We love this place for lunch - actually went there twice on our last week long trip to Maui. On our first full day, it was Lunch at Leilani's that truly kicked off the vacation and put us on Island time. Cold beer, delicious burgers and fish sandwhiches. And right off the beach - so you can walk here from pretty much any hotel or condo in Ka'anapali. Highly recommended.

This restaurant is in a prime location, and has great atmosphere... however, it was very crowded and I was a little disappointed in their food. If youre looking for a place to watch the sunset over the ocean while you have dinner, this place it is... but I wouldnt go here just for the food alone.

We ate upstairs on Good Friday and had a wonderful time. Seated within 5 minutes of our reservation (they were extremely busy). Server was there quickly with water and bread (within 5 min). she explained the menu (5 specials) without hesitation and answered questions without hesitation (I hate when servers don't know their menu). My daughter is a little picky so they were very accommodating with making changes to the meal she wanted. Hubby had 1 of the fish specials (devoured it) and I had the filet (wonderful). The vegetables that came with the meals were crispy and flavorful (hate mushy vegetables). The Hula pie for dessert was huge and probably the best we had this trip. Our cocktails were a little high, but no more than what we found all over maui (except at happy hour). This was our best dining experience this trip, Mahalo

I guess that's to be expected when you go to these areas, but it was extremely crowded and the service took a while but she was nice. The food was okay. Small portions. If you go there, it's because you're going for drinks and people watching

We ate here for lunch twice during our stay. The Hula Pie is the signature dessert and its fabulous! We really enjoyed the fish tacos as well! Great view, and good food/value for kids and adults as well. Very diverse menu. If you eat here, you will get a free coupon for Hula Pie on your next visit!
