Island of Big Island

Visit the stone temple heiau in Kawaihae Harbor built by Kamehameha the Great in 1790–then dine at Café Pesto, long considered an innovator of our ethnically diverse island cuisine. This award winning, family restaurant has a widely known reputation for food that is wonderfully fresh, creatively inspired and affordably priced. “A wonderful alternative to the resorts...the best of Hawai‘i’s hidden treasures,” claim food critics and locals alike. The menu features fresh local seafood, exotic pizzas, colorfully eclectic salads, and Asian inspired pastas and risottos. The setting is charming and distinctly casual.
