|Summary:||Gluten Free Birthday at Mauna Kea Hotel's Manta and Pavilion Wine Bar|
The wait staff was totally educated on gluten-free eating and guided me through my entire meal selection without a hitch. It's always scary for me to put my life and health in the hands of a waiter or chef, but after a thorough conversation with our darling waitress, I knew I was in good hands. Just make sure to ask lots of questions and let the concierge know when you make the reservation that you are gluten-free.
In the middle of dinner, the Manta Rays stopped by for a visit. All of us dining on the patio were treated to a show with two Mantas swimming in the Bay, just below under the spotlights - they surely knew they were the main attraction!
Another portion of the meal to note - The Manta and Pavilion Wine Bar had a wonderful variety of wine to taste by the ounce or glass, as well as some truly delicious Hawaiian cocktails and other adult beverages that are safe for a Celiac - so enjoy!

She had equally great experiences at other "Big Island" restaurants, including the Fairmont Orchid Hotel's Brown's Beach House on Kohala Coast and Pahu i'a Restaurant in the Four Seasons Hotel in Kailua-Kona. And ALL the restaurants at the hotel where she stayed on the Big Island -- the Hapuna Beach Prince Resort -- were well-versed in gluten-free food preparation. She enjoyed a particularly wonderful meal at the Coast Grille. You can also follow "GlutenFreeGal" on her own Gluten Free Bowl of Soul Blog.
