We have eaten here actually four times. Two times for lunch and two times for dinner. I have been really pleased with the service all four times. I think you get a really good value for your money with the lunch prices and food. Dinner is very good but I do better with what I like with the lunch menu.

We ate at Cafe O'Lei four times while in Maui. The food was always excellent, but the onion soup is to die for. And the Haleakala Sunrise from the bar is superb. Very reasonable prices for Maui.

Walking distance from our hotel. Food was awesome. Very busy place…was recommended to us by our shuttle driver. We actually went twice for dinner. I'd go again

Nice menu selection. The plate of the day is a good meal at a low price. Busy at lunch; can be noisy when the restaurant is full. Locals, as well as tourist like Cafe O'Lei in Kihei.

This was right across the street from our condo so we had to give it a try. I had the lettuce wraps for lunch and my husband had the macadamia crusted chicken sandwich. They were both great.

My wife and I often go to Cafe O'Lei for lunch. Their plate lunch specials are very reasonably priced and delicious. Dinner is good too but we have found that the atmosphere is a little too vibrant for our tastes. Others may find it "exciting".

Great value and fresh sushi among many other local favorites. When in Kihei, I don't miss an opportunity to stop in.

So noisy today at lunch we could hardly hear the server! I had the macadamia crusted chicken sandwich. It was mediocre, bread was dry and chicken wasn't flavourful. My dining partner had the turkey sandwich. Before ordering the sandwich we inquired if the turkey breast was from a roasted turkey or was it simply processed deli turkey roll. The server... More

We ate here on a busy evening and it was quite noisy but it certainly didn't affect our dining experience in a negative way. We tried the tasty onion soup and had the blackened mahi mahi which was delicious. The food presentation was very good and the meal came with a bun, salad, and fresh vegetables. The service was fine... More
