Nice place for a private party

We went to a private birthday party. The room was nice and the food was set up as a buffet. The was room for dancing . You couldn't help but remember how Cafe O Lei started as a tiny but popular lunch spot in Wailuku. They have had locations in Maalaea, Wailuku, Napili and Lahaina that have... read more

Cafe O Lei at the Dunes Golf Course was the first of the group. I think it is still the best, for both food and ambiance. The setting is very nice, with both indoor and some outdoor seating. Unlike the Kihei location, the tables have some space between them, and the view of the golf course and the West Maui... More

Located just off the Kuihelani Highway and with views of the Maui Lani Golf course it is a must see when on Maui . We all ordered various things off the dinner menu and all were happy with the presentation... More

After landing at Maui's Kahului Airport in the morning (20 May) and some shopping nearby we were hungry when we started our drive across the island to our final destination Kaanapali. Luckily we came across the turnoff from the main road to the Maui Lani Golf Course and decided to try their food options at the club house. What a... More

The service was very good and friendly. Food portions were generous and delicious. We had the macadamia nut crusted chicken. It was the best chicken we have ever had at a restaurant. Prices were very reasonable. Definitely would recommend.

Who would have thought that a restaurant at a golf club would be one of the best priced places around. Very good sized plates, great prices, and good food. My family of four had lunch and it was less than $35.00!

This has become our favorite restaurant in Kahului! You can't beat their fish lunch special on the lanai looking at the mountain! Delicious and picture perfect.
