I was so happy to see that Huggo's was serving breakfast inside, not at the sand trap, Huggo's on the Rocks. I LOVE Huggo's restaurant, probably the best location in Kailua. I had looked at the menu online which was varied and interesting, and was looking forward to the Crab Benedict for $22. EPIC MISTAKE! The crab cakes, actually advertised... More

One of the best views on the Kona coast. When the food comes out it looks good because they do a very good job of presentation. The flavor is what is missing. Also the prices are high even by Hawaii standards.

We had $15 Kahakai Breakfast. Eggs of your choice, bacon (they do not offer ham), "smashed" potatoes. Before food we got two free small muffins with macadamia nuts, as extra touch. It was nice. Coffee was not bad. They open at 7 a.m. Place was empty. Food came on a lukewarm side. May be waitress was not paying attention and... More

We loved our experience here. Waited in the lounge with wine watching little crabs crawling over the rocks below us. For dinner, we were seated again on a deck right beside the railing overlooking the ocean & sunset. We tried several small plates & shared. We tried the Ahi tuna poke tower, Kumamoto oysters, grilled Big Island abalone (oh, yeah)... More

The restaurant was full and the staff were still so pleasant. Most of all the view was great with a table overlooking the water.

First of all, the location/view is wonderful. The food was exceptional. Everything you would expect from a fine dining experience. Nice cocktails. I had the fish special for dinner which was delicious! My husband had the cioppino which is a favorite dish of his, and he particularly liked this one. For appetizers we had oysters and abalone. Delicious and we... More

A wonderful table just 10 ft above the water and rocks, a perfect late afternoon setting. We could choose to order off the extensive menu or have a traditional turkey dinner. We ordered drinks and the turkey with the trimmings, good but not great. Portions were very generous but it was expensive, and $10 more per person than as posted... More

Right on the water, gorgeous view of sunset and boats. Great waitress who was knowledgeable and efficient. Ordered a Pina Colada and it was awful; so diluted with ice I could hardly taste any coconut, pineapple or rum! Finished it and ordered a Mai Tai which was just as bad. These folks should taste their own drinks sometime. The good... More

Huggo’s “hBar” (adjoining the main restaurant) offers a ringside seat for one of the loveliest displays Mother Nature has to offer—sunset over the Pacific Ocean. We arrived just in time to settle into one of the comfortable loveseats along the open-air perimeter, with waves crashing over the black lava boulders just below. (There are also plenty of booths and bar... More

I cannot say enough good things about our dinner at Huggo's. I informed them when making the reservation that it was our anniversary, and they gave us the best table for two in the house, right on the water. The service by Chad and company was both excellent and unobtrusive. The drinks were first class, and dinner was very well... More
