We've been here before and will definitely be back. The fish was super fresh (caught this am). The staff is always relaxed and interested in how we are doing.

The Pupu Lounge is fairly unassuming - a little rough visually; not a dive, but definitely not a fine dining atmosphere. But, hey!, you're on vacation, and it is local and casual, and located right across the street from the water in the middle of South Kihei!

The waiter was good, and trying quite hard to please. The catch of the day - as it is on most days - was Walu - an excellent local fish that I can't find a translation for. Grilled nicely with chips - $14.99. All 3 of us had the same dish and all agreed on its tastiness. Local beers were $5. Very reasonable by local standards, and a good experience all around. I'll definitely go back.

The food was excellent and nearby the beach area. Also, there is nearby a parking spot. Of course, we will come back! :)

This was the first restaurant we went to upon arriving in Hawaii. We got there about 430, so it wasn't very crowded yet, being so early. The staff was very friendly and we received our food in a timely manner. We ordered the shrimp and the fresh fish of the day. The shrimp were great and the fish was also very good. The restaurant was clean and it was in a good location right off the main street. I'm not sure why this doesnt have better reviews, because I can't think of a single thing to complain about. I think the prices were similar to anything else you'd find at a seafood restaurant. We would certainly have gone back, but there were too many other restaurants to try, so we never had time. I would recommend this restaurant.

Order the fish and chips with grilled fish. Awesome. The atmosphere is a bit tough, but the food is good. Pricey for what you get.
