We dined here one evening during restaurant week. I had forgotten how incredibly beautiful the views are on the Lanai and the garden area is gorgeous. We ordered from the restaurant week menu 49.00 excluding drinks. I had salad, bolognese Spagetti, and they served s'mores with a donut for desert... read more

Well we've just had a night in Capische in the Wailea hotel and what a great night. The partridge starter was lovely as was the truffle risotto which my wife had. For the main course I choose the veal chop and my wife the Tuna, she made a great choice, mine was a little less successful as the first two... More

We spent two weeks in Maui celebrating the anniversary of my mom's passing. We knew we had to pick a perfect restaurant to celebrate, and Capische came through with flying colours. We were seated on the upper balcony... highly recommended as you'll want the front row seats to see the sunset. Had to try the pricey ($55) Cioppino and it... More

This is a beautiful restaurant up on the hill overlooking Wailea. The food was incredible. We had the crusted ahi and a few different pasta half orders which were all incredible. If you sit in the upper deck, you have a beautiful view, but if you sit in the garden, all of the tables are separeted by hedges, plants or... More

Capische? was nice, but as they advertise themselves as fine dining, I was disappointed. Certainly gastro-pubs in the UK offer similar cuisine.

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!
