“Tasty Asian Style Braised Short Ribs”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2014

We came into this place based on the reviews and sick of paying $28 for a sad hamburger at the resorts and it delivered. Service was good and the food was better. The braised short ribs were amazing and enough for two if you get a little app.

“Awesome service and food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2014 via mobile

We have been looking for a place on Maui that served French Onion Soup with Maui Onioms and we found it. Great service and great food. Soft Shell Crab rolls were great as well. Great atmosphere.

“Cafe O'Lei”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2014

The service was excellent. The French Onion soup was the best I have ever eaten. We had Prime Rib and the fish of the day, both were very good. It is located in a strip mall so can't say much for the outdoor atmosphere but the ambiance in the restaurant itself was very pleasant.

“Good food for the buck!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2014

Never miss a great bargain in Kihei and Cafe O'Lei is the place to check out. Affordable, good food and friendly service. Sometimes a bit crowdy and noisy, but worth waiting and chill out.
