Timeless Favorite

Tapas and entrees crafted with local ingredients, and cocktails handmade by Copper mixologists are perfectly paired with enduring panoramic views at lunch, dinner and anytime in between. Nightly music with hula from 5:30 until 8:30 PM is a Mauna Kea tradition.

The iconic Copper Bar is back. Redesigned to embrace its storied past while launching modern traditions for a dynamic future, it’s one of Kohala Coast’s favorite dining and gathering places. Casual, creative tapas and entrees incorporate locally grown ingredients and are easily paired with a selection of craft cocktails, tap beers and wine. Unwind with a handcrafted Mauna Kea Mule and absorb sweeping ocean views that have beckoned travelers for generations.

Moses “Moki” Tavares, Sous Chef

At Copper Bar, Chef Moki Tavares is responsible for planning and directing food preparations, while supervising a creative kitchen staff.

Knowing at a young age that he wanted to be a chef, Tavares began his less than conventional route to the Copper Bar kitchen.   Starting as a steward and working his way through every station at Mauna Lani Bay Hotel’s Canoe House, Tavares eventually made his way to leading his own kitchen at Cafe Pesto in nearby Kawaihae.  He eventually came to join Mauna Kea Resort’s team as Hapuna’s Chef de Cuisine at the hotel’s former signature dining room, Coast Grille.  Now at Mauna Kea Beach Hotel, Tavares is anxious to spread his wings, integrate local produce and bring out their “awesome flavors.”
