We stopped by midway on our bike ride and were seated pretty quickly. It was a hot day but lots of fans kept us cool. We felt like the place had been around forever and never redecorated, which was part of its appeal. Salads were very fresh and tasty. The soup was well liked, as was the Portugese style pork....

We loved Ono family Restaurant. We ate here almost every day of our vacation for breakfast. The food was awesome especially the fried rice for breakfast. Great service and reasonably priced food.

Ono's is a must-stop for us on Kauai. It is nearly always crowded. Parking is hard to find and often requires a short walk, but it is absolutely wonderful. The restaurant is old, with a screen door. The decor appears to be a couple of decades old, or older. The character of the place is fascinating, the staff is friendly,... More

Places like this are why I trust Trip Advisor! Not the cleanest, fanciest place - no A/C, but lots of good local food at reasonable prices. Ate breakfast there twice, and whole family enjoyed their food - Captains Plate has eggs, fish, rice, toast, and tha have a bottomless guava juice. Will go back again - this is a hit!!

Yummy breakfast. This is a great restaurant for breakfast. You can order an American or Hawaiian breakfast. This time I had French toasts with scrambled egg and bacon. Everything was good. The French toasts were served with hot coconut and maple syrups. Both syrups were delicious . We arrived around 8:30 and were seated right away. Hubby had fried rice... More

Did not ever expect that I would love shave Ice! OMG what a treat! Go with one of the combinations they have listed! Only $3.50 for a huge helping was great! Easily shareable for two people! We passed on the ice cream but did not feel we needed it! So sorry we did not get to re visit this one!... More

We shared one and for under $5 we could not finish it so large. The order person was great at explaining all the unique flavors. Highly recommend having a scoop of ice cream in the middle, the Kona Coffee mixed great with our pineapple flavored ice. Be sure to get the traditional snow cap to top off the shave. Nice... More
