Hit the spot for easy family dining.

Staying next door at the Royal Lahaina- I'm sick of spending $100 per meal. My family and I were looking for an "affordable" breakfast. The Castaway is tucked behind the royal Lahaina in the next property over. At 11 am it was half empty. The waiters were working hard but service was not... read more

This restaurant is very close to the beach. You can have a great breakfast and then walk out on the beach and enjoy your day. Everything my family had including the eggs Benedict was really good. Very clean and very accommodating.

Good family fare, reasonable prices and a lovely casual atmosphere overlooking the beach makes this cafe a great place to visit for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

We enjoyed two breakfasts at Castaway during our visit to Maui. The restaurant is set right by the beach, with a lovely ocean breeze cooling the space down. The food was good, and quick. Kid friendly. No complaints.

No wait breakfast on a Saturday at 0900! Everything from service to food was excellent. Will come back! Ambiance is a win win as well. You can park at the nearby villas and get a two hour parking pass at their registration desk. Easy and fast.

I stayed at the Aston Maui Kaanapali Villas the end of May, and the Castaway Cafe is right on the property. It is a small open-air restaurant overlooking the ocean...a treat day or night. The wait staff is very pleasant and nice. But the food is nothing special. Over the course of 8 days, I ate breakfast there twice, lunch... More

I should start by saying that yesterday morning we had breakfast at The Gazebo which was amazing so probably nothing will measure up. The omelet was nothing special, the coffee strong and bitter and the banana macadamia pineapple pancakes I can make at home but perhaps for me the worst was the pineapple chunks out of a can. Also, the... More

Great view, good food. Servers were pleasant and food was delightful. A great Breakfast spot for early risers, and the early morning vibe couldn't be better. Get the Lanai sauce. Eat it with your finger if you have to omg it is so good. That is all.

We enjoyed our meals. The cafe serves everything from tacos to fish and chips. Our large group were all to find a meal that they enjoyed. I would go here again.
