For our 40th wedding anniversary we chose to dine at Café O'Lei in Kihei because it had been recommended twice from people we met at our condo rental. Made a reservation which I suggest you do unless you wish to stand in a fairly long line. Wished I had asked for a table for two along the windows where it... More

We eat here at least once on every trip to Maui...Usually for lunch. The food is great, their fish specials make for a good value, and the service has always been excellent. They have options for my wife who has Celiac disease (gluten allergy), our picky 2 year-old daughter, and of course for me, the guy who will eat anything... More

We were looking for something good but quick. Good selection of foods including sushi. We had Maui Onion Soup with salad. The soup was tasty - full of flavour with a nice party top. A little different from the cheese covered crouton for French onion soup - but tasty never the less. The salads were fresh. Well dressed and large!... More

This is a great spot to grab dinner. Make sure you call and get a spot. Parking is a little tight and the rent a cop beside whalers is a pain about parking in that lot

This was the first stop after arrival and it was possibly the best food of the trip. All of the seafood was melt in your mouth delicious. They also have some interesting cocktails.

This is a good restaurant, They have nice spaced tables along the sides of the restaurant. Where ever you sit it really doesn't matter as the food is good. They have daily lunch fish special that is always great. When I go for lunch I always order the fish special. On the weekends they have sushi bar. The last time... More

Completely exceeded our expectations! Great food, great location and staff that wants you to be completely satisfied. We had an excellent dinner Wednesday evening and my wife wanted to return for the excellent Ceviche they serve on the weekend. So we returned Friday for lunch and my wife ordered the Ceviche not realizing it's not available until dinner. Our waitress... More

Moderately priced, reasonably good food, check out sushi bar, liked their hamachi. Main menu was okay but nothing exciting, mahi a little dry. Quick service, friendly staff.

Thank onago
