Description: In the early days of the sugar plantations, lunch was a simple affair. Plantation workers gathered in the fields for their mid-day meal. The Japanese laborers would bring teriyaki beef with rice and pickled vegetables. Seated next to them might be their Filipino neighbors with the traditional dish adobo or perhaps a pork or chicken stew. The Koreans had their kalbi or marinated ribs and the Chinese a rice noodle and vegetable dish called chow fun. Hawaiians were known for their kalua pig, roasted in an underground oven called an imu. It wasn't long before they began to share their foods with one another and the "mixed plate" was born. Aloha Mixed Plate features true "Local" traditional plate lunches with open air seating directly on the ccean. We are open for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner.

We headed here on a tourist guide indication. The guide said about the hawaiian food and nothing about all th rest of the menu, this should have been hint.
Let's start to say that the place is nice, on the beach, near to a luau place for tourists so you can hear the music and enjoy the meal.
Quite crowded in the evening but the staff will do its best to help you find a table.
Menu is only for a small part hawaiian: lau lau, kalua pig and alhi plate. All the rest is a mix of usual american dishes (sandwiches and even burger....never let a customer complain!) and some pan asian dishes.
We were a group of 6 and the ones who had lau lau and kalua pork had a decent experience; unfortunately the ones who had the seafood sandwich were the unlucky people.
The sandwich actually featured a bun (slightly sweet...) instead of the flat bread, the slice of fish meat was really small.
At first we noticed that the fries were cold...stone cold! We let the kind waiter know and he brought a new load of warm fries. Actually we soon realized the whole dish was stone cold so we let it know to the waiter and we finished our meal anyway.
The waiter said that he talked to the manager of the inconvenience of the cold dish but the manager never showed up even up for some excuses.
We must save the kind helpful and gentle waiter who really did his best to fix the whole thing although he was casualty of "friendly fire" from the cook and the manage himself. The price was about 18 US each person, really overpriced for the quality of the food.

The mai thais were delicious as was the island fair. Not sure what the Yelp reviews are talking about, the food was delicious. Maybe a bit overpriced, but it's Maui, all food is overpriced. All in all the staff was very nice and friendly and the food was a notch above fast food Hawaiian.

I loved the poke and the mac salad! Also the steak is great. The fish and chicken weren't that great, which is why I only gave 4 stars.

Hi This place is much further from the buzzing area of Front street than first thought. I had the beach platter and shared it with my daughter. When it arrived it didn't look much but in reality it was enough. The food was tasty though and the views are beautiful adds to the real ambiance of the place.
I had dessert but they don't offer ice cream, which I think is sacrilege and only serve whipped fake cream, not great.
I would return but just not have dessert, unless they get ice cream lol

Without exaggeration I just tasted the worst French fries I have ever eaten in my adult life. Disgusting doesn't even come close. How can you possibly screw up Fries that badly???
