“Wonderful ambiance and excellent food”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

For a special treat, don't miss this place! I had the Ono special, served on purple sweet potatoes with a wonderful sauce, just fabulous. The staff is very friendly and welcoming, the prices are on the higher side, but well worth it.

“Great View, friendly service, nice meal!”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

We celebrated our 30th anniversary at Huggo’s with friends and had a delightful meal. We were greeted by friendly faces and sumptuous aromas upon entering the dark wood dining room. The wasabi dusted fritto misto was bit heavily breaded, but crispy-good especially after bathing it in a wash of the duo sauces. We ordered the Kailua Bay cioppino with lobster tail, shrimp, clams, saffron, and tomato fennel broth and Huggo’s signature teriyaki steak. The cioppino, in a rich red tomato sauce with substantial amounts of seafood, held a surprise—asparagus—that blended with the seafood like a close relative and the teriyaki steak, cuddled in a sweet marinade, was as tasty as it was tender. A nice bottle of Sauvignon Blanc worked well with each dish. Though the food and service was very good, the most delightful treat of the evening was the breathtaking oceanfront view and sea breezes that swept across the restaurant throughout the meal. This is a busy place that almost hums with the hustle and bustle of the wait staff who lost track of us as we sat quietly gazing at the sea and enjoying the live entertainment. A little pricey, but not unusually high for the location and parking can be difficult but not insurmountable, Huggo’s is a real island gem and definitely worth a romantic and charming visit.

“Great Resturant”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

Good Food and service and great location. Prices are very high but we knew that. I was disappointed at the lack of choices for fish and/or seafood but what we got was very good.

Very good sandwiches...a chopped tuna grilled patty sandwich and a beef dip sandwich each served with a big basket of fries. Nice outdoor patio with good ocean view. Cost around $30 for the two lunches. Food was good but not exceptional.
