A word from Honu Seafood and Pizza - Lahaina
Chef Mark and Judy Ellman have opened a seafood shack, right next door to Mala Ocean Tavern. Honu Seafood and Pizza also sits right on the rocks of the Pacific Ocean, with 50 beers, an organic and eclectic wine list, and an extensive scotch and rum selection. Mark and Judy have created an environment that soothes the savage beasts craving of oysters on the half shell, steamed clams and mussels, Crab Louis salad, a selection of Hawaiian seafood, as well as fish from the West and East Coasts of the US. Honu also features a 900 degree brick-oven turning out artisinal pizzas. Come to Honu, drink a local Micro-brewed beer ,eat some freshly shucked oysters on the half shell, and let your eyes and soul relax into the Pacific. Honu, like Mala, is run by Mark and Judy Ellman and their two daughters Ariana and Michelle. Remember, we always try and practice Aloha. Please come and practice with us.

Aloha.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Discovered both Honu and sister restaurant, Mala, on past trip to Maui. Return here ever since for the great food. Good options for vegetarian diners. Service is always friendly, low key and attentive. Food is flavorful and creative. Local, fresh and consistent. Had an oceanside table this evening which was romantic and relaxing. Have recommended to family and friends, and will be back!"

  • "Beautiful location. Excellent brick oven pizza and oysters! Very pricey."
    Dined on 8/22/2014
  • "You pay for the Oceanside seating (if lucky enough to get a table) overpriced mediocre food, extremely noisy and cramped tables. Would not go back. The waitress was pleasant..."

  • "One if our favorite dining experiences in Maui. Beautiful setting ( like its sister Ma La). Everything we had was excellent, including sausage pizza, fresh mongchong, ahi bolognese. Will definitely return again."
    Dined on 8/20/2014
  • "Its sister restaurant, Mala, has long been one of our favorite Maui restaurants but we're hooked on Honu now. Although every table was filled, our server Suzanne never let us feel forgotten or ignored, her descriptions of the drinks and food were spot-on and she did it with a great sense of humor. Our food was served piping hot and it was delicious. Sorry for the short review, but just thinking about it has me wanting to make my next reservation."

  • "We were seated at a table to watch sunset. There were no fans in the restaurant and it was very hot. I was sweating during my meal. The food was good. If you like to watch sunsets I recommend another restaurant. Come here after the sunset when it's cooler"

  • "For something so casual as pizza, ended up being really tasty. We oredered the ahi sausage pizza, which sounded a little odd at first, but turned out to be wonderful, tender and not spicy. The fish and chips were wonderful - especially for someone who doesn't usually order fried food. Batter was light and crispy and fish soft and tender. The "chips" were a combination of potato and sweet potato fries - perfect balance. Service was wonderful and accommodating with 2 toddlers. Views were amazing, can't get any better than this. Can't wait to come back."

  • "We ate here second night on Maui. Kids had the pizza, which, though overpriced (as expected) was good and both enjoyed. I had the burger-$19 for a burger is ridiculous (yes, I know it was Kobe), but it was pretty darn good. My fine had the Ahi bruschetta appetizer, which she absolutely loved, and the romaine salad,which she also liked. Beautiful spot right on the water. Nice little by the glass wine list-reasonably priced."

  • "My husband and I chose Honu for our first date night, in two years!! Not having been out since the kids were born, we were hoping for a great night. Our night ended up being nearly perfect. The food was simply amazing, the drinks were delightful, the service fantastic and the ambience romantic. Try the octopus appetizer and the Ahi entree. YUM!!! Thank you Honu! We've added you to our favorites list."

  • "restaurant was good but could not accommodate us on a oceanfront table even though we got there over 1 hour prior to our reservation time to specifically request an oceanfront view. Also they were out of pizzas that night, which is one of the reasons we chose the restaurant in the first place."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "Great food,,great service...we have been to Mala as well and both are fabulous...the ahi bruschetta was worth it as well as the grilled octopus..it melted in your mouth..amazing food!!!"

  • "Had my birthday dinner here. The staff went out of their way to make it special...nice table, very knowledgeable server, food options great, priced affordable to expensive (since my BD I chose the house special that night - Monchong prepared perfectly and my husband had the Crab Louie, also prepared perfectly). We started with a gift from the owner and staff of their signature Ahi bruschetta, then had to try the fresh special salad that night- a Barolo with greens and tomatoes. Top this all off with great wine and the house French Macarons (dessert a gift again and served with a candle and staff signing happy birthday). Now this is a special birthday, I'll remember. Mahalo to the team at Honu."

  • "Anyone staying near Lahaina needs to come to Honu for a sunset dinner. The ahi bruschetta is "a must". The special fresh fish is great but you can never go wrong with the seafood pasta! Great kids menu including fish and chips & pizza."

