Torchy's Kailua-Kona Reviews
Nov 13, 2007
We went to Torchy's get a drink and have appetizers. It was 8 PM or so and the place was practically empty.
It took a long time for the waiter to decide to take our order and quite a long time to get the drinks and food after we ordered....Ray and Linda asked for water three times before they finally got it.
I ordered an appetizer of 3 cheeses, fruits and nuts... Ok we are in Hawaii.... It should be good, Right? The $14.00 dish consisted of 3 wedges of cheese of dubious quality ... the wedges at their largest were one inch. Piled on top of the cheese in the center of the wooden platter was about 1/2 cup of almonds and about 6 slices of green apple. That was it... for $14.00. It was insulting! A five year old could have put together a nicer looking and more appetizing plate. I was so mad I forgot to get a picture. THAT is mad for me!
The drinks were pretty but very poor flavor. It was obvious that they did not use fresh ingredients and had not used alcohol.... We all ordered different types of margaritas (mango, berry ....) The kicker was they cost $8.00 each....
Please take our word that it was a waste of money: four drinks at $8.00 each and a $14.00 plate... yikes.... I cannot reccomend this lackluster restaurant...... It has a view but there are other restaurants with a view that have good food and service in the same area.
