Love the food here. Favorite is the Lindsey! Two eggs. Over fried rice and Polynesian sausage. Many other great dishes. Service is great. Lots of food for the money, perfect for an active day in Kauai.

I love local Hawaiian places, and Ono Family restaurant didn't disappoint! I had a wonderful, fresh ahi sandwich that was preceded by a lovely garden salad. The food arrived quickly, and the fish was excellent. The salad greens tasted like they had just been picked, and the dressings were nice too. My husband had the tuna melt, which was nicely... More

As long as you are ok with the "Hawaii" pace, you won't be disappointed with the unique menu, and the good tasting breakfast. Traffic was bumper to bumper coming and going, but was good and a nice experience. Afterwards, we walked the small quaint town. Love the area!

We were looking forward to having coconut pancakes with coconut syrup in Kauai and we got delicious ones here! They were tasty; filled with bananas and chopped macadamia nuts. The restaurant was filled with a mix of tourists and locals so expect a bit of a wait if you go early in the morning as it is a popular place.... More

Was recommended by the HGI and I asked for a local "hole in the wall" with great food place. Well it was a hole in the wall. I would say it seems more like a good breakfast place, but didn't enjoy lunch. At 1pm they had no more fish and the service was horrible. Food was OK, but nothing great.... More

We have had breakfast here 4 of our 6 days and we're always surprised on how consistently wonderful the food and smoothies are! We have also gone for shaved ice! Ohhh we wish we had this at home!

Macadamia nut ice cream is off the charts amazing! My husband and I each tried different kinds of shaved ice flavors: pineapple, peach, kiwi, tiger's blood, ginger, and haupia. Highly recommend this place! You get a ton for $5 each and it is absolutely an amazingly delicious treat!
