We have been to this restaurant on several occasions and always enjoyed ourselves especially if we go on a Monday and have the added bonus of the Hula Honeys entertaining us. We had not been in a while so decided to head on up the hill. Definitely something has changed in the kitchen and not for the good. Fish and... More

This cafe has lots of seating and a varied menu. A good influence of French food & wine. We enjoyed the house-made tomato soup and the Haiku salad. Burger was great. We had not eaten here on a previous visit to the area - our loss. Service was classy.

Friends had recommended this quaint, casual cafe as a "local" hang out with great music, good food and fair value. While the music was good, and the food well-prepared, though over-priced, the service was horrendous. We had a reservation for a party of 12, which was separated into two tables. The waiter, Guido, didn't take our order for a half... More

I would have liked to enjoy a full meal at Hana Hou, but we stopped in for an afternoon dessert. I had the Crème Brûlée and my dad tried the Lilikoi Cheese Cake along with a large French Press Coffee. It was very good, and the owner stayed and chatted with us about his Maui experience at length. I plan... More

What a great surprise. Stopped over for lunch on our way to twin falls. Cafe doesn't look like much from the front...just a simple facade of a simple building by a car park... but step to the side and you enter a little court yard under cover, and the inside is cute as well. If you are lucky you will... More

This was a fun little gem in Haiku. We stopped for dinner on our first night in Maui. The food was great and an eclectic mix of French, American, and local cuisine. Super yummy!

This charming establishment in 'upcountry' in the little town of Haiku. I would choose Hana Hou over Mama's Fish House any time. It's ambience is incredibly romantic and Aloha, without that cheesy, tacky vibe that so many establishments have on the well beaten path of many restaurants in Maui. The service was impeccable. Every one was genuinely kind and warm.... More

We went to Hana Hou Cafe to celebrate part 2 of our anniversary. It was late but the enertainment was still going. They had a very talented young lady playing her guitar. Food was delicious and the drinks were too. This is a very small yet cozy cafe with so much heart Thanks for an unforgettable night <3

Stopped in for breakfast on our way to Volcano park, from Kona. We both had a great meal. I had my favourite - 1egg, bacon and a pancake. Pancake was a treat with coconut syrup! My sister had "the breakfast special"- eggs, smoked pork and rice (tho they ran out of rice so asked if they could substitute toast). Everything... More

Just returned from a trip to lovely Maui. We had the pleasure to eat dinner at this out of the way restaurant in Haiku. The restaurant in set in a tiny "strip mall" but don't be discouraged. Inside, the setting is perfect, there are gardens visible from all windows, and an partially outdoor eating area where live music was playing... More
