There are hundreds of restaurants on Maui but most are expensive and not really distinctive from all the others. Cuatro has only been opened a few months but is already winning awards and local recognition for its "Pacific Rim" food fusion. It's small with only a few tables and tucked away in a small strip mall but excellent service. The menu selection is modest but prices are moderate for Maui. The Spicy Tuna Nachos was unique and outstanding as was the day's fresh fish selection that is offered served in four different styles. The Kihei Cooler dessert of fresh local fruit and coconut sorbet ice cream is a "must try". The wine list is good and a few brands of bottled beer are also available. It was just great with some truly delicious unique flavors.

We were really impressed with Cuatro. The food was excellent and the service was flawless. The fusion cuisine makes for some really imaginative and flavorful dishes. As others have mentioned, the Spicy Tuna Nachos were out of this world. My husband and I split: the nachos, a salad with a really yummy dressing, and an entree (a steak with chimichurri sauce, rice that had a pleasant, citrusy flavor, and green beans) and we had plenty of food. We will definitely be back next time that we are in Kihei!

This is one of the best values on Maui. The staff is friendly and competent, while the kitchen turns out consistently top quality food, nicely presented. Everything on the menu is good and I've never been disappointed with anything but, as someone mentioned, the seared ahi prepared house style is superb. It's my favorite.

Everything that we ordered was phenomenal. I was very surprised at the amount of flavor that each dish offered. Usually at these reasonable prices, on Maui that is, you will get a pretty bland poorly presented meal. We thoroughly enjoyed everything from the Togarashi Seared Ahi Pu Pu to the Island Cooler Dessert. A++++ Please be sure to try the Spicy Tuna Nachos. The name is decieving, they taste more like the signature Pu Pu, Ahi Sesami Cones, at Spagos in Wailea; and for 1/3 of the price! Fantastic meal!

My wife and I had been disappointed with many of the overpriced restaurants on Maui. Cuarto's is a welcome exception. The resturant is very comfortable, the service was marvellous and friendly and even the pre-dinner chips were delicious. We began with the wonderful ahi tuna nachos. For dinner, we had both the mahi mahi - mediterranean style - and the ahi - house style. Both we're great dishes, but the ahi, prepared house style, was phenomenal. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Maui.
