Mick Fleetwood (Fleetwood Mac) is a long-time resident of Maui and he has created a wonderful restaurant/experience in Lahaina. The two-story building is on front street, but you walk into the back of the building, ascend a vintage tiled staircase to the first floor of the restaurant. This is actually the second floor of the building. The rooftop has been outfitted with a bar, lounge and dining area. Another great thing about this bar is the music--it plays softly in the background, loud enough to hear but not blaring. You can actually have a conversation without raising your voice. They play Fleetwood Mac but include other great artists from the same time period as FM, which I thought was really nice. Later in the evening there is a live band that Mick plays with occasionally. He was not there at this time because he was touring in Europe.
If you are on Maui, you must make an effort to go to Fleetwood's. Happy hour is from 3-5 pm. Make a reservation for dinner at 5:30 and ask for a table with an ocean view on the rooftop. Go to happy hour and get there at 3 for a good spot on the roof. Just relax and enjoy. Have an appetizer and some of their signature cocktails. You will love it!
The service here is 5 Star. Our experience was amazing. We did not have reservations (our mistake!!) and it was our last evening on Maui. We showed up for happy hour at 4:30 (another mistake of ours). The hostess was so gracious. We explained to her our dilemma (no reservations) and she was able to accommodate us on the roof. We sat at a settee/coffee table near the bar. The view of the ocean and Lanai was absolutely gorgeous. We started with the Guacamole & Chips, both house made and very, very good. We each had a cocktail. I had the Cucumber Rickey, so refreshing!! My husband had the Lime in the Coconut which was equally delish.
Dinner was excellent. I had the Wild Mushroom Borsettini and my husband had the Chicken Curry. Both were generous servings and full of flavors!
The best part of the Fleetwood experience happens at 6 pm everyday. Mick Fleetwood's friend, Manu, comes and offers a Hawaiian blessing. He tells a brief story of Hawai'i and the principles by which he lives. Afterward, a Scottish bagpiper comes a plays a few tunes (a nod to Mick's heritage). It's very special and not to be missed.
After the ceremony, the sun begins to set as if on cue! Wow, what a great experience. This was one of our most favorite places in Maui. We will be back next time on the island.
By the way, we picked up a coupon for a free appetizer with purchase of two entrees at one of the snorkel rental places.
