restaurant is open for lunch and dinner and is always busy.
To avoid a wait make reservations for dinner in advance
especially during peak season.
to say that the best part of this restaurant is that it has a
beautiful waterfront setting. We were there for sunset and
the view was awesome. The food and service are very
good. The menu includes a variety of fish with your choice
of several different preparations. They also have chicken,
pork and steaks. Most of my group went with fish and they
seemed very pleased with it. I chose the Kushiyaki which
is a grilled
brochette of teriyaki chicken breast and sirloin steak with
peppers onions and t I
thought was good. The kids had the
famous "Original Hula Pie" for dessert and the loved it.
Note that we did receive a coupon from our hotel for a free
dessert so be sure to be on the look out. Prices range from $18
- $35 for entrees.

This restaurant is about an hour drive from Kaanapali Beach, and
minutes from Wailea, but it is worth the drive. It is open
for lunch and dinner.
It has a great setting on the
beach with incredible ocean views. The Mama's experience
begins outdoors on the path leading up to the restaurant with
its beautiful palm trees and lit torches. Once inside the decor
is wonderful with bamboo, tropical arrangements, candle light
and servers dressed in Polynesian prints. Most tables have a
view so try and go before sunset to see the view of the
fish arrives several times a day from local fisherman. Each dish
has a unique distinct, island flavor. The service is warm
and friendly. Desserts are superb. Drinks are very
good but very pricey. Most of the entrees are in the
$30-$50 range with $16 - $22 for an appetizer, $15 per drink and
desserts around $12.
Everything we had was
excellent, fresh, and prepared perfectly. It is however very
expensive so be prepared!

Maalaea Waterfront Restaurant
50 Hauoli St
Wailuku, HI 96793-9510
It was decorated more like something you would see in
Philadelphia rather than in Maui. It had a cozy, private golf
club feeling but could use some updating. There was inside and
outside seating and the view was spectacular. We arrived
there a little early and went out back and found it a great
location to take some family photos with a terrific background.
The restaurant is actually located in the bottom of a
We had a large group and the
service was excellent. Our waiter, Andrew, knew the menu
very well and his suggestions were terrific. They offer veal,
lamb, chicken, beef, pork and of course fresh fish that is
prepared to your liking. They have a variety of nine
different ways to prepare the fish.
enjoy Caesar salad you will love the one offered at this
restaurant. They prepare it tableside,
which is a great experience in itself to watch the server mix
the ingredients and toss the salad. Everyone who had it at
our table loved it. The salad made was huge and it fed the
two people who ordered it as well as several others at the
I had the
Maui waterfront salad with the Maui onion dressing, which our
waiter suggested, and I thought that it was terrific. For
my entree I had the Veal Scaloppine A La Piccata and I totally
enjoyed it. Everyone enjoyed the fish selections as well.
The desserts, which were huge, looked fantastic but I was much
too full to have any. Entrees range from approximately $23
- $38. When you add a appetizer, dessert and drinks it
gets very expensive.
our experience I would recommend this restaurant if you are
looking to have a nice, elegant meal. I would not
recommend it for small children.
