This wonderful place sits in a very nondescript with no windows and about 12 tables total. The intimate atmosphere transported us from our tropical location to Paris. The French fare was quite authentic. My husband dined on lobster bisque and wild boar and I had pumpkin soup and beef tenderloin with best bernaise sauce I have ever tasted. Fresh asparagus... More

We had never before tried this restaurant, as the outdoor appeal just did not grab us, with all the sunny open air options in Kona. Inside it has really no more and beyond the outside. Clearly the selling point is the French food, which was good. I ordered the beef tenderloin. The medium rare cooking I requested was done to... More

As other reviews have stated, the location is a bit "interesting" and once inside is still a little box'ish although recently renovated. First of all, the selection of wine by the glass was very good. We had champagne to start that was very good. This was followed by a New Zealand sav Blanc and then my husband had red recommended...

Outstanding French cuisine. Everything is made fresh that day. Husband and wife team makes you feel like you are family. This is a local and repeat visitor restaurant. If you are staying in Kona this is a must visit. Reservations are required and do it ASAP. There are not that many seats and they fill fast.

After living in Kailua-Kona for about a year, and after being told by friends I was missing out on a true culinary treasure. It's easy to miss La Bourgogne as you drive along Kuakini Highway. The building looks like an insurance office or real estate title company... but as soon as you step through the door, eyes adjusting from the... More

Although I've eaten all over the world and have spent 5 or more times as much for meals in Paris, Rome, London, Montreal, Istanbul, and even Las Vegas, I don't think I've ever had a better restaurant meal than the foie gras and cassoulet at La Bourgogne. Wine pairings were perfect, service was superb, and the food was delicious. The... More

This is a charming family owned French restaurant. I would say this is the nicest restaurant on the Big Island. We have celebrated many special occasions here.

I can't understand the high ratings. It must be because its Hawaii and prople are on vacation, or have never had real French food. Went to celebrate a birthday. No atmosphere, no view...its a box room. Poor, rude service, burnt garlic in the escargot, and bland fish "stew"? The sweet breads were average. This is an expensive restaurant that would... More

One of the top three meals I've eaten in a restaurant in the past 50 years! Fantastic food, great wine pairings, and attentive service - at 3/4 the price I'd expect to pay in Kona for this quality (no view). Perfect place for a romantic getaway or a special birthday celebration. I had the foie gras with a glass of... More

La Bourgogne is a tiny hidden gem about 3 miles outside of Kona. With only 12 tables located in the ground floor of an older 2 story building it would be easy to overlook the restaurant. We have been coming to the Big Island for 20 years and this remains one of our favorite dining spots. The food is great... More
