1. Paia Fish Market – Paia

Paia Fish Market tops off our list of the best Maui restaurants.  This gem is located just off the Road to Hana. It is a great place to dine in – try the fish tacos – or to buy fresh seafood & cook yourself if you have access to a kitchen. Reasonably priced. Favored by tourists and surfers.

2. Cafe Mambo – Paia

Cafe Mambo is an open-air eatery with eclectic dishes and funky surfer vibes. The restaurant, bar and cafe is so popular that additional locations have opened in NYC and the Hamptons. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus feature upscale items with reasonable prices. We think the Kalua Duck Quesadillas sound delicious, but if you want something a little more “safe”, try the Classic BLT.

3. Cafe des Amis – Paia

Cafe des Amis is an Indian-Mediterranean fusion eatery serving dishes like savory and sweet crepe options (including these tofu and spinach crepes, pictured above), salads, and indian curries. Open for breakfast & brunch only.

4. Longhi’s – Lahaina

Longhi’s opened in 1976 with a loyal following of customers. The decor and ambiance feels like you are stepping back in time, and the menu has barely been changed since they opened. Unique menu items include prawns amaretto and the special dish called Shrimp Longhi.

5. Hana Ranch Restaurant – Hana

Hana Ranch is a rustic eatery located off the Road to Hana. Expect to find local ingredients served up in dishes with reasonable prices. A convenient place to stop before setting out along the Hana Highway, since it is located near Hasegawa General Store and the Hana Ranch Store. The pizza served on Wednesday nights only is a great option!

6. Polli’s Mexican Restaurant – Makawao

Polli’s is a great place for Mexican food on the islands – one of the only options in all of Hawaii worth trying, according to locals. Affordable traditional Mexican dishes like shrimp fajitas and quesadillas served in relaxed atmosphere.
