My sister and I drove all the way from the Mauna Lani on the recommendation from our guide book. Once you get past the funky storefront appearance you're rewarded by a pleasant atmosphere and wonderfully prepared food with local ingredients. The portions were generous. Thank you Ingrid & Morgan. Your restaurant was worth the drive and we hope to return... More

Mi's was outstanding Italian Restaurant. I am from San Francisco and felt that the dinner at Mi's was equal any Italian Restaurant here. Service was excellent. I highly recommend.

Lovely restaurant owned and run by a couple. He is a CIA trained chef. The food is outstanding. They have fresh gluten free options. I had gluten free bolognese that was outstanding. Tasted like homemade regular pasta. Two people had wonderful grass fed filets. The shrimp scampi appetizer was fresh and one of the best shrimp dishes ever.I didn't give... More

We were looking for a nice semi-formal meal for our family. The food was outstanding and probably the best meal we had on the island. Great place for celebrating the last night on the island.

We ate at Mi's on our first night in Hawaii. Since our Inn did not serve dinner, we had to find a local restaurant. My husband had the steak and I had the fish special. Both were wonderful. The restaurant is small, but we ate there on a Wednesday night and were immediately seated. The hostess was very polite, friendly,... More

While staying in the area we had Mi's recommended to us and we were very happy we took the recommendation. It is a small family run restaurant where they make their own bread and pasta. My wife had the grilled fish over mushroom risotto special and I had the pasta. Both were very good. We had a decent bottle of... More

If you are within half an hour of this place, it is worth getting in the car. I had the lasagna and thought I could only eat half, but between me and my husband, we finished it off. The flavors were fresh, mild, and perfectly blended. My husband had the ravioli and could not stop raving about all the cheese... More

Mi's is a very good selection for great food in an out of the way place. I've eaten there several times and have never been dissapointed with the food or service. The wine list is very good for such a small place. The only downside is the walkway to Mi's is not very handicap friendly, the ramp is a bit... More
