KPC (Kamuela Provision Company) at the Hilton Waikoloa Village. The breezy lanai has the most spectacular view of the leeward coast of any restaurant on the Big Island. Get here by 5:30 if you want to score a seat for the sunset. It's the perfect accompaniment to the elegant yet down-to-earth Hawaii regional cuisine. Specialty cocktails, like the mango martini, are great, too. Entrées are on the pricey side, but the ginger-steamed monchong (a deep-water Hawaiian
fish) is a winner. Among appetizers, the ahi carpaccio does not disappoint. The restaurant's number-one seller is the Kona Coffee Mud Slide, but the Baked Mauna Kea (KPC's take on a baked Alaska) is equally decadent. Hilton Waikoloa Village, 69-425 Waikoloa Beach Dr., Waikoloa, HI, 96738. 808/886–1234. www.hiltonwaikoloavillage.com. No lunch.
