Cafe O’Lei

Cafe O’Lei is my favorite moderately priced Maui restaurant.  The food is wonderful and the prices are reasonable.  It’s upstairs in the Rainbow Mall at 2439 South Kihei Road.  Phone 808-891-1368.

Cafe O’Lei Kihei is open for lunch and dinner.  The chef-owners are the same as the Cafe O’Lei at the Dunes at Maui Lani golf course, the Makawao Steak House, and the more upscale AmiAmi in the Maui Coast Hotel.  See below for some specific Cafe O’Lei menu items as well as photos.

Dinner at Cafe O’Lei costs about 30% less than you’d pay at other Maui restaurants with food this good.  If you are staying in Kihei or Wailea, be sure to have at least one lunch or dinner here.   Cafe O'Lei on Urbanspoon
