This is our sixth trip to the Big Island. We rent a delightful cottage in lower Puna near Kalpana. We get our groceries and supplies in Pahoa but never dined in a restaurant there. After a long day to Volcanoes National Park and down to...More

Found this lovely restaurant while driving through the town of Pahoa and decided to give it a try. We were not disapppinted. From the friendly waitress to the huge and varied menu choices we were very impressed. Our meals ( large servings) were delicious. Would...More

A bright, casual setting with an inventive menu and "local favorites" menu, both generally well done. In three dinners there we had friendly service and five good meals, featuring ahi, and one less successful macadamia-nut crusted fish dish. On balance, a pleasant experience in Pahoa.

We were staying at a vacation rental and found this place about 15-20 minutes away. The food is good, but I would just call it average. The staff was very nice and we were served quickly each time.

The food was great and it's a friendly restaurant. It was recommended by it Airbnb host. So glad we tried it. Since we were in the Pahoa area sick a short time we only got to go once, but we will be back!

Stopped for lunch, service and food was phenomenal. So glad we discovered this little gem. Location was easy to find. Sat outside and definitely enjoyed little town.

Overpriced. Inconsistent food. Poor service. If they are out of the grass fed beef they will just serve you a frozen patty and not say a word. After repeated attempts I have given up on Kaleo's. On my last visit they ruined the only thing...More
