The food was so bad we couldn't eat it! I think breakfast is safe, but not much else. Seating was terrible. Old worn out booths, dirty floors and could use a renovation. You might want too skip this place for food. However their shaved ice is insanely good!! We went back almost every day just for the shaved ice🌴🌴

We had shaved ice twice at Ono restaurant. Actually we had shaved ice the last time we were in Kauai too. We specially loved Halo halo which is popular Filipino dessert. Breakfast is huge and reasonable price too. We couldn't finish pancakes and omelet and took them to hotel.

We had breakfast at the Ono Family Restaurant almost each morning to start the day on a solid footing. The Loco Moco is what I liked and couldn't get enough. The staff was friendly and kept the coffee flowing. We had shaved ice from there one night and it was great and piled high.

We ate here for lunch, and I'm told that breakfast is much better. Servers/service was quick and responsive, but not especially friendly (which was surprisingly the same for most of Kauai). Both of us ordered burgers cooked medium. Both burgers were well-done. Since the server didn't even ask how to cook the meat, I'm assuming everything is cooked well done.... More

Didn't go to the restaurant but just ordered the shave ice outside. Get the ice cream in the centre! So good! Tried a few different shave ice places on the island and this one was the BEST!!

We had shaved ice here twice while on Kauai. It was amazing both times. Try the Kauai Sunrise - you won't be disappointed!

We drove past this place during the morning. It was lined up out the door so we assumed it was good food and so stopped here for lunch. Bad idea. The service was appalling and the food wasn't great. Food was bland and tasteless. I have no idea why other people are rating this place so highly...can only assume the... More

Breakfast is my favorite here....(lunch not so much). Eggs Canterbury and Eggs Florentine are favorites, though other friends favor the omelets. Ambiance is friendly 'character decor', and although the traffic outside is sometimes a distraction, the very enjoyable breakfasts are worth it.

This is a great place to get shave ice. The shave ice is huge, flavorful and at a great price! What more could you want?!
