Huge portions, very tasty food, inattentive server

We stopped for an early lunch at 11:30am. The service was extremely slow b/c we had a very inattentive server and the restaurant was not even remotely busy at the time. However, the food almost made up for it! Huge portions (probably too much food!), but the Mac Nut Chicken Sandwich and Brie... read more

We love both of the Cafe O'lei restaurants in Maui. This trip we have had lunch at both of them and our favorite is the macadamia nut crusted fish which we had to ask for and pay a dollar extra! It's definitely worth it!

My husband heard about this restaurant from another visitor to Maui. We decided to check it out since they raved so much about it. What a pleasant surprise it was indeed! It is the restaurant at the Dunes Maui Lani Gold Course. We expected golf course type of food, but the quality of the meal was much above that expectation.... More

Golf on Maui & treat yourself to consistently great food-one of the Cafe O'Lei restaurants. Packed all the time. Great place to eat, see friends, golf course & the beautiful green mountains of Maui. Dining inside & on patio with the lovely breezes. Lunch specials for $12. & under. Lots of food on the plate. Yummy!

Tasty food, good staff, nice view of mountains and course, close to the Kahului airport which was really convenient for our family vacationing. Ate here twice.

I have multiple dietary restrictions. I tried explaining what I can & can't have to the server and didn't get anywhere. She finally suggested I talk with the chef. Brilliant call.. Megan Tinao to the rescue. This woman came to my seat, asked what ingredients I can have & made me a perfect dinner. I don't go out as often... More

We have been here twice for dinner. The wait times are not too long and the food is great. The prices are pretty good. Most people wouldn't consider a good restaurant at a golf course. You will be pleasantly surprised.

Went here with a friend for lunch and was surprised how busy it was. Maui is a small island and I always look for places not so crowded with tourists only. A mix of locals and tourists is best, as both look for good food and good prices, which you find here. My friend had the special- they have 2... More

I have been to Cafe O'Lei at the Dunes several times over the last few years. I am always disappointed in the food. The steak and burgers are OK. The Ceasar salad -- one of my favorite go-to's in any restaurant is sub par, and the French onion soup was nothing to get excited about. The Ceasar salad was very... More

The restaurant is located in the beautiful Dunes Golf Course club house in Kahului, Maui. The setting is outstanding with a tropical golf course providing the view and action. The menu offers an outstanding selection of cuisine, much based on local dishes including fish. The kitchen staff consistently prepares outstanding, great tasting meals which are presented with pronounced eye appeal.... More
