The sunset from here is amazing. We have had the same waitress every year for over 12 years and she is great. Always go for the 2-4-1 pasta on tuesday nights.

Unfortunately we went here on pasta night and all they offered were pasta dishes, two for one. It was good but remember this bit of info if you decide to dine there.

We ate breakfast here 2 times. It's a perfect short walk from the Royal Lahaina. Excellent views and good food.

We frequented this restaurant a lot on our vacation as it was in our resort. Staff extremely friendly( buddy is awesome). Food was great. Try to get their rib special on Sunday. I have never seen meatier ribs. Delicious. Their paradise pancakes for breakfast are heaven on a plate. Drinks are cheaper here than all other resorts. Bottles of beer... More

Good food at fair prices. Cafe is right on the beach with an open patio just above the sand. Great spot to have coffee and start the day without breaking the bank!

I gave this place 3 tries since it was on the property of the condo we rented. Each time the service was slow, the staff was unfriendly. FIsh tacos were soggy and couldn't even be picked up. Don't waste time here unless it's a last resort. Good view; however, there's so many beachfront dining restaurants.

Excellent breakfast. Very pleasant service. And you certainly cannot beat the view. Highly recommend this little place if you want to get away from the crowds. Oh yeah, the hash browns are the best.

Just a short walk up the beach from the Royal Lahaina Resort is this nice, casual beach bar/cafe. It's a great place to grab a drink or lunch if you are snorkeling the reef, or just beaching. There seems to be a nice mix of locals and tourists. Friendly staff, good food, reasonably priced. I have eaten breakfast, lunch and... More
