Really busy but friendly service. Funky colours and outlook to the ocean. Food above average and reasonable pricing. Loved the sunset view while we were there.

Cilantro Mexican Grill is a super casual, order-at-the-counter eatery just off Front Street in Lahaina, Maui, that takes its Mexican food seriously. Named "Best Mexican Cuisine 2011" by The Maui News and recipient of a bunch of awards, including three Taste of Lahaina wins, Cilantro is known for healthy food packed with flavor at a great value. Stand out items include our Mother Clucker Flautas and Chipotle Citrus Rotisserie Chicken. Come see us and say, "Alohahola!"
