Hawaii's oceanic bounty makes it one of the best places for seafood and among the top dining destinations in the Aloha State is the award-winning Seaside Restaurant and Aqua Farm in Hilo, run by the Nakagawa family. Put this restaurant on your itinerary as here you will experience seafood at its best- fresh as caught and prepared using traditional techniques, favored by both locals and tourists since the early 1920s. In fact, their dishes like the Chinese style Moi, Macadamia crusted Mahi Mahi and fried Aholehole bring in loyal patrons even from outside the continental U.S. And all the magic happens in an awe-inspiring setting, on the edge of a 30-acre natural fishpond. The food, service and quality will certainly leave a mark. But the place gets pretty rammed for both lunch and dinner, so make sure you walk in well ahead of time.
