This is a must do dining experience on Maui. The food is absolutely fabulous and the setting of the restaurant is so Hawaiian. Make reservations way before going to Maui because it is a very popular eatery on the island.

It was difficult to get into and not enough parking. But the beautiful view made up for that. The food was excellent and the staff was very pleasant also. I loved the decor.
