Manana Garage CLOSED in 2008. It was a businessperson’s restaurant in an office building in Kahului, with some of the best food on Maui. It was at 33 Lono Avenue (corner of Kaahumanu) in the green Kahului Office Building. Phone 808-873-0220.
Bistro Casanova opened in 2009 at that same location.
Manana Garage billed itself as Latino or South American or Mexican food, but was a lot more than that. The decor was colorful, friendly and casual, but the food was fine-dining quality. Some of the food was spicy. The restaurant was open for dinner every day, and for lunch Monday-Saturday. See below for some specific Manana Garage menu items as well as photos.
Manana Garage was by far the best restaurant in Kahului. If you wanted to get away from the tourists and eat where the local business people eat, this was the place.
