The view from the upper floor is specular. But don't be fooled by other review. You will not find fish here, except for fish tacos, and perhaps a special of the day.

this location of the Cafe O Lei family of very good to great restaurants has been not only closed for 10 years or so, but is now on it's 3rd 'new life' as another eatery... first after Cafe O Lei was 'Whose the Boss', then Bistro, now 808 on Main, the Wailuku version of long time 808 Deli in Kihei...

These folks catered my daughter's wedding at Olowalu Plantation House on Maui. Their manager Marcie was wonderful to work with. On the day of the wedding, they were spectacular. Their quality and attention to detail was noticed and appreciated by all our guests. The food was delicious, and the service was excellent. Cafe O'Lei was not our cheapest option, but... More

Stopped for dinner and was pleased. They had great service and good specials prepared correctly and served hot and fast. Place filled up fast so make a reservation. Good bar menu. Located on the main street in Kihei with good parking.

This was the most reasonably priced, GOOD food we had on Maui. Ate twice at restaurants in the Four Seasons and left disappointed, but wished I had another night to come back here!

After happy hour went here for our 40th with daughter and new husband. The place is upstairs and the decor is quite nice with lots of dark wood. The problem is that it is very noisy which makes it hard to talk. I would not recommend this spot if you are planning lots of conversation. The food was ok but... More

I have had the chicken curry salad which was quite tasty. My friend had the fish plate lunch which seemed to be ok. The atmosphere is quite busy especially on Sundays, but the prices are pretty good. The service could be better.Sitting outside is nice it is on the golf course.

Note to self: do not ask a 30-something paddleboard enthusiast his recommendation for dinner. I'm sure the food was probably great, but we didn't even stay. It was loud and cramped and full of kids running around. After having been to Spago and even Tommy Bahama's, this was not the experience we wanted for our last evening in Maui. We... More

The shrimp cocktail is almost a meal by itself. Go ahead and get the prime rib or a seafood dish too.
