We golfed at the Plantation Course in Kapalua, Maui and dinned at the Banyon Restaurant with Magnificent Views! The food and service was superb, especially the French Onion Soup. It's a special treat to enjoy! Would highly recommend The Banyan!

A great restaurant by the Ritz pool, service was great and the food yummy. The ceviche was great although served different (in taco cups), which make it a bit harder to eat but yummy. The fish tacos are very good and have just the right amount of heat. Beers are cold. Convenient to the pool.

This restaurant looks right out on the ocean and it was beautiful. We ordered the chefs special of lobster and the chef comes to your table to present it. You need to make reservations well in advance of your visit.

My husband and I dined at The Banyan Tree restaurant for a romantic dinner near the end of our vacation in Maui. It was a lovely experience and one we will remember for a long time! We were seated near a window so that we could see the golf course and a bit of the sunset (although the evening we... More

Wonderful atmosphere, great food and service. We had a great dinner and a really nice evening out. The view is fantastic too! Ask for Robert, he was our delightful server. We had the steak and the ahi.

We had dinner here twice during our recent stay and enjoyed everything about our experience. The waitstaff was exceptional and the food expertly prepared and presented. My husband would highly recommend ordering the lobster served with a broth made at table side.

We were in Maui celebrating my wife's birthday with our two sons, daughter in law and new grandson. This restaurant located at the Ritz-Carlton Kapalua was wonderful - the views, the service, and the food were all top notch. It's expensive, which can sometimes cost a restaurant a rating point, but we knows it was going to cost quite a... More

Both food and service were excellent. Would definitely go again. Keep in mind Kapalua can be windy so ladies may want to take a light cover for the evening.

The food and service here was so good we ate here twice! Dustin provided excellent service to our party of 6. The highlight was when the chef prepared the broth for the lobster dish at the table using a hot infusion siphon. Entertaining and delicious! Perfect!

Food is over priced and low quality. We were rushed. Waitress hovered, as soon as appetizers were done main course arrived. All over in 30 minutes. Felt like I was at Macdonald's. bill was over $250 for 2 people and a 30 minute dinner. This is my second time at this restaurant and it is my last.
