Manta & Pavilion Wine Bar at the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel

Manta & Pavilion Wine Bar at the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel Review

Perched on the edge of a bluff overlooking the sparkling waters of Kaunaoa Beach, the resort's flagship restaurant is a compelling spot for a romantic meal at sunset, especially at one of the outside tables. The Enomatic wine system lets guests sample 48 wines by the glass—from rare dessert wines and ports to premier wines from France, Italy, and Argentina. Executive Chef Peter Pahk's take on Hawaii regional cuisine includes Kona kampachi prepared with black-sesame miso sauce, Japanese apricot oil, and baby arugula salad. Waimea tomatoes, Puna goat cheese, and rainbow chard from a nearby farm are some of the locally grown ingredients. Among Sunday brunch's impressive spread are an omelet station, prime rib, smoked salmon, tempura, lobster bisque, and a build-your-own-sundae bar.
