Hungry in Ka'anapali? Walk off the beach and sit down at Lelani's and order the fish tacos! That's it, enough said. And oh, if you like onion rings order those too!!! You won't be disappointed!

We ate at the beachside grill and had a great experience. At first we were waiting for a table in the dining room but was told that the grill had immediate seating. I'm so happy we chose the grill because it was very laid back and had a nice view of the ocean. The wait staff was outstanding. They were... More

When we go to Maui we always make this our first place for dinner. Leilani's has really good food a great atmosphere and friendly service. The fish is fresh and they always have really good specials. The beef is cooked to perfection and is very tasty as well. The best desert is the original hula pie. I recommend you make... More

So the purpose of my trip was 2-fold: 1) to visit my 50th state and 2) to get married to my true love (so we can say we got Maui'd, j/k). Anyway, we booked Leilani's for our wedding dinner and we found it to be superb!!!! The food was excellent!!! We opened with the crab cakes and Meyer lemon ravioli... More

Oh man, I think of these fish tacos often since our vacation. Our family went here during happy hour so there was live music and discounted Mai Tai's. The music was great the dish tacos were fresh with a really awesome garlic aioli sauce. Food in Maui is expensive in general, but this was a great location and awesome food.

Had a wonderful evening at Lahaina Grill. Restaurant has both an upstairs dining room as well as a more casual grill downstairs (more like a casual patio seating). We had dinner in the upstairs dining room. Food was quite good. We had the seafood pasta. A little heavy for our taste but still quite good. The views from the upstairs... More
