First time to Maui and staying in Napili. Any good eat choices for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Thanks in advance. Will report back on the Maui eats.

    Gazebo at the Napili Shores resort. You have to get there at 730am when they open because the place is small and there's always a line. Get the Hawaiian pancakes and a glass of POG.
    TRUST me

      If you don't want to wait an hour in line, call in for take out and enjoy breakfast on your lanai!

      Also, if you have a car, drive down Lower Honoapiilani Rd for 3 miles to a place in a strip mall called Honokowai Okazuya & Deli. The have amazing food for half the price of a fancy restaurant. Get the Mahi or ono with sundried tomatoes and mushrooms in a lemon-caper sauce. TO DIE FOR!
      It's a tiny hole in the wall, but the food is outstanding. this is a take out place and there are only a couple places to sit inside or out, but you can walk down to the beach and eat.

          The Sea House at Napili Kai offers a killer-view and quite acceptable food for BLD.

            We often stay either up the road, or down the road, and have been impressed with Peter Merriman's in Kapalua. We had several great dinners at Banyan Tree (Ritz-Carlton), but they had a major overhaul, so cannot comment on them now.

            We have always loved The Gazebo, and Sea House for breakfasts, plus the Plantation House (it burned, and might not yet be reopened?).

              The Bakery in Lahaina - hole in the wall place that makes fantastic bread and sandwiches.

              Poke from Foodland (I'm partial to the Ahi - Hawaiian Style, tako kimchee and raw white crab)

              Fish Tacos from the Fishmarket near Honokawai. You can also get fresh fish for the grill (they have marinades to boot!)

              Iron Limu BBQ place was just fair but convenient

              Local breakfast plates at the Honolua General Store in Kapalua (near Sansei)

              Napili Coffee Store in Napili Plaza for a morning cup of Joe.

              Pineapples from the Farmers Market in Honokawai.

              Wonton Saimin @ Lulu's at Lahaina Cannery

              Make sure you try Ululani's (Shave Ice in Lahaina).....the best ever!

                Love Gazebo and the line gets long but it does go fairly quick.
                Great place for breakfast/lunch.
                My fave for breakfast is Plantation House at Kapalua Golf Course..great views, excellent food and reasonable prices with no wait.
                Sea House in Napili is another good call for b/l/d.

                  Aloha BC,

                  When the line is too long (for us), at the Gazebo, that is where we head - but that was before the fire, so have not recent experiences to play off of.

                        Thank you for "having my back." Not sure why I had not seen the above question, but that is now moot.
