Fresh catch is a must when visiting Maui and the best preparation is at Market Fresh Bistro. Using only the freshest of ingredients the catch of the day was perfectly seasoned, cooked, and presented on a bed of wonderful local sautéed vegetables. Served with a salad of local greens luncheon is a perfect blend of first class preparation and presentation... More

We happened upon the Bistro during a morning stroll through the town of Makawao, before most galleries were open. We had a great breakfast and chatted with the wait staff and owner for a bit. Armed with a bit of information about the town and our trip up to Haleakala, we left for the dormant volcano trip, with the intention... More

Friends of ours who had visited Maui had encouraged us to make the 1 hour journey from our accommodations in Lahaina to the Market Fresh Bistro in Makawao. They said we would have the best breakfast we had ever eaten. The five of us set out one morning and arrived shortly after the restaurant opened. We were not disappointed with... More

Having heard good things about this place, we went for breakfast once about a year ago, around 10 am, only to be told that the chef wasn't there so we could only have toast ! They open at 9 ! We decided to give it another try today. I phoned ahead to ask what time the breakfast menu was served... More

Makawaos more serious food offerings. Great breakfasts and lunch and a special reservations only dinner seating on Thursdays. Never a bad meal here. A limited, but excellent and affordable selection of wines. Almost anything on the menu is good. Great stop on the way back from Haleakala. Intimate courtyard outdoor seating. Don't miss glass blowing next door, or Maui's best... More

Well the food was good, if just a tad over priced for Simple breakfast, of eggs, house made breakfast patty's and French toast. The orange and starfruit blend was very yummy but again over priced for it being made with local orange and starfruit. Also the strange ordering set up was very off putting and does NOT make for a...

Made a reservation and the table was waiting. We had a lovely, absolutely delicious lunch with soup, salad and fish. The best blackened snapper that I have ever had. Great tiramisu! Not a fancy place but charming with great food and wine.

Market Fresh Bistro is located in a charming courtyard off the main road of Makawao. My sister and I had lunch there, just sandwiches and iced tea, but the food was quite good. I would definitely return when in Makawao.

We stopped here for lunch on a drive through Makawao and got very lucky. Friendly staff, very nicely chosen (limited) wine and beer, and great fresh food cooking. I had a grey snapper on crisp sautéed vegetables. They do a 7 course tasting menu on Thursdays with creative wine pairings - I would definitely try this if in the area.... More
