This place is so good. We had breakfast here on our first day in Maui and I loved it so much we went again for dinner. They have a good menu for kids as well. I had the lava lava shrimp omelette and my husband had pork belly Benedict and they were both delicious. For lunch I recommend the shrimp po boi or if you are going for drinks and some snacks the lava lava shrimp appetizer and the mermaid fries.

To walk by this restaurant you may think "meh!" but the fish tacos are delicious and pretty affordable by Maui standards. There are not a lot of tables and it's self order with tableside delivery so not fine dining, but great casual, affordable, tasty eats!

DTH was recommended to be prior to the trip so we sought this out in Lahaina ..we went later in the day .. so parking was not too bad downtown ... we hit DHT on a friday night, right before it turns from awesome food place to night club (8:30 wish) . We ordered our food and found a spot to sit ...( kinda tough for our family of 5) the seating is al fresco - in an open air space that .. the food was great - I had the Fish and chips, my wife had tacos , the kids had chicken and waffles, cheeseburgers and the quesadilla ... no one was disappointed .. everything was tasty and large portions .. fries were great (we shared an order of Mermaid fries) , the lava lava sauce tasty ( with a name like lava I was expecting a lilies spicer .. but all good)

So happy you enjoyed your visit with us so much! I am very sorry you did not enjoy the food as much as much as the atmosphere. I hope you will give us another chance while you are on island.
