Description: Joe's Nuevo Latino celebrates the incredible diversity of food from Latino...
Joe's Nuevo Latino celebrates the incredible diversity of food from Latino communities around the world. Guests enjoy a culinary journey designed to introduce the best, most inspired Latin flavors blended with fresh, local ingredients. The menu features small and large plates, all equally sharable, and includes dishes such as Peruvian ceviches, Argentinian-style beef with chimichurri, Puerto Rican pastele, spicy shrimp with Ecuadorian corn cakes, Cubano conchita pibil (slow roasted pork shank), chicken tamale with Oaxacan mole, Mexican-style roasted fresh fish, and traditional Spanish pulpo a la plancha (grilled octopus). Guests will experience a contemporary, communal, high energy atmosphere and a bar featuring traditional and imagined cocktails with a particular emphasis on tequila and mezcal. The creative force is Chef de Cuisine Gary Johnson, one of Maui's top up-and-coming young culinary talents and an avid traveler with a passion to share his interpretation of nuevo latino cuisine. The award-winning management team includes partners: Chef Roger Stettler, Chef Bev Gannon, Greg Shepherd

Great views, excellent Latin dishes

Formerly known as Joe's Bar & Grill, the new menu style and new transformation is incredible. Open air dining room with excellent bar, tables and large-party high-top table give to an amazing view of Lanai and Kaho'olawe. Great Latin ambiance with music and movies playing, nice staff.

Strange location in the Wailea Tennis Center with parking above the restaurant on the street. Excellent sunset views and Happy Hour worth a visit. Fun Latin Cuisine, everything fresh and delicious. Lots of beverage choices, a definite destination for Tequila Drinkers. Fun open air atmosphere( they even play old westerns on the wall) currently a new restaurant so not too... More

New sunset drink and tapas menus. We were so happy to have stopped in. Two of the best cocktails we've had in a week. Opted for the more unique appetizers of beef tongue and skewered octopus. The flavors and textures were off the chart good. I cannot wait to return as the happy hour starts up again at 9.

This restaurant has lots of possibilities...a nice atmosphere, some good dishes and friendly staff, but it is definitely average right now. There are not a lot of menu choices, and our vegetarian friends found slim pickings. For appetizers, the ceviche was OK and the shrimp was delicious. My steak entree was very good, but my husbands chicken dish was undercooked... More

Joe's is an amazing restaurant with excellent food made from fresh, organic ingredients. There were so many delicious-sounding choices on the menu, that it was hard to choose. We were only in Wailea for a few days and were thrilled when we found this place. It is a bit hard to find as it is no easily visible from the... More

We chose joes after reading a series of good and bad reviews. Shortly before dinner time, we received a call from some local friends suggesting that we dine elsewhere because they were too new and didn't yet have it together. We chose to dine there anyway because we had a hankering for creative Latin food. The dishes were good- no... More

Four of us really enjoyed sharing small plates and entrees. A great place if you want to try lots of dishes. Delightful layers of flavor and texture in every bite. Try the hangar steak with chimichurri...it was excellent. Server Tony recommended a lovely wine to go with it. Friendly and efficient service. Glorious sunset view.

top Chef Beverly Gannon and her husband Joe Gannon open a restaurant you can expect the best. After all the couple is behind the over-the-top excellent Hali’imaile General Store, a booming catering business and the popular Gannon’s. So it was no surprise that a recent dinner at the couple’s newly opened Joe’s Neuvo Latino proved exceptional. Set above the Wailea... More

We were fans of the old Joe's and couldn't wait to try the new Joe's. We weren't disappointed. This is now our favorite restaurant on Maui. We ate their twice on our recent trip. During our first visit we tried the fish vera cruz and it was the best fish dish we had ever eaten. It was full of flavor... More
