We booked ahead online so we could enjoy a sunset dinner. The server was very friendly and personable. We decided to go with the catch of the day selections both were amazing. If I had to choose one I would go with the parmesan crusted catch but we loved both. Since the server learned we were there for our wedding/honeymoon... More

Caught a good Sunset and enjoyed hula pie for dessert. If you expect the crowds and have low expectations it works. Just go with the flow and have a MaiTai

What can you say...can't beat the location next to the beautiful ocean and resorts. It's the perfect touristy thing to do. Don't forget to get your parking ticket validated at the end of your meal. Otherwise you would pay $15 for parking. Food is good, but nothing special.

Had a wonderful lunch today outside on the lower level of Leilani's. The ocean views are perfect and the food was equally good. Really easy for any guest staying at the Westin to just pop over for lunch or dinner considering it's a two minute walk. The Poke was incredibly fresh and delicious. Staff was attentive and very friendly. Brett... More

Right on the beach at whalers village. Love this place. They even have church on Sunday which is definitely worth going to. (The restaurant opens a little later)

The fish tacos were good and probably the only really good thing. Since it is one of the only options can't say much. Their menu is not fancy, it's very typical American foods with no much of a Maui flare.

We always enjoy Leilani's on the beach. Lobster is amazing. Reservations a must. Tables upstairs in the balcony have great sunset views.

My family of four ate in the dining room with two of us ordering from the fixed price selections. The waiter was clearly not thrilled we were going with this choice, I assume, because he wanted a higher bill/tip. Our final bill with drinks, dinner and dessert still came to about $250. The food was very good and the view... More

The Feast at Lele is for sure the best luau experience on Maui. The food is plentiful m, drinks non-stop, and all is served to your private table. This is not a mass buffet, or group dining with strangers. This is a six course dinner with those you love in a beautiful setting, while being entertained by talented dancers portraying... More
