We have been on the search for the best fish tacos on Kauai and this is the winner so far. Small take out spot but better than the food trucks and only $15 for 3. Kudos!!

The flavor or the food was great. Very small place but plenty of outdoor seating. Prices were very reasonable also. The staff wasn't very friendly I don't know if they were having a bad day or what because they looked miserable no hello no smile nothing. Not the end of the world but it's always nice when you go eat... More

The tacos, especially fish tacos are some of the best in town. The seafood flautas are outstanding as well. Only downside is the wait can be 25 minutes or so. Definitely worth the wait 🌴

I admit it - we ate lunch here twice because we liked the carnitas burrito and quesadilla so much. I went back to get lemon for my ice tea, and the guy went away for a few minutes and came back with a whole lemon he cut up for me.

Eating outside in the sunshine in a beautiful tropical setting is always a treat, but the great food at Federico's made it extra special for us! Our group had a wide variety of the offerings and no one was disappointed. The seafood flautas are worth special mention. The setting is casual with picnic tables outside on the Main Street of...

If you like Guacamole, tacos and burritos you can't miss this place! Food is very fresh and handmade and the price is good: around $30 for a couple of big shrimps burritos and 2 cokes.

Highly recommend a bite to eat at Federico's for lunch or dinner after time in the sun. The fish was amazing in our burrito and tostodas! The other ingredients were so fresh! $30 for two. Its not cheap but its not expensive and it was very filling.

Federico's is a great lunch spot which is just down the road from where we stay at the Westin. Jump in the car and in 5 minutes - there's lunch. The owner has two locations, here in Princeville Center and in downtown Hanalei. He was a master chef at the St. Regis in Princeville till he and his better half... More

Nice place in the Princeville Shopping area. A bit of a diversion when you have all the tropical foods available to you.

Don't miss this spot if you have a soft spot for Mexican food. Very good and prolly the cheapest meal we had on North Shore. They do not serve alcohol but you can buy some at store across the street and have with your meal. All outdoor seating. Refried beans were amazing!
