Just had the most magical meal! We grilled Big Eye Ahi that we purchased from Koloa Fish Market. Hands down the best fresh fish we have ever purchased anywhere! Bring cash - they don't accept credit/debit/checks.

Always go for the poke and fresh fish. Tried the marinade and it was awesome with the yellow fin tuna.

Although the name implies that this is a fish market, which it is, it also has fabulous plate lunches. They are so large that my wife and I usually split one. You have a choice of three entrees or a combo plate that has half portions of two different entrees. Plus they add a green salad, a scoop of potato/mac... More

Yum! It's not a sit down restaurant- you order and take your fish to go- but there's some tables nearby and the fish itself was excellent. Spouse had the seared ahi (so good!) I tried several different kinds of ahi poke. Would definitely go back.

This place has me dreaming about poke from back home. Get an incredible plate lunch or a la carte poke/fresh seafood. We ordered a couple poke flavors, side of rice and the seaweed salad and ate outside in the rain and it was my favorite food of the trip. The avocado poke will ruin you for all other seafood in...

Bring your cash to this tiny takeout-only place. You will be glad you came, if you love fresh & raw fish. I had the plate lunch with pork lau lau, lomi lomi salmon side dish, ahi poke side, and a noodle side. The fish was very fresh and prepared so well. I could eat an entree-sized portion of the lomi...

We got poke here 3 days in a row. They offer several varieties. Cash only. Other seafood as well and a few snacks. Very busy and rightly so. The little town is interesting too and a grocery is next door if you are doing your own meals.
