An unexpected and delightful dinner. Right on the beach with a beautiful sunset. Delicious sea food selection and wine selection. We had the seafood Panang curry and a caeser salad. super service and clean. It was a perfect meal and setting.

First night in Maui, we had a fabulous Mai Tai, blacken fish tacos, beautiful ocean view, and Buddy was our very friendly waitress. I would go back to Castaway Cafe next time we are there.

Castaways is my favorite place for breakfast in all of Maui. Unless you are staying at a hotel nearby you probably wouldn't even know it is there but it is totally worth a visit! Their fruit boat is absolutely delicious and some of the freshest and juiciest fruit I have ever tasted with a special little sauce on the side... More

We are so thrilled we found this place. We loved it! What a great meal and the view is unbeatable. We highly recommend it and definitely request Buddy as your waitress! She is one of the best servers we have ever had-funny, charming, excellent service. By the end of the meal, you wish you could hang out with her! The... More

We ate here on our way to the airport. It looked like a decent place. However, it was old and dirty inside. The food was less than average. The only nice thing to say is the staff was nice. It's a shame because this place has a nice view. But really needs to be updated and cleaned! I really don't... More

Love walking along the pretty beach walk north of Black Rock to the Castaway Cafe, The Cafe is beautifully situated next to the beach and has both indoor and outdoor seating. We ate breakfast here at least 5 times during our recent stay in Kaanapali and enjoyed every meal, especially the pancakes with macadamia nuts, bananas and pineapple. Excellent service... More

Worth the walk along the beach to dine at Castaways . Definitely the "Old Lahaina Town " feel. Don't rush and enjoy the sunset, Kanapali offers the best.

Right on beautiful Kanapalli beach! My family and I went here for breakfast. There are tables indoors and outdoors ( beautiful view) Good food, I had the Paradise pancakes (macadamia nut, pineapple, banana combo) and they were really good! Friendly/funny waiter. We went and enjoyed Kanapalli beach afterwards!

Staying at the Royal Lahaina, it is easy to get here by foot. Very close and right on the water. We ate inside but had a good view of the sunset. The fish was good. Overall the meal was good but not great. It wasn't quite the casual place we expected - at least the prices were not low.
