Had a dinner on my birthday. From the appetizer, entree, to dessert, food was amazing. It was a bit noisy with all the golfers enjoying the 19th hole, but they were all gone by the time we were enjoying the sunset. Great view of ocean and golf course. Service was flawless. Highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion.

My husband and I just enjoyed a wonderful meal @Kono's on the Green in Kihei. We started our dinner with tropical drinks that were perfect, followed by Furikake Calamari with teriyaki wasabi glaze as an appetizer. - Wonderful! My husband had a herb crusted Rack of Lamb ( a huge serving! I couldn't believe the portion size, but my husband... More

Average is NOT a good word in Maui. You aren't going to make it with poor service and average food. We went to happy hour and it was very disappointing. They had a crowd on a Friday night but not so many that the service should be so bad. The drinks were weak and the food was "average". The sweet... More

We have been going to Kono's since it first opened and have always liked it. However the service has gotten so bad that we sat in the bar area for 5 minutes and no one even acknowledged us. We just wanted a few cocktails and pupus and decided to go somewhere else. We really enjoyed our drinks and dinner at... More

They offer an "All you can eat" breakfast buffet for $10.00. Thought I would give it a try. Very disappointed. The selection included scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, two styles of rice, corn beef hash and some sauces. All of the food tasted very bland. They were all barely warm and dry. Definitely not worth the $10.00. It does not include... More

This restaurant is a hidden treasure. At the Elleair Golf Course in Kihei, the outdoor lanai is comfortable with a beautiful sunset view. Caterpillar sushi unbelievably good. We also had the roasted beet salad with feta cheese and appetizers of lamb pops and furikake calamari. Reasonably priced and live music on weekends plus half price pupus at happy hour. Our... More

Good food and service right at the golf course. We enjoyed pulled pork torta and ham & turkey torta right at the golf course then played a fabulous game. The restaurant looks out over the valley and course and is a pleasant design. We highly recommend Kono's.

My wife and I were looking for a great restaurant and Kono's did not disappoint. The restaurant is located on a golf course and is elegant yet relaxed with great ambiance. My wife and I started with our tropical drinks which were amazing. We then ordered the caprese and the smoked salmon appetizers. Both were absolutely mouthwatering. We thought it... More

The Mai Tais were not great. For the price how about adding some alcohol? And the shrimp appetizer was just blah. I would not go back.

After a long morning at the Grand Wailea spa, my friend & I were ready for lunch & some time outside! I figured lunch on a golf course would be perfect, and Kono's on the Green was the perfect choice! What we didn't know is that arriving at 2 was the perfect time! We were able to order off the...
