We were served dinner here as apart of our sunset tour and holy cow it was awesome! We had the macadamia nut crusted chicken and it is one of the tastiest dishes we have had on this island! The sauce on the chicken was amazing!

Excellent food served in a warm and friendly setting. Our waiter/bar tender, Justin, was helpful and friendly. The French Onion Soup appetizer was delicious. The ahi tuna was seared perfectly and the Cajun Prawn Fettuccini was delicious. Portions were generous but not overwhelming.

Love the location and feel of the place. Right off the beach. Great food and happy hour pricing. Regular pricing very reasonable for Kihei, some of the best we found. Ate lunch and dinner there. Good sushi!

First day in Maui, still on mainland time, and wanted some poke and fish. Got a local rec on this spot. Got there early and had seared ahi, onion soup and some poke. I’d recommend. Not beautiful but good food at reasonable (for HI) prices

If you are looking for an ocean view restaurant, this isn't it. Try Five Palms. Excellent ocean view restaurant.
