My wife and I have been to The 5 Palms multiple times over the past 20 years. It is the best location in Kihei, right on the beach. Sunsets are amazing! The Happy Hour is top notch. Half price appies and cheap well made cocktails. The restaurant is good as well, but over the years, IMO has become overpriced. That... More

We went to 5Palms for dinner with my wife and food was OK ( way too sweet) but what is inacceptable is the wine !! although they have a wine cellar to keep it at the right temperature, we've been served red wine at about 73°F !! Service is just OK for that level of price. Location is great and... More

This is my go-to place for breakfast on the beach. The service is classy, the bar is open and the food is eclectic. You can get a bagel and lox that is as good as the mainland , omelets are good but my favorite is this creamy, delightful creme brulee oatmeal. What a way to start the day! Excellent coffee....

Some of the best bar small plates I've ever had. Half price sushi and great ribs too. Don't miss the Brussels sprouts! Unbeatable view right on the beach.

We had a wonderful lobster dinner at this open-air restaurant, located right on the beautiful Keawakapu Beach near Wailea. Food was wonderful, and so was the service.

We are staying at the Mana Kai and luckily enough we have the 5palms restaurant right beneath us. We couldn't be luckier. They have a great happy hour which starts at 3pm and I believe finishes at 10pm. Their drinks are fantastic. I tried the Mai tai and the pina colada. Wow. They know how to make a good drink... More

Average breakfast, very bland. However, the service and view makes up for the shortcomings. Will try dinner next time.
