I had just got engaged on the nearby beach and we had a reservation here. The staff were great and congratulated us and gave us the amazing Hula Pie dessert for free as a gift. We were watching the sunset, eating delicious food. I had the Lamb which was wonderful. We had cocktails to celebrate which were lovely. Definitely recommend... More

I'm big foodie & hunt for great food.

Never tried inside bc wait usually long, but I'd rather sit by the beach... More

Now before you pass judgment on this place, I can only speak on the top restaurant. The bottom is a different menu with different staff. We sat up top with excellent view. Our server was wonderful, well versed in the menu and very nice. I had the seafood pasta with fenel sauce, and perfectly al dente pasta. My wife had... More

I am an avid fan of the Fish Tacos and it would be very hard to beat these ones. Love coming here every time we visit Maui.

We had great time here! Loved the crab cakes, an appetizer close to a caprese was my favorite, the poke was prefect! With so many pupu's I ordered the scallop appetizer and a ceasar salad. Both were great - pan seared rare scallops! The other dish was the seafood pasta- very good, if I had ordered it I would have... More

We consider Leilani's On The Beach one of our favorite places to eat in Maui. We are in Maui frequently and always end up at Leilani's several times. To watch the sunset and eat the best fish taco's we have found. Finish your meal by sharing a Hula Pie. It does not get any better.

We eat there every time we go to Hawaii. Love Kaanapali beach. This is a nice place for dinner with view in some areas of restaurant. I will go back.
