Great place for dinner, drinks and music! The mai-tais were great, and the ambiance was excellent. The surf lapped up on the beach, the music was great and really put you in the Hawaiian spirit.

Winding down from a day of exploring the Big Island, my favorite place is Lava Lava. An evening sunset, waves caressing the beach, soothing music, relaxing cocktails, a festive atmosphere and great food. What more is there to say?

Sand in your toes, the perfect cocktail, vibrant aqua blue water, palm trees, combination of comfort and foody menu. Yep, this place has it all. Beautiful scenery, a great bar, food that both comforts and excites, great service.

The location is beautiful. We were seated immediately for dinner (5:15pm). The service was good and the atmosphere fun. However, the food was disappointing, which is why the average review. The portions were on the small side. My husband and I had the Ahi, which...More

Didn’t mean to cause controversy. I should say Lava Lava is a wonderful restaurant-open air bar AT the beach. Which lives up to it’s wonderful reputation as the best in the area.
