We met a couple of contractors that my husband knows through work on the mainland. We have driven by this locale several times on the way to Makena beach from S. Kihei. I love the esthetics, the menu and cocktails. They had a great beer selection too. The pasta and bread are baked fresh daily and the fish is locally... More

Waited 1hr for a table on a Tues night. Were told it would be 35 min. The food was okay- not spectacular. The bourgeois pizza was very good. Nothing I'd wait an hour for.

Great food and drinks at a great price during happy hour! Appetizers are half off and drinks are cheap too during HH.

Our server was amazing, wish I could remember her name. Located in a small plaza in Wailea a short drive from where we were staying in S Kihei. Best drink I had the whole time on the island and my husband enjoyed his too. One of our most expensive meals but I had the ahi tuna which was delish and... More

Nice,fun spot with oversized mixed drinks and good, casual food served by competent waiters. A delightful contrast to the colorless competitors in the neighborhood.

Went for Happy Hour and to try the infamous mai tai's with lilikoi foa $m. Regularly $14.50 each, at happy hours these are $9 - and worth every penny. Well crafted cocktails. Happy Hour menu gets you 1/2 off most appetizers and wood fired pizza is $9. Live music - good vibe. The food is also well prepared and delicious... More

A great view restaurant above Wailea. We walked from the Grand Wailea hotel up the hill to the place. It has a great buzz with a mix of tourists and locals. The menu was big with many selections. The staff was young and friendly. The person who was running the dinner plates to the tables was hurried and described the... More

We loved the food at this restaurant. It was definitely a mid-range meal - but good portion sizes made it a good value. We enjoyed the Fish & Chips, as well as the Cucumber Avocado Salad and the Macadamia Nut encrusted Mahi Mahi. Great flavors in each of the dishes - but the two items that took these meals over...

We have eaten here several times and it is always fantastic. Top notch wait staff who get everything right, give great advice and are willing to customize food to your preference/needs. Their food is very farm to table and is always delicious and perfectly prepared.

We went specifically for the late afternoon happy hour -- much cheaper than the normal prices. Great deals on cocktails, craft beers, appetizers and pizzas. The four of us were quite happy with the garlic fries, two orders of shrimp potstickers, a mushroom pizza and a proletariat pizza, all enabled by mai tais,, maui bikini blondes, an anchor steam, and...
