Ok so it's a pretty bold claim but I'm going to go out on a limb and say it. Tried various places near Princeville and Hanalei and if you want a tasty fish taco with great flavor. The rest of the fare is pretty standard for a Mexican place but this is THE place to go for fish tacos. I... More

Great breakfast! Didn't get the breakfast burrito but they are big and look delicious! I had the huevos and was great! Would have loved to go back but so many great places to eat on north shore!

Food was great. We had the chicken and cheese quesadillas and fish tacos. Everything was very flavorful, but we did wait about 45 minutes for those two items.

Excellent fish tacos, and other Mexican food assortments. Friendly counter person who brings your order to you while you sit out in the food court. Musicians perform in the court area. Very comfortable setting. Food prices are reasonable.

Pretty good tacos. The breading on the fish taco was a little heavy and tastes like the oil needs changed but overall a tasty taco and the steak taco was spot on. The guacamole was a little watery and lacked any pizzaz. The food came out very slow also. Slightly overpriced as well.

Don't waste your time and money here. Good for nothing place. We like trying foods of different cultures but this eating place is a shame for the Mexican food, which is very colourful and tasty.

Looking for a quick bite on Friday night? Not much of a chance in Princeville. We checked a couple of places and ended up at Frederico's. Good local establishment, flavors are great for being in the middle of the pacific. Don't be in a hurry, everyone is friendly around here. No A/C in the room so the porch outside of... More

Tiny little take out place in Princeville Center. Very busy at dinner time and the food comes out pretty slow. But the food is really good here, at least the quesadillas are. Everything on the menu sounded good, but I can't comment on the other items. We got our food to go, but there are also tables outside in the... More

A small take out and sit at the tables outside kind of joint. The food and service was OK - tasty and homemade. Nothing fancy. A family could get full here with little $.
