“Beach Bar and Restaurant on the Beach with Sunsets!”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

What a fantastic Hawaiian setting! Sitting on the beach with a Mai Tai ($6 at happy hour), listening to live music and watching the sunset…it doesn’t get any better in Hawaii…well add some good food and you can’t go wrong. You need a reservation if you go for dinner. We had a reservation, but somehow while we were waiting at the bar, our table was given away. However, the manager took care of us…two rounds of drinks on him and then a table where we had great food and listened to Henry Kapono (legendary Hawaiian singer) performing only a few feet away…all the while running our toes through the sand!

“Dinner and a view”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Location, location, location...and good food. Lava Lava is the place to be for sunset in Waikoloa. And the food is very good. Go early for happy hour on the beach.

“Great Happy Hour Location”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

This was a great location for a restaurant and bar. As you drive past the Waikoloa Bay area towards the beach, you either turn to the right to go directly to the beach or travel on the road to the left to the Lava Lava Beach Club. Seating in the restaurant and bar overlooks a flat beach area and it's great for just people watching and sipping your drink during the day's happy hour. We didn't know it at the time, but happy hour consists of half price drinks AND half price appitizers. What a great place to spend hours on end talking with friends and just relaxing while watching the sun set. This is what a Hawaiian vacation is all about.

“Unbeatable!”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

My wife and I have been traveling around the pacific for 21 years, this is our second trip to the Big Island, the first was in 2006. Lava Lava Beach Club is the absolute quintessential Hawaiian experience. It's set directly on the beach in Waikoloa, with perfect sunset views! It's too bad we only found it on our last night. We would have loved to stay in one of the amazing bungalows as well. From service to food and everything in between, nicely done!

“Beach Party Vibe!”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

We had a nice dinner here our last night on the island. The atmosphere is wonderful. The tables are literally on the beach. The food was very good. The menu included beef and chicken entrees as well as the seafood you would expect to find at a restaurant on the beach. I especially liked the coconut jasmine rice. The server wasn't at all attentive. I had the impression he was there to enjoy the party!
