Best variety of high quality fish used and nice selection of gourmet plate lunches. By far the most favorite is the salmon poke -- and i don't normally eat salmon.

I tried a different poke place every day while in Oahu. This was definetely the best. I picked 3 different "flavors", spent about $15 total and it was one of the best meals I had in a long time. It is not located in a touristy area, though it is close to a mall and not far from the main... More

My husband and I have never eaten raw fish before. The sweet lady at the counter helped us out and let us try many samples and gave us her recommendations for first timers. She was very helpful and kind. We had no idea what we were getting into but we got our food and it was phenomenal. Hands down our... More

This place needs to be ranked MUCH higher. Fresh Catch is a perfect title. We ate there 3x on this trip and every day it was the best Ahi. Soft as butter... This place is as casual as you get, but that is Hawaii. If you're looking for some fancy, overpriced tourist restaurant, this isn't your place. They have group... More

Although the restaurant itself is not a special inspiration, but so is the food. We had lunch there and got a wonderfully prepared fresh catch, as the restaurant name says. If you are looking for a super good meal, this is a very good place to go!

We are here 3 times in one trip. It's relatively was to get to if you are staying in Waikiki. The lines may be long but they go fast. I got the furikake seared and the salmon. These dishes were great every single time we went. It may be hard to find parking

The fresh ahi tuna and the many options and different flavors to choose from here. I ordered spicy poke and it didn't disappoint. I will recommend going to this little hideout.

I actually do not eat raw fish BUT all of my friends do and anytime I pick up convenient poki for parties or gatherings, my Fresh Catch poki is ALWAYS the first poki to run out. I get the salmon poki in the shoyu sauce and that is the first to go then the smoked taco poki. Never fail!

Excellent spicy ahi rice bowl. Limited parking and small seating area so maybe consider going at off times or doing take out.
