Where to Eat in Maui, Hawaii

Maui has some of the yummiest food we have ever tried while traveling. Everything was so fresh and we did not have a bad meal once. We researched, read a million reviews on yelp and google, and tried so many delicious places in Maui. Here is our guide on where to eat in Maui Hawaii.


Having been to different Islands of Hawaii a few times, we have found that eating out and food is much higher priced in Hawaii than other places, but there are a lot of budget friendly places to eat on Maui. We like to splurge every once in a while, but also save as much as possible while traveling. We stayed at a resort that did not have a kitchen but there was a fridge, so stopping at Target when we landed helped a ton. We got chips and salsa, some granola bars, and other small snacks to have on hand so we would not have to buy a bunch of extras. Also stock up on bottled water/ a water bottle so you don’t have to purchase them while out and about.

Snacks/ Treats:

-Ululani’s Shaved Ice- delicious shaved ice $5-10
-Leilani’s- anywhere you can get Hula Pie is a must visit. Leilani’s was super close to our resort and so yummy. The fish tacos were so good, I ordered them multiple times on our visit. The hula pie never lets us down! $5-30
-Malasadas- we just yelped a bakery there, and I cannot remember what it was called, but make sure to try malasadas while in Maui because they are so good.
-Ono Gelato- This shop was in Whaler’s Village right by our hotel. I stopped here more times than I care to admit, but the gelato was so yummy. $4-10

Cheaper Eats:

-The Gazebo- try the macadamia nut pancakes and the fried rice (even if it is breakfast time). We ordered to go instead of waiting in the 2 plus hour long line and ate outside. $2-20
-Star Noodle- get the garlic noodles for sure, but skip the pork belly steamed buns appetizer. We tried a few other dishes and they were all really delicious
Frida’s Mexican Beach House– Order the enchiladas, they were delicious and the salsa was so good!- Baya Bowls– Delicious Acai Bowls $6-12
Leoda’s Pie Shop– delicious mini pies and food too. We had the macaroni and cheese, peanut butter pie, chocolate Mac nut pie, and the chicken pot pie. All were so delicious and we really wanted to try more. $2-20
Kina’ole Grill– coconut shrimp, pulled pork sliders and more! $11-30*
-Aloha Thai Fusion- Maui’s #1 Pad Thai $5-25*
-Jawz Fish Tacos-$4-20 bring cash!*

High End:

-Mama’s Fish House- make a reservation and enjoy one of the most delicious meals ever. We tried the crab cakes, macadamia nut crusted fish and banana crumble. It was all so amazing. $10-100

There is an endless amount of food to try in Maui and we can’t wait to go back. If you enjoyed our guide for where to eat in maui Hawaii, check out our other travel guides.
