Food was ok. Blood Mary's were great! Service was marginal, not enough servers. The atmosphere was great open and friendly. Able to watch the hussle and bustle of downtown!

Somehow, I seem to write good reviews if the beer and the atmosphere are good. Such is this place. If I want GREAT food, I stay hoe as both my wife and I are great cooks. Nevertheless, when we travel on vacation, we are looking for 1. At least very good food. 2. Very good atmosphere. 3. Great beer (for... More

Came here only because the place we really wanted to go was closed. Extensive menu selection was a plus, but that was about it. Our order took 45 minutes to come out and my hungry kids were getting restless by the minute. Our waitress forgot my daughter's fries (but brought out a side of fries after), didn't put my toppings... More

Cool location street in town, open to the street from this second story place. As I had read online, it is food, far from anything to rave about. My husbands giant burrito had pork with a lot of fat which made it challenging to eat. My Cobb salad arrived without avocado so I asked for it since it was supposed... More

No surprises here, rather large place and menu with everything from fish to burgers to tacos. We had the seafood pasta which was absolutely delicious and a sizzling fajita which was ok. Would have ranked 4 stars if waitresses at bar had paid more attention.

We got a table for 6 by the street, so the view was great. The service was good on a Wednesday at 5:30pm. The Ahi burrito was bland, the tacos were mediocre. My 9 year old loved the Monster Burrito. The seafood platter was good if you like fried food. The coconut shrimp was very good. Portions were large. I... More

This place is just solid food. You won't walk away saying it was the best meal, you ever had, but you won't ever be disappointed. If you're in Kapaa, it's a good choice.

This place is kind of a hangout for my family, but I remember the food being better last time we visited. I do love sitting by the open windows people watching in Kapaa, so I will always stop in for a beverage or two, but the food is not the main draw.

Olympic Café is on the second floor of a building in Kapaa with easy parking behind the building. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner and we tried all three. My breakfast favorite was the mac nut banana pancakes. Huge portion and delicious! The best bet for lunch and dinner is anything with the Kahlua pork. I can also recommend the... More
