Keʻei Café

Bistro in Kealakekua

If you’re craving some fine dining while in South Kona, it’s hard to do better than Keʻei Cafe, which has carved a name for itself as an excellent outpost of haute Hawaiian cuisine. Cracking peanut miso salad sets the stage for powerful mains like roasted chicken served with red curry sauce – or, if you’re in the mood, a more Western peppercorn gravy.

Reservations recommended; request a lanai table.
