“Stunning Setting - Food Another Matter”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

The ambiance was out of this world. You feel surrounded by the ocean. Every seat in our table for 4 had a view. The service was excellent. We were in a bit of a rush since we had a concert to attend. I would say nothing could have been better except for the food. A shrimp started was a little greasy. The $22 hamburgers were very large, delicious and came with fries in an individual basket. I don't know but the price was pushing it. How can you ruin an $8 Big Wave? You can't. But the pizza was a different story. It seemed like the crust was drenched in olive oil and it was totally soft. It was first really bad but since we in a rush, we just moved on.

On a previous visit I have been disappointed in a pasta dish I ordered. One thing is for certain: you can't beat the view and service. And that makes any price worth an occasional visit here.

“Excellent food and atmosphere”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Food is excellent. A popular restaurant at the Four Seasons Kona. We generally had the catch of the day for dinner. Lively, fun.

“Nice place, but I've had better”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

It's "upscale". We all know what that means. And it is on Hawaii, where everything is expensive. So I expect to pay more here. And I did. Our meals were very good and the location is also very good. The part that I found shocking was what they charged for mixed drinks. Get ready to pay $18 for a Mai Tai and $23 for other mixed cocktails. Geez! I can buy a whole bottle of rum for what they charge for one drink! That's ridiculous! And you can't tell me that alcohol is more expensive on Hawaii than other places, because it's not...I checked.

Imagine sipping ice cold mango mai tais as you lounge comfortably on teak furniture. The warm tropical breeze cooling your skin, you close your eyes and listen to the relaxing sounds of the surf. Open them, look directly out on the ocean past the "beach tree" and bear witness to one of the most beautiful sunsets your mortal eyes will ever see. Take a deep breath and order another drink. Heaven? No. The beach tree bar and grill. Go for a late drink or dinner. As beautiful as it is, there is no air conditioning, so you may find yourself sweltering at high noon. The later in the evening, the better.
