“Panameric Views of Molokai, Natural Beauty of Kapulua: Great Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

Outstanding breakfast, reasonable prices 10 miles north of Lahaina. Situated high above Kapalua The Plantation House Restaurant beats Lahaina's Front Street, Kaanapali and hotel breakfast dining in quality, prices, and endless ocean and mountain views..

We were two couples. We started with Warm Homemade Banana Bread and coffee. One of our friends ordered a Kula Spinch 3 -egg omlette and the other a Paniolo Breakfast - local style Rancher's Breakfast. My spouse and I shared a 3-egg Portuguese Sausage omelette. The coffee was superbe and the jelly complimented the toast which came with each order.

The lunch menu prices and selectiona are uniques. The Dinner items are as expensive as Front Street restaurants and Kaanapali hotels.

Please do not feed the birds that fly through the 180 degrees of open views.

It is always a treat to find a restaurant in Lahaina, Kaanapali ioffering quality breakfast selections at reasonable prices.

“A Wonderful Valentines Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

We made a wonderful choice for our Valentine's dinner. The Plantation house was romantic, has incredible views and the food was outstanding! We both enjoyed the fresh catch and finished every bite. Thanks to the great service we both felt like we were on vacation! We will visit again for breakfast and for sure another fantastic dinner is in our near future!

“Not the same”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

This used to be where we went for a romantice dinner. We knew it was a little pricey as most of Kapalua is but the food, service and view made it worth ever cent. This time, only the view was the same.

They changed chef's and where they used to have a selection of fish dishes that could be fixed different ways, now there was one fish one way. Prices had gone through the roof and dfinately not worth it. The chef we found had gone to the new Kahana Grill, which we also ate at and was great.

After 20 years of going to Plantation House, we are crosing it off our list.

“Beautiful setting. Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

This is a high end restaurant at the golf course. A friend recommended we go at lunch to enjoy the beautiful view, great food and a bit lower prices than in the evening. They serve brunch until early afternoon every day. We had eggs benedict, which were perfect.
