Kula Bistro

When “Upcountry” Maui, Jim and I really enjoy Kula Bistro.  Kula Bistro front door

We usually tell guest of our Maui bed and breakfast of this great stop when coming down from Haleakala Crater for lunch or a dinner stop when coming around the back side of Hana. They close at 8pm so if your are coming from the backside of Hana, remember to watch your time.

As most locations in Maui, Kula Bistro is easiest found if you use your GPS or maps app on your smart phone. It is a little out of the way, but worth the extra effort to find it.

We have never been disappointed while dining here. The salads are a must and so big they must be shared. We usually start with the Ceasar Salad and then move on from there.

We have had the pasta dishes which again we shared. The fist time we went there we each order our own meal. Knowing that we can both eat a lot in one sitting we didn’t ever consider sharing. When the meals came, we looked at each other and knew we would be taking one home.

The sandwiches are again big enough to share being stuffed with all the fresh options they have.

During our most recent visit, my Mother, sister, and I decided to share the fish special. We figured with three of us sharing one dish we would have plenty of room for their delicious desserts. (there are too many to choose from so we decided we could order three desserts to share). Once we finished our meal we shared one dessert and took two to go. Just couldn’t fit another bite in.

The upcountry views are always beautiful. Although Kula Bistro does not have views from inside the restaurant itself, This picture was taken from the parking area. Looking at the West Maui Mountains.

All of the desserts on made on property and you just never know what deliciousness will be available in the dessert case. It is truly worth a look and sample.

I usually like to stick to what I know when ordering out but we have tried the specials many times and never have we been disappointed.
