The Food Is The Focus
“What we take into our bodies becomes part of us, that’s why we source our ingredients from Big Island farms and ranches that care deeply about the quality of their ingredients and the global impact of their methods.
First, you taste the difference, then you feel the difference.”
-Chef Makani Carzino

BIG ISLAND BEEF
In 1794 Captain Vancouver returned to the Big Island and presented the King with a dozen cattle and suggested that they be protected for 10 years and allowed to multiply.
Kamehameha took this to heart and placed a ban on the hunting of cattle that wasn’t lifted for 36 years, at which point Kamehameha the Third introduced the Paniolos – Hawaiian Cowboys, and thus begun the Hawaiian cattle industry.
Big Island beef is some of the best quality around, as the ranchers raise grass-fed, anti-biotic, and hormone-free cattle which is leaner and healthier than mainland grain-fed beef.
Local Organic Salads
We work with Big Island farmers who grow their own certified organic crops. From our organic, mixed green salad to our butter lettuce and Hamakua mushrooms.
We Support Big Island Farmers
Chef Makani takes pride in sourcing our ingredients from Big Island farms. Some of our customer favorites include our fresh pineapples, avocados, tomatoes, and iced green tea.

Locally Caught Fresh Fish
Our fish is always freshly caught off the Kona coast. If you're eating it today that means it was swimming yesterday. Our local Big Island fishermen bring us their catch each day and we update our menu accordingly.
