Hawaii Island Dining

Bring a hearty appetite to Hawaii Island. Choices range from local-style comfort food in neighborhoods like Downtown Hilo, to award winning Hawaii Regional Cuisine in Waimea and the resorts of the Kohala Coast. Creative chefs like Peter Merriman of Merriman’s Restaurant take full advantage of the island's cattle ranches, fresh fish, and local vegetables grown in rich volcanic soil.

And no trip to Hawaii Island is complete without celebrating at an authentic Hawaiian luau. Watch hula performances and dine on traditional Hawaiian food at these fun and festive events. The choices are as vast as the landscape here, from fine dining to laid-back local mainstays. No matter what you eat, a cup of Kona coffee is the perfect way to finish off a big, Big Island meal.
