Pita Paradise is our favourite restaurant on Maui and we make it here each time we come. The food is always top notch and flavourful and the service is friendly and professional

The outdoor patio is very European courtyard!

We went at 5 pm which is their happy hour. They sat us outside which apparently is not part of their happy hour. The restaurant was empty but I guess they don't cater to clients.
Overall it was average quality food with high prices. They're in the same shopping center with MonkeyPod and charge similar prices, in fact our bill was more here, but the food quality is far less and not at all innovative.
I see no need to return.

Had a nice little double date with friends. All the food was good as usual. Especially the calamari, which I often tell people is the best calamari on the island! Watch out for those tiropitas though... they are tasty but they are small and you only get 2.

Service was pretty good. The food really isn’t good. Apparently the owner catches most of the fish, which is pretty cool.

My husband ordered the swordfish, two 2 oz thin medallions were served. The moussaka that I ordered wasn’t even edible. I’m at a loss to say what was on top of the eggplant, possibly mashed potatoes?

I wouldn’t eat there again or recommend it. Very poor food value.

We loved this restaurant! They have a lovely outdoor courtyard and everyone loved their food. Nice keiki portions and options too. We loved the lamb gnocchi, the mousakka and the baklavah ice cream cake. Great find.

Wonderful & attentive service. The Mediterranean dishes were all yummy, but the two “Italian”/ pasta dishes we had were bland.
The grilled pitas were also good.

I'm mad at myself for not eating here earlier! My wife and I have passed by a million times. For some reason, we never thought to eat here or look up the menu. I think I wrongly associated it with Pita Pit, a sandwich shop from my college years.

I'm so glad we came in. It's now our favorite meal in Maui since we moved here four years ago. The appetizers, entrees, desserts and even the iced tea was amazing. Perfectly cooked fresh kabobs (steak, Mahi, lamb) Wasn't in the mood for alcohol, but if the mixed drinks are half as good as the food, I'll be taking an Uber next time!

Best Greek food I've ever had, and our waitress (Brittany I think) was excellent! Service, timing, friendliness, basically everything was perfect!

I can't wait to come back. You guys are great! See ya soon.

Consistently excellent service and food. Baklava Ice Cream Pie is the reason for returning time and again. Kabobs are the best. Ziziki Sauce, they should sell pints to go home !

To enjoy the happy hour menu one may ONLY inside at the bar. This seems absurd in Covid time.

I have eaten here many times in the past.

COVID dining was 100% odd at this restaurant.

I have a list of allergies my waitress would not take the list so many anaphylactic allergies I was not 100% comfortable.

My dinner was served they had to take it back I told the person delivering the meal that delivered my I had to bring back my dinner and she took my list to the chef.

New meal was perfect.

My suggestion is if you are so afraid of taking an order along with my list of serious allergies you should not be a waitress working during Covid.

I did notice she also was extremely cautious with other tables and their dinners were also incorrect.

My meal finally came back 100% delicious.
