Ten family members dined. On the beach with excellent views. We ordered appetizers, entries and dessert. Food was very good especially the lobster appetizer and desserts (cheesecake and mudpie) They have a chocolate lava cake, you had two waits 10 minutes but it was worth it.

Our fourth stay at the Mana Kai over the years. Can't say that I was particularly impressed with the Five Palms. Decided on drinks and appetizers instead of dinner. A good Mai Tai, very good pork ribs, pretty good coconut shrimp and a fair rendition of a California roll. Luckily food was 1/2 price during happy hour, but still disappointed... More

My wife and I visited this restaurant several times during our honeymoon. The menu had an assortment of delicious items to choose from. Beautiful patio seating overlooking the ocean. Thank you for the great hospitality. Mahalo.

Food and service was good but not exceptional however the oceanfront view was spectacular. Overpriced for quality of food but a great location to see a beautiful sunset. Ask for a table on the patio.

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.
