Dinner recommendations

Hi we will be staying in wialea over the holidays. We are two adults and a 17year old. Any recommendations for dinner. Fancy is not a requirement, just good food. We will be in wialea seven nights and in waikiki for one night only. Thanks.

Aloha,

Have a great time! There aren't many inexpensive places in Wailea itself, but ten minutes up the road is the town of Kihei. Lots of choices there, from Coconut's Fish Tacos, Cafe O Lei, 3's Bar and Grill, Cafe 808 and Deli to name a few.

At the entrance to Wailea, try Monkeypod Kitchen, Pita Paradise too.

Might add Gannon's at the Gold Golf course in Wailes for breakfast or lunch, wonderful views. Kihei cafe ..very down to earth breakfast and lunch, order inside, sit outside to eat.

Paia is only 30 minutes away..Paia fish Market and FlatBread Pizza Co are two of several good places in Paia.

All of the ones SW listed are great.

Sansei has 50% off Sunday and Mon 5 til 6. But you will need to get in line about 4 or 4:15 to get in and place your order before the cut off time at 6. Tues-Fri 25% off when seated at 5:30 and orders placed by 6.You can make reservations T - F.

Depends on budget of course, but Cheeseburgers in the Shops at Wailea has decent prices. There is also a deli in the Whalers General Store located there.

Stella Blue's is one of my favorites in Kihei, the Kihei Caffe is a great place for breakfast. Not overly expensive, yet not cheap is Buzz's Warf in Maalaea for dinner on the bay.

Aloha,

Arrrghhh...his head will soon be too big to fit through the doorways!! But I'll tell him he has another fan on TA.

What WW are you taking? If you are going out of Kaanapali, you could prowl around Whaler's Village after it, have dinner at Cane & Taro, Hula Grill maybe.

If you are going out of Lahaina, you could wander down the street from the harbor to Pacific O, at 505 Front. Or go the other direction, wander through the shops and galleries, maybe eat at one of the places along that stretch.

The Banyan Tree (next to the Harbor) will be lit up, it's pretty cool.

Lahaina and Kaanapali can easily take a day to really explore and enjoy!
