Came back for seconds !!!

My wife and I ate here twice on this trip. The food was excellent and HUGE portions. The first night I had the Onion Soup and a Kalua pork Flatbread. I had 1/2 the flatbread left to take back. My wife had the Short Rib and it was a SLAB of beef easily 12 to 16 ounces. All the food... read more

Absolutely a classy restaurant. Nondescript exterior hidden away upstairs above shops in downtown Kihei. Best short rib meat dinner in Maui. Great deserts. Sit by the brick oven and watch the fresh rolls and Maui Onion soup being naked. Love the food and presentation. Very attentive staff. Not that pricey for the quality,

Our family of five including grandparents and a 5 year old had a wonderful dinner last week. The place was well lit with nice decor. The Kula salad greens that came with with our entrees were quite tasty and the server even brought a small plate for our son (which he didn't touch though). Our son enjoyed his cheese pizza... More

We went back here 3 times during our stay. We usually arrived early for dinner. The poke stuffed calamari was amazing. As was the Parmesan crusted chicken and the honey roasted pork. The prices were very reasonable too for such good seafood!

First time to Maui and needed to refuel. Lunch time was busy so food a little slow but tasty. Going with the specials made price less and the server was attentive.

Our family of four went there for dinner our first night in Maui. Every thing we had was good but nothing was spectacular. Calamaris were good, prime rib was cooked as requested, the blackened mahi mahi had a little too much pepper for our taste, and the batter for the shrimp tempura with mahi mahi had good flavour although we...

This is my favorite place to have lunch when I'm visiting Kihei.they always have a lunch plate special for $7.95 or a fish plate for$11.95. I come straight from the beach and sit at the large u shaped bar. Lots of local people come to have lunch here. You can also order take out and picnic on the beach with... More

This was one of our best meals while in Maui. Its a nice restaurant and we were probably under dressed coming straight from the beach. But the food and service were great.

Always a line up for breakfast. You order inside and wait for your food outside with the food no better than any other restaurant we went to. Not cheaper not better but always crowded. Couldn't figure it out.
