We'd booked the Banyan Tree in Kapalua for an important wedding anniversary dinner. The restaurant is in a lovely oceanfront location at the Ritz Carlton. We had cocktails at the bar which were delicious. Our meal was also delicious and beautifully cooked. Our waiter, although efficient and pleasant enough, was too 'in your face' which we really don't appreciate. All... More

Small menu, we ordered 2/4 entrees and the waitress told us they were some of her favorites on the menu, we had to laugh. Burger was so so, fish tacos were good. Fairly standard fare, nothing to write home about.

This banyan tree is amazingly large and old. Located in a small park like setting, it creates a great place to relax and enjoy the ambience.

We dined with a new friend from Switzerland. It's been awhile since we dined there but our old friend Robert is still there and made us feel like we never left. He made our guest feel like an old friend too. Service was great even with Robert's busy section. We started with the duck buns - do not miss these... More

It was wonderful to see the Banyan Tree open again. The ambience and food is not quite what it was when it first opened. However, it all seemed great with the deft hand and charming patter of Robert. He has been with the Ritz Carlton Kapalua since in opened in 1982. His romantic French accent and attitude certainly carried the... More

I would have given it a 5 if the menu contained just a few more items. Admittedly, the items offered are a good representation, but considering the isolation of the hotel, throwing some old reliables on the menu would be an advantage.

Was looking for a fine dining restaurant to celebrate special birthday dinner. We were staying at Ritz Carlton and this place is one of the restaurants inside the hotel premises. Food was good, service was good and views were good. Wanted to make the birthday special and it did.

Last night in Maui before heading to Bora Bora, we had dinner in the hotel restaurant. What an amazing experience! Somehow it felt different to the previous night where we sat outside, that time it felt more like a very casual restaurant. But this time, we sat inside, the service was amazing! The food was great! A must for a... More

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!
