True, a vacation on one of Hawaii’s most beautiful islands is a dream come true. Hopefully you’ve already figured out that Maui condo rentals are the best decision when it comes to accommodations, but what about food? Nearly everyone knows that one of the most anticipated aspects of going on vacation is enjoying different and delicious foods. For some reason, you just get hungrier when you’re away from home and all of the foods you eat on a regular basis! If you’re visiting friends or vacationing in the West Maui area, we have a few suggestions as far as dining goes.

Of course, as with any locale you may visit, some restaurants are expensive, others moderately priced, and some inexpensive for those who don’t want to spend their entire vacation budget eating out. Here are a few of our favorites in every category:

Expensive, for those who want to enjoy dining in Maui – A few of the restaurants that come to mind include Merriman’s in Kapalua, Sea House in Napali, Frida’s Mexican in Lahaina, Roy’s Ka’anapali, Hula Grill, and Pulehu Italian Grill – all in Ka’anapali, where our Maui condo rentals are located.
