My husband and I were driving from the volcano national park to huailaili and we found this restaurant on our way. Casual atmosphere and delicious fresh food. I had a salad with chicken and quinoa..very tasty! Would definitely recommend for a lunch.

Of the 10 days I spent in Hawaii in February, the fresh fish I had on my sandwich at Pau was the best anywhere. The salads were delicious, the one with quinoa the best.

This place was recommended to us by friends and I'm passing the recommendation along. We split a pizza and salad, but had to take most of the pizza home because it was so large. Both were excellent and we were particularly impressed with the friendly service. The pizza was about $22 but I suppose that's reasonable for the area. Parking... More

We frequent Pau at least once a month. Their food never fails to amaze us. I love their huge thin crust pizzas as well as their delicious appetizers and desserts. Check it out if you are ever in the Waimea area, you won't be disappointed!

We enjoyed everything in the appetizer list. Staff were very friendly and fast! We had the chocolate hazelnut moose and was a nice conclusion to a great meal.

I was here three years ago and it was fantastic. Stopped in two days ago and was pleased to find it just as exceptional. The sandwiches (I had mahi, she had a grinder) were delicious.

then Pau is the place for you. Not just thin, but super-thin. Almost like a cracker, in fact. They only make pizzas in one size: BIG. And they cut it into 12 slices. We only ate five, and had plenty of leftovers for another meal. They offer a small number of interesting combinations, and you can also build your own.... More
