Decided to take a break from the tourists on Waikiki and found this wonderful restaurant. Well worth getting away from the hotels and corporate restaurants on the strip to enjoy something that is authentic, fun, and amazing food! Staff were friendly, bartender was wonderful, prices are reasonable.

It's 2017. Reservation system is only via telephone or email. We tried to book a reservation for a Saturday night for 9 people and despite calling twice (no answer) and sending an email 5 days before the date, when we finally got through via telephone two days before date, the restaurant was full. It's 2017. OpenTable. Online reservations custom made.... More

Uncle Bo's Pupu Bar and Grill has an unassuming exterior and a hip/trendy interior with GREAT food and cocktails. With no reservations, we waited about thirty-five minutes for a table for four - worth the wait. A local recommended it to us, and it was our favorite meal in Honolulu.

Our taxi driver told us about this place - we hate dining at chain restaurants and always seek out local fare when possible. Nice large portions, non-Waikiki gouging on cocktails, attentive staff. I have a shellfish allergy so the waitress had the manager come over to discuss what I could have off the menu as well as other items they... More

Incredible food, incredible local atmosphere, very great evening. A little out of the way but we went via Uber and it was worth it. Can't wait to go back.

Great vibe to this local hotspot. The food is more comfort than fine dining but you MUST HAVE the taro beignets. Most delicious!

Too much goodness on the menu. 1st of all make a reservation. Especially if u want to eat after 7 or on a weekend! Favorites Boca Rota (amazing!!) I get it with chicken as I don't eat red meat but it's to die for! I love the crab salad too. The hobos dessert is sent from heaven (beignets Hawaiian style... More

Fantastic food. Great menu. Something for everyone. We tried a few of the entree dishes and all were delicious. Be careful not to order your mains until you are nearly ready for them. Our mains arrived when we were only half way through our entree and we saw that this happened to people around us. They took it back till... More

We had a great time with a large group. Food was good but came at us with the fire power of a semi automatic. No time to breath or catch up. 12 dishes all at once. Would have been better to come slowly. The wall with the mirror has a great story. Be sure to ask.

Huge portion sizes and delicious food. I sat at the bar because it had an opening and the bar tender took good care of me, though I wasn't drinking. I had the fresh fish of the day Chang Mai style. It was hands down the best meal I had during my visit.

Thank Jessica F
