Great Finish to our Vacation.

Didn't make a reservation, but was able to sit at the bar and order off the menu. Fresh catch was wonderful. Tried the salami and cheese tray and could have made a meal just with that. Great service. Great view of the sunset made it a special night for us.

Capische is an upscale Italian restaurant in Wailea. It's a Relais and Chateau member so you can expect great food , great service, nice ambiance, albeit at steep prices. Our meal was all of the above.

Quite nice view, and nice staff, but no gluten free options, which seems strange these days for a higher end establishment. The food we had was kinda average and the Lamb was plain tough and chewy.

Amazing local food well prepared and so tasty. We dined in our room so didn't have the full restaurant experience. The food was amazing and service to our room quick. I loved the mushroom risotto!

I went here with my wife when we were staying at the Fairmont Kea Lani late last year. The meal was incredible and the staff couldn't have been more accommodating. It's now made its way into our regular rotation when we are in Maui!

The spaghetti we ordered was over salted and oily and we specified light on the salt and oil! We gave this restaurant two chances because we were staying at the hotel where this is but even room service was poor. Just so ladden with so much grease, It was not eddible!

The service was the best of our visit. The flavours in the food were exquisite. The view was excellent. The prices were eye watering, so be forewarned. Highly recommended.

As guests of the Hotel Wailea, we had several meals here and loved every one of them. The pasta is freshly made, the fish is fresh and cooked to perfection, and the service is wonderful. Upstairs tables provide beautiful ocean views, but the downstairs garden area is also fabulous!

the meal at Capische is OK but the price tag is hefty. There are plenty of places close by with better food, for less. The ambiance and service was great, pity the food didn't match.
