Based on the location we thought we were in for a top notch breakfast with our grandchildren. Wrong!! The ambience was great. Everything went downhill from there. The service was fair but we found food of poor quality And if you are looking for real Canadian bacon this is not the place to go. We did not find the potato... More

Nice to have a restaurant on site we thought, but we found out it was leased to the resort. Prices were high for the surroundings, food not impressive, and drink prices better suited for the high end resorts down the street...The place looked tired and in need of polish, but location was beach front and open air..I must say the...

What combo, great view, relaxed customers, breaching humpback whales and fine sushi with a picture perfect view over Keawakapu Beach. Going back again.

First, best views of any restaurant on Maui (Except the Humu). Due to this, it is hard to complain. Fantastic ambiance because of the view. There are beautiful photos on the wall, and the chairs are a bit worn... The food in inconsistent at best. Portions are small and overpriced. A few years ago I would give this restaurant 5... More

We dined at the Five Palms on two occasions in June and July. The seating affords excellent views over the water. Our first meal was lunch where we ordered from a combined breakfast and lunch menu. Seating was prompt, the view great and the server very professional and attentive. The eggs benedict were wonderful. Our second meal was dinner. Again... More

Excellent setting on a private beach, tasty food, good service. We and brunch this time and ate on the covered patio (right on the beach) but dinner is also superb here. Not cheap, but worth it.

We went with friends for Happy Hour, which is 3-7 pm and you get half-price sushi and pupus in the lounge. The view is great -- right on the ocean -- and the food was great. There were a ton of people there -- not usual for a Tuesday night from what I am led to believe and we had... More

We went there twice for happy hour, buy one drink and pick great tasting dishes from the special menu. Best calamari, shrimp and ribs.

Gorgeous views of the ocean from just about every seat in the house! GM.Moki was extremely kind and recognized we were celebrating our honeymoon with great service. Wonderful, casual setting for a quick bite and enjoy all that is Maui.

On this trip to Maui, we made our third and fourth visits to 5 Palms. I had been warned by the owner of the condo where we stay that things were different at 5 Palms due to a new chef. I could see the changes on the menu, in that there didn't seem to be as much of an emphasis... More
