Stopped here after doing road to Hana. I saw they did a plate lunch, which I'd wanted to try. They were out of pork so I chose the boneless short-rib. - Rice was incredibly bland (no salt even) - Mac & cheese inedible - Ribs...More

Now, I don't write a whole lot of reviews, so something has to really make me happy to make me sit and write. The Barefoot Cafe is such a hole-in-the-wall, that you could easily walk past it. It's a small little front, probably 8-10 feet...More

This is so delicious and reasonably priced. The owner Chef Barry Villiarimo is an amazing chef. His food reflects his past experience of the Old Hana Ranch hotel which is now known as Trava'asa Hana. Gourmet food at reasonable price. I give this 5 stars

Went here after driving the road to Hana. I had the mixed plate, and it was fantastic. I had a type of beef, tempura shrimp, poke, rice and mac salad.... so good. One of the better meals I had in Maui. Great atmosphere, friendly staff.

Busy little local cafe selling a variety of hot dishes - take away or some tables provided. We just wanted a break so got a cup of decent coffee and watched the world go by. Certainly seems popular!

Any less and it would be a street vendor in Mexico. Food actually was very good on a beautiful bay in Hana. We both had fish sandwiches perfectly fried on a brioche roll and fries. Both were much better than expected.

We stumped upon this gem during our trip to Hana and it seriously was some of the best fried rice we have dined upon. Staff was friendly, portions huge, and very tasty. Casual dining with a view. Don't miss it if you want authentic food...More

Have to agree about the Island time with the other reviewer, but think that lunch would be available from 11:30 am. They are pretty laid back, so they might provide lunch earlier, if asked. The breakfasts are really good.
