At the bottom of the road from the volcano sits this solid restaurant with a great view. The service is good and the food very good, but it is pretty expensive.

The service is slow and the host kind of snotty. They put our pizza order in and it didn't get made but the rest of the lunch did...the waitress informed us they had just fired the pizza and when asked why half the table was being served their lunch her answer was, "because the pizza kitchen and the other kitchen don't communicate with each other". Having been a waitress for many years I happen to know it's quite possible for the waitress to tell the other kitchen to hold up on an item when there's a snafu so that everyone will be served at the same time. Anyway because they tried to rush the pizza then it wasn't quite cooked and was soggy and tasteless. I've been here before and have never been all that impressed so that I've given them enough chances and I think maybe my visits to Kula lodge will forever after be limited to the very fine gift and craft market and art studio located on the same grounds. Go for those and the view and save your food dollars for someplace else

tasty food and a beautiful view - almost feels like an Alpine lodge. A little pricey, but most good things on Maui are.

Discovered by accident while driving through Kula. The restaurant is in an old private home with million dollar views. The day we had lunch, a fire was blazing in the old stone fireplace. We were late, after the noon hour rush so got a table at the window. I had an intense delicious glass of red wine, recommended by the server. The bowl of carrot curry ginger soup was exactly the right color, taste and consistency. Beautiful greens accompanied my puff pastry filled with spinach and feta. Outside dining is available on a delightful terraced brick and stone patio surrounding a wood burning pizza oven. The pizzas we saw go by looked incredible. Beautiful gardens and tree shaded parking.
