Great ingredients, great execution, very un-Italian in a good way!

Went to Capische last night for dinner with my wife. First of all, let me say that the web site doesn't do the restaurant justice, so don't be misled. It's not your typical Italian restaurant. The quality of the ingredients is very high, particularly the fish. The flavors of some of the dishes... read more

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Capische. It was a bit pricey but we loved the scallop appetizer and our entrees were delicious. The service was a perfect slow pace allowing us plenty of time to enjoy the perfect view of the breathtaking sunset.

Stayed at the Hotel ...dined here for breakfast everyday and had the one meal in the evening. The setting is intimate and romantic ...great ocean views. The servers for either breakfast or dinner were very friendly and attentive. All our meals were prepared with flair and originality ...especially enjoyed the waffles for breakfast. This is not a cheap place to... More

Perfect fine dining. My husband and I had a sitter last night so we took a romantic dinner at sunset on the lanai at Capische? I'd read many reviews and have been to Maui multiple times. I was nervous about whether it would stand up to the hype or just seem mediocre and overpriced. It was absolutely wonderful. I'm sorry... More

We tried Capische for the first time on this trip to Maui. The food and service were outstanding especially our server Erica. She knew how to pace a meal and help make it a very pleasurable experience. It was the most expensive dinner we had on this trip and that includes a lot of the upper end Wailea restaurants. Probably... More

We visited for breakfast in August 2015. The view is excellent. A nice quiet place to enjoy breakfast. The prices for breakfast are reasonable. I saw the dinner menu and it seemed pricey, but breakfast prices seemed what you might pay elsewhere. If you are looking for standard breakfast fare this might not be the place for you. All the...

A Chef friend recommended this for dinner...are we ever happy that we took his suggestion? Yep! We started with Shrimp/Lobster Tortellini, and Seared Scallops. Both were better than we could have imagined. Next course Braised Veal for me Duck for husband. We were sharing and tasting every dish. Both agreeing on the combination of flavors, degree of doneness, and presentation.... More

Beautiful views from every seat in the restaurant, and strongly recommended for those looking for fun varieties and combinations of flavors native to the locale. The portions are a little on the modest side, but it leaves you room for dessert, which you should not pass up for any reason whatsoever - dining here is a very memorable experience!
