Maui lacks an "Amberloo and Food" like topic in the "Top Questions About Maui Section. Maybe we can get one going??
Here are my top picks. I am sure I am forgetting some places (a lot actually), but what are yours?
In West Maui, any of the TS Restaurants (Duke's, Kimo's, Leilani's or Hula Grill) solid food, good locations and Hula Pie.
Merriman's (Kapalua): one of my two favorite high end places in West Maui.
Plantation House (Kapalua): my actual favorite West Maui restaurant. A very different perspective from being down on the ocean and very good food.
Roy's (Ka’anapali): like Roy's every place, very good food and very good service.
Lahaina Grill (Lahaina): superb, fresh ingredients, well prepared.
Mala Ocean Tavern and Honu are both great, mid priced options and Betty's Beach Cafe is fun and a nice location.
Gerard's (Lahaina) has great French food and seafood.
For good, reasonable food look also look at The Gazebo at the Napili Shores for breakfasts, but get there early or you wait, if the line is too long walk across the beach to the Sea House at Napili Kai; Mama's Ribs & Rotisserie in Napili Plaza, also in Napili Plaza is Maui Tacos. Then you have the Fish Market Maui and Honokawai Okazuya.
In Ka'anapali CJ's Diner is a good family spot and reasonable. Whaler's Village also has a nice food court when you want something quick and easy for the kids.
In Lahaina there is the Sunrise Café, Pioneer Inn, Star Noodle, Local Food and Nagasako Okazuya.
For South Maui, on the high end you have DUO, Ferraro, Joe's Bar & Grill, Nick's Fishmarket, Monkeypod Kitchen, Amasia, Spago and Hali'imaile General Store.
For more reasonable South Maui places to eat breakfast and lunch, look at Peggy Sue’s (Kihei), Stella Blues, Da Kitchen, Cheeseburger Island Style, Mulligan's on the Blue, Lulu's, South Shore Tiki Lounge, Joy's Place, Moose McGillycuddy's and Fred’s Mexican Cafe.
For moderate prices, look at Tommy Bahama's Coconuts Fish Cafe, Cafe O'Lei, Eskimo Candy, Cuatro and the 808 Bistro.
If you are near Kahului, Da Kitchen, Sam Sato's and for baked goods Home Maid Bakery, T. Komoda Store & Bakery and Stillwell's.
I would be remiss yo not mention Mama's Fish House in Paia. I like Mama's, but it isn't my favorite. I think they charge too much for the setting and I don't find the food terribly creative, but it is good tasting. Just be prepared for a hefty bill.
Okay.... so let's hear from the rest of y'all.
