Favorite Maui Dining

The next best thing to the beach on Maui…is eating on Maui!! There are some of the most amazing restaurants all around the island. We put together a list of all of our favorites as a quick guide.

Mama’s Fish House in Paia has great food and awesome views. AMAZING.

Lahaina Grill in Lahaina- is Lory’s favorite restaurant.

Humu– at Grand Wailea. The setting outside is really nice, tropical.

Tommy Bahama’s Restaurant at the Shops of Wailea. the BEST Pina Coladas and great happy hour! The macadamia nut crusted Opakapaka is Matt’s favorite.

KO – Fairmont Kea Lani- Wailea

Ferraro’s – at Four Seasons, Wailea

Spago– at Four Seasons, Wailea

Gannon’s – Great Happy Hour and great for post golf at Wailea Golf Course.

Manoli’s Up the hill from the Shops of Wailea. This Italian themed restaurant is a perfect place for pizza when you are sick of seafood! Great bar and many TVs.

Cheeseburger In Paradise There is one in the Shops of Wailea and one on Front Street in Lahaina which has a great view. The food isn’t the best, but the Front Street location is on the ocean. Good Happy Hour too.

Mulligan’s on the Blue – in Wailea a fun Irish bar in Hawaii!! AMAZING VIEWS. Best for beer and Happy Hour, the food is starting to slip.

Five Palms – Beautiful location in Wailea on the beach. Go for Happy Hour and to catch the sunset.

Fred’s Mexican Cafe – Don’t laugh. I know, you don’t come to Maui for Mexican food. But when you have had sushi and mahi mahi for days straight, this place is good! Good drinks, across from the beach, has a good breakfast too, and did I mention across from the beach? Great for Happy Hour to watch the sunset or whales.

Longhi’s– Shrimp Longhi is great, and if they bring back the Coconut Cream Pie – get a piece! One at the shops of Wailea and one on Front Street in Lahaina.
Paia Fish Market A fun hole in the wall fish market. Family style seating on picnic tables.

The Plantation House. Nice views of the ocean and surrounding Islands. Oh, and if you are here in early January you just may see Rory, Tiger, Sergio, Phil or any number of other PGA stars as they play in the Champions Tournamet here in Kapalua.

Kihei Caffe On the strip in Kihei, good breakfast (they are only open for breakfast and lunch) and cash only.

Sarento’s on the Beach Great food and views! Keawakapu Beach, Wailea

Haliimaile General Store Yes, go – great food and a fun little adventure. Up Country, in Haliimaile.

Duo At the Four Seasons in Wailea

And last but not lease is Coconut’s Fish Cafe is a family-friendly casual fresh fish restaurant. Fish tacos to fliets they have wonderful fresh food and quick too! Two locations in Kihei (Kamaole Plaza and Azeka Plaza)

    Matt & Bonnie, I so appreciate your recommendations and we look forward to participating in a few “Happy Aloha Hours” this year in May. As a thought to consider…I am currently looking for healthy plant based options and have been referred by a Ekahi Village vacay regular last year that “Joy’s Place Deli” Kihei — tag: Smart Eating (808) 879-9258 is a winner
    Also, “Fork and Salad” Kihei— tag: Quick bite, healthy options- casual (808) 879-3675
    Aloha, Mary
