On a suggestion from someone working at the airport, this did not disappoint. Fish tacos with ahi were amazing. They were closed on our first attempt, but were open later. Highly recommend for a quick and flavorful bite.

Tiny sidewalk café right in historic downtown Kapaa. The wrap I had there was one of the best I've ever eaten. It was a wonderful Hawaiian atmosphere and good food. Definitely worth a stop for lunch.

We were looking for a spot to grab dinner and went into this place not knowing what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised as the food was really good. The service was good but took awhile to warm up to our server.

Love this "shack" on the street in Kapaa for quick made-to-order Tuna wraps/burritos/tacos....SO yummy, great for kids, great for apres beach when you are sandy and dishevelled. Expensive but in keeping with other quality food experiences on the island. Just as good as years ago...More

Don't miss this hole-in-the-wall restaurant. There's several delicious menu items, each with a choice of chicken, ahi (fish) or tofu. Similar in price to elsewhere around town, but the servings are large. The peanut satay was especially good. I'm glad to see there were also...More
