Italian Restaurant

“Casanova is a local Makawao favorite for drinks at the bar or a nice sit-down Italian meal. The food is great and it is a relaxed place to enjoy dinner with friends or family.”

Vegetarian / Vegan Restaurant

“So very very very good!!!!! This place will NOT disappoint your tastebuds! Has a great vibe, great people and great food! On the pricey side, but paying for quality raw foods and healthy deliciousness is worth it sometimes! Wonderful smoothies, fresh juices and lunch plates, or they also have things ready made to grab and go, out of the cooler.”

Deli / Bodega
$$
“ This fabulous cash only eatery is usually filled with locals. If you are not looking for it, you will probably will miss it. Located in a small shopping center on Lower Honoapiilani Rd, this small eatery is one of the best hidden gems on the island. Okazuya serves primary local dishes, served with the classic side of rice and mac salad. Their Mahi Mahi Lemon Caper Sautee is to die for! Also, try their famous Chicken Katsu or Korean Style Chicken B-B-Q. Take a break from all the fancy restaurants on Maui, and see where the locals eat! We can promise you this will be one of your new go-to eateries.”

Food & Drink Shop
“Closest big name grocery store with common brands. However, if you are looking for local and/or organic foods, we highly recommend Mana Foods in Paia. Foodland is quite expensive.”

Grocery Store
“The Napili Market is located at the Napili Plaza; they sell everything offered in a typical chain grocery store. Napili Market is the nearest full service grocery store to the Resort. However, prices are on the higher side. We do recommend Napili Market for their “Maui Potato Chips.” These amazing chips are not always easy to find but Napili Market does a respectable job of keeping them in stock.”
