From the Back Cover
If you're planning your trip to Maui, you need this guide.
This lovingly researched, frank and honest handbook is indispensable for people who love to eat, and prefer not to waste good money on bad food.
Disappointing meals (and there are a lot of them on Maui) can totally ruin a dream vacation. Don't leave your planning to chance or rely on slick advertising-driven guides. Other tourist books with their capsule "reviews" don't come close to the insight you'll get from opinionated, knowledgeable restaurant critics who live on Maui. Thousands of elated and relieved visitors have trusted the online version of Top Maui Restaurants to guide them to the best eats on Maui.
In this book you'll find:
* The top romantic restaurants worth the splurge.
* The best inexpensive but tasty places.
* Hidden gems you wouldn't find unless a local revealed the secret.
* A convenient 100-point rating scale that accurately compares one establishment to another.
* A user-friendly reference to help you fulfill any food craving.
Dining out on Maui is more expensive than any place else in America. For less than the price of a bad breakfast, this handbook could save your vacation. Free trial Membership to TopMauiTips.com included.--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I like to be organized and plan numerous aspects of vacations before leaving the home, and this book seemed like it was written just for me! The authors explained many tricks to save money (e.g. when you arrive at Maui, shop at Costco, which is conveniently located near the airport) as well as written reviews of many restaurants.
Thanks to this book, we did not have one bad meal experience. My favorite restaurant, Haliimaile General Store, was our first dinner after we completed the Road to Hanna. My daughter still talks about the restaurant because they served plastic monkeys and folding umbrella in the drinks.
We only ate at restaurants recommended by the authors of this book, such as the Kihei Caffe for breakfast (chocolate chip teddy bear pancake!), early dinner at the Cafe O'Lei (oh. my. goodness.) and we splurged for our final dinner at Mama's Fish House.
The book is organized well and offers recommendations beyond restaurants. The authors detail many different Maui luaus, entertainment venues and family activities. This book is a must have if you are planning a vacation to Maui.
We tried every level of food - from cheap eats like Guri Guri and Cafe au lait, to expensive and top-notch at Capische! and Spago. We only wish we had more time to try more places. Some places we never would have even known about with the best burgers and views and popular places where we may have gone already but wouldn't have ordered what we did without James & Molly's recommendations.
All in all, phenomenal book with great picks and truly a must have for first-time Maui travelers. We'll be using it on trip #2 and if anyone we know goes this books is top on our list to let them borrow.
Enjoy! Thank you James & Molly!
You'll spend lots of money when you go to Maui, so spend it wisely. Want a terrific dinner for two for under $40? Or are you looking to go all out and spend $250? Either way, this book will serve you well.
One last thing: We've not dined at any of the restuarants for which the authors have given less-than-glowing reviews, but those negative reports are entertaining reading.
My only reason for giving it four stars is it's not easy to tell where on the island the restaurants are located - I would have liked more geographical info so I didn't get excited about a review only to figure out it's over two hours away from our hotel.
