We love this place! We stop by about every time we’re on island. The fresh catch salad is a can’t miss. I had the ono dinner, and that was great, too.

Of course, the pita is wonderful!

Nice enough place, food decent quality but poor value.
Dinner was served within 6 -8 minutes of ordering, because all they did was slap a piece of pita bread down, put a couple tablespoons of Gyro meat down with some veggies and a small wedge of cheese for $26.
Basically, we paid $60+ tax & tip for two Greek tacos and 2 soft drinks.
We had to grab something else somewhere else as we were still hungry and we are not massive eaters.
Weren't there long! Wasn't good value, wouldn't return or recommend.

Our food was amazing, super fresh and flavorful. We had the Mini Greek Burger, the Ahi Tartar N’Pita Chips, the Chicken Pesto Pita Pitza, and the Bolognese Pasta dinner; every dish was better that the last. Just when I thought it couldn’t get better we finished with the Baklava Ice Cream Cake, the perfect finish to our meal.

Finally I have to mention our server, Karen. She was warm and welcoming while being professional; Karen was friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the menu. I will definitely recommend Pita Paradise to everyone!

The food was ok but the service was horrible. I don’t think I’ve ever been treated so poorly in a restaurant. We were seated outside during happy hour (we didn’t choose where to sit, they did). They refused to serve us from the happy hour menu because “happy hour is only inside”. The waitress was extremely rude and raised her voice when we politely asked to be moved inside. She then proceeded to say that because of covid the indoor capacity was reached. We totally understood that and asked to wait. She then proceeded to allow 10-12 more people inside within minutes. We watched her talk about us to the other waitress and then scoffed and agreed to move us inside. Overall, horrible experience. Clearly taking advantage of tourists, we will not be back.

We ate here 5 years ago and were excited to try it again. However, not the same as we expected. Menu was limited and not as Mediterranean as we remembered, more Italian. Made reservations for 2 different nights and cancelled the 2nd night.

The steak kabobs tasted very bland, as though they did not have seasoning or salt. I asked the waiter for some seasoning and they brought out another kabob, but it was no better. Otherwise the moussaka greek lasagna was superb.

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.

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.
