Great Meal

Had a wonderful dinner while staying at the Ritz. Had a delicious steak although portions were small. Loved the duck buns appetizer as well. Great service and wonderful views.

Last time we were in Maui the Banyan Tree restaurant had not yet been re-opened. So happy that this time it was! Beautiful open air setting, great menu and service and food that was some of the best we had this trip. Hand crafted cocktails were a hit as well as a starter of the Lamb Meatballs with Harissa.

We had dinner with our family and it was a near perfect experience with wonderful food, nice quality wine, and great desserts. Simply a superb dining experience with excellent food and service. These guys know what they are doing and it meets the high standards expected at a Ritz Carlton resort.

This is the signature restaurant for the Ritz Carlton in Kapalua which is a fine place to stay as well. It is oddly a hike down the hill in a nondescript building by the pool bar and cafe. It does not have a dramatic beach view but you can view the ocean and sunset. It has excellent service from the... More

Had trouble getting reservations as we left it until 4 pm. Got in at 8:30 pm and were one of the last couples to finsih. Service was outstanding up unitl they determine your price point then back off accordingly. Food quality was outstanding and location was tropical. How can it get better than this? PS overall experience equals price point... More

We tried the Banyan Tree on our last night of vacation, and my only regret is not trying it earlier so we could have gone again! Everything about the evening was outstanding. We sat outside and enjoyed the breathtaking view, watching the sunset over the ocean. The staff was extremely friendly, many had been working there for years, and the... More

The food is excellent. The sommelier is knowledgeable. Their Riesling is really refreshing and nice. However, with just one great waiter, they can get stretched very thin on busy nights. Then, they're sloppy.

This was a red carpet treatment from the minute the chef greeted us as we walked in the door! The service was amazing and the food was wonderful. We were very tired and it was a great way to relax at the end of a busy day.
