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
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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"

  • "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 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!"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "We had to wait about ten mintues for our reserved table. Our server was then very efficient but not overly friendly. We weren't fans of the small cramped and murky looking tank of lobsters by the door. This restaurant was very expensive although the food was nice, we all enjoyed our meals. Overall a good meal but not our favourite restaurant in Lahaina."

  • "Honu isn't a big place so even with a reservation we did have to wait about 20 minutes for that beautiful waterfront table. Island time right? Regardless, it was a fantastic experience. Service was great and the food was fantastic. Better than average beer & wine lists and unique signature cocktails made the evening even better."

  • "Simply put the best meal I have ever had on the islands. Been to All the islands and been coming for 20 years, got married in Maui 14 years ago and this was the best meal I have had. Octopus was amazing and the ahi bruschetta too. Even the affogato was excellent. Monchong done superbly. Chef Mark is fantastic. All there is to say."

  • "Do not judge the book by the cover~! I encourage anyone, anytime to walk into this restaurant for dinner and you will walk in too a spectacular place! Any seat in the place is golden! The wall along the ocean is not there......complete view of the ocean only inches away from your table. After you get over the view the waitress, Gerry will guide you to the perfect blend for a meal!!!!!! Let me be clear....trust her!!!! We had four of us and the food from appetizers, salads through the entrée were perfect blends! She knew we would be sharing our food around the table and she did a very, very good job blending our meals! It must be nice to work in the industry when the food coming out of the kitchen is so very, very good! "

  • "Honu Seafood and Pizza is a foodies delight! The entrees are very creative and artistically presented. We've eaten there many times on our trips to Maui and have never been disappointed. The selections are local and very fresh. We especially love their kale salad which is mixed with walnuts, pomegranate seeds, walnuts, sliced dates and goat cheese with a lemon infused vinagrette. Our son had the shrimp pizza, which was delicious. The sunset view from any table is great, but especially nice on the deck. You are right on the beach, as is the sister restaurant Mala Tavern, right next door. A real gem!"

So unfortunately we felt rushed, and some our main course was tepid by the time we 'dug' in... I would go again though especially for the shrimp appetizer, the mascarpone grits, and the peanut butter mousse cake ! "

  • "We went to Honu on our recent trip to Maui to celebrate my husbands birthday. The grilled spanish octopus appetizer was pretty darn good, but that was the only highlight. Entrees were the mahi mahi special and ahi sausage pizza. Mahi was decent and the pizza was a complete disaster. The waitress noticed that most of the pizza was still there and I let her know I didn't like it, but she didn't have anything to say and did not offer any replacement for the dish. On top of all that no one mentioned the birthday that was noted in the reservation. "
