We had great service and the food was very delicious, but I wish I could've gotten a little more sweet potato salad though! And when we ordered dessert, we ordered the banana split, was yummy but could the scoops be any smaller? For $8.95? We come eat here all the time, and couple times we heard yelling in the kitchen. What's that about?? Who's yelling? is it the boss? If it is, your staff is doing a good job. They attended to our every need every time we go there.

When in Maui recently, we happened upon this lovely restaurant. Jake, the manager, was very friendly and offered ideas of other areas to visit while we were vacationing. The food was excellent, portions plentiful, great variety, and good pricing. Overall, this onewas of our favorite stops to eat!

I am very happy that Tante's is on Maui. Their food is great, and as locals, we dine there often. I like the variety offered on their menu. There is a good mix of local and other cuisine. The portions are hearty, and the food is tasty. The prices are very reasonable and they give a kamaaina discount. The only complaint I have is the parking. The stalls are so narrow! That, of course, is not the fault of the restaurant.

Tante's Island Cuisine is attached to the Maui Seaside. See my review about the Maui Seaside for more information regarding the “hotel.”

We ate here a few times for breakfast and one dinner. I have to say the service and food quality are impressive when compared to the hotel property. Some people have mentioned a free breakfast but it was never offered nor mentioned during our stay.

Regardless, the wait staff was friendly and the food was decent. We had the health choice plate (half papaya, yogurt with granola, and oatmeal) for breakfast and it was a good selection.

Great place to eat and socialize with the friendly staff, we included the free daily breakfast with our stay at the Maui Seaside hotel and Tante's is the restaurant on site, We never left there hungry as the portions were a good size. Please try the pineapple upside down pancakes, they are great (not part of the free breakfast though, but worth it) Jake is the Maitre' D, He is great all in all a great vacation/experience
