Café O'Lei in Kihei, Maui was recommended to us by some local residents. We were not disappointed, to the contrary. As you see from our title we had lettuce wraps for starters and short ribs for our entrée. Absolutely yummy. The service was fantastic. If you are looking for a special dining experience don't hesitate to try Café O'Lei.

We were referred by some local residents of Kihei to try Café Ole. We arrived during Happy Hour and decided to have a cocktail and some lettuce wraps before we were assigned a table for dinner. We have never had such good lettuce wraps; almost a meal in itself. For dinner we ordered short ribs and prime rib. It was... More

Cafe O Lei has not been at this location for over 10 years! 808 on Main is the third eatery since C O L left long ago and far away. C O L is still on the golf course at Maui Lani with excellent lunch and dinner and fantastic view of west Maui mountains/sunsets

We found this restaurant in a tour book and decided to try it out while staying in Wailea in December 2013. It is located on the edge of Kihei in a strip mall. Very nice dining room. You have to go up stairs from the parking lot to access it. We enjoyed our five meals served to us. Three were... More

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
