We stayed at the neighboring Days Inn Maui Oceanfront, so of course we found ourselves here. With packed days ahead, it's best practice to eat a good breakfast nearby lest you end up looking too long. Sarento's looked nice from the outside, but the view...More

Was recommended by a local as a good happy hour place. It was very nice, but not as good as some others. HH is in the bar only, quite drafty the day we were there. Good but there are better.

Service great; setting right on the beach outstanding; food was good. We visited this same restaurant 20 years ago (different owner then) but the location & setting & value can’t be beat in south Maui!

I did not see turkey on their menu, but Christmas may be an exception. You can ask them directly on their website.
