“Don't judge a book by its cover...”
Reviewed February 27, 2013 via mobile

We had heard positive things, but when we drive past, we were apprehensive. Very very unassuming and understated exterior. We relied on reviews and referrals, and we walked in without a reservation on a Monday night. We were very lucky and managed to get last table for two. The place was packed.

Our server (cannot recall her name unfortunately), was stellar - understated, efficient, very very helpful with recommendations. Ahi brushchetta and octopus appetizers were stellar and delicious. We shared the dore main course, which was lots for two and absurdly fabulous.

We could not have been more satisfied, the bill was very very reasonable (and we both had wine), and the busy atmosphere gave the evening a certain energy. The location is fabulous, overlooking the water. I cannot think of a less than complimentary thing to say, despite my desire to be objective.... We will repeat and recommend this restaurant without hesitation!!

“Fabulous view”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

We arrived at 5pm and got a table at the water's edge. GREAT view! Very relaxing just watching the boats bob on the water and the turtles poke their heads up/surf the small waves. We ordered the spanish octopus to share first. It was nice and very tender. Then we had the salt and pepper crab. Maybe just a tad overcooked but still nice. Our bill, which included four cocktails, was $165, including tip. Good service but you are sort of rushed out the door because it is very popular and there is always people needing a table.

“Delicious”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

We had lunch at Honu's and it was sooo good. We had a wonderful table by the water. I had a fabulous shrimp pizza and my husband had a wahoo sandwich. When we return to Maui, we will definitely return to Honu's. Service was great and we were not rushed. Try it!

“Friendly service, great food and dinner entertainment.”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

We had a great experience at Honu's each of the two times that we dined there. The waitresses were friendly and prompt. Being a sister restaurant to Mala’s next door, the food is very similar but what sets Honu apart is the pizza. Thin crust and a very creative list of toppings can’t be beat. We made reservations both times and were seated at the water’s edge where we were entertained by the sea turtles feasting on the algae on the rocks. The clam chowder and ahi bruschetta should be a top priority of the items to try. We will be back again.

“Felt we had to leave”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Met with friends who flew in from Oahu. We went early and ordered expensive wine by the glass($20ea) and appetizers. As soon as you put the fork down someone would come to take the plate away - not even remotely finished. Finished a glass of wine, glass gone. It felt like they wanted us to finish quickly and move on. It seemed pushy. Every time someone went by, something on the table would disappear. If I want to sit and relax, I won't go back there. So where is the 'aloha' they keep talking about?
