For some reason this place doesn't get as much traction as it deserves. A must on any visit for both lunch and dinner. Service is amazing and the sunset views are top 5 for dinner. Not as expensive as others on front st and food...More

Excellent tacos and yellowfin sandwich. Maui onion rings are to die for. Waiter was fun and the location was perfect.

Of course it is in a "small mall" but the interior courtyard is a nice place to sit! The breakfast menu is traditional (pancakes, bacon, eggs, etc) and the food is prepped in a reasonably quick manner, considering one is on Island Time ! !...More

We stopped here on Friday night after striking out at three other more popular establishments. We should have chosen this place first. Wonderful open air seating overlooking Lahaina Harbor was available and added to a very pleasant evening and a great dining experience. Skillfully crafted...More

If you love The Gazebo for breakfast this place is its twin sister. Same menu without the 30-45 minute wait. Koa is right on the water and the perfect spot for breakfast. The fried rice is amazing and the pancakes are the best. Our waiter,...More

We came here when the two other places we tried to get into didn't work out. We were all so pleased with the breakfast. Both my husband and daughter had the banana cream French toast-- homemade bread and homemade cream--stuffed with a whole banana. Yummy!...More

Pushed by other reviews we went here. Unfortunately we had a very bad experience: lack of welcoming personnel, lack of tasty plates, lack of choices, lack of good service and attention. This place is the first in Lahaina: highest prices!!! Dinner for two is at...More

While not necessary, it is always a good idea to make reservations. Seating on the deck over looking the water is very popular and may be requested when making your reservation. I recommend making a reservation to ensure the... More

I actually like the beaches in Kaanapali. I think they are very flat, a lot more action than in Kihei and my personal opinion is that I just like them more. Not that Kihei beaches are bad , they are not. You really can't go... More
