A word from Pacific'O
Sunset dining at its best! Pacific’O is located on Lahaina's most beautiful white sand beach with panoramic views of three neighboring islands. This was the chosen residence and "playground" for Hawaiian royalty; here ancient kings and queens feasted and made merry. Today, enjoy the same pleasures in Pacific'O's open air dining room or on the romantic beachside patio. Long recognized as a leader in local, organic dining; Pacific'O was the first to establish their very own island farm. Each day the table is set with just harvested macrobiotic vegetables and fruit; and local fishermen deliver fresh fish still dripping from the sea. Pacific'O is a local favorite since opening in 1993.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Always one of my favorites. Have been coming here for the last 8-10 years and have never once not enjoyed the experience. Our server was efficient, knowledgable and attentive. No complaints here. Will be back soon!"

  • "Went for 6:30 dinner seating. Seating was near the beach. It was a little noisy at times, but not bad, due to a luau going on next door, and a larger party with children next to us. Our server was gracious and very professional. I started with the Maui Onion and surfing goat cheese Salad ($15). I'd rate it at about a 7 or 8. Not bad. For my entree, I ordered the Coconut crusted Mahi ($39). I thought this was very good, about 8.5 or 9. I really enjoyed it. Paired it with an un-oaked Chardonnay. They have a Zagat-rated wine list. No room for dessert, so I can't comment on that. Overall a good experience."

  • "The setting was magical. What a perfect place to watch the sunset and wind up a wonderful visit. The signature cocktails and appetizer were a great start to our evening. My husband thoroughly enjoyed the lamb duo and I loved the pasta with fresh ono. Next time I want to do the chef's tasting dinner, but I'll need to go hungrier! Pacific'O is a great excuse to go to Maui!"

  • "This restaurant offers a great view of the sunset, delicious food, lots of fresh vegies grown on their own farm, and good service."

  • "We have been comg to Pacific'O for many years for a special night out and have never been disappointed. On our recent trip we were surprised to learn that Chef McDonald is no longer the executive Chef, but we were happy to see that several of our favorite dishes remained on the menu, although under new names. Recommend going a bit before sunset so that you can enjoy the sunset from the oceanfront dining patio. The food and service are consistently excellent."

  • "What a pleasant surprise Pacific'O was! We overheard a planner at Marriott mention this great restaurant only 2 miles away at Lahaina. We made a reservation and found a wonderful location on the beach with fantastic food, ambiance and service. I would highly recommend this restaurant for vacationers."

  • "We have come to Pacific O many times thru the years while vacationing here and love the view and ambience. You can either sit outside under umbrellas or inside with still a good view. Food has always been very good here, but this time we ordered their strip loin and found it had no flavor at all and was over done. With the price we paid we were disappointed. Had a great salad with sweet onions though and very tasty bread. Will try again for lunch though since we have usually had better meals."

  • "We went for dinner on Fathers Day. The view and sunset were beautiful. We had a fantastic server, he was there to check on you all the time.. The food was over the top. We had drinks, appetizers, main meal the coffee and desert. Never felt like we were being rushed. This is our second time at this restaurant and will go again another visit."

  • "It has been 9 years since our last visit to Pacific'o and we are so glad we came back on this trip to Maui! The best view are here so book reservations during sunset. Great locally sourced food and an extensive wine list - even a Greek wine we never see at restaurants. Also there is a Keki (kids) menu and the scenery definitely kept our son busy. Wonderful evening! We'd like to come back with a larger group and do the tasting menu with wine pairings."

  • "We have dined at Pacific 'O for years and it never fails to disappoint. With a new chef, the menu has been updated but the fresh fish and farm to table fresh ingredients are still the stars. I had the chicken which is probably the first time I have not had a fresh fish entree. The dish was amazing and the portion was larger than I could finish in one sitting (so I made it two and finished the next day). The staff was wonderful and service was spot on. Why go anywhere else when you know you will get great food, amazing sunset views and attentive service. Still our fav dinner place after all these years. "

  • "The food and service are great but the view at sunset is amazing. We always make it appoint to dine here when in Maui. The fish is always fresh."

  • "My husband and I have been dining at Pacific'O for almost ten years on our annual Maui vacation; it never disappoints. The views at sunset are spectacular, food is amazing & unique, and the service is attentive. What I was really pleased with this trip was their wine list; it was reasonably priced and really diverse - because of that we ended up buying two bottles! I've tried most of their menu over the years; fresh fish, lamb, scallops, pasta - there isn't anything that wasn't fresh and a unique dining experience. Be sure to treat yourself next time you are on Maui! "

  • "Beautiful outdoor patio steps from the water. High priced, Faux-gourmet food. Disappointing!"
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • " The food and service are only outdone by the magnificent sunset view from this wonderful place. The fish is always fresh and perfectly complimented with wonderful fresh vegetables. Tonight I started with the ceviche. It was wonderful with fresh fish and delicate flavors but a very large portion for an appetizer! Dinner was fish and greens. had to take the fih home because I was full from the ceviche but the greens were delectable."

