everytime i land on Kauai I stop here for their poke - which is raw ahi tuna in delicious oils, onions, seaweed, or tamari. And the smoked marlin can be fantastic! Great prices on fish, a must stop once landing, then you have great fish for a meal.

There is no place to eat your meal and you are ordering from a fresh fish market. WHO CARES! The plates are about $10 and you get some super fresh fish and rice and salad. I had the ahi the first time and we went back and got the ono. Both were flaky, tender, and tasty. Just find a spot to picnic and you have the perfect meal. Don't Miss It!

If you visit Kaua'i this is a must. Right across the street from Walmart. They have a lunch plate special everyday for $10.95, fish, rice and Mac salad. Good size serving and very good. This is a fish market so their is no place to sit, I just turn on the AC and eat in the car. Poke is good, but the Pono market in Kapa'a is better.

Wonderful-we never miss this place-coming into Kauai or leaving-just across from Wal-mart-not far from the airport. Small and always busy, everything is de-LISH! Excellent service-fast and they encourage sampling. Very economical but they aren't open for dinner.
Don't miss it-you will be glad you didn't!

We asked about a place where locals go for good fish. Oh, was this the right place to go. It is a seafood market with take out food. We had tasty fish tacos and took them to a park to eat. Lots of different choices for take out already prepared as well as will make items you order. We'll be back again.
