This is Central Maui's hidden jewel for reasonably priced, local-style lunches that are good for you. The menu is not only diabetic-friendly, it's also high in fiber; low in salt, sugar, and fat; and seasoned with fresh herbs under the expert guidance of chef Joe Wilkinson. Besides veggie options, local favorites include ground turkey chow fun, hot-and-sour soup, and baked fish with ginger lime sauce. All entrées come with sweet potatoes, brown rice, taro, and salad or any combination of the above. Simply Healthy can be hard to find; ask for the Cameron Center building between Maui Memorial Hospital and the main Wailuku police station. www.hnkop.org. No credit cards. No dinner. Closed weekends and holidays.
Built in the 1960s at the Napili Kai Beach Resort before there were laws forbidding construction so close to the beach, this restaurant is, literally, just footsteps away from gorgeous Napili Bay. Wear your beach wrap to breakfast and enjoy the signature oven-baked pancakes or Molokai sweet potato egg frittata. For dinner, start with the award-winning poke (raw fish) nachos and move on to the taro-crusted sea bass. Several entrées are offered in both "lite" and regular-size portions. Folks who are gluten-free will find excellent choices here. www.seahousemaui.com.com. Credit cards accepted.
A good choice for a seafood lunch, the Maui Ocean Center's signature restaurant (aquarium admission is not required to dine here) offers harbor views from its open-air perch. The restaurant promotes heart-healthy cuisine, using sustainable seafood and trans-fat-free items. Lunch-size salads, sandwiches, burgers, fish tacos, teriyaki tofu, fish-and-chips, chicken, ribs, and a full kids' menu are on offer. There's something for everyone here, and the view isn't bad either. www.mauioceancenter.com. Credit cards accepted. No dinner.
This upscale Italian restaurant's setting right on spectacular Keawakapu Beach, with views of Molokini and Kahoolawe, is irresistible. After years of serving dinner only, it now offers breakfast service so diners can enjoy the extraordinary view in the morning, too. The breakfast menu offers all the regular fare; dinner has a decidedly Italian bent, with dishes like linguine with clams, penne Bolgnese, and portobello napoleon with local eggplant, mozzarella, tomatoes, and arugula pesto. The food is very good, if a bit old-fashioned, and the portions may be too big for some. www.sarentosonthebeach.com. Credit cards accepted. No lunch.
Every island has its noodle shrine, and this is Maui's. Dry mein, saimin, chow fun—they all come in different-size portions and with add-ins to satisfy every noodle craving. While you wait for your bowl, be sure to try a teriyaki beef stick or two. Save room for the popular turnovers—pineapple, coconut, apple, or peach—and traditional Japanese manju filled with either lima or azuki beans. At busy times, which is almost always, you will likely have to wait for a table or a stool at the counter. Be sure to write your name on the little yellow pad at the takeout window. No credit cards. No dinner. Closed Sun.
