Nico’s Pier 38 is Honolulu’s premier fish restaurant. Launched in 2004, we feature fresh fish line-caught by Hawaii’s local fleet, hand-picked daily by Nico and our expert fish buyers. And the food we serve is locally grown and sourced whenever possible.
Started by two local fishermen and the young French born/chef owner Nico Chaize, our restaurant was designed to showcase Hawaii’s fishing industry. We lend our support to our world class and stringently managed, local fishery, bringing you closer to our boats, our fishermen and our unique Honolulu auction where the premium fish that we buy and serve come from.
Nico’s Pier 38 began as a pioneering, tiny plate lunch place serving auction fresh fish at a great price and local island favorites with Nico’s international flair. We have grown to more than four times our original size. The restaurant now buys more fish than any other restaurant, which allows us to still offer fresh fish at reasonable prices.
We offer breakfast, lunch, dinner and live entertainment. We have a full bar, outdoor lanai and a fish market with fresh fish, pokes + bowls, Hawaiian food and Nico’s Pier 38 special dressings. Don’t forget to stop by our custom store for a tshirt or souvenir before you leave!
