Honestly, this place doesn't look like much from the outside, but in this case, it is best not to judge a book by it's cover.

The prices were affordable (which on Maui is rare), and the food was first rate. The staff was friendly and helpful and were willing to go way out of their way to accommodate my food allergies; they were even willing to cook gluten free pasta that I brought in from the outside.

One thing that I really enjoyed about Big Wave was that it is located in a less busy area of Kihei, and so it is not as overcrowded and noisy as other, more expensive restaurants on the island. The relaxing atmosphere, reasonable prices and good service were a welcome change.

The Big Wave Cafe is located in one of the numerous strip malls along South Kihei Road. We had a late lunch here and were almost the only customers there. The food was good - burgers, sandwiches and salads - and affordable. The menu had a lot of variety to offer. The service was friendly but the atmosphere was just mediocre - indoor seating is in a somewhat stuffy plain room and outdoor seating is small area bordered by the parking lot and main road.

We had an affordable family dinner here during our vacation. The food and service was great. The atmosphere and people were friendly. We loved this place, what's not to love in paradise?

I was in Maui for my honeymoon 8/29/06 and this place was recommended by our hotel. My husband and I went there for breakfast and we sat outside. Our waitress was very friendly and quick to greet us. I ordered half a papaya, The Big Stack (2 macadamia nut pancakes) with coconut syrup and a mimosa. The don't call it the Big Stack for nothin'! It was so delicious!

My husband got a mango smoothie and the biscuits and gravy. Both our meals were excellent and his biscuits and gravy were actually the best I've tasted so far. Portions were big and neither of us could finish our meals. So stuffed!

We were so pleased with our meals that we came back the next day for breakfast. I ordered the biscuits and gravy this time and one of those smoothies. This was a great casual dining experience and it's too bad I can't find a place like this back home. Two thumbs up!

Pros: Food, service, atmosphere

Cons: No view. Just of the parking lot and South Kihei Road.
