A fun atmosphere. Wait staff very friendly and helpful. Open kitchen. Fairly large room. Had live music early evening. Good food too.
Overall nice dining experience. – Stella's was close to the place we were staying in Maui, so we ended up eating here twice. The first time we visited it was with a group of 6 adults and 2 infants. Quite the group to serve, but the staff here handled us very well. I was pleased with how accommodating they were to our needs.
We started off with some drinks and appetizers. I ordered the Lava Flow Pina Colada. It was good, though I would've preferred it have a BIT more flavor to it - just a little bland. We ordered several apps, but the only one I can remember is the Thai lettuce wraps. I love the Thai chile sauce and they did the other fixings very well. It's a tasty, light appetizer that we really enjoyed. The fact that I can't remember what else we got probably says a lot - it was probably ok but not memorable.
For dinner my wife ordered the jambalaya "oh mya" (cute) which was very good - though I'm not a connoisseur of jambalaya. It was VERY spicy - which I know she enjoyed. I had the fresh fish special of the evening. It was also good, but not fantastic. Ahi (I think) surrounded by some vegetables and a green aioli sauce with mashed potatoes. Not bad, just not great. However, the Mega Mai Tai I ordered with dinner WAS great. Also, VERY strong (I did giggle all the way home).
The 3 men in our group came back for lunch after a golf outing. It was the kind of experience I would expect from a local pub where we live. Burger was good, service was also fine. I will say that the Bloody Mary I had was GREAT. And I've been around some very good and very bad Bloodies in my time. This was one of the better ones. Normally I need to really coach the staff through how to make it so that I find it tasty - but they almost nailed it (I asked for a bit of Worcestershire sauce) the first time. Overall, a fine meal - though I'm sure there are other places you could go on Maui that may be more memorable. From what I could tell the prices here aren't as bad as others on the island.
Nice place in Kihei – We've gone there 3-4 times while on Maui. You can sit outside if you wish, the food is good, and the staff was reasonbly attentive.
Good value overall
