Since we stay in a condo when we’re in Maui majority of our meals are spent at the condo. There are some restaurants though that we have get to while we’re here.
Lahaina Pizza co.
Located on Front St. like most of the restaurants mentioned in this post we came across this restaurant by accident a couple years ago and I’m so glad we did. It’s located upstairs and it’s next to island sole ( my favorite store on Front St.) The menu is simple but delicious, they make a killer Caesar salad, fettuccine and pizza, and they have one of the best mai tai’s I’ve had on Maui. Try to get a table next to the window, you get an awesome view of Front St., the water and Lanai.
This location is fairly new to Front St., they have two other locations one in Paia and the other in Kihei, this restaurant is my new favorite. I got the dinner portion of the fish and chips, it was so good I ate the whole thing! The staff was super friendly and helpful, the restaurant was clean. I don’t have a bad thing to say about this place. It’s a must eat for sure!
There are a few choices for gelato on the island but my sister and I always have to come here, numerous times. It’s a simple little place but their gelato is creamy and flavorful. My favorite is Maui Pie ( coconut, kona coffee, fudge and MacNut) Thank me later.
Located off the highway in Olowalu I’ve wanted to come here for YEARS! Let me tell you it was well worth the wait. Leoda’s gets line out the door busy and for good reason. Great simple food ( salads, hamburgers, sandwiches, hot dogs and pies) they focus on farm fresh and sustainable ingredients and it shows! This trip I got a grilled cheese and an individual macnut chocolate praline pie (!!!) Both were delicious, the pie was really rich but was so good I couldn’t stop eating it. I can’t wait to explore the rest of the menu!
Relish Burger Bistro
This little gem is located at the Westin Resort in Ka’anapali. It’s right next door to where we stay (Ka’anapali Alii) Breakfast here is my favorite. I always get the French toast and a mimosa. The French toast is made on Maui sweet bread and is served with coconut syrup, yeah it’s as amazing as it sounds. I always look forward to breakfast here.
Most of my mornings I walk to Starbucks and get an iced coffee and breakfast ( I’m addicted to the siren, I don’t know what else to say) but my sister and I try to walk down to Whaler’s Village a few times to get coffee here. I’ve had the island latte, which was delicious, but the coconut kona mocha has me hooked! This blended drink puts others to SHAME. I mean coconut, kona coffee, mocha need i say more? Get it and thank me later. It’s that good, just trust me.
My other favorite restaurant is aloha mixed plate, unfortunately we weren’t able to go there this trip as they are closed for a remodel. Hopefully they’ll be open on our next trip.
So there you have it. Are there any hidden gems we’re missing? Let me know in the comments below.
