Cafe O’Lei Napili CLOSED in November of 2012. It was an excellent mid-priced dinner restaurant in the Napili Shores condo in Napili, on the west side of Maui, a few miles north of Lahaina and Kaanapali Beach. It was at 5315 Lower Honoapiilani Road, at the former location of Fish & Poi, and before that the location of Orient Express. This is at the same condo complex as the Gazebo restaurant. Phone 808-442-3700.
Cafe O’Lei is a group of Maui restaurants that included this Cafe O’Lei Napili, plus Cafe O’Lei Kihei and Cafe O’Lei at the Dunes Maui Lani. All are very good and all give you the opportunity to enjoy some of Maui’s best food without having to pay the high prices of many of Maui’s fine dining restaurants.
Cafe O’Lei Napili was an indoor restaurant with a small view of the distant ocean, plus a pretty view of gardens, a koi pond, and a small waterfall. The menu included Maui’s best French Onion Soup en Croute, and several sandwich choices, as well as seafood, chicken and steak entrees. See the menu list and food photos below for details. It was open for dinner only, Tuesday through Saturday (closed Sunday-Monday).
If you are staying on West Maui, this was a very good place for dinner at reasonable prices, away from the crowds.
