Our concierge recommended Uncle Bo's as a good local spot. My fiends and I ordered a slew of tapas/pupus - spicy tuna salad, boca rota, Bo's nachos, pig sliders - all of which were delicious and plentiful. Our waitress was fun and attentive, and the beignets were amazing! Also, the atmosphere was fun. Only downside was the paid parking across... More

My wife, kids (22 & 16) and I ate here during our vacation based upon the Trip Advisor reviews of past patrons and the fact that it is a common choice from "locals". In short, we were not let down. My wife enjoyed a grilled chicken salad and my son had a two-topping pizza that he commented was fantastic (it... More

We went on the recommendation of the young fellow at the front desk and trip advisor which rarely steers us wrong--not this time! A room devoid of charm and food for people who don't really care about quality and would accept quantity. Not as expensive as some places but if you are here for only a short while I would... More

Off the beaten track. Very popular. Suggest reservations. Pay parking lot across the street$2 for two hours. Unpretentious from the outside. Contemporary dining room and bar. Back room a little quieter. Whole dining experience was a food fest. Kaluha pork rice and cheesy breadsticks with prime rib are a must. Drinks have a generous pour. Dessert hobos a must with...

You think that for 28USD you get something special, that is a wrong expectation. You get rather home-food, but at abnormal quantity you are not able to eat, so half of it goes down with garbage. Would say it to be waste of money.

We had a fine meal, trying out appetizers, pasta and pizza. All were very good, and the portions were enough we took leftovers back to the hotel for the next day lunch. The price was about average for a Honolulu sit down meal. All in all, recommended

The food was delicious. I ordered the Boca Rota and the Dynamite Shrimp based on other reviews and it did not disappoint. Both dishes were outstanding and big portions. We didn't order an entree because the appetizers were so good. Don't let the outside appearance fool you. This is a hidden gem!

We read the reviews and expected distinctive food but perhaps spotty service. We were pleased that both were top notch. My wife and I shared appetizers and a dessert: crab cakes, cajun seared ahi, should poke and the "Hobo" beignets. Each had a distinctive aspect to the preparation. Portions were larger than we expected. Beverages were the house version of... More
