“Nice atmosphere, yummy food”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

We had lunch, dinner, and sushi takeout on different days, and all were delicious. The dinner was a bit pricey but very good. Lunch was probably the best deal. Sushi was nothing special but still very decent.

“Great Food and Service”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

It was all wonderful!! The lettuce wraps were delicious and Mai Tai's really hit the spot. The service and ambience were good. I would definitely recommend eating there and reasonably priced as well.

“Best Meal of our Trip. Wish we found it sooner”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

Kehei is a great little town. So much more people friendly and not stuffy as we found some places in Wailea.....A local told us about CXafe O Lei...great menu. Service was amazing.
Nothing fancy, but a great meal and even better price. If you go to Maui, try this spot. It was very crowded, so you may want reservations. It is much more local flavor and we loved it.
Fish, steak, drinks...all great. Wish we had discovered it on day 2 not day 6 of a 7 day vacation.
Kehi has affordable Whaler's Market, Food Land, and Liquor ...stock up and save if you are at a pricey resort. We loved the drive and took the coast drive to the west island side. Great spot.

“Great food, service, and price!”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

We went for dinner with a group of 9 which includes three kids ages 11, 12, and 13. The restaurant surprised us with how nice it looked inside compared to what you see outside. The manua lettuce wraps for an appetizer were amazing. My Dad and I had the short ribs and they were fall off the bone perfect. My wife had the blackened Mahi and said it was some of the best she has had and we have a lot of Mahi as we travel to Mexico regularly! The presentation of the meals was amazing as well! The service was impeccable and they used our cameras and took photos of our whole group! The prices were very affordable for Maui or any resort town! I highly recommend Café O' Lei!!!!! :):)

“Great daily fish special”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

This so one of our favorite restaurants on Maui! The daily fish is served with a great Caesar salad and rice, with a different special sauce that has never disappointed. It is just across the street from the beach on South Kihei abroad with ample parking. There is a full bar and also another daily special priced at only $7.95!
