One of my favorite places to take visitors - the beach setting is amazing at sunset. The breakfast and lunches are consistently good, and make sure you ask for Esa to be your server. He is always attentive and very knowledgeable. Dinner the last few times though, has been a different story. The chefs and the servers need to up... More

The 5 Palms Restaurant is noted for its wonderful ocean view and fine dining. However, it is getting a reputation for its happy hour too. The rib special is to die for, along with the sushi and shrimp. The Mai Tais, though are just so so. At 50% off, it's still not cheap but definitely worth it. I must note... More

The food presentation was delightful as well. We were there for a wedding celebration, the staff was just delightful. I would recommend this restaurant for... More

Met some friends for dinner last week. The service was great. Sage was very friendly and did a great job. Good menu and nice wine list. Had the Shrimp and Scallop Risotto which was excellent. Would highly recommend.

The restaurant is at the beach front. The food was excellent. I had pineapple creme brûlée was delicious. The waiter was very friendly. I took my baby away from the table as she was fussing. The waiter brought my decaf latte to me so that I could have it while it was still hot. The price was reasonable for such... More

This place is wonderful! 5 Palms is on a beautiful white sand beach, so the views are incredible. The servers are personable and perfectly attentive. The food was awesome. Everything was delicious and artfully prepared. There is a happy hour form 3-7 boasting half-off sushi (soooooo good) and drinks (including dang good Mai Tais). Since this restaurant was right next... More

My wife and I have been to Maui four times since 1977, and we've always stayed at the Mana Kai Maui. The Five Palms restaurant has been an important and enjoyable feature of our stay. (The restaurant's name was different years ago, but I don't recall the original name.) The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, and also provides a... More
