A diamond in the rough. Kaleo's is in the quaint little town of Pahoa. The town is a 'throw-back' to the old days...but this place is worth your time! The server was very friendly and made quality suggestions. The food was all local fare...and Very Good! Live music playing inside helped cap off a very nice evening out with my wife. If you've ever wondered where all the 'hippies' have gone...you'll find them in Pahao...and they were all friendly and lovin life! :)

Soulless bland food, rude unqualified waitress, lack of personality. Go to Paolo's (next door) - you won't regret it. Unfortunately the only thing that Kaleo's have going for them is parking.

Wonderful ambiance and an interesting town. Food was interesting and tasty. Service was friendly and good quality. Enjoyed lunch so much we returned for afternoon tea on our return from site-seeing.

Pork ribs, steak, pasta dish-- all very good. Everyone enjoyed their dinner. Great service & good prices. The restaurant is a big house. They also built extensions for additional dining areas. Live guitar music.
Need to make reservations. Casual dining with delicious food.

It's been a while since I've been to Kaleo's. It had been rainy forever, it seemed, and I had enough cabin fever that a friend and I decided to head out to lunch. We were not the only ones, and even for a late lunch, the place was very crowded. Lots of happy sounding conversation all over the place. I ordered the Mahi sandwich and it came beautifully plated and presented. The lilikoi iced tea was wonderful. Delightful lunch. My friend had the same experience.

The only downside was that, with the large crowd, there were not enough servers. On a Tuesday they were probably not expecting the crowd, so I give them slack for that.
