A word from Nick's Fishmarket Maui
Nick’s Fishmarket Maui, located at the spectacular Fairmont Kea Lani Maui, offers the finest in local and mainland seafood in a lush, tropical paradise setting. The romantic flair of the Mediterranean is seen in the restaurant's decor from the rich earth tones of its color scheme, to the crisp white curves of its enchanting architecture. Patrons dining outdoors will fall under the spell of overhead, vine-covered trellises with fragrant stephanotis blossoms and sparkling lights, while looking out over the lush grounds of the hotel and onto the beautiful ocean view. Innovative, classic cuisine is the focus of this premier restaurant. Specialties include fresh Opakapaka, Mahi Mahi, Ahi, Opah, Hawaiian Spiny Lobster, and standards such as Prime New York steak, Rack of Lamb and Greek Chicken. Whether it be a romantic dinner, a family celebration, a business function or just a night out with friends, Nick's Fishmarket Maui is the Valley Isle's first choice in dining.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Nick's Fishmarket is one of our family's favorite restaurants anywhere. The service is unmatched, the food is creative and delicious, and the setting at the Kea Lani is beautiful. We've been dining at Nick's for years, and they have never failed to deliver an amazing evening. It's worth every penny, and more."

  • "In past a periodic treat because of the very high prices, this visit disapointed because of the slow and desultory serivce and the main courses prepared slightly off requested temperature. Beautiful setting and we get our requested banquet. But some of the "specialness" has dissipated."

  • "We were looking for a nice dinner to have on our last night in Hawaii and it was my sons 6th birthday so we needed something kid friendly. We took a chance on nicks and glad we did. They had a kid menu which was nice for our two kids. I had the special which was an opah and my wife had the filet. Both were excellent and the service was great. They have several waiters helping you and my water glass never got empty. One of the waiters overheard it was my sons Birthday and brought him a special desert with happy birthday written in chocolate sauce on the edge of the plate. Nicks is pricey but so are most of the restauants in wiallia. You really can't go wrong here for a romantic dinner or dinner with the family."

  • "A few days ago we led a party of 9 to dine at sunset at Nick's. We have been there about ten times now over the last 10 years or so. We have never been disappointed. Far from it, the food is incredible, the service is first class, and the scene at the Kea Lani hotel is magnificent. Yes, the prices at Nick's are very high, but worth it. Make dining at Nick's the crowing celebration of your vacation, and you will be as happy with this place as we are year in and year out."

  • "We have been traveling to Maui for over 10 years now, and have brought our daughters with us since they were age 4. They can't wait until our sunset dinner at Nicks. Great service and attention to details, delicious fresh fish entrees. The Wowie Maui Greek Salad is to die for! Look forward to next year."

  • "Every time we go to Maui we absolutely have to go to Nicks (at least twice) and always always the very first night we get there! What a way to start off our vacation!"

  • "Dining out with celiac and a dairy-allergy can be difficult, but Nick's was so amazing about catering to me. Upon hearing of my allergies, toasted gluten-free bread was delivered to the table and they were able to concoct a frozen drink without dairy for me- the only place on the island to do so! The service was impeccable and food was absolutely amazing. Definitely a special memory of Maui and I highly recommend the restaurant."

  • "Not sure if the service was operating on Hawaiian time or not, but it took 90 mins for our entrees to arrive!!"

  • "One of the best meals I've ever had! We all (family of 5) tried something different, and everything was fantastic. The sea food was so fresh and wonderful and the service couldn't have been better. Overall perfect dining experience for our first night in Maui!"
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "Though there appeared to be several servers working as a team to serve us, the service was very much lacking. We ordered a drink and had to ask twice, ordered iced tea and it took us asking 3 different people to get it and a refill was promised but never received. The food was good, but the poor service was intolerable."

  • "The restaurant was very good but it was extremely expensive."

  • "We ate here ten years ago on our honeymoon, and it was just as I remembered. We both had the mahi mahi and it was to die for. Everything was amazing here. Thank you for making us feel special on our anniversary."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "We always eat here while visiting Maui and chose to celebrate my husband's birthday here the night we arrived. We each had a drink at the bar before dinner - good service there. My husband ordered the tuna, I had filet mignon and both were very good. Unfortunately we had what was, I think, an isolated incident with an insulting server. It did put a damper on the evening, but overall I would still recommend Nick's."

  • "4th time there. Was excited. Horrible food! Lied about abalone being fresh. Waited 1 hr. Abalone has 2 b thawed out later we were told. AWFUL FOOD! DO NOT GO TO NICKS. AWFUL AWFUL. Room service would be better. BUT NOT AT THE FAIRMON KEI LANI!!"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Nicks never disappoints. We have been there over 5 times and the food is always good. Service for the most part is spot on although now and again there are some hiccups. A must on Maui!"

  • "We celebrated our 43rd wedding anniversary. The wait staff were wonderfully attentive but not intrusive. Their recommendations were welcomed and definitive. The food was good and attractively presented."

    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "We had some not so great experiences at other "hotel restaurants" in the area. Nick's was by far the best of those and also was the best overall dining experience we had in the South Maui area. We have already referred Nick's to several friends and will continue to do so."

