I just love this place! A reminder of one of my favorite places on Earth - Hawaii! The food is absolutely delicious, the staff is beyond friendly and helpful, and the soothing Hawaiian music puts me in my Zen mode for the rest of the day. The desserts are the sweet finish to a lovely, light meal. I recommend for... More

Papa Nalu is the tasty secret of Gulf Breeze. This was my first visit but definitely not my last. I had the Tuna Poke, Nalu sticks, Musubi, Kealoha bowl and for dessert the Dessert Lumpia. Everything was beyond delicious and had I more room, I would have eaten more! You should definitely plan a visit here! The food is unique... More

I visited Aloha Grill today and I was very pleased with the service, food,and price. I know that next time I am driving down the road and my family asks for food I will request Aloha Grill. I will definitely be going there again.

You can summarize the dining experience in one word "FRESH". All the food selections are truly made to order and fresh. It does seem odd to have a Hawaiian restaurant in a strip mall in Gulf Breeze, Florida but don't let that fool you the food is authentic and great. No matter what you select I am sure you will...

Food is healthy and good. Love the fish sandwich grilled and sweet potato fries. Best salad in town, you check off the order form what selections you want and they fix it to order.

Food here is good but nothing to write home about. The mahi tacos are a bit overpriced you are better off getting a plate or a Saiman to the max bowl. Wanted to try the lumpia but they were sold out

I have been here numerous times and am not ever disappointed. This is a very casual dining place, with friendly staff and a family atmosphere. I love the shrimp appetizer and the rice bowls are really good. I usually order chicken for the rice bowl. It doesn't have too much of an atmosphere, but the food keeps coming back. If... More

A wonderful experience for your taste buds. We've been here twice and loved it. Definitely should check out the Burger which they only serve on Saturday's, you won't be disappointed. It'll leave you impatiently waiting for next Saturday to get here so you can have another one.

I lived in Hawaii-- this is authentic!! I love the variety and freshness of the food, and we enjoy "returning to Oahu" (gastronomically at least ) every time we go.
