If you are in Maui make sure you go see this massive tree. It takes up the better part of an entire block. On weekends artists are selling their pictures, photos, blown glass, carved wood, jewelry, paintings etc. You just have to see it to believe it is real!

Delicious food, great ambiance and service. We stayed at the Ritz so it was an easy walk. The cocktails were imaginative and tasty.

Wonderful dinner for our family - we thoroughly enjoyed everything we ordered. Service was excellent and the view was beautiful. Highly recommend. Also they did gluten free very well for my daughter who has celiac disease.

As the signature restaurant for the Ritz-Carlton Maui, the Banyan Tree should be an embarrassment for this wonderful property. Not only is the restaurant worn and dated, both the food and service left very much to be desired None of the food was more than mediocre. We simply wanted ice cream for dessert, and even this was bad...we were served... More

This is one of the better places I've eaten in Maui, next to Mommas Fish House this might be the best. Everything about it was great, and I would go again in a heart beat without a doubt.

A bit of a trip to get to it if you're not staying at or near the Ritz-Carlton, but the food is really good, they have a nice wine/cocktail list, and the service is excellent. No view to speak of at night, but a very quiet and secluded feel - very different from the Kaanapali or Lahaina areas. We had... More

First of all I have to complement the warm service. Everyone were super nice and very helpful. Especially Robert (the french gentleman that was taking care of us), he was charming, funny and so full of happy energy that just made us smile. THANK you for that. So why only 3 stars? For me it was the food. Given the... More

I have stayed at other Ritz Carlton properties and my expectations were high with the restaurant at this location. From the moment we attempted to make a reservation I knew this would to be the same. We called the hotel concierge and she stated the only available time was 830pm (which we were fine with) and I asked her where... More
