Dining Out

Maui is home to many great restaurants offering a variety of cuisines in a variety of locations.

Here are some of our favourites sorted by region:

South Shore (Kihei/Wailea)

10 Wailea Gateway Place, Unit B-201 Kihei, Hawaii 96753
Peter Merriman’s Wailea offering. Great food, great atmosphere. Get a seat at the bar in the evening where you get a great view out the window and you get to enjoy the live band that sets up in the lounge most nights. Get a seat on the patio for lunch and enjoy the expansive view. Cocktails are fantastic! Gnocchi is killer….and it’s walking distance (straight up the hill) from the condo. (*This is our Cheers when we’re in Maui).

Tommy Bahama’s Café – at the Shops at Wailea
3750 Wailea Alanui Drive     (808) 875-9983
Tommy Bahama’s Restaurant & Bar is a celebration of the islands, offering a relaxed escape from the hustle and bustle. This is the place to take a break with good food, drinks and shopping. Tommy Bahama’s turns the island experience from wishful thinking to a reality. Try the fish tacos and the tuna avocado appetizer.

Morimoto’s – at the Andaz Hotel
3550 Wailea Alanui Dr, Kihei, HI 96753
Beachfront dining with sushi & other stylish Japanese creations from Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto. Exceptional food in a stunning setting! *Highly recommended

Ferraro’s Bar e Ristorante – at the Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea

Phone: 808/874-8000
Overlooking the ocean from a bluff above Wailea Beach, this outdoor Italian restaurant at the Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea is beautiful both day and night. For lunch, indulge in a lobster sandwich or a quinoa salad topped with teriyaki-glaze tofu. At dinner try the arugula and endive salad and house-made pasta or the osso buco veal Milanese. Live classical music often adds to the atmosphere at dinner time. Go early (5:30pm) and get a table up front to watch the sun set, or grab lunch at the bar.

100 Wailea Ike Dr, Kihei, HI 96753
This pizza restaurant is a 2 minute walk from the condo by the Old Blue club house. Airy, family-owned restaurant & bar serving pizza, drinks & Greek appetizers with open-air seating. Great spot for taking the kids.


Fleetwoods on Front
744 Front St Lahaina, HI 96761
Go to the upper deck which is outfitted with comfy couches and a horseshoe bar and catch the sunset ceremony that happens daily precisely at 6:30pm. There is a traditional Hawaiian conch ceremony followed by a great bagpiper (Mick is of Scottish heritage). Sometimes Mick joins his band on stage. $1 oysters for happy hour daily.

Star Noodle
286 Kupuohi St, Lahaina, HI 1 808-667-5400Asian shared plates, noodle dishes & sake cocktails in an airy, light, wood-trimmed space. **AWESOME food and cocktails! Hard to find spot up at the top of an Industrial park above Lahaina, but worth the trip. Restaurant is usually packed so call ahead for reservations. Ask for a separate table from the long central communal table or sit at the bar. Have the Ahi Avo and the BBQ pork buns. *Highly recommended

Mama’s Fish House is actually a converted beach house in a coconut grove on a secluded white sand beach. Inside, hinged windows open to let in the trade winds and Polynesian artifacts and original oil paintings decorate tropical hardwood walls. The rooms are filled with spectacular flower arrangements and tapa print cloths cover the tables. Outdoor dining is equally exciting, and everyone enjoys watching the windsurfers performing offshore. Go during the day when it is light out to appreciate the views.

Sansei – *Kapalua location

Contemporary sushi and new wave Asian inspired dishes served in a lively setting is what makes Sansei Seafood Restaurant and Sushi Bar a critic’s favorite. Sansei’s sushi chefs are known for their highly imaginative creations, like their signature Panko Crusted Ahi Roll, and the famous Kapalua Butterfly Roll, a colorful delight of salmon, crab, shiromi, and fresh vegetables.Reservations are a must here as it is perennially busy. The sushi is creative and supremely delicious.
