We love this little place! Outside area is great and the staff is friendly and efficient! The food is always consistent and the fish is fresh everyday!

My kids love gyros and pita and hummus, so we tried out Pita Paradise. The staff was very nice and COVID-careful and the space was set up well for social distancing. We ordered the pita and hummus appetizer, which was good, but light on the pita and a bit expensive for the portion. My husband ordered the Bolognese pasta and he enjoyed it, though it was quite heavy. My daughter had a gnocchi dish, in which the dumplings were relatively light, but the chunkiness of the sauce wasn't well suited for them. One of the beef kabobs, which I ordered medium rare, came raw inside and the one which was cooked as ordered was very chewy. The side of rice tasted like a boxed mix. The kids' Caeser salad which my son ordered was overdressed and therefore limp.

Overall, we found the food to be mediocre and would not venture back if hoping for good Mediterranean or Italian food. And, as many restaurants in Wailea, it is quite pricey for the quality.

Waited a while to get our food. On top of that our order was wrong so we had to wait even longer.

Always great across the board. We always start with the sampler platter. Not because we need it but because everything on it is so delicious. As for mains, I’ve tried everything on the menu but just can’t help but order the teriyaki chicken pita 9x out of 10. Never disappointed when we visit.

The food is excellent here with vibrant flavors. I ordered their spicy falafel and it paired well with the tzatziki sauce. Whether you order take out or dine in, I highly recommend.

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.

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.
