5 Palms is an open-air, ocean front restaurant, nestled at the base of the Mana Kai Resort on Keawakapu Beach. We offer breakfast and lunch, daily from 8:00am to 2:30pm, focusing on unique twists to classic breakfast & lunch favorites. Dinner is served nightly from 5:00pm to 9:00pm and focuses on the bounty of fresh fish and locally grown vegetables that are available year round on Maui. We also offer one of the best Happy Hours on the South Side of the Island from 3:00pm to 7:00pm daily. Happy Hour features great drink specials, and half-priced pupus and Sushi.

Diner Reviews
  • "Amazing place to watch a spectacular sunset, have dinner, drinks, and great conversation. Celebrated my brother/sister in law's anniversary there while we were on Kihei. Our waiter was very attentive and the food was delicious! I ordered the Opa cooked tropical style which came atop some miniature hash browns/spinach. I also ordered a Pineapple Brûlée for dessert ...... OMG! Such wonderful flavor! The presentation of this heavenly treat was set in a small round of pineapple shell and filled in with the creme brûlée. My husband and sister in law ordered the Lilikoi Cheesecake, which was just as delicious!"

  • "From the kids to the adults, everyone in my party of 6 loved their dinner & drinks. We were seated a little further in the restaurant, but still had a great view of the sunset. Our server was great with the kids (8 & 6), and described the meals perfectly. The portions are generous, for both the main course and appetizers. I would highly suggest the Fish Trio, if it's on the menu,.. delicious!"

  • "Nice beachfront setting, a pretty restuarant attached to a rather tacky hotel, a lovely porch and attentive service, but large, noisy family groups and a lot of kids, so not quite the peaceful, romantic evening we were after! Food was good, if a little too fussy, fresh and tasty. Large portions. Two appetizers was a good meal. maybe eating later would have been better. Teak chairs were not very comfortable to conducive to lingering over wine."

  • "The atmosphere, setting, and food at Five Palms is AMAZING! One of the best meals on our whole trip! We really enjoyed our time here!"

  • "The view here is gorgeous. Our waiter had a great sense of humor. The portions are very large but the taste was lacking in every dish. I ordered the lobster roll and only ate part of the roll. The lobster was very fishy. The onion rings were heavily breaded but decent. The boys got the prime rib sandwich and the meat didn't look like prime rib. We were puzzled when we arrived at his empty the place was. But after the food arrived we realized that everyone else knows the food isn't worth eating."

  • "Both 5 Palms and Sarentos next door offer amazing sunset views on the most idyllic beach on Maui. Both the mahi mahi and passion fruit cheesecake were delectable. Our waiter was personable and attentive. Other than a price mismatch for the Sunset Special (website $29.99, restaurant $38) we had a flawless dinner."

  • "There were 8 of us and the setting was perfect. We sat outside in the patio and the sunset was awesome. We were greeted by Ken (manager) and our server was Zac (must ask for him) the service was exceptional, Luke (manager) also came by later in the evening and asked if everything was fine. I had the fish special which had a Hamachi, crab cake and shrimp, it was cooked perfect. We have made it one of our favorite places to go."

  • "I traveled solo to Maui after a meeting in Honolulu for a couple days of downtime. The concierge at the marriott suggested dinner here. Outdoor dining had the most beautiful sunset views. Service was outstanding and attentive as I was dining alone. Sushi fresh and delicious as well as the fresh fish selections. The experience was one that prompted me to go back the second night. I travel weekly for business and do eat in top restaurants and this was one that will remain top on my list. Appetizers are large and should be shared."

  • "We have been going to the Five Palms for 10 years now and it remains one of our favorite restaurants on Maui! Food is always fantastic, great outdoor door dining with views of the sunset and very relaxing. We will be back next time we're in Maui!"

  • "Mahi was very thin, small, over cooked, tough and dry. We asked for a different one. The second try was just as disappointing. It was less dry, but tough and over cooked. And really small!"

  • "We had not been to Five Palms for many years, not sure why! We had a very enjoyable evening, made more so by our wonderful server, Roy. The ribs were amazing. The setting is beautiful. We sat outside and it was very quiet and peaceful as we had a later reservation. Very leisurely. We will definitely make this a stop on our annual visits to Maui!"

  • "We ate at 5 Palms our last night in Maui, followed by breakfast the next morning before we went to the airport. Both meals were wonderful ways to say farewell to a week in paradise. Other reviews had mentioned poor service. This was NOT THE CASE FOR US. Very attentive and friendly servers both meals. The location on the beach can't be beat; we love the outdoor patio, but even the inside dining has wide open windows for sunset viewing. As is everything in Maui, it is expensive; but we took advantage of a 20% discount coupon we found in a travel guide brochure. The restaurant also offers 15-20% discounts for those who stay in nearby hotels or condos. We have dined here every time we come to Maui and always look forward to it."

