Staying at the Grand Wailea it is an obvious choice for dinner with the children. Sitting above the main resort pool it has a lovely view across to the ocean. There is a childrens menu available. The calamari starter was divine, steaks fresh and cooked perfectly. Overall it was a enjoyable evening. I think you can eat at better places... More

We have probably visited the Bistro almost every day during our stay at the Grand wailea, and each time it's been wonderful. Whether you just hover to check the score of the game, have one drink, have lunch or stay all day to watch football, they treat you like family. We just spent about 5 hours at the bar watching...

Loved the service here! One of the waitresses was fantastic. I do not remember her name...too many cosmo's on the rocks! Get the hot dog. It is enourmous and delicious. It is expensive but convienent. Try it at least once while you are at the Grand Wailea.

You might think this is your casual pool restaurant for burgers and beer. You will quickly find out this is serious food that just happens to be by the pool area of the Grand Wailea Resort. Excellent Ahi Tuna anything and apetizers of all kinds.

In Grand Wailea resort. Adjacent pools and overlooking ocean, which is the real treat. In expensive by Wailea resort standards and food is reliable but not outstanding. Service a little slow.

Look, you will feel fleeced when you eat in Maui, and especially fleeced when you eat at ANY hotel. Molikni has some great food, the ahi tuna sandwich is great. we only eat here while we are at the pool.

We went for coffee and dessert one night. Very good brownie sundae pie ... With local ice cream (Roselani) and great homemade brownie... Not just a brownie with ice cream on it... much more!

Don't get the $18 nachos. Its made with stale chips from a bag. u get like 10 chips. they don't taste better than the movie theatre stuff. Also, the drinks are pretty much all juice. I watched them make their drinks for hours. They tediously measure the liquor. No more than 1 jigger in each drink.

A couple of times of year when we come to the Grand Wailea -- Bistro Molokini is our first stop upon arrival and check-in for lunch. We tend to like both the nachos and the lettuce wraps. We also sit at the bar because we find the table service to be slow and uneven. Yes, it is pricey -- but... More

The first thing we noticed was cats running all over the place and under our table. The food is not good at all and the weirdest menu selection we ever saw. We had a party of 8 and after we left we went to another restaurant off property to get a proper meal.
