We were last here five years ago, when the restaurant was named Canoes. When you spend a couple of months here and want to eat out, you tend to look for deals. We would go to Canoes for this reason and thought we would try the "early bird" special here. The wait staff was very obliging and the food was excellent, much better than Canoes (although we used to enjoy the salad bar). The salad was very good, especially the dressing. The Mahi fish was as good as more expensive restaurants. The flavor accented by the curry sauce, along with good veggies and mashed potatoes was truly excellent. We took the cheesecake home as we were full after the first two courses. In reading other reviews, we will try the happy hour as well next time. We have found that one of the best ways to beat the high cost of restaurant food here on Maui is to go to early birds or go to happy hours and enjoy reduced price pupus and drinks.
