If you are staying in the hotel and don't want to walk five minutes to find restaurants across the street, then this is a convenient option. Other than being in an open air environment, there is no reason to choose this restaurant. The food is average, the service is slow and the prices are high.

Met old friends here at their recommendation. There were very few people there even though we had reservations. Service was slow and food was barely OK. My crab cakes were about the worst I've ever tasted. My husband tasted and totally agreed. Our least favorite restaurant in our two week trip. There's many good ones around so don't waste your...

Highly recommend the Saturday Prime Rib and Crab Pa'ina. Beautiful sunset view and good buffet consisting of prime rib and crab legs, lobster bisque, shrimp cocktail, poke, salad bar, baked potato bar, rice, veggies, pasta and fish dishes and a variety of deserts. Service was friendly and efficient.

Do not eat breakfast or dinner here. Two of us ordered the steak and mash for $45usd and it was literally.. steak and mash. Boring and not worth it.... More

This is our second visit to Hawaii Calls, the food was so good and the view is spectacular! I had Mahi Mahi and my husband had the chicken. It was really good, service was great. We made reservations so we would be eating at sunset it was so pretty to watch the sunset over Anaeho'malu Bay, our favorite beach on... More

Unfortunately this was a disappointment but the location is fantastic and you might have a better experience than us. Two families went out for dinner two nights ago. It turned out that evening was the buffet night and I think that might have been our problem. We aren't above a buffet but for $55 each I would prefer to order... More

Having dinner at the Hawaii Calls restaurant is always on our list of to do things on Kona. The food is fine, the service is okay and the bar can be noisy. But the setting for a sunset dinner is special and a good value.

We were here during their remodeling, so it wasn't busy at all (no one dining, 530pm) but were told by hostron that we couldn't have a table, so we perched at the bar. Lucky for us that we weren't seated at a table, as we had a fun and engaging evening visiting and joking with the bartenders and eating pub... More
