Easy to overlook, but don't

Our family of 14 ducked into this restaurant for lunch, having just arrived on Maui. Despite the rude hostess we were seated promptly and looked after very well by our waiter. The food was really good and the prices reasonable. The plate lunch special was outstanding.

They have the best salads, fish... everything you might order. Beautiful bar. Classy. Great place for business. It is up a flight of stairs but it makes it even better. Not for the view - for great food and discussion.The staff is just tremendous!

The French Onion soup is to die for! The best I've ever had. My next favorite is the Papaya Salad..it comes with shrimp, but I order mine without. This place is always busy, so that says something right there. A must if you are staying in Kihei or close by.

Yes, from the outside, nothing to like. Once inside, you will be happy you found this place. Great menu, nice,pretty, attentive staff, great fish prepared and presented well. We recommended this place to everyone we met. A little more upscale in atmosphere but not on price.

We spent our last night on Maui at this restaurant. Even though we had no reservations we were seated within 10 minutes. Service was wonderful and our dinners were delicious and very well presented.

We loved this restaurant 2 and 4 years ago but I think the quality has dropped significantly. I would probably try again but I hope they get back the greatness it once had. It used to have great food for quality and fair prices. The food was just average this time. Sorry Cafe O'lei... I just want you to come... More

Reasonable prices. A bit too loud. Difficut to hear each other. My wife enjoyed the Kahalua pork. I had a really good shrimp salad. One of our friends had a Seafood combo.

This is a good place to escape the more trendy, and pricey, restaurants just south at the resorts in Wailea. Café O'lei is on the main drag (South Kihei Road) in busy Kihei, Maui, on the second floor of a small strip mall (which is a right angle to the road). Call ahead for reservations or you'll have to wait.... More
