We visited the 5 Palms for some drinks at sunset, it's a great location but the drinks were mediocre. We had Mai Tais that just tasted like rum with low-quality juice from the grocery store. The bar is a little small you have no view of the sun setting into the ocean. There are other places on the island with... More

Arguably one of the prettiest views on Maui to have a meal. Great breakfasts here and friendly service. When the windows are open and the ocean breeze blowing in, it's hard to imagine a prettier spot. If you're not looking for something healthy, the French Toast from Hawaiian Sweet Bread will definitely make you feel like you're on vacation.

Another enjoyable meal at 5Palms! I always feel a little special when Margie is serving. Perhaps it's the smile in her eyes when she greets us... but it is the first of many pleasantries. Today's breakfast was excellent, thank you! It's worth stopping in yourself

The service we received at the 5 Palms was outstanding. We had Tori as a waitress and she went above and beyond. The food was great, and we got a table inside by the window which gave us an amazing ocean/beach view. Overall the food and service was great. Would definitely recommend.

Stumbled on this restaurant when we were laying out on the beach. I desperately needed to go to tinkle and walked over to the hotel to see if they'd let me use their facilities. We saw the bar and decided to stay for happy hour...best decision ever made. HH drinks & food were affordable and delicious. The bartender told us... More

The approach to 5 Palms will not overwhelm you--think crowded parking lot at a condominium filled with vacationers, with a dirt overflow parking lot (use the free valet parking instead) but that's not what this restaurant is about. Once you're inside, the beach-front view from most tables is spectacular. We were seated on the covered terrace rather than in the... More

We were not staying here but heard about the happy hour. The prices for happy hour drinks and appetizers were very reasonable considering the ocean front view and being in Hawaii. There is free valet parking at the hotel entrance. The sunset was beautiful. You can easily exit the restaurant and access the beachfront for photos. The staff was friendly.... More

We just had a phenomenal dining experience at the 5 Palms Restaurant where the food was delicious but more so, our waitress made our dining experience an exemplary one due to her fabulous personality and knowledge of the cuisine and pairing suggestions. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening and 5 Palms...you are very fortunate to have Tori T. as part of... More

Celebrated a birthday right at sunset. Very nice, service was good, as was the food. Great views, right on the beach. Not cheap, but what nice place is on Hawaii.

Because this very popular bar area was full for happy hour, we were seated in the main dining area before it opened for dinner. What a bonus! The views were spectacular! The food was beautifully presented and very tasty, but the menu was a bit heavy on deep-fried offerings. There's lots of reasonably-priced happy hour sushi, however, for those who... More
