Diner Reviews
  • "Typical tourist place. It's called Fish & Pasta, but there were only two pasta dishes. I expected variety, mix and match, and everything that comes with a good pasta place!!! Beer list was all bottled except domestics, so no local brews on draft. Overall, kinda lame."

  • "Despite the name this is really a seafood restaurant. They do have some pasta dishes but they are not really a focus. However, the fish is well prepared and service was attentive and cheerful. The overall experience was very satisfying but not Wow."

  • "First time here and pleasantly surprised as we've never been that impressed with the restaurants at whalers village. The sushi was good and the fish was simple, but good. Can't beat the view if you can get there for sunset."
    Dined on 4/1/2014
  • "What a pleasant surprise! This little restaurant was a hidden gem! The jumbo shrimp and pasta was outstanding! Our kids loved the smoothies! I would go back in a heartbeat!"

  • "Pleasant place for dinner. Good desserts. Really must make a reservation if you don't want to wait an hour."

  • "I thought the food was pretty good. It was really windy and cold in the restaurant so we asked for the ceiling fan to be turned off she said she would put the window treatment down or turn off the fan but nothing was ever done. Needless to say it was an uncomfortable experience"
    Dined on 3/18/2014
  • "We were not thrilled. For the price the food was only so-so. For example, the risotto was a gummy tasteless glob under my fish. The fish was uninspired in preparation and taste. I think the kitchen is geared toward getting food out fast for the tourists. And then there was a charge for the bread. Service was okay, but not attentive. Then we all commented that the restaurant oversold itself with pasta in its name. There were two specific pasta items on the menu and then some entrees were served over pasta. I expected more all the way around. I will never go here again when there are so many other options."

  • "We have eaten here 5+ times and can't get enough of the beet salad. Wish they had it for lunch too! All the fish dishes are wonderful and fresh and the house made mozzarella and ricotta cheeses are excellent!!!! We will be back on our next visit to Maui."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "Ahi Poke in Hawaii should be excellent. When a customer complains, you should listen."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "Fish was over cooked. Had wahoo and tuna which was both cooked well done. Homemade pasta was great. Scenery was really solid."
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "Mussels too salty. Chicken too greasy. Pasta with Nori was terrible - I am an adventurous eater and this was just plain bad. Waiter should have removed charges from the bill."
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "We had a wonderful dinner here with a table overlooking the beach. Sunset was spectacular! The crispy brussel sprouts, crispy ahi roll and blackened opakapaka over homemade pasta were all unusual and delicious. Our waitress was friendly and efficient. We will definitely go back the next time we're in Maui. The restaurant is very popular so a reservation saved us waiting on a long line."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "Very expensive and microwave food. We had the chicken and salmon and they were tasteless, burnt and dry. The hostess had an attitutude. The waitress was nice but kind of aloof. The scenery was spectacular though."

  • "Surrounded by very good places to eat MFP was a good stop but can not think of a really good reason to go back. Solid pick, good food very nice service."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "We both had the Hawaiian Sea Bass (HAPU’UPU’U) and it was cooked to perfection. Service was good but they were already out of one of their fish specials by 645. Bummer there. Owner has several restaurants and is also a sommelier. I was expecting a more robust wine list and was a bit disappointed in the selection but liked what I ordered. Hostess a bit grumpy but we can live with that."

  • "I have been to Maui 4 times, and have seen 4 different restaurants in this spot. I think these guys have a recipe that will allow them to stick around. Great food, attentive service and an unbeatable view. Go early for sunset, and as everything is fresh, they run out of things fast."

  • "We had just arrived in Maui the day before and were worried as to where we could go for Valentines Day. We were two couples and a baby with stroller, and they accommodated us very nicely. The staff was great, and so was the food. Great Pina Coladas!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Just great food and service. Fresh made pasta is best in West Maui. The brussels sprouts are unique and amazing!"
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Our reservation was for 7:30 and they were already out of three of the entrees , two of their specialty drinks & at least 2 deserrts. Food we had was very good. Service was okay but waitress kept having to apologize for sold out selections. We would probably eat here again for the fresh pasta but will hope they plan better for the crowd."
    Dined on 2/17/2014
  • "With a name like Maui Fish and Pasta, the Opakapaka we had did not dissapoint. It was perfectly prepared. Very good."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The service is fine but the food is really not. If you are really hungry this resturant is close to the Kaanapali resort hotels. If you stick to simple items you will probably be OK."

