“Absolutely Fantastic”
Reviewed February 4, 2014

You should try eating at all the top " restaurants" , then eat here! Fantastic! This is not a fancy, or flashy, restaurant, but they blow the big hotel restaurants right out of the water at half the price.
You need a reservation, or don't bother. You need to bring your own wine, they don't have a liquor license but only charge $7 corkage! This is a DON'T miss while in Maui.

“The food was simply WOW!”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

We have dined at Cuatro before, but it had been awhile... I think the food is even better now than before, and it was excellent before. You simply MUST have the tuna nachos appetizer... simply amazing. And the beef appetizer, the Pupu Steak, was also a taste bud spectacular. Everyone's meal received raves, and the ice cream and fresh fruit dessert, drizzled with a caramel sauce, was out of this world. And that's not all.... with no liquor license, you are able to BYOB, and for a modest corkage fee you can enjoy your own wine or alcoholic beverage for a fraction of the price of a similar restaurant. What a bargain! We ran out of wine on one of our recent visits, but no worries, Foodland is next door, so we popped over, bought a couple more bottles, and all was good! This ranks as one of our favorite restaurants on Maui, and that is saying something, because Maui has many wonderful restaurants. We will be back.

“It's a Hideaway”
Reviewed January 31, 2014

As you drive down S Kihei Rd. If you can find Foodland you will find Cuatro nearby.
We drove around a bit before finding it.

Small restaurant with excellent food.
Make a reservation as you'll get stuck at the lonely outside table if you don't.

We opted to choose the style of prep and go with the waitresses selection of fish to match.
Riviera Style and House Style. Both were very good.

The taco appetizer was quite good, but I would rave as much as others have about it.
It's food photographic beautiful though. I would order it again.

Desert was a combo of ice cream and fruit. Very delicious.

The only downside to this restaurant is if you're on the wrong side of the table, you get a view straight into the kitchen & see the dishwasher station. That's only seen from a few seats in the restaurant though.

Would definitely eat here again for a nicer dinner.
This was our second favorite restaurant we visited during our stay in Kihei.
Enjoy!

“Neighborhood gem with outstanding fresh fish”
Reviewed January 28, 2014

We went to Cuatro's almost by accident, driving around Kihei looking for a place for dinner. It's a little hard to find: a very tiny restaurant in the corner of a strip mall by a Foodland. Seats 28 people. Luckily when we arrived at 6:30pm, they had just had a cancellation and we got a table. I would strongly recommend reservations, and since they do not have liquor, stop at Foodland and get a bottle of wine.

The menu is pretty simple: lots of fresh fish selections cooked a few different ways blackened, mediterranean, etc.) . My husband and I had the monchong, prepared in different ways. We had had enough mahi mahi in other restaurants. Both of us had a delicious meal. The food was carefully prepared and beautifully presented.

This restaurant is a great little getaway from the massive restaurants on Maui.