  • "We have come to pacific Os several times And it's never disappointed! Fabulous service and a inventive menu with the freshest fish you available anywhere on Maui makes this one of our top 3 restaurants in Maui! "

  • "The ambiance couldn't be more perfect. The beach and ocean are a few feet away and the sunset is spectacular to watch while dining. The food and service were excellent. It's our second time eating at Pacific'o and we will definitely be back next time we're in Maui. "

  • "Outdoor dining is spectacular, service was excellent- very attentive/ personable staff. Food was excellent- mahi mahi and ahi were cooked to perfection. Excellent wine list, - restaurant a little hidden, but worth finding!"

  • "We let them know it was an anniversary and had a beach front table for the sunset. The rack of lamb and coconut macadamia mahi mahi were both excellent."

  • "The last two times we have eaten there the place seems to be going downhill......not too busy and my wife's Ono was was dry and way over cooked...this should not happen in a hi end restaurant"
    Dined on 4/30/2014
  • "We spent our last night on Maui seeing an amazing sunset and having a very good meal. We started with the wonton wrapped shrimp that was great. I had the Coconut Crusted Mahi and my partner had the Fish and Greens featuring the local Ono. Both meals had very unique delicious flavors and I would recommend them both. We finished with the pineapple sorbet with fresh fruit and it was a perfect end to a very good meal. Our server was barely adequate and that was my only disappointment in the evening. This is a high end beautifully located restaurant and this man was not engaging or conversant. The only time he showed interest in us was when we asked a question of another waiter about our aperitif that had not matched our expectations. "
    Dined on 4/29/2014
  • "The food was very good, the service professional and the wine list attractive but the highlight of Pacific O has to be the patio dining with an unobstructed view of the Pacific Ocean and the sunset. The fact that a Luau was happening next door to provide some entertainment was a bonus. Not inexpensive but nothing in Hawaii is. Pacific O was worth it. A very enjoyable if regrettably one time experience. "

  • "One of our favorite restaurants in Maui, food is great, great service, great bar tenders!"
    Dined on 4/27/2014
  • "Many of the restaurants on Maui that offer the views and ambience that Pacific'O does are not only expensive but also mediocre. Pacific'O, while not a bargain, provided both the ambience and excellent dining. I would happily return."
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "You can only describe the menu as fresh. Every vegetable, fish, even the edible flowers we would say were fresh. Nothing was overdone in sauces you could just taste the crisp clean flavor of the dish. I would especially recommend the beet salad, the ahi was amazing and cooked to perfection. My husband had the special fish cooked with bacon and greens and raved. Enjoy!"
    Dined on 4/24/2014
  • "We have dined here a few times while visiting Maui. The veggies are fresh from their local farm and the dishes are very enjoyable. Our server was very knowledgable, especially about the wine, which we appreciated. We do enjoy the food but there are nicer places to dine. It is right next to a vibrant beach area so you might watch some beach goers if you dine early. We caught a volley ball game and part of the luau going on next door."

  • "This was our favourite restaurant of the 6 we went to in Lahaina. Everything was wonderful - food, drinks, service, ambience... The server was very knowledgeable and helpful with fish choices. The local ebbie (fish) was perfect! Thank you all. "

  • "This trip everything was just ok. There have been changes to the menu over the last year. I wasn't impressed with the food this time. The view is always amazing at sunset!"

  • "Food was mediocre, we were stuffed in a corner by a fence, couldn't see our food, it was mediocre tasting. Nothing special. One poor tasting vegetarian meal option ( which was different from the open table dinner menu selection). Over priced, mediocre food. Service was awkward, odd, nice but poor communication skills by waiter. He did offer to refund our vegetarian meal. There are so many fabulous places to eat in Maui, don't waste your money here."

  • "We were sat on the patio, perfect temperature with the umbrellas shielding us from too much heat and then taken away just in time to see the lovely sunset. Four of us dined together, sharing the shrimp wontons as a starter. Very tasty! I could live on the chopped pineapple served with it. Each of us tried a different fish dinner, mine was the coconut crusted mahi mahi, it was excellent. Around the time we were finishing our dinner, we started noticing over powering cologne drifting our way, it got so strong as the evening wore on, we were unable to try any of the desserts, opting for a hasty departure on a lovely evening."
    Dined on 4/16/2014
  • "For the view and water front location this restaurant can't be beat. Our table was closer to the restaurant side on the outdoor patio but the view of the water and Lani'i was spectacular. The server was good but could have been more engaging. Not sure if he had too many tables or if that is his nature. We started out with the tempura battered oysters and they were very good. I had the coconut crusted macadamia nut mahi-mahi and it was tasty. My friends had the tempura tuna and they liked it. Much of the menu seemed to be overpriced. Especially when both entrees had the same sides. The wine list was extensive and easy enough to find a reasonably priced bottle. Overall good food but a much better view. "
