Found this small restaurant in a shopping center in town. Looked up reviews and was rated with 4 stars. Nothing fancy inside, pretty much order you choice of food at the counter, sit down at a table , and wait for your food to come out. All five of us had some form of fish dinners and everyone said the... More

We had lunch here. Some ordered the fish taco's 2 huge fish taco's. I ordered the coconut scrimp that was excellent, especially with the sauce. Caution if you order the French fries make sure you have other people to help you eat the huge basket.

We heard it being compared to Paia Fish Market which we love and wanted to try for ourselves. The dining area is indoors in a cozy and casual setting. The staff is extremely friendly and upbeat. We had one order of fish tacos and a fish and chips. They both come with a combination of 2 types of fish: ono... More

The food here was great! Their fish tacos are the best! My family and I went for both lunch and dinner, and it was very delicious.

Absolutely the best fish taco I have ever eaten. Wife had fish and chips and was pleased with her choice. There might be about a 15 minute wait after placing the order but that gives you time to get your drink, napkins, flatware and condiments with extra time to get to know the other people who might ask if they...

We loved the fish tacos so much we went for dinner there twice. When you order the tacos you get two so they can be shared. The tacos are 7 layers - two types of fish, mango salsa and slaw made with coconut milk. The service and staff was friendly.

It took awhile to get our food, but it was worth the wait. The fish was fresh and delicious! Will definitely come again.

I wanted to get some great seafood on our trip, but a lot of the better-rated places with seafood are incredibly expensive. This place was a great find. The staff is friendly and helpful, the dishes come out quickly, the food tastes amazing, and the check doesn't give you a heart attack. Wish we had found this place sooner..

Thank Allyce Z
