The indulgent Ovaltine Froth or cool Fredrico served beachside at Hau Tree. Big Island fine dining at Manta or tapas at Copper Bar. A clambake under the stars or a Hawaiian luau. All of the dining traditions are as treasured as the unforgettable ocean views and coming together for a meal at Mauna Kea is one of the best traditions of all.
