Going to Big Island - Review My Picks and Help w/Beachside Dining Location!

tennisboy | Dec 27, 2010 11:30 AM

Hey everyone,

The missus and I are going to the Big Island next week and I've done extensive research on here about where we should eat. (We'll be at the Hilton Waikoloa Village). Also, we would like a nice place by the water -- unsure if I want it to be upscale (like the FS) or more like Duke's (which I know doesn't exist on the BI but you get the picture). What about anything at the Fairmont (Hale Kai Restaurant )? I am tempted to just go to the LAVA LOUNGE at the FS for a ligher dinner w/drinks (on a day we have a big lunch) to avoid the seemingly high prices at Pahu i`a. Thoughts? Is Canoe House worth it perhaps?

Here's what I have it down to, comments appreciated:

DEFINITES:

Big Island Grill
Huli Sue's BBQ and Grill
Holuakoa Cafe
Ceviche Dave's
Rapanui Island Cafe
Merriman's (our fancy dinner)
Coffee Shack
Kona Joe Coffee
Tex Drive In
Scandinavian Shaved Ice
Daniel Thiebaut (Sunday brunch)
Island Lava Java
South Kona Fruit Stand
ITSU's shave ice
Hawaiian Style Cafe
Hilo Market

MAYBES:

Teshima's Restaurant
Aloha Theatre
What's Shakin
Lava Lounge at FS for atmosphere
Canoe House?
Fairmont/Hale Kai Restaurant for atmosphere?

Thanks!
