    AMAZING food! I am gluten intolerant, bordering on celiac as well as no dairy, and these guys really take care of you and GET IT. They knew which meals were not friendly for me, and if they weren't sure, they went and found out - even checking the ingredients listings. Don't miss this place!

    Very limited options for lunch for GF. Staff was helpful and the pricing was good, though.

    The lunchtime menu is incredibly reasonable in price, and their wait staff is very helpful when you ask about which menu items are GF. I ordered the blackened Mahi Mahi and it was SO good! Definitely make time to stop here when visiting Maui!

    We went to Cafe O'Lei for a dinner and a lunch on our recent trip to Maui. We'd been there 3 years ago, and remembered the lunch being really good and less expensive than other places. For dinner, I asked a bunch of questions, and our server was very knowledgeable and kind about all my questions. I ordered a glass of red wine, and the "Blackened Mahi-mahi (dorado) for $22.95 - "big island papaya salsa, chinese parsley, light ginger butter sauce, steamed rice." I actually got 2 filets of fish with mine, and I left most of the rice because I got so full with the salad and fish - a good, hearty portion. For lunch a few days later, our server didn't have the answers to many of the questions. I felt a bit more uneasy, and ordered the same thing - the Blackened Mahi-Mahi with a salad and rice. This time, I got the dressing on the side, and I am so glad I did, because it wasn't the same dressing as I'd had for dinner. She said it was GF, but I didn't trust her, so I just ate the salad with my own Bragg's Liquid Aminos that I always travel with, and all was good. The lunch was still really yummy, but I didn't get that nice feeling this time. I think it was just a matter of training and knowledge. The dinner server knew what he was talking about, and you could tell. The lunch server didn't.

    Very affordable - tons of food. Split a lunch plate. Very accommodating about allergies. Not a whole lot of options - but why eat anything but fish when on the islands anyway?

    Server was very knowledgeable and knew how to alter the dishes to make them gf. The restaurant has great seafood options and sorbet for dessert.
