Spectacular view, super high prices but certainly not a place we would go back to again and again. Told Capische we were booking for a special anniversary dinner and reminded them of that fact when we arrived - received no recognition or celebratory treatment at any time during our dinner. Food was very good but the entire dining experience was... More

Staying at the Hotel Wailea had the added perk of getting a coupon for free dessert at Capische. So while the actual restaurant was a bit out of our price range, we came for the dessert. The hostess was a little strange; even though the restaurant was completely empty she insisted that she was going to take 10 minutes to... More

My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Wailea where this restaurant is housed (see review below). At the urging of the staff, my husband and I ate there, the result of which was that he ended up with food poisoning (we think the pasta carbonara with the raw egg was the culprit). He was sick all night and didn't... More

We came here for our 32 anniversary and had a great table on the lanai and even our menu had happy anniversary printed inside which was a great added touch The wait staff is so professional and had great recomendations, the sunset was beautiful, the food spectacular and it is a bit pricey but great for a special occasion

Lovely view, but food is inconsistent and overpriced. Have had both inspired meals and average food here. Not worth the price to me.

Mahalo for your review, SueInSac. We appreciate your feedback. It seems like you've been here a couple of times, so you know that everything on the island is expensive due to the location. We hope you'll reconsider trying us if you visit Maui again to enjoy one of our inspired meals. More

Overpriced with a limited menu. Exorbitantly priced wines and drinks. Staff were great We had booked this restaurant because of some positive reviews. We entertained my cousin and his new bride there. Location is great, but value for money it is not! We voted with our feet and went down to the Marriott the next night

This is a great place for a special occasion dinner. Ask for a table on the lanai, if you want an ocean or sunset view. Impeccable service and attention to detail. This chef really cares about food and it shows. The best hotel restaurant I have ever tried. Pricey, but worth every penny

Repeat visit; has not deteriorated over the years despite success. Beautiful and very romantic setting on a balcony with stunning views of south Maui sunset (most diners took pictures while eating), spectacular food carefully served, friendly and attentive staff. Would be perfect for post wedding private dinner. Very pricey.

"Capische? is a gem, in a quiet and elegant resort on a hill, with a magnificent sunset view from the terrace restaurant. The food was outstanding, the ambience could not have been better, and the wait staff was both attentive and charming. I am a huge carpaccio fan, and theirs was as good as any I have had in Italy....

This was our first dining experience at Capische. We sat on the lanai with a fantastic view of the sunset. Food and service were both top notch...our favorites were the local kale salad and the malsadas for dessert. We've become malsada experts and these might be the best we've had on Maui!
