Our dive boat crew gave us this address and they were spot on. The fish was really fresh and the flavors were excellent. I'll certainly be stopping here again next trip. I would recommend to anyone looking for a quick (but filling) bite to eat.

It looked like a shack. We went in because we thought it looks interesting and local. Ordered their $6 Ono fish burger. Boy we were knocked over by how good that was. This is a must eat if you are in Kona. Beats the other expensive chi chi restaurants hands down.

The simple fact is that the poke is great. This is a must try if your are ever in Kailua kona. However I would prefer going to it's competitor (see other teview). The portion is smaller compared to a competitor, but that's not a deal breaker for me. There isn't much seating available and the pricing of the food could... More

We had a wonderful lunch at the new addition to DPS in Capt. Cook. Open just two months, the restaurant is located on Hwy. 11 at mile marker 106. If you are looking for the freshest yellow fine tuna, in a very unpretentious, relaxed atmosphere don't miss Da Poke. Several verities of Poke to choose from. We ordered the Poke... More

Husband had fresh poke and loved it!!! I had the lau lau and there was hardly anything to it. They do have very cold beer which is great after a hot beach day!

All food is fresh and good with fairly large portions. We had friendly and fast service - we stopped in around 11 am. There are not many places to sit but worth the trip for the poke!

Ok, do you like raw fish? you will. Go here and eat and then eat some more. This place is "most fresh"

The food was pretty good but it ultimately made me sick. Don't want to speculate but I'm fairly certain it had to do with the food prep. I eat raw fish often as I enjoy sushi and other similar foods and I have never had an issue. Again, it was good but not amazing as advertised on some of the... More

Wake up yourself treat customers like customers! !!!! No aloha stink eye . very bad attitude. It really doesn't matter if the poke is good when they make you feel like crap!!! Don't waste your time unless you want to be treated like crap
