It was totally unexpected - especially for a restaurant with a Hawaiian name. All of the dishes that I have sampled have been... read more

The name Mahalo means good luck and peace in Hawaii. This explains that the creative cusine is not always luky and that you are better served during lunch when they don't take big risks in inventing new dishes. We always had exellent lunch formula menus for lunch, but some desapointing to creative dishes for dinner. The buffet for Saturday's formula... More

You are greeted by Marcelo who is a lovely guy, very welcoming and helpful when choosing your meal from the menu. The food is to die for, my girlfriend and I had 3 courses... More

My husband called and this lovely woman said to come anyway even though they were booked. She said Marcelo would take care of us. My husbands luggage was... More
