Exterior
Based in the small town of Pahoa just north of the observation area for the lava flowing into the ocean. Looks like an old western movie style building. Free parking on gravel next to restaurant.

Interior
Decorated to feel like an authentic little Mexican restaurant.

Service
Our waitress was friendly and explained some dishes I had never heard of before quite well.

Toilets
Restrooms were OK but could have been cleaner.

Review
Having just viewed lava flowing into the ocean at the end of route 130, there was little chance that we would make it to Hilo in time for last orders so we stopped off in the nearest town of Pahoa. It was a great choice as we were treated to well cooked authentic Mexican food. The food did not look brilliant on the plate but it made friends with my taste buds very quickly. Luquin’s would score higher if they worked on presentation, had a better explained menu and perhaps a nicer restroom, the food though is not to be missed!

Score
10/20
