“Good view”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

The view of the sunset wag great. We had eaten a lot of fish throughout the wk so we wanted to eat sometging different. I had the beet salad, which was good. My husband had the chicken, it wasn't good. The sauce was not good. I would recommend coming here for a drink and watch the sunset and then go somewhere else for dinner.

“Delicious food, romantic setting right on the beach.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

Tropica is one of the restaurants at The Westin Hotel. We were staying at the Westin Kaanapali Villas, which is how we first heard about it. Seeing as this was our honeymoon, my new husband wanted to have a very romantic dinner, and was told about their tables right on the beach, so he made a reservation the day we arrived for the following Saturday night.
We were promptly escorted to our table set up just inches from the sand on the adjoining lawn. our waiter came over immediately, and took our beverage order. The service started out exemplary but by the end of the night, it had slowed down a bit. But not enough to mar the evening. I ordered the Tropica version of steak and lobster which was quite good, but my husband ordered the seafood pho that was out of this world. Hands down,the single best dish we had our entire trip! It had a Kona lobster tail, mussels, clams, shrimp, and the most flavorful, light, refreshing broth you can imagine. It was divine! For dessert we shared the pineapple Foster, which was good, but not nearly as memorable as the pho. By the time dessert arrived, the wind had picked up and it was a bit on the chilly side, so I would suggest bringing a light wrap.
Thanks to a coupon we received from our hotel which offered us 20% off, we managed to save a few dollars. The restaurant isn't cheap, but in line with other comparable Maui fine dining restaurants.

“Very Good But...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

Tropica is part of the Westin Hotel. Its menu and food are first rate as is the setting- directly on the beach. However, it is outrageously expensive...and I'm from NYC!

“Disappointing Buffet, but ...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012 via mobile

We have been coming to the Westin for the Island breakfast buffet since 1987. For the first time, we were very disappointed with the quality and selection. They removed lox and eggs Benny from the buffet. One could order eggs Benny as an extra for $3 for one, in addition to the price of the buffet. The grilled fish was heavily seasoned and probably designed for another use. No French toast available as they rotate it with pancakes and we wre on the wrong day. The pancakes were not good.

Now for the good part. One can order eggs Benny from the menu, two for $21. Macademia nut pancakes we excellent fresh as a menu item. We were told that fish could be ordered the same way. Honestly, the buffet is no longer an attractive selection and the Hyatt Regency at Swan Lake has a much better selection of food for breakfast, including eggs Benny.
