Decent spots in Maui -Kihei

Well our fave is Alexander's in Kiehi and the Paia Fish Market but we'd love to hear about decent food that isn't a fortune near Keihei. Any type of food recommendations are welcome. Sadly the Maui Onion is closed. We're hear for another week. Mahalo

  1. Just got back from the Paia Fish Market and they get the edge over Alexander's. I loved the fish sandwich - better bun, a touch of chesse, slaw, and a larger fish fillet. Also had good onion rings and seafood chowder. Kids favor Alexander's.

    I was glad to hear that David Paul has a a new place open. We may try and check it out if I an get them to give us a kids pasta option. I still remember the lobster risotto and it's been over ten years!

    1. Have you tried Roy's or sansei?

      1. Have you looked into Joe's? It is Bev Gannon's second restaurant.

          I have always enjoyed Joe's and Joe himself! He's a cool dude! The meatloaf is awesome!
          They serve martini's in a glass sunken into a bed of crushed ice. It's great! We also really
          enjoyed Mala in the Marriott.

        2. My kids love Da Kitchen for breakfast. Roy's is very good for kids for dinner. Now my kids are ofended by being offered child menus, they unfortunately have expensive taste (except breakfast) and order lobster whenever they can.

          1. You may be headed out of town already, but if it's not too late...

            Second Da Kitchen. Way too much food. Pretty good. Cheap for the quantity.

            Joe's too. Upscale, but not confiscatory.

            Eskimo Candy Seafood. Retail fish, plus a good plate lunch.

            Paradise Sushi in the Long's Drugs shopping center.

            The Greek place down south can be pretty good, altholugh it is neither cheap nor fantastic.
