RESTAURANTS

IN AND NEAR KONA

Dining options in Kona range from the elegant to the extremely casual.   Often, the best restaurants in the area are also the ones that don’t jump out and scream for attention. The cooks are too busy cooking great food to try to spice up the restaurant decor for the locals.   Following are a few of our favorites within walking or easy driving distance.   Click on the links for menus and more information.   (NOTE - there is another button for other favorites on the Island...check them out too if you plan to go a little farther afield.)
