Excellant food and view but rushed

The food and view is always excellent. However a person walks through the dining area constantly with an ipad checking on how close people are to finishing their meals. We were not done with our salads and the entre was served. Very rushed meal.

We have been to Maui twice and eaten here four times. The fish tacos are amazing. Not as good when it isn't the mahi mahi variety, but still great. Catch of the day was great when swordfish. Pricey, but worth it. Great ambiance. Beautiful sunsets. Friendly service. Perfect location. Good craft beer selection as well.

If you are looking for a spectacular view of the sunset and enjoy the surroundings and drinks, look no further! We enjoyed their Mai Tai's along with another drink, 1944, and they were fantastic. For dinner we split their Fish Tacos (an absolute must) and fresh Tuna Sashimi. Everything was fantastic, food, service, friendly atmosphere and management. If you are... More

Went the Leilani's for lunch. Ordered the Chicken Strawberry salad, and the Cheeseburger and Fries. Both were good but not excellent. Salad would have been GREAT if it had mandarin oranges on it. The next day, we saw an add on TV in our hotel room advertising Leilani's Chicken Strawberry salad (of all things...) and guess what? It had a... More

This is THE PLACE to go to enjoy a sunset dinner in Whaler's Village! My husband and I enjoy this restaurant so much that we visited the restaurant twice on our most recent trip. The food is great! The seafood is fresh!

My Friend and I had the Mahi Mahi fish tacos and they were great. My wife had the fresh of day and really liked it. Over all the service and food were excellent especially in touristy location.

We stopped after dinner for a quick drink. The place was packed so we were seated at the bar which was fine as we didn't want to wait for a table. I had one of the blended drinks and hubby had a beer. Both were just o.k. My blended drink was recommended by bartender (The Lime in the Coconut) however... More

Great food, great view, extremely comfortable whether you are downstairs or upstairs in the formal dining area. You can NOT go wrong with this for pupus, lunch, dinner, or just to have a drink. And kudos to Leilani's for providing their space to the Ka'anapali Beach Ministry church service every Sunday at 8:00 am. Stop in for an amazing service,... More

Try the fresh salads (probably the best I have ever had and I am not a kid!). Husbands had fish tacos and nachos-- both excellent. And the hula pie is to die for!! Make ad reservation as It is a busy place in the evening.. Sunset view great.

You will love the location near the ocean in Kaanapali and the food is very appropriate for Hawaii. there are lots of seafood and fish but the steaks and ribs are also excellent. We are never disappointed but if we are looking for an inexpensive lighter meal we like to eat downstairs. At dinner time the upstairs has a bigger... More
