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

  • "Nick's is one of our go-to restaurants when we visit Maui for the great service, excellent fish, and ambiance. Although it is not right on the ocean, it overlooks the lovely grounds at the Kea Lani hotel. Palm trees, palm trees, ponds, and pools are lit at night for a delightful scene. The servers time the meal well. The opakapaka (pink snapper) was prepared exactly as we had ordered it. We were seated at one of the tables-for-two away from several larger parties with children, perfect for a romantic evening."

  • "A fellow traveler had recommended this spot. It was close to our hotel so thought we'd give it a try. I wanted to love this place as the views are gorgeous as you walk down the stairs. The bread they start you w is amazing. The rest of the food was fair. We had the dumplings. They lacked the flavor I was expecting. The dinners were also mediocre. If it were me save your money for another nearby gem."

  • "Very nice outdoor dining area that is great for a romantic dinner. Wait until just after sunset for outside dining for the sun can be warm and when seating facing west a bit of a challenge. Service and the food are excellent. Seafood sausage is a unique appetizer."

  • "Location is is nice and easy to find. The hostess staff were welcoming and friendly. The waiters were exceptional, very attentive and helpful. The food was outstanding. We had the Opakapaka and Salmon. Both dishes were delectable. It was an experience you will remember. Outstanding in every way. Pricing was about what you would expect for the setting and known in advance."

  • "Nick's Fishmarket in the Kea Lani Hotel is in a great location. The service is a little crazy, there were at least 5 different people who came to our table to give us menus, take our drink order, our dinner order and our bill. It felt very overdone and not too sincere by any of them. The food was good but nothing exceptional and very expensive. We had the fried calamari appetizer which was good but came out luke warm. I had the Opakapaka fish which was very good and my husband had a filet which he enjoyed. Sitting outside on a warm night was very enjoyable and it is a beautiful hotel."

  • "Friendly, attentive wait staff. The ahi "poi pounder" appetizer was amazing presentation and taste. The roasted beet and farro salad was worth seconds with a stunning presentation. Both fish entrees were elegantly executed, beautiful and delicious. We'll go back."

  • "When we ordered drinks, they told me that they were out of my favorite, so started the meal. However with the first taste of the tuna special and a salmon dish from the menu, we were shocked, THE BEST FISH WE HAD IN MAUI. The ambiance allowed for a comfortable and intimate dining experience with a friendly staff providing excellent service."

  • "We ate here based upon a recommendation from my dad who loved this place. Nick's did not disappoint! The food was excellent and the service was outstanding. My husband could not stop talking about how great the whole experience was. The only disappointing thing was that there was a lady going around taking pictures at each table and she never stopped at our table, before we could ask she was gone for the night. The strawberry dessert they light on fire is great!"

  • "We've been here before and were impressed but tonight must have been an off night. The food was great, my wife had the spiny lobster on mac and cheese and I had the Ahi Oscar. Both were great meals with great favors. The potstickers appetizer with the pineapple curry sauce was delicious. The problem was that we never had attentive service. We had to ask for bread and refills. We tried to find out some of the ingredients in the food but the waiter seemed bothered and was pulled away mid sentence and never returned. It is too nice of a restaurant to have that poor of service. We'll try again and hope it was the exception and not the rule."

  • "We came here after a bad experience at another local restaurant and were beyond thrilled with our experience. I made a reservation at Nick's for the wrong day and they graciously made an adjustment and found a great table for my husband and I in an intimate location. The food was to die for and drinks were exceptional. Customer service was phenomenal. This dining experience made our honeymoon extra sweet."

  • "My husband and I visited for a rare date night away from the kids. The servers reminded me of kids pretending to be waiters at a fancy restaurant instead of the low key nice servers you find at truly top restaurants. Our table outside was lovely although it looked onto the pool rather than the ocean. Our appetizers were the ahi poke (with way too much crab meat) and my husband had the oysters with ahi - fine but nothing special. For the main course I ordered the daily special - opah Milanese - the Milanese - delicious but would have been better with a lighter fish that was seasoned more. My husband described his lobster with Mac & cheese as "clunky". They do have a nice selection of wines by the glass. Wish we had enjoyed it more."

  • "We are at Nick's during our honeymoon stay and had a wonderful experience. It was a late dinner and we skipped the "cocktail" course. We also split an entree, which made dinner very affordable. The fish was perfectly cooked and the sauce was so delicious that we were practically licking the plate. They even brought us a free dessert to celebrate out special occasion."

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."