  • "We were very pleased with the food and service. Everything was of the highest quality."

  • "Awesome experience! While the dinner was exceptional, we were so pleased with the service we received from Lucas, Chris and our other servers. Yes, we had four people attending our table! With this, one might think your table woul be overrun with fussing staff. Not so. Lucas, our main server, kept a discrete eye on our table, attending to any need promptly. Chris dropped by, chatted for a moment and making sure we were being taken care of. Everyone was pleasant, personable and professional. As if to add an exclamation point to our evening, we were presented with a special dessert with "Congratulations" written in chocolate around the top of the serving plate. We were celebrating our marriage and Nick's made it even more memorable."

  • "I made my reservation at 6:30pm then changed it by mistake to 7:30pm. It happened that I was at the pool by that time and when I went to change my ressie the mgr was too busy to come out&assist me. They advised me to go to the 2nd floor&hv concierge help me. Long story short I was going to cancel my ressie and did not after Jacqueline the hostess assisted me. He customer service skills are beyond compare. When dinner start Chris took my wine order but no one serve it till almost 20m when I asked Alex about my wine. Overall the team did a good job they were all very knowledgable but we were not sure who is our server because we had 3 or 4 of them and we had to repeat our self when it comes to wine pouring. Food was awesome."

    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "While we enjoy Nick's, one experience marred our recent visit. we hadn't even been seated yet and the red headed hostess asked my husband to remove his hat due to dress code. He always removes his hat and gives it to me to put in my purse. She needed to give him a chance to do it before saying something. He was annoyed for the next 20 minutes after we sat down. It was also her tone. Yet, the restaurant didn't seem to mind sitting us next to two separate tables with misbehaving, screaming kids. We like Nick's but would prefer a different environment than the one we experienced the other night."
    Dined on 6/3/2014
  • "We went to try their Restaurant Week menu. Normally, we would not go somewhere this pricey. The meal was delicious. Service was very attentive, even tho' they were very busy. Wine list was pretentious, which means VERY expensive! I would not go back for that reason. A nice glass of wine should not cost $20! The location is nice, but mostly because of Maui's beatiful weather!"

  • "Dined at Nicks for a Wailea a Restaurant Week. We try to avoid hotel restaurants usually since so expensive and tourist-centric, but the special meal pulled us in. So glad we went! Beau the waiter was totally on his game, the food was great, and although the wine list is pricey there were a few good choices,"

  • "We ate at Nick's 2 times while visiting Wailea last week. Food and service was top notch!! Highly recommend the Kahlua pig pot stickers and the chocolate decadence dessert. Out of all of the restaurants we visited - the service we received while dining here was the best. We had several people helping us and checking in on us. We will definitely be back when we visit Maui again. "
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "In our week in Maui, my wife and I found many of the restaurants to be over-hyped as well as over-priced. While Nick's was on the expensive side, it was well worth it, as the food lived up to the reputation. The service was even better. Thanks Nick!"
    Dined on 5/22/2014
  • "We decided to try Nicks for our last night in Maui anniversary celebration and what a great idea this was! We started at the bar for happy hour and shared the calamari appetizer and some Mai tais. Happy hour is a great deal, and the food and drinks were sublime. My husband and I decided to issue the calamari challenge to eateries at home to see if other establishments could match the light delicious treat. Then dinner of delectable Ono and mahi. While we watched the sunset. Perfect. Our other favorite place on Maui is their sister establishment, Sarentos. We were curious how they compare and both are fabulous, so now we have another favorite for Maui meals. We will return."
    Dined on 5/21/2014
  • "Took my wife here for our last night on Maui...Wow. The cocktail shrimp were almost 5" long; the salmon was great and the ono was amazing. It is not cheap but I believe you get what you pay for. Will definitely stop here if we are ever on Maui in the future."

  • "View was amazing. Couldn't have been better. We had best table in restaurant, overlooking Pacific. Service was top notch, but a little over the top. Six people visited our table before we placed our order. Food was solid. On the expensive side, but we knew that ahead of time."
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "My wife and I stopped at Nick's after finding it on Open Table. We had a terrific lunch that included a dish from their dinner menu that the server suggested I should try, based on our food-choosing conversation. The staff was enthusiastic and the food was great. Nice view of Maalea Harbor too. We liked it so much that when we picked up our son, daughter-in-law and their two daughters at the Maui airport the next day, we brought them right to Nick's. They liked it too."

  • "The food was excellent. But the service was not good. Although we had 3 different waiters for our table it was not a coordinated effort, some of us ordered wine then no other drink orders were taken we had to ask for drinks. Waiters rarely checked on table at the end had to ask for check. When it was brought nothing was said just handed it to us no thank you or anything. It's to bad because the food was some of the best we had."

  • "This restuarantwould be a gem if they could get their service right. We were seated promptly in their elegant dining room overlooking the ocean. Then the fun began. We were left unattended for long periods while we waited and waited for wine menus, drink service, dinner, etc. and it seemed everytime we were waited upon it was a different person. It was like the old adage "who's on first". So, be forewarned. The food would make me recommend it, but the service makes me hesitate."
