Restaurant
“Located in the renovated, historic Volcano House Hotel, The Rim Restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, daily. The panoramic window-wall offers large views of Kilauea caldera and sunsets. (The best view of the summit eruption's underground lava lake is still from Jaggar Museum, though.) This restaurant is about a twelve-minute drive from the cottage, and, depending on the time of day, you would have to purchase a Park pass or show your receipt for a pass already purchased, to gain entry into HVNP.”
