Kona Inn Restaurant Review
Today we dined at one of our favorite places in Kailua Kona, the Kona Inn Restaurant. The setting is truly special. When you first walk in, you instantly feel the soothing relaxation with defines this place. As you enter the rotunda shaped lobby, you feel the cooler air trade winds caressing your skin as you feel the loving aloha which is Hawaii. As you look around you see the myriad of world class fish caught in our local waters. There is plenty of sitting area if you happen to have a wait during the weekend dinner crowd.
When you enter the dining area you are immediately warned about the steps down, which is a good warning, as you will be mesmerized by the beautiful view of the ocean and Kailua Bay. As you sit and recline, relaxing in the wicker back chairs your waitstaff will come attend to your needs for beverages and food. We ordered the Seafood Cobb Salad. On this wonderful sunny day the salad was quite refreshing. Everything in the salad was very fresh. The papaya seed dressing was a wonderful balance of sweet and tart. The sea scallops and shrimp were fresh and it was all quite tasty. It was nice to see a salad where everything was presented so well.
For the ambience Kona Inn Restaurant receives a 5 out of 5 surfboards. For its food quality Kona Inn Restaurant receives a 4.5 out of 5 surfboards. For service which was friendly, and timely without bringing the check too early it also receives 4.5 out of 5 surfboards. We love the Kona Inn Restaurant and will be back soon.
