Paia Fish Market
$–$$ Central Maui (Paia) SEAFOOD

This hugely popular restaurant serves some of the freshest and best-
prepared seafood on the island. It’s nothing fancy — colorful and crowded,
with happy diners elbow to elbow at picnic tables, chowing down on what-
ever’s fresh off the day’s boat, served on disposable dishware. But what-
ever you order, it’s bound to be fresh, well prepared, and delicious. Place
your order at the counter, and then find a seat. The mahimahi fish and chips
is always lightly breaded and perfectly crisp, and the generous portion is
a bargain at $13. The charbroiled fish is always what it should be; if ono is
in season, don’t miss the opportunity to enjoy this firm and moist local fish.
Even though the house specialty is seafood, the chicken selection or burger
(also locally supplied, by the Maui Cattle Company) are also well prepared
if there’s a fish-phobe in your group — a testament to this place’s commit-
ment to serving quality food. There’s a good beer and wine selection, too.
Well worth the drive, especially if you’re tired of resort prices.
See map p. 125. 100 Hana Hwy. (at Baldwin Avenue), Paia. % 808-579-8030. www.
paiafishmarket.com. Reservations not taken. Main courses: $9–$21. MC, V.
Open: Daily 11 a.m.–9:30 p.m. (until 4:30 p.m. July 4, Oct 31, Dec 24, Dec 31). Closed
Jan 1, Thanksgiving, Dec 25.

Peggy Sue’s
$ South Maui (Kihei) AMERICAN

Step back in time to the fabulous ’50s at this gleaming retro-style diner.
Cherry cokes, egg creams, beefy burgers, and old-fashioned shakes are the
order of the day. This place is old-fashioned all the way, and I love it. But
it’s not just about nostalgia: The burgers are juicy; the fries, crispy; and
the malts, as creamy as they come. It’s a good choice for a satisfying,
affordable, all-American meal. Don’t miss the opportunity to spin some
vintage tunes on the genuine Wurlitzer jukebox!
In Azeka Place II shopping center, 1279 S. Kihei Rd. (at the north end of South Kihei
Road, at Piikea Avenue), Kihei. % 808-875-8944.www.peggysues-maui.com. Main
courses: $6–$15. DC, MC, V. Open: Sun–Thurs 11 a.m.–9 p.m.; Fri–Sat 11 a.m.–10 p.m.

Penne Pasta Cafe
$ West Maui (Lahaina) ITALIAN

This casual, wallet-friendly walk-up cafe is a welcome antidote to Lahaina’s
largely high-priced dining scene. Housed in a charming, simple storefront
a couple of blocks from bustling Front Street, it’s the brainchild of long-
time Maui chef Mark Ellman (see Mala, an Ocean Tavern, reviewed earlier
in this chapter), who decided that gourmet food doesn’t have to be expen-
sive or overly fussy. As you might expect, the specialties of the house are
beautifully prepared homemade pastas, which have always been perfectly
cooked on my visits. I like the slow-simmered penne puttanesca in Mark’s

own pomodoro sauce; baked penne New York style, with provolone, parme-
san, mozzarella, and braised beef; excellent linguine in buttery clam sauce;
and the unusual but terrific entree-size niçoise salad, prepared with garlic
ahi and tossed in a red-onion Dijon vinaigrette. Pizzas, sandwiches, and
traditional Italian desserts, such as panna cotta and tiramisu, round out a
very good, value-priced menu. A kids’ menu is also available. Thank you,
Mark!
See map p. 154. 180 Dickenson St., Lahaina. % 808-661-6633. www.pennepasta

DC, DISC, MC, V. Open: Mon–Fri 11 a.m.–9:30p.m.; Sat–Sun 5–9:30 p.m.

Pizza Paradiso
$ West Maui (Honokowai) ITALIAN

This sit-down pizzeria serves up top-quality pies that manage to wow even
skeptical New Yorkers (really!). In addition to a long list of create-your-own
traditional toppings, Pizza Paradiso also offers a variety of theme pies —
from the Maui Wowie (with ham and pineapple) to the Jimmy Hoffa (moz-
zarella buried under tons of pepperoni) — plus pastas; fresh, bounteous
salads; and surprisingly good desserts (including a lovely homemade
tiramisu). It’s a terrific choice for bargain-hunting families, or anybody who
needs a break from high-priced ahi for a while. The Kaanapali location is
an express takeout joint, but you can enjoy your pie at a table in the adja-
cent Whaler’s Village food court. Both locations offer free delivery in the
immediate area.
See map p. 122. In the Honokowai Marketplace (next to the Star Market), 3350
Honoapiilani Rd., Honokowai (south of Kahana). % 808-667-2929. www.pizza
paradiso.com. Main courses: Full-size pizzas $12–$26; pastas and sandwiches
$6–$12. MC, V. Open: Daily 11 a.m.–10 p.m.

The Plantation House
$$$$–$$$$$ West Maui (Kapalua) HAWAII
REGIONAL/MEDITERRANEAN

Overlooking luxuriant golf greens and the stunning Kapalua coastline, the
Plantation House may have the most glorious setting on Maui. The open,
airy country club–style dining room features crisp white linens; teak wood
chairs, hand-carved with a pineapple motif; and soft tropical colors. At
night, a glowing fireplace adds to the romance. Chef Alex Stanislaw and
his team have crafted a one-of-a-kind Asian-Mediterranean fusion menu
that changes frequently to take advantage of fresh seasonal produce.
Expect to find such dishes as a Tuscan-style rib-eye steak with garlic
mashed potatoes and goat’s milk Gorgonzola cheese; macadamia nut and
goat cheese salad with Kula greens, Kalamata olives, and passion-fruit
vinaigrette; or roasted Molokai pork tenderloin with caramelized Maui
onions. Fresh-caught island fish is the star of the menu, with several prepa-
rations available, including the divine Rich Forest option. (The fish is
pressed with bread crumbs and porcini mushroom powder, sautéed, and
