“Great place out of tourist area”

Amazing food! Freshly caught off the harbor and cooked to perfection. My boyfriend had the special of the day, swordfish, and I had fish and chips. Great atmosphere to watch the World Cup.

“Food was good, but I got sick!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2014

The food was quite good. I had the furikake ahi and it was good. The portion was quite large. I ended up getting sick later that night, but I think it was from the lava flow drink that I had. One of my friends also felt sick from the drink. Too bad.

“Great food & value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2014 via mobile

Excellent Poke Bowls under $10 (Deli side only) Food portions are large & quality of fish, produce & proteins is excellent. Takes a few minutes to figure the place out but very impressed with how it all flows.

“great fresh fish”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2014

Nico's was recommended by a local girl in Waikiki. Great choice. Down at the pier, it is a great location. Food was very good and reasonable for what you received. Great mahi mahi for lunch and my wife had a fish with a wonderful mango sauce. Many local recipes. We really loved it, kids too. You should go if you are looking a not to touristy, fast seafood spot

“A Must Go for Dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014

This place is amazing. Busy, efficient and friendly with great food at reasonable price. You cannot ask for more. If you go, have some of their well prepared freshly caught fish.
