    Convenient location and great atmosphere! Can be fancy or casual whatever you make it. Celebrated our anniversary by stopping for lunch here. Great food, great service and good prices for the quality and quantity of food!

    Go where the locals go! Cafe O'Lei has great fish dishes, pizzas, sushi, salads and amazing raw bar on weekends. Probably the best value on the island.

    Best Lunch Specials! The fish special is absolutely delicious and is one of the best deals you'll find on the island.

    Yen, if you are in Kihei for an evening, a nice local place to have dinner. Many Asian fusion plates. Wait staff is attentive and friendly. I had prime rib the last time and it was delicious. It is crowded most nights with locals... which tells you something.

    Decent food and large portions for the price. The specials of the day are usually a good bet. Service is brisk and friendly although wait times can be a little long at times.

    I LOVE the curry chicken salad at lunch!
    Busy whether you go for lunch or dinner! Best to go early for lunch if you want the fish special. Reservations highly recommended if going for dinner.

    LUNCH is the key! Same great meals as dinner, but half the price. The daily special is always a winner.

    For a nice, white tablecloth dinner, this is an excellent choice. They have good sushi and moderately priced seafood and steak dishes. The short rib is to die for! A nice alternative to the casual options that are abundant in Kihei, and it’s easy walking distance from the condo.

    I lot of people rave about this place. We found the food to be good, however it was very noisy and cold.

    Open 10:30 am - 10:00 pm, closed Mondays. This is the largest of the Cafe O'Lei restaurants, with the most extensive menu. We love this group of family-owned restaurants and seek them out whenever we are near one of them.

    Had a great dinner. The Onion Soup was fantastic and the short ribs were delicious. Also had a great calamari/ahi appetizer. Would come back here again for certain.

    The prices are good for the service and food that you get. The people are very nice and friendly. You have to try the Macadamia Nut crusted sandwich! It's so delicious.
