Typical of the 5 Palms restaurant on Keawakapu beach on Maui's south shore we had a wonderful dinner with family and friends. The Sunday dinner special was lobster or prime rib. Perfect. Outstanding service. Very pleasant atmosphere and a beautiful sunset. If we had a complaint it would be the lobster was farm raised and therefore a little mushy. But... More

We dined at 6:00 pm on Oct 23rd. Service was absolutely outstanding! Our server 'Tori T.' went above and beyond to make sure absolutely everything was perfect. She highly recommended the seasonal 'Monchong Special' as well as the '1 1/4 pound Whole Kona Lobster'. I'm not a seafood lover, but decided to try the Monchong Special. It was to die... More

We came here twice during our stay. Once for lunch which was ok but over priced and then again for their happy hour. This restaurant sits on the nicest stretch of beach in Kihei. Probably the nicest place to have a happy hour on the beach to watch the sunset.

Our third trip to Maui and after much coaxing from colleagues at home we went to the 5 Palms for their happy hour and half price pupus. There is really no other spot in Kihei (to my knowledge) where you can sit that close to the beach to enjoy sunset. It was a gorgeous spot and the view is fantastic.... More

Pricey place on the water. Perfect place for sunset and cocktails. Then stay for a wonderful dinner. Food was excellent, servers were happy and helpful. Drinks were great. You defiantly get your money's worth here.

Dinner for three ladies in Maui to celebrate their friendship was wonderful. The sunset was lovely, the food delicious, and Roy, our server was terrific - welcoming, funny, and very accomodating.

After spending a great week in Maui we saved this restaurant for last as it was recommended by a few people we spoke to. Upon arrival even though I bothered to make a reservation we were seated in a very bright spot with a great view of some beach chairs. Giving our name did not really matter. Our waitress was...
