“So Good I Went Back Three Times”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 December 2013

Our first encounter with Kaleo's we sat at the bar because the place was packed. The bartender was incredibly friendly and was more than willing to help us select something on the menu to our liking. The atmosphere was great, they had live music playing in the background which was very refreshing. We sampled several different types of drinks which were all good, packed just enough punch for our liking. We ordered the kalua pork wonton for an appetizer and it was delicious. For the main course we both ordered pasta dishes. My wife had the chicken parm and I had the bolognese which both proved to be of excellent quality. Prices at this place are more than reasonable. We got out of there for under $70 which is good considering the amount of stuff we ordered.

We enjoyed this restaurant so much that we got take out two additional times during our stay in Pahoa. We made sure to sample additional items on the menu and Kaleo's never disappointed. Would definitely recommend to a friend and plan on returning soon!

“Delicious Food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 December 2013

Our friends took us to this restaurant in Pahoa and we were blown away! Every entree our party of six had was amazing! They have a full bar, and live entertainment. The rack of baby back ribs my husband had were the best ever! The fish is fresh, fresh, fresh and prepared in a variety of ways. Put this one on your "must do" list while in the area!

“expanded seating, still the best in Pahoa”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 December 2013

Still our favorite in Pahoa, at least once a month. They have now expanded to have seating in the front porch and side porch. Lemon Chicken my favorite, but recently had their special steamed artichoke, WOW. Don't miss it!

We ate here on Thanksgiving. The menu had several great options and at great prices. I could've dined here again. The whole service staff was very friendly. The food came very promptly as well. I'm a restaurant manager and there teamwork here was AMAZING!
