Very good tasting. Shrimp tacos for me and chicken for the wife. (They had run out of the fish). At a nicer restaurant I would expect to get two very small soft taco shell with each having three medium shrimp in them and pay $12....More

So we did a mini taco crawl (basically hit up as many taco places as we can) and found this one to be amazing! The amount of fish they put on the taco is pretty awesome (especially for $4.50). We went back a second time...More

Nothing beats these fresh ahi tacos! The rice was very flavorful but the beans were bland in comparison. Will be back!

We had fish tacos at 3 locations near Kapaa. This was the favorite. The fish has the best ratio of fish and toppings. No crazy amount of slaw here. The al pastor was extremely flavorful. Two tacos rice and beans is plenty for a meal.

The fish tacos were excellent, as was the rice. I'm not a fan of the pinto beans and would have preferred refried. Also, the moas everywhere diminished the low key ambiance. Good, quick option!

As other posters have mentioned, it really depends on where you are. There is strong wave action. Check with your hotel as to the safety of the beach in front of the hotel. Many area are not good for non-swimmers/waders... More
