Chef and owner Albert Jeyte combines contemporary trends with traditional cooking styles from France and his native Hamburg, Germany. The menu changes daily and features such entrées as venison, duck à l'orange with an apricot-mustard glaze, and lamb provençal garnished with papaya-apple-mint sauce. The coconut-crusted Brie appetizer is melty and delicious, served with papaya salsa and brandied apples. Savory soups and breads are made from scratch. Built in 1937 as
a YMCA camp, the restaurant still retains the original Fireplace of Friendship, embedded with coins and plaques from around the world. The roaring fire, koa-wood tables, and intimate lighting are in keeping with this cozy lodge in the heart of Volcano Village.
