Island Breeze Luau Restaurant Review

: The Island Breeze Luau at King Kamehameha's Kona Beach Hotel is popular for its entertaining show and plentiful food. The evening features the procession of The Royal Court to the Royal Grounds for dinner. The buffet offers around two dozen dishes to choose from, including traditional fare like kalua pork (pork cooked in an underground oven), poke and lomi salmon. Complimentary Mai Tais, wine and beer are offered at the bar for two hours during the luau. Festive performances in the style of Maori warriors and Samoan fire dancers cap off the night.
