The Manago Hotel & Restaurant

Manago Hotel & Restaurant

Only In Your State on the oldest restaurant in Hawaii, which is in the Manago Hotel in Captain Cook.

After your snorkel tour at the famous Kealakekua Bay, you may want to check out the oldest restaurant in Hawaii which opened in 1917.

Overlooking Kealakekua Bay in Captain Cook, the Manago Hotel isn’t the oldest hotel in Hawaii but its restaurant can claim that distinction.   Famous for its pork chops the restaurant used to cater to mainly locals as the prices for rooms are considerably lower than the more modern hotels on the Big Island.

The Manago Hotel is at 1350 foot elevation with cool breezes. Originally the hotel had two cots and some futons but has expanded to 64 guest rooms.

It’s like stepping into a part of Hawaiian history 40 years before Hawaii became a state.
