    You know that saying, patience is a virtue? Expect to test that saying when you lunch here. It's busy as hell on most days, but the food is worth the wait.

    The furikake ahi is the traditional pick, but the daily specials are always worth a try. Read more

    If you don't like going to Nico's for lunch because it's too crowded, try going for breakfast. The fish & eggs and fish omelette are both super good, and their loco mocos are the best I've ever had...

    The new Nico's is bigger and better! We recommend the poisson cru, a Tahitian version of poke marinated in lime juice and coconut milk. It's so ono! -Dining, April 2012

    Not sure why they labeled this French restaurant. It's mostly plate lunches and seafood. Very delicious.

    Furikake Ahi and Loco Moco are pretty good. Fish & chips plate is probably the worst I've had on the island. Poke is so-so; much better at fresh catch

    This place really fills up. Go before 11:30 for best chance at finding an open table. I love the Furikake Ahi and the Deep Fried Ahi Belly and usually the catch of the day.
