Honu Seafood and Pizza
Great Findsomewhat off the beaten path but worth finding. Phenomenal food, great service, wonderful sunset of Lahaina harbor.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently five starI have dined several times at Honu since it originally opened. The food is always excellent, professionally served. The servers are professiional and stable. Always I am welcomed warmly by the hostess(es) and the people on the floor. The view from most tables is breathtaking and even though the restaurant constantly busy I never feel rushed when dining. I have been able to recommend Honu to many vistors as I am in the retail business. Whatever meal I selected is always at the proper temperature and beautifully presented. Seafood dishes are a specialty and always fresh. I have been there for special occasions, with groups of people and shared a wonderful romantic interlude. Top dining and a warming experience. Thank you Honu.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMNew favorite Maui restaurant!Incredible food, wonderful service and breathtaking view! The only challenge was deciding what to eat...the options are so varied and enticing. There are many awesome restaurants in Maui, but Honu is now on our "must visit" list.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food and Service!Had a wonderful lunch outside overlooking the water. Even saw a few turtles! I had the bay shrimp sandwich which came in some delicious toasted bread, and with lots of fries and sweet potato fries, and cole slaw. Husband had the fish and chips--also yummy. Service was attentive without being annoying. A bit pricey, but this is Maui. I don't mind paying the higher prices if the food is good, and this was great! Parking is a bit difficult, but there is a small lot to the left of the restaurant. Mala is right next door, and also very good.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWow!!!We loved this place so much that we ate there 3 out of 8 nights on Maui.
The food is excellent with a very interesting menu filled with lots of
choices. Service was wonderful and the view.....beyond words other than to
say "spectacular" sunsets. Ask for an ocean front table on the patio. It's worth the
wait at the very friendly bar. This is a restaurant not to be missed in Lahaina, Maui.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful DinnerWe enjoyed our dinner - the food, the ambiance, the service all were wonderful. The menu is varied and their is something for everyone. The ahi bruschetta are fabulous. You really have a view of the water from all of the tables. We will return the next time we are in Maui.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and viewBartenders were very nice and enjoyablel, the Mojito is outstanding. View is incredible, worth the wait for an ocean-front table.
Food was great, the Octopus and burrata appetizers were very well done and the Pizza was excellent. The crust had great flavor and texture and the toppings were well done also. This is up there with some of the best new Italian hotspots in LA.
Unfortunately, however, our server was terrible. She seemed only concerned with shuffling is in and out as fast as possible. We noticed the same attitude in the hostess as well, when she notified us at the bar that our table was ready she practically grabbed my drink out of my hand, she wanted us to sit down ASAP! I could barely even close my bar tab.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall Awesome!!!Everything was outstanding!! Great gluten free options!5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMWe Love Honu!Honu is our favorite place to go for lunch or dinner on the Westside. We take friends and family there and the food is always delicious. The kale salad for me - the Fish and Chips for my husband (of course). The Dori style fish and a salad is great to share with a girlfriend. Honu is not only a wonderful location - it can be a special lunch and special dinner place. The food is extraordinary and you are always taken care of with professional service and warmth. I have gone there many times with my husband and recently enjoyed a dinner out with a girlfriend and we had a delightful time for dinner.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful view and fresh seafood!Enjoyed a wonderful lunch at this little gem of a place! I had the fresh Ipswich Fried Clam Sandwich. I come from New England, so I am picky about seafood! The clams were tender with whole bellies and accompanied by a huge mound of regular & sweet potato fries! YUMMY!! The view was amazing with our table right on the wall separating the restaurant and stone shore. The staff was friendly and attentive. We particularly enjoyed a server named, Alex. He took our picture and told us about the surrounding area and when the turtles visit the neighboring beach. A wonderful afternoon!!5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMRead about this restaurantRead about this restaurant in a local guide. The outside appearance does not reflect the food, service or the sunset views. Went here during our visit to Maui on our 10th anniversary and requested a table with a view - arrived an hour earlier than our reservation but were immediately seated at an oceanside table for two. Waitress, although young, was informed and provided great suggestions. Would highly recommend.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasant Maui surpriseWe were quite surprised at how much we enjoyed Honu. Exterior run down. Interior eclectic. Tables too close together. But beach location is incredible. Try and get table by water. Mostly two tops by water. Food was excellent. Service friendly and knowledgable. Try the ahi poke. Some of the best we have had on island. Menu has something for everyone multiple price points. We plan to go back.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMhad dinner with my fiancéhad dinner with my fiancé on our last night in Maui. what a great experience overall. wonderful service, fantastic food & a beautiful view. we shared the ahi poke and kale salad. poke was light & delicious. he had the crab mac & cheese with truffle oil, which was AMAZING!!! I had the Ahi Lifeguard, which was wonderful. service was great. if you are lucky enough to sit outside by the water, the sunset will take your breath away.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMNever disappoints. Love theNever disappoints. Love the Lamb Riblets appetizer and they have a nice wine by the glass choice. Sitting right by the waters edge makes for wonderful sunset dining experience.
We are fortunate to spend several months during the year on Maui and Honu's is a frequent dining choice for us4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have eaten at Mala andWe have eaten at Mala and decided to try Honu. It exceeded our expectations in every way. We will be back. You can't find more fresh seafood here on Maui.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMHonu seafood & pizza !I have no complaints about Honu. Everything about it was perfect. All the food was fresh and delicious. No matter what you choose to get, Pu are in for a treat! It was so delicious we chose to get dessert :) very beautiful view of the ocean if you decide to sit outside. Service was great, even when slammed busy. It's a bit pricier than most resturaunts, but most well worth or. You get what you pay for! I will definately go back!4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect little gem on the waterHonu Seafood and Pizza is a gem we found last minute. We were surprised we were able to get in so quickly on a wkd night. Service was amazing as our waiter clearly knew the menu from top to bottom with great wine suggestions. The view directly on the water makes for a truly unforgettable experience. It was so perfect because we really were craving seafood and pizza that night. We got oysters that were delicious and one of the pizzas with the perfect light crispy crust accompanied by an amazing salad. Highly recommend you give it a try.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMalways a good experienceto start with our server was fantastic and the bussers are on it.I was never in need of anything. We got a table on the water -Perfect night. I had a drink at the bar while waiting. It was strong but I like that and the price was good. Good bartenders too.
We ordered a kale sprout salad that was so simple yet super yummy. crisp with a sesame soy dressing. Got the Poke appetizer as my entree. My husband ordered the margarita pizza. It was a good size. Very tasty and well prepared. Its a much better pizza and price than
fleetwoods by the way. We shared the gado gado salad which is big and filling. It has quinoa vegetables and a killer peanut dressing. so good. Always a good experience. I live in Maui and lots of locals eat here.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food, View and ServiceI guess it was our lucky day. We had an ocean front table for two with waves lapping just a few feet from us. We started with couple of island drinks while waiting for our starter that we split, Spanish Octopus, sautéed in oil and garlic with edamame hummus. It was tender and flavorful. We proceed to experience their kale salad with dates, pomegranate, walnuts, pecorino dressed with preserved lemon vinaigrette. What a burst of flavors! We both opted for the half Wok fried salt and pepper Dungeness crab accompanied by quinoa and vegetable medley of green beans, asparagus, Brussels sprouts. The cab took a lot of work, but it was well worth it. The accompaniments were perfect. We enjoyed a half bottle of Cake Bread chardonnay with our e4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMHonua is now my favorite restaurantHonua is now my favorite restaurant on Maui!

