A word from Ka'ana Kitchen at Andaz Maui
What we serve at Ka‘ana, we serve from the heart. We source from local farmers, ranchers, and fishermen. We only put on your plate what we feel is proper to serve. Our pairings speak to the ability to connect the elements of taste, smell, and touch with everything around us.
Our dishes are prepared using techniques from around the culinary world, but thought-out in accordance with our micro-climate. The way we prepare our fish, season our salads, and grill our meat depends not only on its origin, but what the weather tells us, how the swells on the ocean shape our mood, and how the land influences our feelings.
Here we hope to blur the lines between your kitchen and our restaurant, between what is external and what is internal. We invite you in, share our hopes, and create a unique dining experience that connects you to this place and its essence.

Diner Reviews
  • "The seating for dinner was predetermined so they would not allow us to move to another table. The menu isn't flexible. My lobster dish was excellent but my husband's tofu steak was average. Breakfast is excellent but $45 for the buffet. Worth it in my opinion."

  • "Beat our expectations by a mile. Food, service, service (I repeat myself) -- we were impressed."

  • "View is Great and hotel is gorgeous but menu super limited and not much variety yet"
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "Our outdoor table had a beautiful view of the ocean and sunset. We were presented with the menus that were arranged by "food source "rather than a more traditional type menu. I found it hard to follow and I was surprised that there was no type of white fish on the menu. Also, this restaurant seemed more expensive than comparable restaurants in the Wailea area. With this said, our food was delicious and the presentation was beautiful."

  • "Ka'ana Kitchen lived up to the excellent reviews. Outstanding array of flavors in each dish. Two of us shared 3 small plates. Despite not being a huge amount of food, the high quality ingredients and combination of flavors left us satisfied. The chocolate torte dessert was perfect for anyone who loves rich chocolate flavor without being too heavy. Service fantastic - attentive without hovering. Didn't go for breakfast but heard from another Andaz guest - it was the best breakfast he has ever eaten."

  • "Chicken dish is great as is the rib eye. We shared Lobster cerviche and pork belly starters. Both very good. Lex was our server and was terrific."

  • "We booked dinner for our family here, we were staying next door at Waikea Elua, so a nice 5 minute walk. Reviews were great, so expectations were high! It met or exceeded expectations! The ambience (cool modern), and wait staff (knowledgeable and enthusiastic) were great! But the menu was beyond great! It was so hard to choose, everything sounded delicious! The abalone risotto with onsen egg was a highlight. Also, the lobster and kakuni dish, the rib eye cap, the salads, everything was so fresh and well prepared! We went towards the end of our trip, so not enough time to go back. Can't wait until next time!"

  • "Went 3 times on a 10 day trip...stumbled upon the chefs table and had the 6 course meal...savored all the bites!"

  • "Local food and preparation simply outstanding. As was the service."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "Interesting concept. Menu is not layed out in the the traditional pupus, salads and entrees list. The menu offers a list of dishes to choose from, giving the diner the option of having them for appetizer or entree. My husband and I ordered 3 dishes and shared them all. The coconut cream pie was divine!"
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "Fantasic meal. Great, knowledgeable servers. Really cool kitchen concept in which some of the cooks/chefs bring you courses. Locally sourced ingredients. One of the 3 best restaurants in the Wailea area."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "Everything we ordered was so good and unique! The octopus, chicken and ahi were my favorites. It was the best meal we had in Maui (over spago and ferraros). The specialty cocktail menu could use a little work but if you ask them to make you something off the menu they will."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "Interesting menu and well prepared food...but you have to get the right table. We were banished to an outside table back by the stairs. It made for great people watching, but diminished the sense of being in the restaurant and it minimized the view."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "Don't let them seat you at the bar, which is right at the Entry, unless you like perky bartenders, watching the kitchen and a lot of foot traffic.. No ocean view from there! The food and cocktails are still highly recommended."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "Maybe the best meal this year - Unique menu, high quality service, food to stimulate the palate - all priceless --- not priceless but pricey but worth it"
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "We were a party of 6 and at $46 per person brunch price, made it one of our more expensive meals in Hawaii....but, the food was excellent and the open kitchen experience was memorable. Custom-made omeletes, delicious bacon, waffles, pancakes, stuffed french toast, muffins and pastries, gorgeous fruit, fresh fruit smoothies and juices. I asked for eggs benedict with ham and avocado and it was brought out special from the kitchen, all included with the brunch price. Gorgeous views and a beautiful property. We would definitely return."

