Was not expecting to eat Italian while in Maui but this restaurant was recommended to us so we tried it. The food was excellent! The osso buco with the creamy polenta was delicious. Kind of a hidden gem; it seems like not many have heard of this place. There is a large window into the kitchen so if you like... More

We all know about speed dating - what about speed dining? Just spent a quick 60 minutes having drinks, dinner and dessert for a $100 meal that was supposed to be an anniversary celebration. The meal had highs and lows. The risotto encrusted fish (monchong) was delicious and well worth the price. Specialty alcoholic drinks were also quite nice. So... More

Had our son's rehearsal dinner here with 15 of his closest family and friends. The atmosphere is lovely, set next to a large fish pond with large colorful koi and blossoming lily pods of pink and violet. We were seated in a separate room off the main dining room so that we could be by ourselves and served only by... More

Given a resort credit, we decided to try Pulehu (it's sorta Italian). Phone reservation and reservations most times of the year on Maui are a good idea. The restaurant is located on the ground floor in the main building and opens to the large koi pond and view of the garden courtyard. The view and setting appear to have been... More

My wife and I had dinner at Pulehu Italian Grill at the Westin Kaanapali Ocean Resort Villas. The food and service were very good...fine dining in a casual atmosphere with a beautiful Hawaiian sunset in the background. Couldn't ask for more.

Had the most amazing dinner here , in Maui, chef Jesse Pita, cooked panzzarotti for us as per request but not on the menu, he did an amazing job with all the flavours , the gnocchi was awesome, the scallops were great, the chocolate cake with cherry ice cream was to die for, just gave to try it

The concierge got us a table overlooking the Poi pond for dinner. The setting, food, and service were all first rate. The pasta is home made and quite good. A little pricey but worth it. A great place to go for a quiet, relaxing fine meal.
