The Oldest Restaurant In Hawaii Has A Truly Incredible History

The Hawaiian Islands have a rich and unique history, and though we love learning about the islands’ history and looking at vintage photos of our beautiful home as much as the next person, sometimes we’d rather learn about fun subjects. For example, the oldest restaurant in the islands, a title given to a small Captain Cook establishment that will be celebrating its 100th anniversary next year. While the Manago Hotel – established in 1917 – may not be the state’s oldest hotel, it is home to the oldest restaurant in continuous operation. The small Big Island eatery of the same name predates Hawaii’s induction into statehood by more than 40 years, and stepping inside is like journeying to a bygone era of Old Hawaii.
