Ask for an outside table when you make your reservation. This will give you seating next to the Koi pond with a great view of the ocean and the sunset. The view will add to the wonderful experience you're are about to undertake. While they have all the regular Italian dishes it's the seafood dishes that really set Pulehu apart... More

Great Italian food. We really enjoy our experience. But you will need a reservation if you want to dine before 8:30pm.

The setting is good. Quiet, but do have the occasional kids. Good variety of food. We always had the 3 course meal which included appetizer, entrée and dessert. Server was great, we went back twice because of her service and food. I recommend seafood courses like fish, scallop and calamari.

All dishes have distinct tastes, not your classic italian dinner stop, super kid friendly too. They sat our group of 9 in a private room and the kids could be loud and no one could hear them. (nice touch Pulehu). We would book dinner at 5:30 and enjoy the classic sunset as the tiki's are lit.

Pulehu boasts that it is an award winning Italian restaurant. The setting and ambience in front of a spectacular Koi pond at the Westin Villas at Ka'anapali certainly works its magic. The appetizers were very good - the calamari was truly unique and excellent. The short ribs, however, were bland and very disappointing - great for a cafeteria or old... More

great food for parents and kids. They had a 200 year old pizza recipe that is the talk of the trip. The seafood here is amazing too. The service makes it all worthwhile too.

We chose this restaurant because of its location - that it was in our hotel, and also overlooking the koi ponds. I am fascinated by koi fish, what can I say! We also like Italian food, but who doesn't? This restaurant was rather average. I was disappointed that despite our early dining time all the tables by the koi were... More
