Lava Cake anyone ?

Melbourne, Australia

Personally we found the restaurant a bit pretentious. That is more a criticism of us then them.. just not our type of dining. That said, our waiter was attentive and friendly. A constant supply of cold water, before asking, is always a good sign. The meals and especially the desserts were quite superb. Live Hawaiian music in the background, the view of the glowing rim from the volcano.... they are not doing much wrong here. An enjoyable evening.

Fire and Smoke

Cookeville, Tennessee

My husband and I stayed 2 nights at the Volcano House on the Big Island of Hawaii. This is run by the National Park Service and has less than 40 rooms. We were welcomed by the friendly staff and our check-in was quick and easy. Don’t expect a five star room, but our room was clean, decorated nicely and had an awesome view of the crater. There is no television as they want you to enjoy and experience the park, with its stunning views and many walking trails. The lobby was so inviting with its fireplace and rocking chairs, and there is a nice restaurant and a bar with full views of the crater, and two gift shops with very nice items to commentate your visit. Across the street is the museum with everything you would want to know about volcanos and the beautiful art center showcasing the many items made by local artists on the island. If you want to do something different while visiting the Big Island, the Volcano House is the place to be.
