HONU means turtle in Hawaiian ~ typically referring to the endangered Green Sea Turtle in Hawaii. Several years back we fell in love and fully appreciated the beauty and majestic turtles that peacefully sleep on the beaches and lava rocks on the Big Island.
While swimming and snorkeling the shallow beaches often one will get a big surprise around a corner when these large forms come into view seemingly swimming one with the currents.
We honor these amazing animals at our restaurant and invite you to share in our continuing story that decorates our walls and fills our hearts.
Your `Ilio (means dog in Hawaiian) or your canine furry family members are always welcome on our Lanai. Your “Keiki” (means child in Hawaiian) can stay busy working on our keiki menu which is full of turtle themed activities.
We welcome all at our FAMILY and Veteran owned cafe’. Aloha!
