You’ll no doubt have worked up an appetite after you bike the volcano. As you end your Haleakalā downhill bike tour, we’ve thrown together our list of best restaurants in Paia in addition to the terrific shopping areas this charming town has to offer.
So, if you’re looking for a great place to have a relaxing dinner, check out some of these Paia restaurants (which are in no particular order) . . .
Paia Fish Market
For delicious fish burgers, fish tacos, and other large-portioned seafood plates, Paia Fish Market is a very popular restaurant on the corner of Baldwin Ave. and Hana Highway. While not the most romantic dinner for two location with its order-at-the-counter and bench seating style, this eatery is a great place to unwind and recap your Haleakalā biking adventures in a relaxed aloha atmosphere.
Mama’s Fish House
Mama’s Fish House on the other hand is a restaurant where you can make reservations weeks in advance. This lovely eatery has picturesque views of the ocean and a unique island ambiance that draws people in from across the world. The elegant seafood dishes are as delicious as the views. However, Mama’s Fish House is a bit on the expensive side, but does serve some excellent seafood dishes along with great service.
Milagros Food Co.
For some Tex-Mex while you’re on the island, stop in at Milagros Food Company. They have a wide selection of tequila to accompany their delicious Mexican and seafood dishes.
If you’re in the mood for some tasty pizza after your Haleakalā bike tour down the volcano, try the Flatbread Company. They have gourmet pizzas and flatbreads using local ingredients along with some great salads. You may want to make a reservation though for dinner because their lines can get pretty long.
