Although it was not crowded at 12 noon and we were seated immediately, the waiter didn't take our orders until 30 - 40 minutes later while he busied himself clearing other tables, taking their orders and then disappeared. For the delay, he apologized and we were comped one slice of pie to share five ways.

We loved this place! The atmosphere was fun and we sat outside both nights. We made reservations on opentable which I suggest as their was definitely a wait both times we can here. The food was fantastic especially the tacos and order your strawberry cream pie early as we were told they sell out almost every night. The first night by the time we were ready for dessert they were out and the second night it was amazing!!! Made fresh daily! Will definitely be back here if we ever make it back to Maui!

Please do not miss this restaurant. There are two on the island. We went to the one in Wailea twice. It was so good. We had a party of 9 so we had to make a reservation. They were incredible. Our waiter, Gil, was such a great guy and was on top of everything we needed. He is a great salesman! I had two Mai Tai's and that was all I needed. They pack a giant punch on top of being insanely good! The live music is great too. This is a must!

High energy restaurant that serves good food and drinks. All ingredients are locally sources. Fish was excellent as was the fresh pasta. Dessert pies were great. Restaurant is full of noise and energy that adds to the good atmosphere. Staff efficient and friendly
