We decided to eat here for lunch after reading some good reviews. We made reservations an hour before for a party of 10. Not a problem. They sat us in the courtyard area under a tree. Watch for the birds and falling leaves but it's nice to dine outside on a beautiful sunny day. The service is a little slow so be prepared to wait a bit but once they took our orders everything went pretty smoothly and quickly.
We tried the salmon Benedict with roasted potatoes which was fabulous. Eggs done just right. The mini waffles were waffles. The goat cheese omelet was a pretty big portion. Thick omelet enclosed some warm herbed goat cheese. Topped with a few hamakua mushrooms. Yum.
We also tried their Turkey sandwich special which was a thick sammy accompanied by a big dill picked.
Fresh market bistro gets about 90% of their ingredients from Maui and the rest from the outer islands or elsewhere. You can tell when you taste the quality and freshness of whatever you're eating.
Their recipes seem to showcase the food they have in season as their menus are constantly changing.
When you go here, expect to pay a premium for the great food. However, the experience from the food, service, and atmosphere of eating in a quaint but beautiful shaded courtyard are certainly worth it.
Tip: Twice a month, every other Thursday, they offer a showcase of foods where they serve you a set course meal. Make reservations well ahead of time as they are often booked a month or two in advance
