MANTA delivers cuisine worthy of the scenery…

In the Manua Kea Beach Hotel on the Big Island of Hawaii is a restaurant that almost upstages the palm lined lava flows and pristine beaches that end in the blue glassy Pacific waters. That restaurant is MANTA, named after the rays that swim right up to the beach, and the Chef is George Gomes. Chef Gomes cut his culinary teeth in the midst of the emergence of New Hawaiian cuisine pioneered by the likes of Alan Wong and Roy Yamaguchi. The meal we had at MANTA rivaled some of the finest we’d had anywhere with a focus on local seafood and island produce.  You can read about our meal HERE.
