We received a recommendation from a local business owner to try the lunch at Cafe O'lei. We ordered the fish special which was served on a bed of rice and with a Cesar salad. Great choice. The fish was excellent and the portion for lunch was plenty. Lunch with drinks was a responsible cost and we would love to go... More

Came here based in TA reviews and a perusal of their menu, which to me was more interesting than places like Cuatro, also highly reviewed on TA. This was a good choice. They have a varied menu and also offer a wide selection of sushi and raw fish dishes. To try the max number of things I made a meal... More

Had lunch there - good prices for the island! We both had a fish dish - I had the grilled mahi with mango salsa and my hubby had the special that was in a dill cream sauce. Both came with rice. Good amount of menu items to choose from with good prices considering how expensive the meal prices are on... More

We loved this place. Top floor of a shopping center but don't let that concern you. Big menu and prices that are really good for that part of Maui. Can't go wrong.

Loved sitting at the bar in my swimsuit and wrap being served by an awesome bartender named Cat. The food is fast, yummy, and healthy portions for cheap cheap cheap. Beer on tap is local. This is our go-to lunch spot.

This restaurant was recommended by hotel staff. We were seated within 10 minutes without a reservation. Our server offered to accommodate our children with meals beyond the children's menu. Once we ordered, our dinner arrived very quickly. I had the Ahi and my husband had the mahi. We both thoroughly enjoyed our dinners.

Everyone recommended this place, and it did not disappoint. I had their macadamia crusted chicken breast, it was delicious. Their service was efficient and very friendly. It is located in Kihei, on the top floor of a plaza, so it is easy to miss. The drinks are good too. I had Georgia peach, and liked it. The best part is... More

A lot of options to choose from and very tasty. The restaurante appeared to be popular among locals and there was a (small) wait for dinner when we went on a Friday. Slightly on the expensive side for Kihei but everything we had was very good.
