Great value for Maui. The only reason I did not rate the food as a 5 star was because the penne pasta was over cooked and not al dente.

Was surprised that a classy restaurant called “Pita Paradise” charged $5 to get a few pieces of pita bread to sop up yummy sauce. And was charged $10 for a tiny piece of fish to go on my salad. Felt nickel and dimed, which ruined the experience.
Good food though. Too bad they’re greedy. We won’t be back.

The place has changed and not for the better over the last few years.
The Ahi appetizer was hard to find Ahi.
Fish,supposetley caught by the owner was nothing special.

Pita Paradise keeps on coming with really good food, good service and about the only jazz left on Maui on a Sunday night. A joyous occasion hearing Phil Benoit and daughter Kendall (subbing for his wife Angela) while munching on my favorite fish, monchong, so tastefully prepared. And save room for a large helping of baklava. You won't regret it.

We have eaten here before and enjoy the dining on the patio. The service is great and the food is great blend of Mediterranean styles. The calamari and capers appetizer is a fav!! My veggie entre is very tasty. Minor complaint is one pita is 3 dollars which seems over priced considering how much pita is a staple of mediterrean food for hummus, tzatziki, etc.

We have always enjoyed Pita Paradise. The food is always good, the service was very good but the noise level is irritating. I realize the restaurant can not control the noise that small children make but when you pay Maui prices for dinner, you do not want children screaming. But we like the food well enough that we will be back.

We tried PP for the first time although we passed it in years past. Hubby expects fresh fish when in Maui. He was not disappointed and more than pleased. He had a local swordfish dish - great portion, wonderful flavors and served hot like he likes it. Salads are a good value too. We will return next yr.

I always go to pita paradise and receive great service and food. I was very underwhelmed this time around with Stephanie as the server. We heard all other tables around us receiving the specials of the day and my table got nothing of that nature. Also took 15 minutes to be greeted. I will return but request not in her section
