Let me think about this... Good service, reasonable prices, tasty food and a view. We were in the more casual downstairs area, and as usual, were not disappointed. We didn't even have to wait more than 5 minutes to be seated. I have been here many times, and will be back next time I'm in Ka'anapali

Den & I ate here our second evening in Maui and it was perfect. Beautiful sunset view, very attentive wait staff, delicious food & great drinks. Very convenient, walking distance in Whalers Village from the Marriott Maui Ocean Club, best of all for us still weary travelers.

We were stuck waiting for a tour and stopped in to have drinks. The prices were great! They had a wide selection of local draught beers and service was friendly and great.. The menu was from local plate style to hamburgers and some Asian fusion style foods. We killed an hour sitting in the restaurant watching tourists and the beach!

Leilani' has a sea view and is always busy at night. If you don't book, you have to wait up to an hour, so we booked. We loved the fish with Parmesan crust. So we booked again. This time we opted for filet mignon and ribeye steak. It was delicious! We booked again for our last night and I had... More

Leilani's is on the beach near our rented condo at the Whaler. We tried both the excellent upstairs dining room for dinner one night and the ocean level Beachside Grill another. Only upstairs takes reservations so we got them for 7 pm the day before, luckily. People walking in had about a 45 minute wait, although being by the ocean... More

Great location, beautiful view and fun, live music during happy hour. Service is always great. We only went for drinks/happy hour and for the guitar players, which was a lot of fun.

My wife and I came here twice during our honeymoon, as we were staying at the Westin Maui a short walk away. When we walked by, we fell for the view, and the menu had lots of options. Both times, I ordered a swordfish special. Both times, it blew me away. Hawaiian seafood is easily the best I've ever had.... More

Maybe they were having an off night, but our food was just OK for the high price point. Our waitress was not great. We would probably not return with other good options nearby.

Leilani’s on the Beach is located on the northwest coast of Maui on Kaanapali Beach in Whalers Village. It is also located just south of Black Rock Beach and about 4 miles directly north of the old whaling town of Lahaina. And most importantly, it was only about ½ a block from my ground floor hotel room. I dined here... More
