“Best Meal on Maui”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2014

Best meal on Maui, bar none. The restaurant is a rustic self seated affair. Get in line,. order your food, find a table and eat. If you are looking for fine dining silver service this isn't the place, but the quality of food will rival any Michelin rated restaurant. The freshest ingredients, great fresh seafood.....I have dined all over the world and never had fresher. An absolute must visit on Maui at very reasonable prices in a very cool and quaint village with interesting shops and celebrity sightings too if that's your thing.

“great town, nice lunch spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2014

I was surprised that I enjoyed my chicken taco more than the fish one and if I were to go back I would try the fish burger, it looked awesome! As a New Yorker, I had to fight the urge to make sure I got a seat, but honestly, it all worked out and the seats do turn over quickly as it isn't really the type of place one would linger at. The onion rings were excellent. The town of Paia is so cute and we spent the rest of the afternoon walking around. We especially enjoyed "Love The Beach"next door for bikinis. Great afternoon with the family.

“Fresh and Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2014

This a good spot for a casual lunch or dinner. The food is very fresh and abundant. I especially loved the Mahi fish sandwich. Location is right on the Hana Highway.

Communal seating and self serve. Nothing fancy here. Just good food.

“Good Food in a Bustling Little Town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

Enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. The patrons seemed to be an equal mix of tourists and locals. The food (Mahi burger and plate) was very good and reasonably priced.
