Great little stop for a quick bite. Had the fish tacos and they were awesome. Corn tortillas, slaw and guac were perfect compliments to the yummy fresh fish. Friendly and fast service. Worth the stop!

We came here twice during our 5 day stay in Kauai. Great place to grab a quick bite. The fish and shrimp are so fresh. Tried the tacos the first time and burritos the second time. Yum!

Don't expect ambiance here, unless watching and fighting off chickens is your entertainment. The fish tacos had plenty of fish, opa this time with slaw and avocado. The sides of rice and beans are just ok. 2 tacos with sides runs about $14. Service is...More

The tacos were fresh and delicious. Nice shaded tables. The wandering roosters kinda got on my nerves.
