We eat here every time we go to Kihei, it is always good, we have never been disappointed, the onion soup is so good and the plate lunch specials. This time we also tried their restaurant the Dunes, had the best Mahi Mahi special.

Arriving for lunch we were promptly seated by a charming hostess. The rather large room was deceiving as the side tables were separated by loose sheer drapes giving you a sense of privacy. The menu was concise with a variety of salads, soups, sandwiches and...More

We've eaten here several times, and it never disappoints. We used to travel all the way to Kaanapali to eat at Roy's, but no more - we get dishes every bit as good as Roy's right here in Kihei at Cafe O'Lei. Our last night...More
