Suggestions.

  • Call for reservations. In high-season (Jan. - April) it might be difficult to get into Kimo's without a reservation.
  • Kimo's has one of the best ocean and sunset views for a restaurant on Front Street. Ask for a table as close to the water as possible.
  • Parking is more abundant on Lahainaluna Road off Hwy. 30. There's paid parking on your right as you approach Front Street.
  • Enjoy Lahaina's art galleries, souvenir shops, and jewelry stores before or after your meal at Kimo's.
  • Lahaina has several museums and the famous Banyan Tree several blocks from Kimo's. Plan to spend some time exploring the old whaling town of Lahaina during your stay on Maui.
  • Kimo's is famous for their Hula Pie dessert. Yes, as you may have heard, it's easily enough for 2-4 people and is worth the price and experience. Make sure you have your camera with you, too!
  • Nearby is Hawaii Fudge Company with outstanding fudge and the island's best salt water taffy with all the Hawaii Flavors.

Directions.

Kimo's Restaurant is located on the west side of Maui. Take Hwy. 30 to the historic town of Lahaina. At the intersection of Hyw. 30 and Lahainaluna Road, turn toward the ocean and Front Street. There is plenty of hourly parking lots after you go through a stop sign at Waine'e Street. Kimo's Restaurant is ocean-side to your right on Front Street, just down from Cheeseburger in Paradise.

Parking.

There is free parallel parking along Front Street, but it's difficult to find an open spot. Try paid parking lots on both Lahainaluna Street and Papalaua Street. There's a large parking lot at the Outlets of Maui shopping complex off Papalaua just across from the McDonald's location.
