Fantastic people, great service, and GREAT food. Bare in mind that they are a small location so if you have a large party you will probably be seated at separate tables. We went with a party of 6 and every single one of us LOVED...More

If you're looking for a tasty treat while on Kauai, visit Ono Shave Ice. Lots of yummy flavors at a great price.

Ok...a must have! Order your flavors and don't forget to order you shaved ice with ice Cream! My favorite is the Kauai Java with Kona Coffee ice cream. Good rain or shine. They have umbrellas!

My kiddos requested these daily! One size one price. Can't beat it. We call them snow cones here in Texas....I personally think they are better in Kauai. I could eat shave ice from here every day with the kids, they are that good.

Very good and family friendly. Can have up to 4 flavors on one shave ice cone. My fav is the Eastside Sunrise, one of the suggestion combos, which consists of sour cherry, mango, and passion fruit!

The kitchen churned out some banana pancakes fast for our two year old nephew to keep him occupied while the rest of the food was cooked. Very thoughtful! Thank you!

Portuguese Bean Soup is a favorite on all the isles. On Kaua'i, Ono Family's has won awards. Try some! In downtown Kapa'a; parking on the side. Busy intersection.

I brought family here, that was visiting from the mainland & was so embarrassed by the service. Yes, I get that we arrived right before closing but there's no excuse for the way we were treated. We ended up ordering just one item on the...More
