Local atmosphere!

We love walking along the Kaanapali Beach walk up to the Castaway Café for breakfast. With an open breezy atmosphere, friendly waitresses and a fun menu it's a great way to start the day for us! We enjoy the Coffee, Juice, and the Breakfast Burritos! Although there is a great little bar there I'm... read more

Charming ambience, nice servers but the fresh fish was fried with heavy batter and a lot of grease. Upset stomach that evening and the next day. Low end dining.

Excellent service, quality food and the best view of any restaurant, what else could you ask for...oh yes, great prices too. We added chairs to our table all morning long as our group started from one and finished at six, staff never complained a bit just rolling with it and smiling the entire time. Thanks for wonderful start to our... More

We met a few couples while staying at our Resort in Kaanapali that were raving about the Castaway Cafe, so we decided to try it for dinner on our last night. The service couldn't have been better (Buddy), beautiful sunset views, the prices were great and the meal was delicious. Great atmosphere and away from the craziness and prices of... More

The Castaway Cafe is not on the beaten track but it is worth finding. Great little restaurant wonderful breakfast one of I the best we have found on Maui. We alway wait for an outdoor table, but inside tables are also good. Great portions and super service. All for a very reasonable price.

They have good food, a great selection, fun happy hour, good drinks. We like it for all the above but mainly for the Hawaiian decor and friendly atmosphere of this Hawaiian restaurant next to the beach.

The Castaway Cafe is small restaurant on the grounds of the Aston Maui Ka'anapali Villas on Ka'anapali beach. Easily walkable if you're in the area, but drivers will need to find a spot in the crowded hotel lot and hike a short distance for their meal. The cafe itself is small, relaxed, and very understated compared to the bigger named... More
