restaurant, delicious food, reasonable prices, outstanding service. This is one of the nicer restaurants in the area, but very relaxed, not at all pretentious or stuffy.

We happened to be driving by this place and noticed it's waterfront location; that's what drew us in. But the food and service is why we stayed. Brilliant. If ever we return to Kona, we will return to Huggos.

Had a delicious and very generous breakfast at Huggos. Coffee was the best we've tasted on the island so far (day 3) and we are serious coffee drinkers. Service was excellent. Menu reasonably varied and nice water views.