  • "I have enjoyed brunch here a number of times, so when a friend came to visit, we added it to our "must go to" list, and we went to celebrate my birthday. We were not disappointed. My friend's kids have multiple dietary restrictions, and you were able to exceed their expectations when it came to options for them. The food was amazing as always, and the staff was incredibly friendly. Chef even brought out a special birthday surprise for me, and everyone wished me a very warm happy birthday! The only reason the service didn't get 5 stars is that our table was not bussed once in the entire 2 hours we were there. By the time we left, we had a huge stack of plates and no room left on the table. But other than that, everything was wonderful!"
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "We recently dined at Ka'Ana Kitchen and were impressed with the food and ambiance. Our server Jim was outstanding. His recommendations for wine, meals and accommodating our "hungry" kids deserves recognition. The chef came by our table twice and checked on us. We loved our dinner and will be making Ka'ana Kitchen one of our favorite dining destinations."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "The service and location was outstanding, but the prices and portions were grossly outrageous! The coconut sundae was the highlight. A party of four and a $500 tab was ridiculous. Yes, this is hawaii, but there is no excuse for this price gauging. Overhyped, overpriced, spend your $ elsewhere!"
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "If you want to have a special meal while on Maui, make sure to try Ka'ana Kitchen! It has great indoor or outdoor seating the the best service, with locally sourced foods, including vegetarian. You can even watch the chefs cook your meal in the very open kitchen."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "We love this place! Second time in a month we have dinned here and not disappointed in the least. Our server was Kim and she was great. Very professional, great wine knowledge and friendly. If you are dining as a couple, you definitely have to dine at the open kitchen counter.... very entertaining and worth the loss of ocean view! You must eat here... no place like it on all of Maui."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "We ate very well on our recent trip, but this meal was by far our favorite. The rib eye was the tastiest steak I've ever had. The kids gobbled that up along with all the veggies on their plates. Great food, service and ambience."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "This restaurant is all very nice and good. I planned to treat my friends to a nice, final breakfast experience on Maui. The problem really was that we are all fairly frugal people, so they were stunned by the prices, and shy to try the buffet on my dime. Not being foodies, they weren't terribly impressed by the "open kitchen" buffet layout. I think they're more used to the extravagant layout of everything under the sun that we had at the Grand Wailea previously. Anyway, the whole thing felt a bit awkward."
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "A food allergy almost ended our reservation. When we said we would just order drinks all of the sudden the "kitchen figured it out" said the server. At the prices they charge, they should do anything to accommodate a guest. We ended up ordering the Ahi salad, Lobster and Prime Rib. We asked the server to wait 15 minutes before she put in our dessert order, but apparently that was also too difficult for her...8 minutes later the desserts arrived. You know, I don't want to be rushed through a $200 dinner. So, management, please step in and fix this. Our experience was all too disappointing.Our server was an over-the-top character (from MN - she told each and every table)."
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "We had dinner at the Chef's Table in the open plan kitchen and it was fun to watch the kitchen at work. The staff was very friendly and attentive. But the highlight was, of course, the food - simply fantastic, nothing more needs to be said. Oh - other than the wine pairings were some of the best I have had. We also had 3 breakfasts - again the food was great and well worth the price. Yes the place is expensive but in our opinion worth every penny."
    Dined on 6/9/2014
  • "The design is very contemporary with different food stations where various foods are prepared. We had brunch on Sunday. It was THE best brunch we've had. The selection of fruits and breads was expansive. Great omelets, French toast and pancakes. Multiple juices with a mixologist to custom-blend for you. The bacon was incredible. It's pricy at $45 but worth it."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "Great view, service, and phenomenal food! We were staying at the Andaz, which is our new favorite resort in Wailea. Unusual pairings of food, each dish is better than the last! We will definitely be staying at the Andaz again and visit this wonderful restaurant again!"
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "The food was good but the selection was limited if you didn't want to order tapas sized plates. Of course, this place is catered to tourist so the prices are a bit high. Also, I thought the dishes were small. It's good but if I could I would prefer to eat outside the hotel where I would feel its better value."
    Dined on 6/3/2014
  • "Ka'Ana kitchen was the best restaurant my wife and I visited on Maui. In four days, we dined there 5 times (3 days breakfast brunch was included with our room at Andaz). The breakfast brunch was absolutely incredible. For starters, you are greeted with a smoothie bar where they make any fresh smoothie or coffee drink you request. The brunch experience is all inclusive, and includes everything from omelettes, pancakes, pastries, and fruit - each with their own section. For dinner, the menu is organized by producer or farmer and everything is local. The dishes are inventive but simple - Grilled Octopus, Bigeye Ahi, and Rib-Eye with thai basil, peanuts and papaya were the highlight dishes. Sit on the patio and enjoy the sunset!"

  • "We ate at the Ka'ana kitchen for 14 breakfasts and two dinners. Their breakfast is unlike anywhere in the world. The "breakfast experience" is complete with more items than you could ever imagine. Wonderful people are working there and it just adds to an already spectacular meal and setting. From the a la cart menu the slab bacon and Kuala pork tacos are out of this world. The food is so fresh and wonderful and our waitress was SO knowledgeable.We reserved our last night of our honeymoon to return and get the chefs table for the chefs tasting menu. The food is SO above and beyond and the highlight was getting to watch all of the food being prepared. It is such a unique and wonderful experience that it is one we will remember forever."

  • "We went for Wailea Restaurant week and were definitely glad we didn't miss this! Food was unique with so many flavors, it was amazing! Our server Jeff made the meal, he was gracious and friendly and always knew when to stop by or if we needed anything. Great experience :)"

  • "Everything was wonderful, from the private booth in the corner to the show that the kitchen provides. Chef Isaac created an amazing menu that the servers can explain with ease. I recommend the risotto! "

  • "Truly excellent dining! Well suited for foodies or those that just enjoy excellence without pretension. Wonderful locally grown ingredients prepared by an extraordinary chef in innovative ways. Open, modern, vibrant yet laid back Hawaiian ambience. We are foodies who have traveled quite a bit and this is one of the best we have experienced anywhere! "

  • "Sadly the great look of Ka'ana kitchen didn't set the scene for a great night. The grandeur of the open kitchen was instantly lost when we arrived for our meal and had to wait 15 minutes for our table. There is no reception area so we had the choice of sitting outside or standing, awkwardly waiting. We chose the latter as we were concerned that one of several other couples waiting may be given our table. We were eventually seated and introduced to our server, JD. JD did his best all night, but I got the feeling his hands were tied by a slow running kitchen. The food came and was excellent- it almost redeemed the poor service. Michelin star prices, good food, terrible service. Will not be back."

  • "Ordered the fixed price menu as part of Wailea Restaurant Week. All courses were uniformly excellent. Delicious rib-eye cap appetizer, outstanding abalone risotto, and haupia creampuffs for dessert. Server was friendly and attentive. We could not get a table on the lanai, which has a spectacular view, but the restaurant has a clean, modern design. Would definitely recommend."
