Maui Restaurant Tips and Reviews

Maui Things to Do

Maui Restaurants Road To Hana Kaanapali Beach Club

Oahu Things to Do

Polynesian Cultural Center Pearl Harbor Hilton Hawaiian Village - Oahu

We found many restaurants that we enjoyed when visiting Maui in 2009.  I found that the food was good in most places and that the prices were higher than in Philadelphia. 

Kimos Restaurant
845 Front Street
Lahaina, Maui. 

This restaurant is open for lunch and dinner and is always busy.  To avoid a wait make reservations for dinner in advance especially during peak season.  

I have to say that the best part of this restaurant is that it has a beautiful waterfront setting.  We were there for sunset and the view was awesome.  The  food and service are very good.  The menu includes a variety of fish with your choice of several different preparations.  They also have chicken, pork and steaks.  Most of my group went with fish and they seemed very pleased with it.   I chose the Kushiyaki which is a grilled brochette of teriyaki chicken breast and sirloin steak with peppers onions and t I thought was good. The kids had the famous "Original Hula Pie" for dessert and the loved it.  Note that we did receive a coupon from our hotel for a free dessert so be sure to be on the look out.  Prices range from $18 - $35 for entrees.

Hula Grill
2435 Kaanapali Pkwy # P1
Kaanapali, Maui
Note: Located in Whaler's Village

You can relax in the outdoor Barefoot Bar, sitting in the Kaanapali Beach sand, or in the main dining room. The oceanfront setting with a view the islands of Lanai and Molokai is terrific.  Hawaii regional seafood in a vintage Maui oceanfront setting. Enjoy fresh island seafood and locally produced vegetables, chicken and steak in the dining room with entrees ranging from $18 - $30; brick-oven pizza, salad, and sandwiches in the Barefoot Bar with prices ranging from $7 - $18. We thought that this restaurant was excellent.  Food, service and atmosphere were superb.

Mama's Fish House
799 Poho Pl
Paia, HI

This restaurant is about an hour drive from Kaanapali Beach, and approximately 45 minutes from Wailea, but it is worth the drive.  It is open for lunch and dinner.

It has a great setting on the beach with incredible ocean views.  The Mama's experience begins outdoors on the path leading up to the restaurant with its beautiful palm trees and lit torches. Once inside the decor is wonderful with bamboo, tropical arrangements, candle light and servers dressed in Polynesian prints. Most tables have a view so try and go before sunset to see the view of the beautiful ocean.

The fish arrives several times a day from local fisherman. Each dish has a unique distinct, island flavor.  The service is warm and friendly.  Desserts are superb.  Drinks are very good but very pricey.  Most of the entrees are in the $30-$50 range with $16 - $22 for an appetizer, $15 per drink and desserts around $12.

Everything we had was excellent, fresh, and prepared perfectly. It is however very expensive so be prepared!

Lahaina Coolers Bar and Restaurant
180 Dickensen St 
Lahaina, Maui 

Casual, open-air restaurant with outdoor seating.  It is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  Entrees range from $18 - $27.  Menu includes a lot of fish, steak, pasta, chicken and pork. 

We enjoyed the outdoor seating, and casual atmosphere. The food was good and service adequate.

Lelaini's Restaurant
2435 Kaanapali Pkwy Ste J
Kaanapali, Maui
Note: Located in Whaler's Village

Lealani's is located on the beach side of whaler's village.  The upstairs of this open-air restaurant, Leilani's Island Fish & Steaks, is more upscale and only serves dinner.  Entrees include steaks, prime rib, kiawe smoked ribs and chicken, and fresh Hawaiian seafood prepared in a variety of ways. Entrees range from $19 - $30.

The downstairs restaurant, Leilani's Beachside Grill, is  casual, and less expensive. This restaurant is open for lunch as well as dinner and it has a more limited menu. The Beachside Grill serves burgers, salads, sandwiches, pupus and cocktails.  Entrees range from $9 - $18.

We had lunch here and everyone enjoyed their meals.  I had the house roasted turkey sandwich and it was very tasty.

The view is excellent of the beach, and the sunset is absolutely amazing.

I personally like the Whaler Village Restaurants better than the restaurants we visited in Lahaina.

Maalaea Waterfront Restaurant
50 Hauoli St
Wailuku, HI 96793-9510

 It was decorated more like something you would see in Philadelphia rather than in Maui. It had a cozy, private golf club feeling but could use some updating. There was inside and outside seating and the view was spectacular.  We arrived there a little early and went out back and found it a great location to take some family photos with a terrific background.  The restaurant is actually located in the bottom of a condominium building.

We had a large group and the service was excellent.  Our waiter, Andrew, knew the menu very well and his suggestions were terrific. They offer veal, lamb, chicken, beef, pork and of course fresh fish that is prepared to your liking.  They have a variety of nine different ways to prepare the fish.

If you enjoy Caesar salad you will love the one offered at this restaurant. They prepare it tableside, which is a great experience in itself to watch the server mix the ingredients and toss the salad.  Everyone who had it at our table loved it.  The salad made was huge and it fed the two people who ordered it as well as several others at the table.


I had the Maui waterfront salad with the Maui onion dressing, which our waiter suggested, and I thought that it was terrific.  For my entree I had the Veal Scaloppine A La Piccata and I totally enjoyed it.  Everyone enjoyed the fish selections as well.  The desserts, which were huge, looked fantastic but I was much too full to have any.  Entrees range from approximately $23 - $38.  When you add a appetizer, dessert and drinks it gets very expensive.

Based on our experience I would recommend this restaurant if you are looking to have a nice, elegant meal.  I would not recommend it for small children.
