Kihei has quite a few fan-favorite dining options, with most all of them found on the main two-lane road that runs along the coastline (South Kihei Road). Popular eateries along this road include Kihei Café, Da Kitchen, Coconuts Fish Tacos, and Fred’s Mexican Grille, which we all highly recommend and are usually packed with customers.
We have dedicated this blog post to three restaurants worth trying that are not on South Kihei Road, but rather a lesser-known street that runs perpendicular to South Kihei Rd. The street is called Halekuai St. Who knows, after you try one of these recommendations, you may end up returning year after year!
Arguably the fan-favorite pizza option on the south side of the island, Pizza Madness serves up large pizzas the whole family will enjoy. Choose from mouth-watering toppings such as meatballs, salami, bacon, and more. If you aren’t in the mood for pizza, you can choose from pastas, sandwiches, and salads. The bar and flat screen televisions also make Pizza Madness a great option for watching your favorite sports team play.
Chez Meme Baguette Bistro:
Head to this newer French bistro for an unforgettable breakfast or lunch. We have heard our guests rave about the French toast topped with a variety of local fruits, or omelets so full they are bursting at the folds! Lunch menu items also offer something you can’t find many other places on Maui, such as red-wine braised short ribs, lamb, and more. Most lunches are served on/with freshly made bread/toast.
This seafood joint has been on the radar for many years. Definitely the most well-known eating option of the three we have listed, Eskimo Candy is known for their seafood options. We personally recommend the poke bowl, which features three different kinds of fresh poke (raw fish) served over a bed or rice. Visitors can also come to pick up cuts of fresh fish to then take back to one of our condos to barbecue on the grill.
