On our return visit to Maui, we had a great dinner at CafeO'Lei while staying in Waliea. Centrally located in Kihei (right in one of the shopping strip malls), great spot for casual and reasonably priced sit down dinner. Not too hard to get a reservation if you are slightly flexible with your exact time. Good choices from seafood to burgers to chicken. Nice staff and relatively quick for a sit down dinner. We are always jet lagged so three hour dinners at the hotels drive us nuts! Will go again when we are back in December.

The Macadamia Nut Crusted Chicken was fabulous! Our dinners included a fresh salad soft dinner rolls at no extra charge. The meals were about $20-23 priced right for the quality and service! My husband had the Tempura Shrimp and Mahi Mahi with a jasmine rice and carrot slaw that he said was the best, freshest seafood that he has had in years. Napa, the General Manager, went from table to table ensuring all customers were happy and satisfied. Raymond, our waiter, is the most amazing waiter. He had quite a few tables yet somehow managed to make us feel special and insured that we had all that we needed throughout our meal. He has been there for years and provides outstanding customer service each time we visit! I would recommend requesting his section if you have a choice.

Did not like the location, but the food was good. The place smelled of beer. Fairly easy to get a table. Service was good.

We were recommended to go to this restaurant from our concierge and were thoroughly satisfied. The service was excellent, maybe even a little too efficient if that is possible). Our server was Raymond and he provided great suggestions based on what we were looking for. Everything came out hot and quick. We would definitely suggest this restaurant to anyone visiting the area. FYI - the restaurant is on the second floor of an older shopping mall, nothing to look at, but good food.
