Sarento's on the Beach was a fantastic part of our vacation in Maui. It is not cheap. This is definitely an upscale restaurant, but it does not disappoint. It is located in Kehei about 10 minutes from the Grand Wailea Resort. We went there on our 29th Wedding Anniversary during our trip. We went at about 6:15 for dinner. (Reservations are definitely needed.) At first we thought we would have trouble because the setting sun was directly in our faces. We had a table "up front". This means that the only thing between you and the ocean is a narrow strip of lawn and the beach. In about 10 minutes, the sun set behind a mountain and we were treated to a breathtaking view of the sunset in Maui. Many people, including us, got up and went out on the lawn and took pictures. The wine selection was terrific. The food was excellent. We had crab cake appetizers, a veal marsala dish, clams and linguini, and the special which was their version of "clam chowder". It was like a very rich mixture of clams, mussels, shrimp in a delicious white sauce with corn and mushrooms. The service was excellent. The desserts were fantastic. The atmosphere is comfortable yet very sophisticated and romantic. They had jazz playing while we were there. This was one of those rare occasions where dinner was an experience and a very pleasant one. For your one big night out during a stay in Maui, go to Sarento's on the Beach. You will love it!
