Can’t Miss Restaurants in Maui
A guide to dining well on the island
Eating well in Maui comes easily, but here are three restaurants renown for their spot-on food and warm, island vibes.
Perched on Maui’s North Shore, this beloved mainstay is where locals head to celebrate a special occasion. Though there’s breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean and a sumptuous seafood-centric menu – which names the fishermen responsible for the daily catch – dining here is far from a stuffy experience.
At this bustling, lively eatery, locally celebrated chef Peter Merriman’s kitchen turns out an expansive menu of Hawaiian-inspired cuisine. There’s something for every appetite, from crispy, wood-fired pizzas (featuring made-from-scratch dough) to bountiful salads (the organic kale is topped with local onions and macadamia nuts) to hearty sandwiches.
For one of the best breakfasts on the island, beeline to this restaurant in the Azeka Makai shopping center. In the mood for something light? Try the signature acai bowl, a refreshing mix of juicy acai and other berries, crunchy granola, and coconut milk. In the mood for something indulgent? Try the Black & Blue Ahi Benedict topped with fresh tuna and cajun hollandaise.
