Island of Hawaii Restaurants

Thanks to innovative chefs and delicious homegrown ingredients, the island of Hawaii is fast becoming a hot spot for foodies. Fresh and local produce is at your fingertips throughout the region, whether you’re splurging on an elegant beachside dinner at a Kohala resort, feasting on kalua pig and poi at a luau or grabbing a quick al fresco lunch of grilled shrimp and slaw from a food truck. 

In many locales, all around the island, you’ll find creative eateries taking full advantage of the island's cattle ranches, fresh seafood and hearty vegetables grown in the island’s rich, volcanic soil. From traditional Hawaiian cuisine to refined New American fare and a variety of Asian cuisines, the choices are as vast as the landscape. No matter where you eat, a cup of locally grown coffee is the perfect way to finish off any meal on the island of Hawaii. The local beans are so good, you might want to consider a tour and tasting at one of the nearby coffee farms in Kona or Kau.
