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.

We went to Capische last night and had a wonderful time. The service is outstanding. When you phone they ask if there are any allergies. We do have some and they were very attentive and helpful. The server was great and they called us the next day to make sure we enjoyed our dinner, this is really a first. The... More

Beautiful. Eat in the garden, where you'll get your own private grotto to enjoy the beautiful weather and quiet ambiance of Capische. The food was excellent, we ended up only getting a main course (I planned on dessert), but the servings were generous enough that we filled up on the one dish! It was a wonderfully relaxing place to spend... More

Amazing meal on our last night in Maui. We loved the caprese and Kale salads. Tried the fish crudo sampler and loved the ahi but weren't as into the other options. Pumpkin gnocchi was delicious and my husband's Cioppino was one of the best he has ever had. Portions aren't huge but given the prices for food on Maui this... More

We reserved here for our last night in Maui. We asked for the lanai. They called a few days before to tell us a large party had booked the lanai and would we be OK with the garden. Turned out, the garden is the better choice, we had a lovely table along the stone wall closest to the ocean. The... More

Capische is a smaller restaurant with all tables facing the ocean. Perched about 300 feet above the ocean allows for spectacular sunset viewing. Our food and service were excellent and the wine list is exceptional. For a nice night out away from the crowds in Wailea, head up to Capische.

We popped into Capische for Happy Hour from 5 to 7p. We had heard about the view but it is just breathtaking when you see it with your own eyes. The drinks were good and pricy. We got the lamb and mushroom ragout which was so tasty, and a cheese plate. Those were good so we decided to make it... More
