I visited on a Wedneday night, which is the night Amy Hanaiali'i Gilliom sings. She is fabulous and I guess Nalu's knows it so they have a "dining by reservation" thing with tickets and a four-course dinner deal that night. The total was about $65,...More

Breakfast is an outstanding value for the $$. Refreshing fruit infused complimentary water is a big plus! Caprese omelet is superb! Went first 2 days here and will again over the next 2 weeks!

We stopped in here our first night. They had a live band playing Hawaiian music. The drinks and food was amazing. And loved the Poke, It was fresh catch of the day.

Great experience, great burgers and outstanding crab cakes. No reservations so you order and then find a table and you will likely have to share.

Husband said the Ahi club sandwich was the best ever. The Nalu raw salad was generous and full of top quality produce. Our child had chicken and waffles. Wish I could be a regular.

While on a recent vacation in Kihei on Maui we went probably 5 times at Nalu’s for breakfast and dinner. The food is extremely fresh and delicious. My favorite was the crab cakes on a salad. The dressing is mouthwatering. Also new on the menu...More

From the moment you enter, you feel that you’re in Hawaii. Nice music playing (live in the evenings); friendly staff; and the food is very good. Try the volcano fries with your order too. Stand in line to order or check out the menu before...More

We'd heard that Nalu's was a 'must do' and sadly we didn't go until the end of our trip. We'd wished that we had tried it at the start of our trip because we would have been back a number of times! Went for dinner...More

Ron, I'm afraid I do not have an answer for you. I just checked TripAdvisor and found Nalu's listed under restaurants when I checked under "Breakfast.." You are correct that Nalu's is now listed under "Quick bites" rather... More