  • "A wonderful and relaxing dinner experience for valentines day"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We tried this place 4 times, each time hoping we would have a better experience because we love it's sister restaurant Sensei. This place must have a different manager because the food is average at best and the service is inconsistent. We will not be going back."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "The food here was so good we came back the next day for dinner again. Kids' food is also really good, especially the smoothies."

  • "This is a great restaurant. The fresh fish selections are beautifully prepared and presented. The service is prompt and very friendly. The location is perfect. Nothing like enjoying a tropical drink as you look out on the ocean."

  • "went here with my husband and 2 other couples. we had wanted to go to Mama's fish house but it was so far from where we were staying on West Maui and this place was reviewed well. Our meals were delish. would highly recommend."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "Only two pasta dishes on the menu and one special. And "pasta" is in the name of the restaurant???? We waited 20 min at our table to see a server or get water. The server was nice and friendly when she arrived. We had to ask the host twice who was taking care of us before she showed up. The food was fresh and came out fast. The $28 chicken pasta dish was over complex with both capers and olives and pesto chicken. The chicken in the dish was bland and dry. The appetizers and salads were much better then the mains. I would not recommend this place for a pasta dinner. Stop by for drinks.. Spending $240 for dinner for four you can get much better food for half the price in the same mall. Or maybe order fish?"

  • "We went to this restaurant to try something different and less expensive than wed been spending. I'd not heard any feedback and the comments I read were from Trip Advisor. The menu on-line seemed very limited so my expectations were somewhat limited. We were early and sat at the bar for awhile enjoying a cool drink. When we were brought to our table, the view we had of the water, the island of Lanai and the sunset were spectacular. An even bigger surprise was, in addition to the menu I saw on-line, the had several specials that looked and were excellent. We enjoyed the view, the food and the service. Another must try restaurant at Ka'anapali's Whalers Village."

  • "They were out of Opah and offered Monchong instead, in the same preparation, which was fine. But we were there nearly an hour before food arrived."

  • "Have been here numerous times in past as Cane and Taro as well, still enjoy it every time. Menu chooses are a litlle heavy on the pasta side. Ahi sashimi and beet salad particularly fantastic."
    Dined on 1/23/2014
  • "The fish and pasta dishes were excellent but do not order the steak or potato entrees. Steak was tough and baked potato didn't en have any butter on it. The white shrimp and pasta is very nice as is the garlic cheese bread. French onion soup just ok. Doesn't have the exciting menu that it did when it was Cane and Taro."
    Dined on 1/22/2014
  • "This restaurant is a real "sleeper" on the Ka anapali scene. While Leilanis and Hula Grill have a 45 minute wait, you can usually walk into Maui Fish and Pasta and be seated almost immediately. Don't think people have tried the great fish and food there, maybe the name is misleading and they think they'll only be able to eat starchy pasta? My husband had the fish of the day, excellently prepared. I always order the Dragonfly Roll because it has never disappointed me, just wish they would serve it for lunch!"
    Dined on 1/6/2014
  • "A great restaurant with excellent food at reasonable prices. Not inexpensive, but not overly expensive. A great buy given the food and atmosphere."

    Dined on 1/14/2014
  • "We enjoyed our tipi me there, but we certainly had better on Maui. The waiter was spectacular which made our meal better. The atmosphere isn't as scenic as the others in the area. My husband had the pork shank which was outstanding...recommended by our waiter."

  • "First time and can't wait to return. Must try the French Maui Onion soup - exceptional!! We had the crunchy spicy tuna roll - it was so good, we ordered another one! The poke was some of the best I have ever had. We also had the scallops - phenomenal! My son ordered the shrimp pasta and he said the past was wonderful - nothing left on his plate! The wedge salad was one of the best I have had. I HIGHLY recommend this place. The service was excellent!"
