*how we rate restaurants
In a nutshell: A small fish market & cafe that serves delicious and inexpensive seafood in South Maui.
Minuses: No weekend hours.
Sound-bite: “Eskimo Candy has the absolute best poke I’ve found.”
Eskimo Candy doesn't try to pretend to be anything it isn't - located in a commercial district, this small market & cafe is attached to their fresh seafood distribution warehouse. Eskimo Candy's main focus is on being purveyors of the best quality seafood to restaurants and grocery stores - and that my friends, is precisely why they've got the choicest pick of seafood for their market & cafe customers.
Eskimo Candy got our #1 rating - because not only do they have among the best fresh fish for sale to the public, but they've also got a superb and surprisingly inexpensive cafe to eat-in or take-out. The prices are astoundingly inexpensive compared to the quality - I mean, as far as the prepared food goes, you could easily pay significantly more for this food sitting on a plate just a short drive down South Kihei Road.
They have a few indoor tables, and some outdoor picnic seating - but the real way to do Eskimo Candy is to get the food to take-out, then drive a few minutes down the road and enjoy a tasty picnic on the spectacular South Maui beach of your choice.
If you're staying in a condo with a kitchen and plan on cooking during your vacation, unprepared fish is also available at very reasonable prices.
- The poke and fish & chips are their specialties.
- Choose the ?fresh fish? option (instead of frozen) on the fish & chips.
