One of the most impressive meals I have indulged in lately was at Pineapples Island Fresh Cuisine in Hilo. The open-air dining area is perfect for people watching and winding down after a long day. The service is a little slow—perhaps a reminder to take a deep breath and enjoy a bit of time standing still. The food is excellent. Pineapples offers locally sourced flavors that are beautifully presented. The cocktails are tasty and unique to the restaurant.