It is a gem and must do for all!!!4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMI have never been disappointedI have never been disappointed at a Mark Ellman restaurant. Honu has always been a great experience. Wonderful draft beer selection. Be sure to schedule you reservation in advance.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother incredible dinnerAnother incredible dinner at Honu. From the amazing sunset to the delicious food - we love this place! Next time, we are going to order 2 first courses and split the really large entrée!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat time and great foodWe enjoyed dinner there. We arrived a little early and the staff sat us pretty quickly. The cocktail sauce for the jumbo shrimp was excellent and I thought about using a spoon to just eat the sauce. My wife and I had salads and pizza (the mushroom pizza and the pepperoni) through the suggestion of the waitress, and we could not have been happier. Great suggestion and the pizza was excellent. This place is very kid friendly and our daughter was kept entertained with the crayons and Crabby (the crab toy given when we entered the restaurant). May daughter had the kikWe also loved the beer and wine list and were happy with the selection. We will definitely eat here again on our next trip to Maui!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMFinally, food as good as the view!Great service (we ate there twice on one trip)---the food is thoughtfully prepared and portion size is perfect. A refreshing change from the usual West Maui fare---the food is REALLY good.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was awesome and seatingThe food was awesome and seating acceptable. It was a little noisy, but the place was very busy. I would recommend later night dining. We ate at 6 p.m. Next time we'll probably do 8.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMMade us feel welcome and specialMade us feel welcome and special as soon as we arrived. Though many were waiting we were welcomed and shown to our table at water's edge. A little windy that evening but staff and food were great. Would highly recommend over most restaurants int he area.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were seated at an oceansideWe were seated at an oceanside table for two during what would have been sunset.....but there was no sunset over Lanai. However, the cloud colors were SPECTACULAR and constantly changing. Picture taking of the colorful sky with the boat action in the harbor was the name of the game by many of the diners. The food was excellent. The servers were cheery, available and very responsive. The prices were a little high but this is Hawaii! Honu is now one of our favorite eateries on Maui and will be on our restaurant rotation list every time we come here from now on.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food! The restaurantExcellent food! The restaurant came highly recommended and it did not disappoint. Loved the ahi bruschetta!3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMAll around, great!Unlike many other Maui restaurants who believe that simply having servers present in a restaurant constitutes "giving service," Honu actually gets it. Very attentive service, delicious food, and a great view of the ocean. What's not to like? Everyone was extremely pleasant. I wish we had encountered more of this during our stay at other restaurants.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMI haven't had a chance toI haven't had a chance to try Honu for long time. Such a wonderful spot !!! Great location & great taste at Honu. Love it.... Definitely, we would like to go back to Honu. I was a big fun of Mala for long time, now I really like both of them.

Have already made reservations to go back next week. Would highly recommend this place.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFor anyone visiting Maui,For anyone visiting Maui, I recommend this place for the absolute most breathtaking view of sunset (and for the amazing food too, of course). For my job, I often recommend and make reservations for my guests and I have to say Honu is the one I book almost nightly! Its so easy to recommend a place to guests that I personally love to go to myself.
Most recently, I brought a friend in and we shared the Ahi Bruschetta, Rock Shrimp & Asaparagus Ala Plancha, Tomato Burrata, Brussels Sprouts Au Gratin and topped it off with the Chocolate Torte. As always, everything was delicious. We come here often so we knew exactly what we wanted that night and we were completely satisfied with our selections!3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMLove those ocean views!

The fried garbanzo beans are a great starter, and the variety of appetizers is endless, and changes with our every visit.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time dining here sinceFirst time dining here since we usually go to Mala.
