When traveling, you may not want to visit too many hotel restaurants. However, Hawaii Calls is not like other hotel restaurants. This dining site is inside the Waikoloa Beach Marriott Resort and Spa. Its award-winning chefs go beyond the usual hotel fare to offer guests farm-to-table Pacific Rim-inspired dishes.
This open-air restaurant includes views of the pool and ocean beyond. If you stay at the resort, you also can indulge in the poolside ordering of drinks and food from the restaurant. The resort’s location on the northwest side of the Island of Hawaii means you will have a spot to relax and enjoy sunsets at dinner.
Visitors regularly mention the extreme friendliness and helpfulness of the entire staff. Whether you order poolside, at the bar, or in the dining area, you’ll get personalized service. In fact, staff members regularly will provide recommendations to visitors, since the menu changes regularly. Don’t be afraid to ask for suggestions if you don’t know what to order. The staff is always happy to help.
Relax at Hawaii Calls while you enjoy one of the following recommendations:
A favorite entree at Hawaii Calls is the Prime Rib. This succulent meat comes with au jus and Hamakua mushrooms. But you might not need these extras to enhance the meat. It stands well on its own. With this and other dinner entrees, you have choices of mushroom soy fried rice or garlic mashed potatoes and a vegetable. The mashed potatoes pair better with the Prime Rib than the fried rice. Even the servers make this recommendation, which visitors greatly appreciate.
Named for the resort housing the restaurant, the Marriott Burger is a simple bacon cheeseburger that comes full of flavor. Its slightly sweet bun foils the savory flavors of the beef patty, cheddar cheese, and bacon inside.
Ahi Poke Nachos
Called “amazing” and “divine” the Ahi Poke Nachos turn the classic chips and salsa appetizer on its head. These nachos use freshly caught fish cooked with spicy seasonings. It comes with avocado, sriracha mayonnaise, tomatoes, and cucumbers over won ton chips.
The toppings and availability of Ahi Poke Nachos will change throughout the year to ensure that you have the freshest ingredients in your dish. Sometimes, these appear on Taco Tuesdays with tacos and margarita specials. You’ll never think of nachos the same way after trying this unique dish.
Baby Gem Caesar Salad
Fresh lettuce, grated parmesan cheese, croutons, and chef-prepared Caesar aioli dressing elevate the Baby Gem Caesar Salad at Hawaii Calls from a simple side to a delicious dinner. Add freshly caught fish, prawns, or chicken to make a meal of this basic dish, or choose to pair it with a sandwich or other entree to have some crunch and garlicky goodness with your meal. If you want a heartier alternative to the Caesar Salad, order Fresh Catch Nicoise Salad, which has romaine lettuce freshly caught fish, fingerling potatoes, tomatoes, olives, edamame, and eggs.
Spicy Mayo Poke Bowl
For lunch, try the Spicy Mayo Poke Bowl, or any of the other poke bowl options offered. The Spicy Mayo Poke Bowl includes pickled vegetables and unagi sauce with spicy mayonnaise and fish.
