Chamorro, Japanese, Thai, German, and More

Attend any party on Guam, and you’ll find food at the heart of the celebration. Guam’s residents take their food seriously, which may be why you’ll find so many delicious restaurants on the island. Guam also doesn’t lack for variety when it comes to its culinary scene. You’ll find places serving everything from traditional Chamorro delicacies to Japanese, Korean, Chinese, Thai, Pacific Rim, and even German dishes.

If you also take your food seriously, use our guide below to explore the best of Guam’s restaurants, one by one:

Chamorro Fusion

A DeWitt Guam team favorite, Meskla is one of our team’s go-to spots for enjoying traditional Chamorro cuisine with a twist. (Meskla means “mix” in Chamorro.)

Try their Chamoru Chesa’ Platter to get a sampling of three traditional Chamorro offerings in one:

  • Kelaguen hafa – prepared like ceviche, but may use chicken, beef, or deer as the protein
  • Tinala’ katni – dried, cured beef often served with fina’denne’, a spicy dipping sauce
  • Hinetnon tapun – clam bake

Their barbecue chicken and ribs are also excellent—and come with the DeWitt Guam team’s stamp of approval!

Three Squares

Traditional Chamorro & International Favorites

If you want to try some traditional Chamorro dishes—like tinala’ katni and chicken estufao—but you’re not sure if your whole party shares your interest, head over to Three Squares. There, you’ll find a number of Chamorro favorites, plus a good variety of other dishes. Between items like fried chicken, teriyaki chicken, meatloaf, lasagna, and fish and chips, you’re sure to find something for everyone in your group.

Da Local Grindhouse

Traditional Chamorro

Big portions, traditional Chamorro cooking, and a friendly atmosphere all make Da Local Grindhouse a great stop. The beef kelaguen and the barbecue are both outstanding, and many say the food at Da Local Grindhouse reminds them of the food they ate growing up. Stop in for an authentic taste of Guam.

Pika’s Café

Locally-Inspired Cuisine

Focused on fresh, local ingredients, Pika’s Café shines at breakfast. Choose from a number of different varieties of eggs benedict, plus hearty wraps, egg dishes, French toast, or their version of the Hawaii classic, loco moco.

Korean Barbecue

When it’s time to tuck into some Korean-style barbecue, Sejong is your spot.

Chapter One


A good dumpling spot is something to treasure, and Chapter One fits the bill. Their soup dumplings and pan friend dumplings are as authentic as they are delicious. Stop by their new(ish) location in the Micronesia Mall food court. In addition to their handmade dumplings, you’ll also find delicious made-to-order dishes like braised pork belly and Sichuan pepper chicken.

When we told you the food scene on Guam was diverse, you might not have believed us. McKraut’s, Guam’s German Restaurant and Beer Garden, is the proof. At McKraut’s, another DeWitt Guam team favorite, you can order brats, jägerschnitzel, and apple strudel, plus a wide selection of European beers. If you’re more in the mood for traditional bar/pub fare, you can always grab a cheeseburger or spicy buffalo wings.

Mosa’s Joint

Traditional American and Mediterranean

It would probably take you a couple of years to work your way through the extensive menu at Mosa’s Joint. (There are 10 different burgers alone!) The restaurant largely offers traditional American bar fare, with appetizers like wings, fried oysters, and spinach-artichoke dip. You’ll also find some Mediterranean influence weaving its way through the offerings at Mosa’s. Their Greek Platter is a great choice if you want to try a dish in that vein.

PROA Restaurant

Pacific Rim

Offering what they call a “hafa adai” dining experience, PROA focuses on dishes from around the Pacific, with influences from Japan, Hawaii, Guam, and the mainland U.S.

Save room to order dessert from their in-house patisserie. The taro cheesecake is a stand-out favorite.

The Beach Restaurant and Bar

American/Pacific Rim

The menu at the Beach Restaurant and Bar is filled with solid bar staples like burgers, nachos, and barbecue. However, the real stars at this spot are the setting and the extensive cocktail menu. Relax right on beautiful Gun Beach with a mai tai, a margarita, or one of the restaurant’s signature cocktails, and you’ll see why this place is so popular. The Beach is also perfectly positioned to take in a gorgeous Guam sunset. Arrive early to secure your ideal spot.

Kai Japanese Restaurant

Sushi & Japanese

Before the pandemic, Hideto “Pancho” Yanase was operating two restaurants—the original Kai Japanese Restaurant and Tairyo Sushi. Ultimately, Yanase decided to consolidate the concepts and open a new Kai Japanese Restaurant that served the best of both establishments. At Kai Japanese, you’ll find traditional Japanese dishes, including items from their robatayaki grill, plus a full sushi menu. The cozy space is perfect for date night.
