I enjoyed the gelato here so much that I came back three times! The location is nothing special at all, however the gelato is delicious. My favourite flavour was the POG (passionfruit, orange and guava). The prices are on the higher side however the gelato was worth it. The staff were also friendly and allowed me to sample different flavours which was appreciated.

“Really good gelato in Kihei”
Reviewed 22 March 2014

While there was nothing special about the location (no views or ambience), go here if you're nearby and try a few of the many enticing gelato flavors. The small staff on hand was very friendly, and glad to offer samples and suggestions before you make the hard choice of which ones to order. The quality was excellent. Not cheap, but worth it.

“First Gelato experience - color me IMPRESSED!”
Reviewed 14 March 2014

I have never had gelato, and although a little embarrassed, I asked our server "just what is gelato?" Turns out it was her first day on the job, but the owner quickly jumped in to explain all the ins and outs. They make it fresh right there, and it is healthier than ice cream. It was late when we arrived (9 or 10pm) and they were about to close. We ordered 2 flavors each and I found all 4 delightful. As we sat out front on the stairs, the owner popped out to check if we might need anything else before he closed up. I was thoroughly impressed with the service, and will certainly return next time we are in Kihei.

Friendly staff, lots of free samples and advice, and, of course, outstanding gelato - rich and thick and creamy, with excellent flavours.
