And what a view! Service could have been better, however the cocktails were great. The live music was fantastic. A little overcrowded, but, that was to be expected. I will go back again.

Dinner was excellent, fish tacos, hamburgs, mahi mahi. Service not so great, but the food was better than expected. Drinks were cold and the setting fabulous with the ocean 50 feet away.

Very nice Bar Bites. The Menu has changed since we visited, so there's no point in me recommending the best Pork Spring Rolls I've ever encountered! But everything we had was tasty and fresh, and sensibly priced too. Nice staff!

We checked out this place during the day and discovered reservations were necessary for the upstairs level, more upscale dining. The lower ground level is more casual, food and fare. A very limited menu, I had the appetizer crab cakes and the Maui salad for...More

This was our big meal to cap off the end of our time in Maui. Everything was excellent. Service, food and atmosphere left nothing to be desired. Our server was so helpful. And as promised, the Hula Pie was a win. Our large family group...More

Food was OK, the service and employees were really disinterested and not engaged from the check on. I realize this isn't a fine dining experience but certainly I expected more.

Had a nice visit in late evening. Service was excellent, food good but Two "small" fish tacos for $19.00 was ridiculous! Burger & fries reasonable and large. One of most popular restaurants in Whalers Village. Hula Pie was large and excellent. Definitely recommend!

Leilani's is one of our favorite spots for a casual lunch or dinner sitting right on the beach and watching the sunset with a great bar and fun casual atmosphere. The food is consistent and easy for a family.

Leilanis never disappoints, wonderful place to eat! There's a downstairs option for burgers or an upstairs for upscale dining, we always go for dinner upstairs for special occasions or everytime we get a visitor, Leilanis is a must!! Food and drinks are delicious!!

The restaurant is located in Whalers village. Currently Whalers village is undergoing renovation and I think many of the art galleries may be closed during renovation. If you go to LaHaina there are many great restaurants... More
