Good food.

The tuna was fresh, tasted great and reasonably priced. The rest of my family enjoyed their meals as well.

This is a nice place----- there deli has by far the best option in Honolulu for fresh fish and poke....so if you want to take out some good poke bowls go here! The restaurant although you can sit outside which is lovely---if you sit inside it is very noisy. The food in the restaurant ----was ok. We had calamari and... More

Okay, so I have lived on Oahu for 3 years now and the day I landed my friends picked me up and took me to Nicos. Thank you friends. This is one of my favorite places and one of the restaurants I always take friends or family when they visit. They have such good poke- if you haven't tried it... More

First trip had fish tacos. Dry fish horrible cabbage and cardboard tortilla. Nothing else in the tacos. Just bland dry dog food. Second trip. Two open tables. Told some ly about why we couldn't sit there. Waited 15 minutes at the bar and they then sat us at the same table that had been open all the time. Just don't... More

Fastest service I've ever seen. Spicy edamame was a delicious appetizer. I had a ribeye steak with fries. Both were great, the steak was cooked perfectly. Creme brûlée cheesecake was very good also. $70 for two people.

We really enjoyed the food at Nico's at Pier 38, and is well priced, but why the styrofoam? It would be nice to see a restaurant that served it's food solely in take out containers to use something more biodegradable. Probably won't eat here again for awhile just to ease my conscious on being destructive to the environment when surrounded... More

Landed in Honolulu and went straight to Nico's for lunch. Fresh seafood with local flavors. Fried Akule, seared tuna, and chicken Katsu. Just missed the live music. Wish they didn't charge for drink refills.

We went to this restaurant because it was featured on Diners, Drive Ins and Dives. The food was ok, nothing to write home about. It has a great location and the staff were very friendly. I'm not sure I would go back.

The place is mobbed with all kinds of people. Decent fresh fish sandwiches but long on carbs and sugars. The French fries were great and my fish was very tasty, but drowning in sauce. It's a loud place, and meals are self pick up from the counter with styrofoam containers. The dining room is open air so in the summer,... More
