North & Central Maui Restaurants
We've listed some of our favorite north and central Maui restaurants with reviews, photos, and maps.
Lead by the creative mind and driven spirit of Maui's 2015 Chef of the Year, Chef Jeff Scheer utilizes his close proximity to the on-property farms to inspire incredible menus that change almost daily. The Mill House Restaurant officially opened in early 2016 on the Maui Tropical Plantation and has quickly become one of the top spots to hit while visiting Maui. They comfortably boast "We are the farm!" And it's evident from the fresh, delicious food they serve in this gorgeous setting. Here you'll sit on a large lanai as you look across a serene lagoon to the majestic Waikapu Valley. Reservations: (808) 270-0333
Also on the Maui Tropical Plantation property and run by the same Mill House chefs, Maui Chef's Table is an exclusive, 7-course dining event held on select weekends (usually 4-8 times per month.) Unlike many other restaurants, it's one of those intimate, unforgettable experiences that you'll never forget. unique dishes from local ingredients, casual and fun environment all make it a first on our list of things to do when visiting Maui. The approachability of the chefs in this environment make for a real treat for foodies. These events usually sell out 2 weeks ahead of time, so book early: (808) 270-0303
Café Des Amis is hands-down the best spot to hit in Paia. The food is outstanding and the prices are low. They have delicious curry dishes as well as the best crepes you'll have this side of the planet. The crepes are the real reason to visit Café Des Amis. You'll find the service can sometimes be off, but the food is consistently great. It's located across the street from the best market on the Island, Mana Foods.
If you're looking for a funky pizza joint with great food and fun atmosphere, make your way to Flatbread Pizzeria in Paia Town. They've got a lively bar with excellent drinks, and their pizza is fantastic. Gluten-free? They can take care of you with gluten-free pizza dough too.
Mama's Fish House has the charm of real Maui. The service is good and the food is excellent. You'll find that all of the fish on the menu is labeled with who actually caught it earlier that day. Fantastic food, unparalleled atmosphere, and steep prices make Mama's Fish House a famous spot to eat on Maui.
