Our friends took us out to lunch at Cafe O'Lei. They are locals and were able to recommend menu items. The Caesar salad is delicious! Also, try the Blackened MahiMahi. Excellent seasoning.

One of Maui's favorite restaurants, Cafe O'Lei at the Dunes Golf Course always provides great food. Our favorites are the Onion Soup, crab club, the daily fish special and curry chicken salad. Excellent service with friendly staff. A couple problems with this restaurant. One it starting to look a little shabby. New carpet and paint would go a long way... More

Restaurant is part of golf course country club. You can be seated indoors or out. They feature a great daily special, which apparently consists of a bed of rice, caesar salad, and featured meat for that day. On day was short ribs, today was pulled pork. Daily special is only $7.95 so a large filling meal, a great price in... More

This is THE place for great food and extremely reasonable price! The ceaser salad and prime rib is the best on Maui, but do try the crab club, Bill Eby burger, NY steak and mac crusted chicken.....EXCELLENT!!!!!! Come early as seating is filled rather quickly as the locals and tourists love this restaurant.

Great ground level view of this great links course on Maui. Wonderful menu of "local ( Hawaii )" genre od eats such as their savory boneless short ribs. All fare priced between Wailea and Wailuku. Myself and friends dinner there 2 - 3 x a month while I am on Maui.

Great place to stop on your way to or from Lahaina area and Kahului. Convenient to the airport. Really good food, friendly service and very reasonable. You can eat inside or outside. Do not need to play golf to enjoy a meal there. Can have a wait to get a table, so call ahead.

My wife and I love to stop here for lunch. They get busy quick plus they have a lunch plate special for around $8 but supplies are limited. Today they were out by noon. The view is great of the West Maui mountains and the golf course adds a great touch. We seat outside looking at the mountains. The service... More

We ate here before leaving Maui. It's very close to the airport at a golf course. A lot of Local People go there, so that tells you something. The local food was really great, I would suggest their specials while they last. If you are hungry before you leave or when you arrive. This is the restaurant to hit!

Thank fooddentista
