Cafe O’lei, located above Auntie Snorkel in the Rainbow Plaza in south Kihei, is a very popular restaurant among locals. The food is delicious and inexpensive, the atmosphere lively and the staff friendly. It’s a great spot, though many would pass it without knowing it was there.
It’s usually pretty busy for both lunch and dinner, so we often put our name in and then stroll around the shops below. Da Kitchen is also located in this shopping center, which has great local grinds that comes in HUGE portions at a low price. Often we end up sharing 1 plate between 2 of us (depending on what it is.)
Auntie Snorkel is just down stairs and has some really nice folks that rent beach, surf, and snorkel equipment as well as help you with setting up activities. Ask for Mark or Paul.
