Fodor's Expert Review Keei Cafe at Hokukano
Just 20 minutes south of Kailua-Kona, this nicely appointed restaurant with a warm, woodsy vibe serves delicious dinners with Brazilian, Asian, and European flavors, highlighting fresh ingredients from local farmers. Favorites are the Brazilian seafood chowder or peanut-miso salad, followed by pasta primavera smothered with a basil-pesto sauce. There's an extensive wine list, or you can sip a refreshing mojito or a good champagne before dinner. If your party is smaller, you may opt to eat on the lanai.
