“Must do in Maui”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

This is by far the best meal we had in Maui. It was a parents night out. The venue though was great overlooking the ocean and the napili coast by the montage. Staff was great from the valet, to the greeter to the wait staff. The menu was very local in nature which made it interesting for everyone. We ended up spending 3+ hours there as it was just a great environment. The cocktails were also devine. Molokai Mule a must (if you need a break from the mai tai...). If you want a great adult, couple, parents night out. This will make you feel elegant, cool and refined!

“Great Location, Decent Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

Awesome sunset view. The beach deck is the best spot in the restaurant, and it's surprisingly open, even when the restaurant is at its busiest, which is just about every night.

The food is decent, though a bit over priced in my opinion. The bread pudding was one of the best I've ever had. I definitely recommend that if you're going to get desert.

“Not worth the money or the hype”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

This place was good, but not great like everyone says. As others have said the combinations of flavors on the plate was strange. They were going for an artsy dish and did not know when to stop adding ingredients. The wine list was very good.

The view is AMAZING though. Without the view I would only give this place 2 stars.

“Excellent quality dinner with an AMAZING view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

My wife and I celebrated our 10th anniversary here in June. We had a great dinner with an excellent view of the sunset over Molokai. Just a perfect atmosphere. I ordered the half portion lamb and my wife ordered the daily beef and greens. All the meat just melted in our mouths with flavor. Great wine selection if you are so inclined. A little on the pricey side for us, but worth the splurge for our anniversary dinner. Our waiter was very accommodating, getting a picture of us on the sunset and walked us through each entrée available. We'd go here again for a special occasion.

“Grab a cocktail and get ready for romance.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

A stunning setting to watch a sunset, this stunning restaurant and bar looks over Kapalua bay. Make sure you have a Molokai Mule, with Bourbon, Pimm's, lime, ginger slices and orange bitters. After a cocktail or two head down to the beach and check to see if sea turtles are swimming around the rocks. Or why not make a night of it and stay for dinner?
