Food and Drink

Keauhou Shopping Center 

The Keauhou Shopping Center is a short 10 minute walk up the hill, and has some great restaurants:

Kenichi Pacific 

Great sushi & other Japanese food. Very good happy hour daily, go early as happy hour fills up quickly, especially on the weekend!

Sunset Kai Lanai 

Just up the hill from Keauhou Shopping Center. Great spot for watching the sunset on the horizon with your drink.  Food is not suggested in our opinion. 


Geat pizza and pasta!  Vegan cheese available.
