“Like the happy hour patio better than the formal restaurant.”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

We made reservations at 5:00 PM in the formal restaurant. Our intent was to have a relaxing meal and enjoy the sunset. Our waiter, however, had a different plan for our evening. He clearly wanted us to eat and leave so that he could
seat other customers at our table. It was difficult to relax with him trying to rush us. My wife and I shared the Maui Maui and it was delicious. We did not care for the Poke Tacos....probably our fault because we didn't realize that the fish was raw.

The next day we went to the happy hour which is on the patio terrace. We had a wonderful time. The atmosphere was relaxing and the music was great. We ordered the Crabby Mikes for an app appetizer and it was delicious. Bottom line, we will go back for happy hour but we will not go back to the restaurant.

“Loud”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

Food and prices were fine but it was not a relaxed dinner. It was so full you could barely get into your chair. One meter left of us there was a very loud conversation and one meter behind us two kids continuously screaming their lungs out. it was 18:00, maybe later is better.

“Love Leilani's”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

We ate at Leilani's several times both in the bar and the restaurant during our recent stay on Maui. Food and service was excellent every time. Also, prices are very reasonable.
Try the fish tacos, they are fab.
Oh, and let's not forget the location on the beach with amazing views.
Enjoyed a few happy hours with great cocktails made by Sheena and excellent beer recommendations from Danny.

“A nice place to have lunch”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

This is located in Whaler's Village which was just a short shuttle ride from our condo. Lunch was good. My daughter had a grilled cheese sandwich which had a delicious array of cheese including brie. She said it was very good. Don't forget the Hula Pie which you can get free with an entrée if you remember to take the coupon which is given to you upon arrival to the islands. Excellent!
