THis place is a little bit removed from downtown lahina, but still on front street and sits right on the water. The food was outstanding. Definitey get the AHI appetizer, it is big, but worth it. Salads and fish and chips were also outstanding. A...little pricey , but worth itMore

We had a small table outside looking out at the ocean. It was so picturesque and pleasant. The sun was about to go down and the breeze made it the perfect temperature. We watched as the sea turtles swam and nested in the water while...awaiting our food to arrive. The special fresh caught with the sides were a delight! We definitely will be coming back on our next visit.More

I may have thought the food was over-the-top IF I hadn’t nearly choked on it when I really looked closely at the price of what I ordered. Waitress recommended the ahi appetizer as what “Honu is known for.” We ordered it thinking it was probably...around $20. Got the bill and it was $38 (for four small slices! I was expecting prices like Red Lobster, but instead felt like we were at Ruth’s Chris or something...and it was only LUNCH! That being said, we were famished after two 1-hr+ dives at Mala Wharf and just wanted FOOD! Honu is conveniently located and they didn’t mind if we were dripping wet from diving. Kayla was very attentive and food was served in a reasonable time. And yes, the view is gorgeous even if it’s not at sunset. It was our first time dining out on our trip and we were thinking that if every casual restaurant like this in Maui had these kind of prices, we were gonna have make our own meals at the condo, or skip two meals a day. Luckily as we explored more and more dining choices in the area, we realized Honu is the exception, not the rule. .More

Now, this review is during the pandemic , so all the restaurants are operating with a limited menu. -After we were seated , i noticed a bunch of fans all around , going full blast, yikes, just hope no one had covid, otherwise , we...may be doomed, all the windows and doors were open, so that helped, i did ask the waitress, if the health dpt had any issue with all those fans, they don't , oh well. -the diner was fine, i had the appetizers ahi poke on rye bread with tomato, 38$, four pieces , it was very good and more then plenty for a main dish, i also had the soup squash , very tasty, my husband had the pasta with mussels, nice too. Why 3 stars, well, even so it was good, it was nothing special, i could have made all those dishes. I am being picky. We are glad we tried it, it is on the water and if you are lucky enough to get one of those tables, the view is grand and you are away from the fans. I doubted we will go backMore

My family and I revisted Honu after years of neglecting it simply because we haven't broken our regular routine. We were all so pleasently surprised at the service and our meals. Kayla was so helpful and just a joy to have as our server. Yasmin...was also very friendly and helpful! They really warmed our spirits on a chilly rainy Maui night. We ordered pizzas, a shrimp Po boy and a keiki fish and chips and everyone finished their entire meal! We loved the food so much we had to get dessert and we were not disappointed! Thank you for the great experience!More

Honu is fantastic! Everything about it was magical. The food was special and delicious, not your typical menu items. The flavors and creativity in the dishes really stood out. We got the mussels, the ahi bruschetta, and the octopus- all were fabulous. The food came...out fast, the ambiance is beautiful, and the service is on point. We had Kayla as our server and she was the BEST server I’ve ever had. She was so knowledgeable and passionate about the food on the menu, mindful of our food allergies, and so sweet and friendly. This was an unforgettable experienceMore

We enjoyed our dinner - nice setting, good service and good food - until we got the bill. My son and I split the whole fish special which was listed as market price on the menu. We were shocked when we saw the charge for...the fish was $119. Even though it was enough for 2 people this was well over the average price of an entree and the server didn’t even mention the price. We walked away feeling like we had been ‘taken’.More

I had a bad experience here for dinner last year- but this lunch was terrific. The Ahi Bruschetta was fantastic. Really, maybe the best ever. I could eat that morning , noon and night. We split a seafood scampi which the first time it was...served, mysteriously had no scampi in it! Our waitress was mortified and brought some and voila- the dish was delicious. The sauce was perfect and I think we both could have snarfed up another dish but demurred. They also made a mean latte. And to top it all off we had seats at the window and the surf roared in right there. It was perfect Hawaii.More

Lovely location, friendly service and good food. My kids loved the kids cheese pizza - thin crust brick oven pizza. The kale salad with walnuts, dates, and pomegranate seeds was delicious!

I would yes especially if you want sunset times (which I would recommend). It's also a smaller restaurant so better safe than sorry ;). Enjoy!! Try the mushroom pizza and lobster Mac and cheese!!!! Yum 😍😍
