Group met for lunch. Casual restaurant, pleasant but nothing fancy. Menu was burgers, sandwiches. Everything seems priced at $13.95. They do breakfast mornings. It is convenient if you staying nearby. Mahi fish sandwich was good but not great, fries were good. My wife ordered a tuna melt and and a roast beef sandwich was served "Here is you Tuna melt"....

The Castaway Cafe is a true Maui Gem. The food is awesome and the service is fantastic. Arrive early so you can get a seat out back overlooking the beach. Prices are very reasonable and the quality is top notch. Will definitely visit this place again. Breakfast was awesome.

A little restaurant located in a resort just north of the Kaanapali resort area. Quiet, quaint and located right on the ocean, perfect for sunset dinner , although sunset would not be visible in winter months when sun sets behind Lanai. But in April, it was breathtaking. We went on a night when all pasta dishes were 1/2 price. Large... More

Every time we come to Maui we stop in for breakfast or lunch and often for both. Have also had dinner here. Every meal has been excellent.

Good service, good food, reasonable prices - superb view! What else would you want? Prices are quite high in this area, so it's good to have reasonable prices.

This is a great place for breakfast, prices and food are good with great views . Feels like an old fashioned diner. Can't beat the beach front location.

A friend recommended this place so I was looking forward to eating here and enjoying the atmosphere. The surroundings and view were nice, nothing to complain about there, then the food came!! Dry burger, blah appetizers, meek salad, weak drinks, everyone complained about something in their meal. I so wanted to like this place, but not happening!!!

Probably my least favorite breakfast during our 8 days at Kaanapali. Walked past the restaurant every day on our walk so decided to try it but it wasn't great.

The food was good, average breakfast with eggs, pancakes, and biscuits & gravy. The view was beautiful, minus the younger children, who's parents just let them roam wildly, while we were trying to enjoy our breakfast. Prices were average to high, but may come again just because of location.
