My family and I brought my aunt and uncle here before heading to Maui as a thank you for hosting us. We had found it through Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. We found out later that it was one of my cousin's (a local) favorite restaurants. I had the furikake ahi (ahi tuna coated in furikake, a japanese seasoning with seaweed).... More

We had a party of 10 people, and arrived in groups. The first group that arrived asked to have a table set up, and the hostess was very rude and said she would not do anything until 9 of the 10 people showed up! We were about ready to leave until another restaurant employee showed up and said they would... More

9/3/14..Early dinner overlooking the sunset with live jazz music provided the atmosphere for a great evening. Our waitress was well versed in the specials and availability of dishes. I had Ahi tuna crusted, seared rare. Nephew and daughter both enjoyed the Mahi Mahi. Dessert was a Pina Colada cake..delicious. Very busy place, a good sign. Good parking, seating inside and... More

It took a bit of research to discover the great resturant. While prices at many resturants in Honolulu can be pretty high I thought this was a top value compared topricing. Locate at a working fishing dock -you can't get any fresher food. The selections are a good assortment of just caught fish and they do have nice dinners for... More

Perhaps the best meal we ate on Oahu. Great fresh Poke, simply, delicious preparations on daily catch, great atmosphere, and dedicated, knowledgeably young servers who knew the dishes well and were very attentive.

After being away from the islands another year, we met with friends at Nico's for good fresh local fish and great ambiance, local style. Set on alongside the pier, with fishing boats and the sunset, we dined outside to enjoy great conversation and the island breeze. Our server was attentive and friendly, our food came quickly, and was delicious. The... More

We like the location, being on the pier. They have outside dining, very casual, and delicious fresh fish that is very affordable. They also serve lunch. This restaurant is always busy.

If you didn't know this restaurant was here, you would pass right by it. The fish is so fresh and tasty. We had the catch of the day and it comes with rice and macaroni salad or a green salad. We bought some poke in the market next door so we could have a late night snack. The poke was... More

Honolulu doesn't have many waterfront restaurants but Nico's is one of the few (if you count dining on a pier waterfront). Get there early as no reservations are taken & the crowds come early too. We dined inside and the shade was down, preventing us from enjoying the view of the fishing boats. It is pleasant to sit outside, if... More
