We got to Uncle's, grabbed a table, then noticed the prices went up, a lot! After a couple of minutes perusing the menu, we decided since Nico's was right next door to Uncle's we'd walk over there. Wow, the line! Nico's is a very popular place..reasonably priced, but be careful...if the menu doesn't say "Fresh" next to the dish, the fish may be "previously frozen" or at least taste that way.

We tried the Grilled Ahi Sandwich which was ok, tasted like previously frozen fish. We also tried the fresh catch which was Swordfish in a creamy caper sauce, this was very good. Check out the photo above from Nico's website...the fish wasn't even that big, it was skinner, a bit longer, but we sure didn't get that much. The french fries were ok...we've had better at other restaurants. The photo to the left is also from Nico's website and again, the fish wasn't even that big. We also got our plate with a scoop of brown rice.
All in all, Nico's is a good place to try. If you're trying this place, go either early or later, we got there at their peak lunch hour...so we waited a while for our food. The $9.95 we paid for the fresh catch plate was worth it. If you're visiting Hawaii, this is a nice place to get a local plate...but we don't recommend some of the other non-seafood items. We've tried the loco moco once and it was just ok.
