Fresh-fresh-fresh! The best fish tacos in Kona. Sit outside and people watch or just enjoy the view of the ocean. You will not find a better place for great fish tacos!

We had a nice meal with friends overlooking the beach. Food was good and love seating outside. We have been there before and go back when ever we can.
