My family and I have been coming here ever since they opened up. Whenever we're on Maui, this place is always one of our favorite places to eat. Their food is delicious and prices are very reasonable. You get good value for your money. Try their chicken over rice with the sweet and spicy sauce. It's one of their specialties.

Super fast service, big menu, and great food. My wife and I enjoyed the food and coffee tremendously. We did this after surfing and it hit the spot.

Casual atmosphere. Wonderful food at (for the Island) very reasonable prices and generous portions. Cocktails mixed well.The waitstaff was attentive, friendly and helpful. We will definitely go back. Don't let the second story location scare you, it's worth climbing a flight of stairs. Don't miss the signature Maui Onion Soup.

We were extremely pleased with the food selection, presentation and price. The restaurant is extremely busy during high season, make reservations if you can. You can at least call ahead to get on their list. Several groups were leaving as we came, unwilling to wait 30 or so minutes The restaurant is a bit noisy and we were glad to... More

We always visit this place for lunch. The have good cocktails, friendly service, and tasty, inexpensive food. It is a good standby when you just want to eat and want to know for sure it will all be ok.

We visited he Cafe O Lei during our visit to Maui. We had just arrived in Maui and wanted a casual restaurant for our first night. We didn't have a reservation, but were welcomed in true Hawaiian hospitality. The menu was very diverse with excellent choices for tired travellers, and the medals were delivered quickly by a very pleasant waiter.... More

No fancy view but the food was outstanding the 1st night we went! Prices were reasonable for the amount of food!

We enjoyed a calamari appetizer followed by blackened Mahi Mahi over seasoned rice with a side of cold slaw. They also serve wine and beer. Very busy place and worth a visit.

The food was delicous and beautifully arranged. The cocktails were reasonably priced and delicious as well! Many seemed to be creative (not same-old same-old) with matching Maui-style names. I found the Silversword (a rather tart cocktail) with the Kona coffee Créme Brûlée a perfect pairing!! Atmosphere was so-so, nothing special, but quality of food and service were all I needed!
