Kona Inn Restaurant is a wonderful place to go mainly because of its open air location at bayside in Kialua. The food is good but the ambience is beautiful and soothing. Great mai tais.

This is by far the best view and nicest atmosphere in the shopping section of Kailua-Kona. I wish the service was better and the menu was more varied. The prices were moderate, but the food was just average. We waited a long time to order, the food came slowly, and it took a long time to pay the bill. The... More

We came here on our last trip to Kona 2 year ago and it was at the top of my list to experience again on this trip. I love this restaurant. The food is soooooo good! Our group had mac nut crusted Mahi-Mahi, stuffed Ono, and Ono. We all loved every bite of our food (the portions are big!). I... More

We ate at the Kona Inn on our last night in Kailua-Kona. Although we made a reservation for 6:00, we were not seated until 6:30 and only then after reminding the front of house staff that we were there. Once we were seated, our waiter came promptly and we were served quickly, as we told them that we had a... More

We had a great lunch with an awesome water view. Our waitress was Sue and she was wonderful. I had the fish and chips, which was very good. My husband enjoyed his swordfish sandwich and cole slaw. It was difficult to get a table with a view in the evening but we got there at 11:30 AM when they opened... More

This is a solid choice for a diner or lunch. They are right on the coast with a great view. They have both a fine dining and causal restaurant. The food is good and the prices are fair. It was a low VOG night and we even got to see the Green Flash at sunset during diner - a bonus.

I found this place to be really good. Bartender was great, server was great. Food took a bit long to get to us but overall my experience here was pretty good. A little on the expensive side but not really when you realize where you are.
