Off the Hook - a local restuarant at its best!

If you want something local and a little funky head to Uncle Bo's. The food is delicious and the vibe is fun. We ate there twice on our last vacation and even met Uncle Bo! Must trys include the Steamer Clams, and the Boca-Rota. ANd the Oyster Shooters are pretty darn good too.

This place is quite renown and therefore needs no introduction. We came here as a recommendation during the "Hole in the wall" food tour. We also read the positive reviews and decided we had to try it. We were not disappointed. In fact we were so impressed. Reservation is a must. Service was top notch. Smiling and helpful waitresses.

We were recommended this restaurant by the hotel. It was a walk from our hotel but the food was good, attentive waitress was lovely and great ambience. It was a restaurant that the locals eat at. We decided to try the pupus and had 4 between us. Very tasty. I would recommend this restaurant for those that want to get... More

OK, let me cut to the chase, and then my real review.... Thai style steamer clams.... Just get them.... Don't read the menu, don't ask any questions.... Just get them.... You are welcome. OK, now the real review. From the outside it is very unimpressive.... On the border of scary. Parking is right next door, but will cost you $5... More

We ate here twice on a visit to Honolulu. Off the Waikiki strip, about 20 minute walk from Diamond Head end of Waikiki. We never got past the appetiser page, ordered several seafood appetisers each time. Very well prepared, great sauces and stews. Seafood Trap was great, as were tunas and shrimp. Calamari was a bit disappointing, wok fried was... More

In a recent visit to Honolulu I decided to wander off the beaten path and visit this restaurant. Walked in with no reservation, friendly greeting and was whisked away to the bar where I chose to sit instead of waiting for a table. The cocktail and wine selection is extensive so is the menu. The restaurant is chic/bohemian/fun with great... More

The beverages were fabulous! The seafood was wonderful! We did not enjoy the beef at all - it was pretty awful. But, the wonderful beverages and seafood made up for it. Make a reservation ahead of time also. :D

This place is one of the best. Great food, perfect service and good atmosphere. We had 10 people and had the chefs choice 4 course family style dinner. This was awesome, we got to try 4-5 appetizers, 2 salads, 4 main courses and 3 deserts. Wow! Totally awesome. Bring your appetite and leave stuffed and satisfied.
