reasonabley priced, went for lunch, service was good, beautiful view.

Would go back again, parking a little tough, but then would not deter us from going back again

We had read about Hana Hou in a guidebook and wanted something simple and relatively inexpensive (as compared to resort food) and this place exceeded the expectation.

We kept it simple with burgers (from Maui Cattle Company Beef), cooked as ordered, willing to accommodate with some slight dietary tweeks and served with Aloha. I splurged and had a piece of liliquoi cheesecake, made by the morning crew on site, and one week later, I'm still licking my chops.

Well worth the sidetrip after driving halfway to Hana.

Craving the real deal in Maui, we abandoned the beach.for a day upcountry, exploring Haleakala and Kula, then topped it off with a simple yet delicious meal at Hana Hou. The drive to the little town of Haiku was scenic, coursing around the curves of the country roads in the hills below the mountains. Suddenly we came upon the small shopping center and the modest cafe, with a hen and several chicks skittering about. Our sweet server, a young French woman, led us to a table on the covered patio. We ordered the local brews on tap, and the kahlua pork plates. For an additional $1.50 I substituted a fresh and tasty salad from local organic greens while my husband had the traditional Hawaiian side dish, macaroni salad. It was the best kahlua pork we had had in a long time: juicy, flavorful without being salty, served with cooked cabbage and a scoop of sticky rice. All was served on a leaf-shaped, divided wooden plate, with a pineapple garnish and piece of haupia, a gelatinous coconut treat usually served at luaus. Making the meal even more perfect was the musical entertainment by the Hula Honeys, a talented trio who soulfully performed old standards and Hawaiian tunes. We were tempted to linger but had a long drive back to the beach and reluctantly departed.

We went here on the way to Hana. The food was extremely delicious, and the price was reasonable as well. Loved the restaurant decor. Would definitely recommend...

We found this to be a great little find - the food and service were excellent. The price was just right for us. My wife and I loved the music. Rick Scheideman provided the best atmospher for the place. He has a wide range of songs and a meloy singing voice that did not overtake our conversation. The owner of the resturant came out to make sure everything was going ok for us. Go on Saturday and have a great meal and listen to some good music.