  • "This is the restaurant you always want to take your guests to impress with the food and views and also being casual. Never have had a bad meal!"
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "Honu is one of a pair of oceanside eateries on Lahaina's Front Street that command regular attendance. The couple at the next table came there directly from the airport, suitcases still in the car. The food is considered exceptional by locals and vacationers alike. We had riblets, oysters and ahi sashimi from the starters menu, and all were terrific. So much so that we passed on the entree menu, where prices seemed higher than those published online. It isn't cheap at Honu (but not much is on Maui's West Side), but there's value in the quality of the experience."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "The cook does not know to make a pizza margherita even if the name of the restaurant includes the word ""Pizza". Not only it did not like a genuine Neopolitan pizza with thin crust, but also did not taste like one. I doubt the cook has ever tasted a real pizza margherita the way they make in Naples. It is a shame, it would have been a beautiful dining experience otherwise."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Love this restaurant - try to get here every couple of weeks - we have never had a bad meal or even an average one - this time we had ahi sausage pizza, the burrata appetizer, and the asparagus and shrimp plate - for desert the macaroons and they were fabulous - good service, good food, good wine - what more could we ask"
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "Honu is a wonderful restaurant, a local treasure, with great food and friendly, attentive service. The fish tacos and pizza are very good. Their daily fish dinner was prepared with lemon, capers and buerre blanc sauce- delicious! The location is great. They now have complimentary valet parking, which is nice. The view is outstanding - it is located right on the water with turtles swimming outside. We highly recommend Honu! Practice Aloha!"

  • "We ate at Honu on our last night in Maui and we loved the food! The service was impeccable from the hostesses to the server and the overall experience was great. I would definitely recommend Honu to everyone - you won't be disappointed!"

  • "We got a prime oceanfront table at 6:30 so we enjoyed a beautiful sunset. The staff opened the shades and lit torches when the glare went down. Bustling atmosphere, very friendly service. Liked the diverse menu. Portions were very generous (esp the seafood pasta!). Will definitely return!"
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Wonderful food, incredible service, fantastic scenery! This is a foodie's dream--and great for those of us who just love a delicious dining experience. We tried the special cocktails, the oysters, the Ahi bruchetta and the WHOLE FISH special. It was tremendous! We even bought gift certificates for a honeymoon couple coming to Maui soon. Well worth your time and money to visit Honu!!"

  • "Monica our server was outstanding! Very knowledgable and friendly. The whole fried snapper is the most pristine ingredient the local waters offer. Don't concern yourself with the price. Well worth it!"

  • "Mark Ellman's Mala Ocean Tavern restaurant is right next door to Honu. If you have been to Mala, you might have noticed that a few of the items on the menu are also on the Honu menu. That's a good thing because these items, especially the ahi bruschetta, are fabulous. This was the first time I dined at Honu and it excellent. We had ocean front seating, it was a beautiful day with the trade winds gently blowing. Our server was super friendly and efficient. We were a party of four and ordered the ahi bruschetta (2), fresh catch of the day sandwich (2), tuna tatami appetizer, grilled octopus appetizer. The fries that came with the sandwiches were crisp and delicious and included sweet potato fries as well. It was the perfect lunch."

  • "Excellent food, expensive, but then if you get the dining cards at Costco, it helps defray the expense. Excellent wine list with across the board pricing from the $20's on up. Corkage fee is $25. The servings are ample and some very unique, the Louie crab salad is very different, but is outstanding and a meal in itself and the dressing is a real Louie dressing, not a hybrid Thousand Island dressing. Highly recommended along with reservations."

  • "Food was good and our service was excellent. The menu prices are high for the overall experience. We enjoyed the restaurant, but it is not worth a second trip for us."

  • "Beautiful view! Start with the fried garbanzos then move to the Hibiscus Martini. Lifeguard Ahi was delicious and my son loved the Dungeness crab Mac n cheese. Loved the local flavor. The service is excellent-- our waitress made excellent recommendations."

  • "Service and atmosphere was great, but food was just okay. This place is a bit overhyped, but a nice spot with a romantic view if you want to get out of touristy Front St in Lahaina town."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "We've been to the sister restaurant next door Ma'La and always had a good meal. Decided to try this place and the experience is the same. All around very good and definitely one of the better spots on Maui. If you love fresh seafood and dining on the water front there is not much to say. Selections for kids also available and deserts are great too."

  • "Service was slow and the food, although served visa via a beautiful presentation, was okay."

  • "Wonderful restaurant that we have been enjoying for years. Beautiful ocean view is peaceful, with sailboats and sunset cruises in the distance and the sound of waves lapping up against the shoreline. West-facing orientation for a gorgeous view. Amazing sunset pictures. Kids can leave the dinner table and safely sit by the water to watch all the turtles. Oysters were superb. Clam chowder is unique with clams served in the shell accompanied by bacon chunks. Great children's menu. Fire roasted pizza crust gets two-thumbs up. Honu is located away from the hustle of central Front Street. This restaurant is wonderful in the late afternoon (2-4) for a great appetizer menu, drink specials and fewer patrons."

  • "We went to Honu Seafood and Pizza for the first time for lunch and really glad we did. First of all, the inside is very bright and comfortable and our table was just inside by the ocean which was so nice. You can also eat outside if you want to if available. I ordered a salad and fresh fish which were both fresh and very tasty with lots of vegetables surrounding my fish in a light sauce. My husband's meal was also very flavorful and we were very glad we stopped here for the first time and would definitely recommend to everyone to try."
