I had the honey roasted pork with macadamia nuts, mashed potatoes and broccoli. The pork was the best I have ever tasted! I could almost cut it with my fork it was so tender. A must visit for a wonderful meal!

Great friendly staff. Good portions. I've had the mahi mahi and the new York strip and it's delicious. Prices are OK. Not super cheap but I don't care as long as the food is on point! 🙂

Cafe O'Lei is one of the fantastic treasures of Kihei, Maui. The service is excellent, the food is wonderful and the prices are reasonable. My wife and I eat here multiple times whenever we're in Maui. The lychee martinis are a little bit of heaven.

Those who greeted and seated us were the excellent part of this restaurant. Ambience is next. If you're not picky, this place is ok. But Maui offers a great variety of places that offer fresh, organic, creative food selections. This place was just not one...More

If you are looking for an ocean view restaurant, this isn't it. Try Five Palms. Excellent ocean view restaurant.
