This is for the shave ice place and not the restaurant. One of the best shave ice we had in Kauai. Super reasonable 4.25 price with free snow cap. You can add pretty good toppings like mochi for a nominal fee as well. Tasty!

Ono Family Restaurant looks like something out of a movie set. You would drive right by and you would be making a huge mistake. It's a typical small town diner. A little shabby. But the food is wonderful. The prices are reasonable and you won't find friendlier folks. Breakfast is something to write home about. I ordered an omlet. Didn't... More

Breakfast is the bomb. Banana pancakes are killer. My wife had that. I had the meatloaf after I read a review of it. VERY TASTY! Will definitely eat here again on our next visit to Kauai!

Shave ice is great and average price for the island. Restaurant was hugely disappointing - clumsy service, bad coffee, and food was somewhere between average and terrible. Go to Kountry Kitchen up the street instead.

I have dined at Ono all three times I have had the privilege to visit Kapa'a, in 2005, 2007, and 2013. The food was delicious every time. I love Hawaiian papaya, and they serve it with breakfast as well as other meals - WOW! Everything I've had here was delicious. The coconut pancakes and syrup are to die for ,... More

One size fits all - up to 4 flavours on your 1 shave ice. Line up tells you it's good. Flavours taste great and well worth the visit. Some seating outside.

I have to say that I'm not a huge fan of Hawaiian shaved ice, but the extras make this a really good treat. I could've eaten this almost everyday so I could just try all the different combinations. My favorite was adding a scoop of coconut ice cream in the middle and snow-capped (vanilla or plain sweetened condensed milk). It... More

We were pretty thirsty after out 8 plus beach cruzer bike ride and noticed the Ono Family Shave Ice booth next to the Hele Bike rental store. We ordered 4 shave small Shave Ice and received 4 what looked like large Shave Ice of perfect ice quality and flavor. You don't want miss these guys they are good.

The place is always very busy. There were six adults in our party so we would have had a fairly long wait for a table that seat us together. We opted for back to back tables which worked for us. Large portions, good food but the waitress could have been a little friendlier. We would try this place again

Stopped at the Ono Ono Shave Ice since we had seen them and hadn't tried one. Boy were we missing a good thing! Excellent! Went back the next night for another one. Caught them as they were closing up and they were kind enough to serve us. We shared one - so make sure you take a look at the... More
