Located in the Makena Beach & Golf Resort, This restaurant has a seafood buffet every Friday's that we tried. We arrived just before sunset and viewed it, along with the islands of Ka'ho'olawe and Molokini. Their seafood buffet was pretty decent with crab legs/claws, shrimp, poke, raw oysters, sashimi (Marlin), different types of fish served different kinds of ways (baked,steamed,... More

Solid choice for a good seafood buffet. Good selection of fresh fish, poke, salads, cheeses, and wonderful soups. Dessert display was impressive, but after all the "good" stuff hard to save room. TIP: grab a drink at the bar before hand and save 15% on the buffet.

We recommend booking the Romantic Dinner Package - a nice three course dinner that includes a complimentary glass of champaign. (You can get this at a big discount if you book it when you reserve your room at the resort.)

Don't be fooled by the 'bar and grille' label. This kitchen is flexing some culinary muscle behind the scenes and the staff is laid back, knowledgeable and professional. We reserved our table and found ourselves overlooking the small bay and Molokini Crater in the distance. The view was terrific. The server was attentive and after a bit of questioning, gave... More

Located in the Makena Beach and Golf Resort, this restaurant is configured in a semi-circle on the second level of the hotel with all tables having a commanding view of the ocean. It is a wonderful place to celebrate a spectacular sunset. The staff are relaxed, friendly and helpful. The only downside to this impressive environment, on the evening of... More

It is expensive, but the food was great. If you are vegetarian ask for a vegetarian pasta! It is awesome :)

My 7 year old & I loved the food here. It was inspired & delicious. We ate 2 out of our 3 nights here & that was only because it was completely booked one night. Be sure to make a reservation. Despite it being very high end food, the prices are reasonable & the atmosphere is very mellow.
