We stopped at Ono Family restaurant for breakfast. I had the fresh strawberry French toast and my husband had the ahi benedict. The French toast is fantastic, the sweet bread they use is really good. The ahi benedict was also really good. We also stopped by for shave ice - it was great!! They have one size with a variety... More

We came here twice on our 5 day visit for the omelets. They are huge and great price! They have so much to choose from on the menu and the food is YUMMY! Come here if you are a big breakfast fan!

Nothing fancy, but the best shave ice in Kapaa! Maybe in Kauai! We went back several times. The lines of happy customers clued us in.

Good food fast but a little pricey. Service could improve but i guess if its busy as it was it is to be expected.

It is definitely a family restaurant, good food, good service, and good value. We went once during the last part of our vacation but would have been there several more times if we knew what a hidden gem it is.

I've been to Kauai perhaps 15 different times, and finally decided to try Ono because of the copious favorable reviews. I had lunch there, ordering the fish of the day, grilled. The remainder of the platter included mixed vegetables, a scoop of white rice, and a lemon wedge. First, the service was inattentive and indifferent. At that point I assumed... More

We went here because the reviews were great. It was a Sunday morning and there was a long wait, but we were willing to wait. It was very noticeable though that the staff was overwhelmed by all the people and they had a hard time keeping organized. I would have totally overlooked this fact except that when we were finished... More