  • "Disappointing! My food was served cold after an extreme wait. After requesting to have it warmed up, I was served a second plate of cold food. Our waitress was overwhelmed with too many tables."

  • "My husband and I enjoyed salads which were very fresh and delicious. Wish they had more than one fish at lunch. Mahi everything. Cooked perfectly, however would have liked opah, Ono, or any Hawaiian fish that I can't find frozen at home. Still a great option for lunch with a great view."
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "Outdoor dining with great sunset view. Ordered a pomegranate mojito and had to send it back due to lack of flavor. Bread arrived late, when first course was served. Wife's mahi mahi was dry, my snapper was adequate. Dessert cheesecake was very good. Overall, the food could be better for the prices; service needs to improve. Have been going here for several years and it seems to have slipped a bit."

  • "Great food, we had the special 3 course meal for $37 and could barely eat everything. This is a lovely beach setting and one of the more special places to sit and have a quiet meal and watch the sun go down. We took our baby and that worked out fine. The waiter was very attentive"

  • "We had heard such great things about five palms and was reccomended to us by a family member that we were excited to check it out. Unfortunately it was not everything we thought it was going to be. The setting is beautiful and the food was tasty but the service ruined our experience. With the price point where their food is you would expect exceptional service, which was not the case. We could never find our server, he took forever to bring things out, or sometimes he wouldn't bring out what we asked at all. A perfect example, I asked for the wine list and when our server returned without one. When I asked about it again he told me he would just tell me. We had a group of 4 and by the end of our dinner each one of us was frustrated."

  • "Food - Fair to good, but expensive - Very scenic views - Service was terrible (believe that they were not anticipating the size of crowd they had for Dinner)"

  • "My sis and I went there for dinner on our last night in Maui. Our server, Brian, was attentive and entertaining. The Pappadelle pasta with prawns was amazing and delicious. Bread was nothing special but the wasabi hummus was interesting. The dessert consisted of three pieces of decadent pastries. Can't wait to try it for lunch - since we always stay at the Mana Kai when visiting Maui. "

  • "It was a brunch so the servers only had to take our order and give us drinks. We were passed by for the first 20 minutes just to get water because we were thirsty. Then, we finally got water but the guy only filled 1 glass. Then, we finally got service because a guy from the next table pointed us out directly to his waitstaff (what would it look like if she ignored us then). Paid $50 / meal for a Mother's Day brunch and it was the worst experience ever. I don't know that I'll ever be back. The first time there just a couple of weeks ago, the service was also very poor. I gave it another shot, they still failed to even meet the mediocre service category. If you don't mind just sitting looking at the view - it's the perfect place."

  • "We had the best experience here. Made reservations via Opentable an hour before our arrival. There was a line of people waiting to be seated without reservations. We were taken immediately to -I believe the best table- the manager came over to talk with us twice through the meal, our waitress was very attentive and gave suggestions with my wheat allergy as to options on the meal. The atmosphere was soothing while watching the waves on the water. This a also a great place to see the sunset. It was a great night. "

  • "Just celebrated my husband's 70th birthday at Five Palms. Service couldn't have been better. Attentive yet not overbearing. We were having a leisurely meal; never felt rushed, and food arrived when we were ready--and just off the grill. I'd contacted the restaurant in advance, and they gave us the best table with view of ocean. Food was great-my husband's fish was perfectly grilled and generous portions. I will be a repeat customer!"

We were offered complimentary glasses of champagne to celebrate the occasion, and our meals came promptly and were fresh and delicious."

  • "We have been going to Five Palms each time we come to Maui spanning about 20 years. It is a lovely beach spot with great food! Memorable Creme Brûlée in pineapple. I have to have it every time!!! They have friendly efficient servers and a creative chef. Very fresh fish. We have enjoyed both lunch and dinner there. We will come back. Both to Maui and to Five Palms."

  • "We had a table for 5. My wife asked the waiter if the spare ribs were beef or pork and he said beef, so she ordered them-they were pork! She does not eat pork. I asked for my fish to be well done -dry-and it arrived completely underdone for my taste. By the time they had fixed this all the rest of the party had finished their meals and I had "gone past it". It ruined what was supposed to be a special evening with my wife's brother and sister-in-law and mother before they flew back to Australia. 5 palms had always been excellent for breakfast and lunch before but it was the first time we had gone for dinner-and we won't go back for dinner again. They took our meals off the bill but that really wasn't the point......"

  • "3 of us thoroughly enjoyed the service and ambiance at this waterside restaurant recommended by a local. The trio of fish on the menu was terrific but the ribs were served lukewarm and overpowered by the sauce. However inventive drinks , friendly service and a lovely setting all contributed to a happy evening."
