When you come to Fete, always listen carefully to the long list of specials, which will usually highlight a local fish and whatever the chef’s been obsessed with recently. That’s including, but not limited to, pork chops from pigs raised at Kualoa Ranch (a.k.a. the set of movies like Jurassic Park and Jumanji). The core menu features dishes like carbonara with Portuguese sausage and an excellent Korean fried chicken sandwich, and you’ll definitely want to stick around for the housemade Rocky Road ice cream. Fete is one of the few restaurants on Oahu that’s open from lunch all through dinner and is truly excellent for all meals, but given its small, Brooklyn-meets-Hawai‘i-meets-French bistro space, it’s best suited for date nights and small groups.
