This is one of the only restaurants in town with prices and atmosphere comparable to the splurge restaurants at the Kohala Coast resorts. The dinner offerings sometimes fall short, considering the high prices, but lunch is usually a good bet. Windows open out over the rocks at the ocean's edge, and at night you can almost touch the marine life swimming below. Relax with cocktails for two and feast on fresh local seafood; the nightly chef's special is always changing. If you're on a budget, try Huggo's happy hour: pupus are half price from 5:30 to 6 pm and drink specials run from 4 to 6 pm daily.
Huggo's on the Rocks, next door, is a popular outdoor bar in the sand, and the burgers are pretty darn good, too. It's also Kailua-Kona's hot spot for drinks and live music on Friday nights. www.huggos.com. Credit cards accepted.
