“Perfect evening at Maui Coast Poolside Cafe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

Our experience with Ami Ami food service is at the Maui Coast Poolside Cafe. Best coconut shrimp to date that we've had on Maui. Live music during the happy hour period, when we went for evening appetizers - shrimp & the Kobe beef sliders. Food and beverages were excellent. Staff prompt and courteous. Great outdoor setting, with tiki torches and softly-lit pool. We'll be back to the poolside cafe.

“Excellent place...glad we found it.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2013

Riding along up South Kihei Road in the early evening hours, my wife and I decided to give the Ami Ami a try and we're glad we did. The food was great, the cocktails were wonderful and the atmosphere, including the decor and the jazz music, were outstanding. We'll certainly be back on our next trip to Maui!

“Dinner no, drinks maybe!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2013

We stayed in the Maui Coast Hotel and decided to eat at 'Ami 'Ami one night. The food portions where small and tasteless leaving us hungry for another meal after dinner... and we aren't even big eaters. The servers where also really awkward which made for a long dining experience.

We also told them we are Gluten Free when we ordered. They brought out food that was battered and wouldn't let us send it back even though it didn't state it was battered on the menu.

They are trying to be a really high end restaurant so if you are looking to dress up and have a few drinks it might not be too bad, and their drinks a pretty strong.

“Outstanding in Kihei”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

Traveling on business I went for a solo dinner at Ami Ami. I sat at the bar and enjoyed food, drink and conversation. Nice atmosphere. Jared, my bartender, was friendly and made great cocktails. I had the Hamachi Poke pupu and Scallops with lilikoi butter for dinner; both were excellent. The prices were not cheap but appropriate given the quality. I will definitely dine here again!
