We stopped here for lunch and had a great meal. The food was fresh and delicious and the kitchen seemed very clean. Would return.

“Best find we've made in a while”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

Robert isn't the owner, but he should be! We sat outside this joint 4 times because it is next to Ululani Shave Ice. Each time, we always read the menu and saw Robert interact with everyone. And I mean everyone. Always engaging, he took time to explain menu items, make recommendations and tailor to specific needs and requests. Tonight we went for the shave ice and his cafe. So glad we did. Better food and prices than most places in town. He hand delivers food to each table and personally takes time to engage in conversation. Wait, the food is great as well. Did I mention that yet?

“Yummy!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

What a great local gem! We had the brussel sprout and kale salad with grilled chicken and the fish tacos, a cheese quesadilla and crazy fries. Everything was delicious. The ambience was super cute, in a little courtyard overlooking some shops. Great people watching. And right nextdoor to the delicious Ululuani's Shaved Ice (owned by the same folks). Can't beat the wonderful prices too. The owner took great pride in his business and came to check on us personally. Great spot!

“Gourmet outdoor eating at it's finest!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

We stumbled upon Lahainaluna and were not disappointed. Just wanted a simple, inexpensive meal (also didn't want to miss a Maui sunset by eating indoors.) The fish tacos were to die for, what a surprise for an unassuming little outdoor grill; the Korean beef was also delicious as was the hotdog and chicken quesadilla. The owner obviously has put a gourmet twist on every item, even the salad dressing was exceptional (I think it had fresh mango juice in it, so tasty!) Do not hesitate to eat here if looking for a casual less expensive place to grab a bite in Lahaina. An added benefit is that it is located beside a fabulous shaved ice shop, so you don't have to go far for dessert! Also there is a kiosk nearby that has decent prices on casual jewelry. The owner was a very hardworking man who did his best to ensure our satisfaction. We ate there twice during our stay.

“Great food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

Very happy to see a great walk-up in this location. Robert at the register is great, personable and gives excellent menu suggestions; the fish tacos, Korean BBQ beef taco, kula pork, and hot dog are great choices. I only wish we would have eaten here more often.
