We ate here twice. Fantastic Ono and chips, and even better fish tacos. The latter some of the best ever. Good beer selection and fine service. Recommended by the local owner of a dive shop.

Every time we visit the big Island we eat at Quinn's. The Ono is wonderful as are the fish and chips - always fresh fish. There is a quiet little patio out on the back - you'd never know that you are so close to...More
