List of Big Island Restaurants

Having good food is always one of my objectives when traveling, and thus, of course, I want to have good food on Big Island. After reading a lot of articles and TripAdvisor posts, I put together the below list of Big Island restaurants. They are all highly recommended by the authors of these articles and posts. I will also post my reviews after the trip. Please note that many restaurants rated 4.0+ on Google Map are not on here. Please feel free to suggest other places in the comment section.

I group these restaurants in areas so that it is easier to look for an alternative. I also include cuisine styles, the links to the menu, available meals, and ratings for references. Please note that I try my best to describe the cuisine style, but they may still be inaccurate.
