Treating yourself to delicious foods is one of the best parts about vacation! It's like calories don't count! ;) Maui has an extensive list of amazing restaurants on the island that range from mom&pop restaurants to five star dining experiences.
I've listed some of my favorite restaurants in Maui below!
**MAP: Restaurants are listed in BLUE; top attractions are in RED**
Maui Brewing Co ($$) -
Kihei, Maui and Lahaina, Maui
When in Maui, drink like the locals. :) Maui Brewing Co has a wide variety of amazing beers to try. You'll see their beer at any local bar and in the grocery stores here on the island. However, I loved going to the brewery (two locations on the island) to try some of their food as well. The wait was long but worth it. My favorite beer is the Bikini Blonde!
Mama’s Fish House ($$$) –
This is a beautiful restaurant located next to the beach offering great views of sunset. It’s also the last place you’ll see before the Road To Hana. In other words, it’s the first place you’ll see when you’re returning from the Road to Hana, which makes this a very popular place in the afternoons/evenings. Most people finish the Road To Hana and stop here for food or drinks. If you want to do this, make reservations far in advance for dinner. It also might be wise to pack a set of nicer clothes to change into after the Road to Hana, depending on what you did on the drive.
Grotto Bar ($) –
The Grotto bar, located in the Hyatt, is known for being the "Cave Bar". Nestled between waterfalls and cave surroundings, its a unique atmosphere to grab a drink! Guests at the Hyatt have the luxury of swimming up to this unique bar, but visitors can still visit the bar and dine here.
Kula Lodge ($) -
This is the perfect pit-stop after the sunrise at Haleakala. You'll pass this on your way down the volcano. They have a beautiful view and great breakfast food. I even got a Maui Mimosa! Hopefully the fog isn't too bad on this morning so you have a good view. If it is bad, you'll just feel like you're dining in the clouds!
Donut Dynamite ($$) -
One word: yum. These brioche donuts from "Donut Dynamite" are made fresh each and every day. They have a wide range of flavors that rotate each day/week. Follow them on Instagram and they will post the flavors of the day each morning. However, note that once they sell out, they're out. This means they could be completely out of donuts by 10AM, or earlier.
Paia Fish Market ($) -
Paia, Maui and Lahaina, Maui
This place is sooooooo good. It's almost like a fast food fresh fish shop, but better. I've tried almost everything on their menu and it's all so tasty - you can't go wrong with any
Leoda's Kitchen and Pie Shop ($) -
Whether you just stop in for a Pie-To-Go, or you stay for a meal, you'll be so happy you stopped by! This shop has the tastiest homemade pies with a good variety of flavors. You can order your pie in advance and pick it up or window shop all of their options when you get there.
