Excellent option for takeout plate lunch (it is take-out only). My wife and I picked up the three-piece (Ono and Toro) plate lunch for ~$13 and split it! Includes a small green salad, rice, and macaroni salad. If you want some entertainment, walk down the road to the little park and eat there - you will quickly have your own... More

Often overlooked and just across from the post office in Koloa. They offer fresh fish to take home and grill and then the plate lunch combo ready to eat. Our favorite is the Kailua pork or the Lau lau sometimes they offer various other hot entrees but usually just a few and if you don't get there early enough they... More

Read about this place on TripAdvisor. Picked up some fresh shrimp & swordfish to grill back at the condo. Reasonably priced & good selection of fresh fish.

We visit the Koloa fish market regularly during our Kauai vacations - simply the best! Cash only. Seared ahi, smoked marlin, and plate lunches are among our favourites. I recommend trying any/everything!!

We come here every year. At least once or twice we buy fresh fish here and barbecue it. Get here early as the sell out whatever was caught that day and selection gets limited later in the day. Always fresh! Not inexpensive.

Awesome plate lunch and Poke here. Definitely get the sweet potato haupia square for dessert. No good seating nearby to eat, but we took it back to our vacation rental to enjoy.

Nuff said. Best poke in Koloa. Also get the seared ahi. The plate lunch is good too. It's a small shack but you won't be disappointed.

Family members shared this was their favorite Poke place on the island and boy were they right! We ordered Korean and Spicy ahi poke. Both were very good, fresh and altho labeled spicy, it wasnt. We will visit the market again while here

Based on the guide book reviews and critic reviews stopped in to pick up lunch one day and was totally worth it. First, blink and you will miss it. It's a tiny store front with a small cooler displaying the arrange of fish. We did a sampling... bento box with spicy tako, Korean style and the recommended avocado as well... More
