Eskimo Candy has been one of Maui's best fresh fish purveyors for many years. Their casual little restaurant/takeout place/fish market allows visitors and residents to enjoy the same fresh fish cooked in many of Maui's best restaurants. Everthing on the menu is delicious. Signatures include Davey Jones' fish-n-chips, the big kahuna fish platter, and Captain Charlie Butterfly's famous fish burger. They make several varieties of poke (Hawaiian ceviche) fresh daily. If you're staying somewhere with kitchen/grilling facilities, get your fresh fish here. Be sure to look at their fabulous T-shirt designs and cool packaging. www.eskimocandy.com. Closed weekends.
The spot's the thing—the view is amazing—at this casual eatery just steps from the beach on the grounds of the Honua Kai Resort & Spa. The food is reliable, the decor all surfer-dudes and little grass shacks, and the signature cocktails big and umbrella-garnished. The fresh fish is a good bet, and you'll know from the aroma when you enter that there are burgers on the grill. Kimo's original hula pie is reason enough to come. You can buy the cool retro plate on which it's served for 20 bucks. www.dukesmaui.com.
Golf is golf, and Hawaii is part of the United States, but Island golf nevertheless has its own quirks. Here are a few tips to make your golf experience in the Islands more pleasant.
If you are a fish or shellfish lover, then this is the place for you. One of the most wildly popular restaurants in Hawaii with locations on three islands, Sansei takes sushi, sashimi, and contemporary Japanese food to a new level. Favorite dishes include the mango-and-crab-salad handroll, panko-crusted-ahi sashimi roll, Asian shrimp cake, Japanese calamari salad, and Dungeness crab ramen with Asian-truffle broth. There are great deals on sushi and small plates for early birds and night owls. This busy restaurant has several separate dining areas, a sushi bar, and a bar area, but the focus is squarely on excellent food and not the ambience. www.sanseihawaii.com. Credit cards accepted. No lunch.
The flavors of Old Mexico are given new life here, where a dozen chilies are used to create the salsas. The owner, a former high-end food and beverage pro, spent three years visiting authentic eateries in 40 Mexican cities before opening this place. Tucked into an older and unfancy mall, this restaurant requires you to order at the counter and fill your own disposable beverage cup at the soda fountain. But as soon as you bite into a chipotle-citrus rotisserie chicken plate or, really, anything on the menu, you'll forget all about the plastic cutlery and lack of a view. The brilliantly colored, clever decor—a collection of worn-from-duty tortilla presses, now hand-painted—coupled with consistently excellent food at affordable prices more than makes up for the lack of fine dining amenities. www.cilantrogrill.com.
