My husband and I were looking for a place for dinner. Had dined here 13 years ago, and decided to take a look at the menu & decide if we wanted to stay to dine. We were greeted warmly by the chef- who explained that we should stay and have the fresh catch (Hawaiian sea bass). We decided to stay... More

We ate here our last night in Keihei, and I wish we had found it sooner. When we first got there I had my doubts, it was hot inside so we sat outside which was beautiful! Yes as someone said dated furniture but we didn't care. I was concerned because the patio filled up and they only had one waitress... More

My husband and I were looking for a lunch place that wasn’t too touristy while we were in Kihei. Not being sure which of the many restaurants to pick, we finally decided to succumb and selected the Pupu Lounge because they were advertising $4 mai tais after 2:00 PM. I’m glad we did. After seating us the waiter, steered us... More

We stopped for lunch while in town. Service was nice but took forever. Had to ask twice for drinks. Watched a couple walk out after waiting so long. They were out of rice and burgers so we did the special. Sea bass salad. It was good but put me and my wife on the toilet. It ruined the luau we... More

This restaurant is in a cute little shopping complex with other bars and restaurants. It has a great porch overlooking a charming park. It has very dated tables and chairs but the food is it's redeeming quality. The appetizer pupu platter wasn't much to write home about, it was good but not great, and it looks nothing like it does...

This a great little place to eat if you find yourself in Kihei! We ate here for lunch and the servers were fantastic with their recommendations. They really sold the fish catch of the day that I ended up ordering that for lunch and I was very glad that I did. Very fresh ingredients and you could tell that the... More

We gave the Pupu Lounge a try for dinner, our server was beyond fantastic! He convinced us to try the sea bass, and I am so glad we did. It was great! Very light and flaky, cooked to perfection. The seating is perfect for people watching, right across the street from the beach. The decor was eclectic and very comfortable.

Found PuPu Lounge almost by accident on last trip to Maui and we were pleasantly surprised by how good the food was. My wife and I decided to try it for lunch on our return trip and we were told by Michelle that the fresh catch was sea bass (Hapu) and it was the best thing on the menu. We... More
