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!

Very tasty and amazing food but definitely pricey. See what the special is that day as everything is fresh but the chef usually has something great each day to highlight. If you eat in the garden its nice but the patio has a great sunset view.

We where told to eat here by locals if we wanted italian food. The view and sunset was unbelievable. It was a small place which I liked because you had a lot more attention from the waiter. It was very pricey for the amount of food that you got. My husband order a dish with all mixed fish over pasta.... More

The drink menu is actually put together like someone cared about it. Tasteful. The food is also very good and has authentic accents.

We chose Capische for our 40th anniversary dinner based on recommendations from the hotel concierge staff. Based on the name, we thought it would be Italian with an island theme. It was not, and we were disappointed in the menu. The service and desserts were outstanding. It just wasn't the place we were expecting. Lesson learned for us and any... More

From the food (much of it locally grown), to the atmosphere to the service to the wine to the dessert, everything was fantastic. This place remains one of my two favorites, anywhere and for all time. My mushroom truffle risotto was so good, I ordered it twice and returned later in the week for a third round. True story. I... More

My wife and I are in Wailea for 12 days and we are scheduled to eat at all the best restaurants. Capische so far is our #1 choice to return to before we depart. It's up the mountain and has great ocean views. The open air bar and restaurant was like being in a 5 star Tarzan movie. The food... More
