Aloha And Welcome

Hi, Im a representative of  Tante Urban, owner of Tante’s Island Cuisine. Whether you are visiting Hawaii or lucky enough to live here, we thank you for stopping by
to share a meal with us here at Tante’s Island Cuisine. We have a diverse menu for you, featuring both American and continental dishes and,
thanks to Hawaii’s mix of ethnic cultures, many popular or special local favorites. We like to use locally-sourced foods when possible- tropical
fruits, island vegetables and of course, lots of fresh fish caught right here in the Hawaiian waters.

Having a restaurant like this one has been a dream of Chef Urban since he came to Hawaii from the Philippines in 1968 and graduated from the University
of Hawaii at Hilo with a degree in Hotel & Restaurant Management.  After years of training as a Chef, he opened his first Tante’s restaurant in Kona 25 years ago. They are a family run restaurant, three generations working together with the motto of ” Good Food, Good Service, Good Price”

Being proud of his heritage and has made dishes from his homeland part of his restaurant menu. It gives people a chance to try something a bit more exotic- like Chef’s signature Shrimp Sari Sari- and I guess they like it: Tante’s has been voted Best Filipino Restaurant a dozen times in the annual readers’ poll conducted by the local newspaper, West Hawaii Today.

We invite you to join us for breakfast, lunch or dinner and to experience the flavors of Hawaii “Local Style” with a mixture of various ethnic cuisines. On behalf of myself, my family and our staff we hope you enjoy dining at Tante’s!   Please call us at 1-808-877-0300 for more information and or reservations.  Please also visit our website at
