Chef Wes does things with food I never knew you could do. Compressed watermelon? Thai Basil Lime Chili Emulsion? The food is fantastic, the ambiance high end Hawaiian (sitting next to lovely koi ponds), the service attentive, and the venue makes for a relaxing walk through Kaanapali Ocean Resort Villas properties afterwards. Can't beat it.

This may be Italian but visit for the exquisite preparation pf menu and special entree's, wine cellar and service. Set overlooking the expansive tropical koi pond and gardens at the Kaanapali Ocean Resort Villas, the restaurant harvests much of the greens and vegetables from its own garden and local farming community and the freshness is unmistakable. This has become a... More

6 of us had a great meal at Pulehu tonight. We took advantage of the early 5:30-6:00 price fixe special which worked well for friends leaving and others just arriving at the villas. There were about 6 appetizers and 6 entrees and 2 desserts to choose from. The bruschetta, arugula and beat salad, and the Caesar salad all were excellent... More

We went to dinner here twice on our honeymoon. Amazing food and fantastic service! Ask for Monique! The Chef was great and even made a special meal for me from scratch that met my dietary needs.

During our stay Flossie came in and we were forced to have dinner at Puleho on night and that was by far one of the worst meals I have ever eaten. Having read other yelpers reviews of the hotel restaurant I already knew that I wasn't going to get 5 star food but for 260.00 I would have liked to... More

The location is excellent on the first floor of Westin Kaanapali. The atmosphere is upscale, lively and upbeat. The service was excellent. The shrimp with risotto was excellent as was the eggplant Parmesan. The beet salad was delicious

We celebrated one of our traveling companion's birthdays with dinner at this attractive, and highly rated restaurant. We had an excellent meal. The scallops were cooked perfectly. The Chicken Fetuccini Alfredo was a favorite. And even the time honored spaghetti and meatballs got thumbs up. There were 6 of us and we were able to get a private room. The... More
