Seafood Restaurant

“Great stop for a delicious lunch in Hilo. Eclectic mix of island and continental cuisine using locally sourced ingredients. Try the fresh catch, pulled pork sandwich or their creative and tasty wood-fired pizzas. Also open for dinner but prices get a little crazy after 6pm.”

“No trip to Hawaii is complete without at least one really great poke bowl. This delightful fresh fish specialty has been a staple in the islands as long as anyone can remember but more recently has been stealing the show at hip eateries across the globe. Suisan Fish Market offers an array simple, fresh and authentic varieties in an extremely laid-back setting, right in the heart of historic Hilo town. Make your selection at the counter, then grab a table outside or do like the locals do and walk down to one of the picnic tables or benches at Liliuokalani Park. A delicious an unmistakably local experience!”
