Wow. When everything from the homemade bread to the incredible French press coffee is excellent, there is enough said. The ceviche was the best I have had since my vacation in Cabo 8 years ago. The seafood chowder was creative, hearty and very flavorful. The macadamia coconut caramel ice cream- HOME RUN. The best ice cream I have had in a long time- rich, creamy and amazing texture.

We ate dinner at Pacific-O
We ate dinner at Pacific-O twice on our trip to Maui - once when we had 2 guests staying with us, and once as a romantic "last-night" dinner. Great View - and, as always, great food!

So good, we went back again
Amazing wine list. Innovative and well-executed dishes. Locally-sourced.

Excellent Lahaina restaurant
We've been coming to Maui regularly (1-3 times per year) for 10 years. Over that time, many restaurants have come and gone. One of the reliable ones, with very good food and no flaws is Pacific'O. Their farm to table practice is real, their fish is fresh and preparations are superb, the service is great and the ambiance is nice.

Dinner on the beach
It's good and bad (if there can ever be a bad in Maui) eating on the beach. The cruise ship revelers at the luau next door, the smokers a bit too close by the water but offset that with the beautiful sunset and the delicious food. The food is locally sourced--in fact, the greens, vegetables, and coffee are grown on the restaurant's farm not far from here--and the fish is supplied by local fisherman--the chef brought around a mahi mahi (a big guy, maybe 30 pounds). Good luck to the new chef. He's off to a great start.

Dinner by the ocean
Beautifully decorated place with large outdoor patio right next to the beach and The Feast at Lele luau
Watch the sunset, see the Lele performers warming up on the beach, enjoy a beautiful evening outside. Food was very good, nice menu with something for everyone. Some of the drinks were pretty weak. Service was on the slower side, but we were enjoying ourselves, so it was tolerable. We would go here again.

Al fresco dining
Great location on the beach. Dishes were creative and different from the usual. My wife got the special, which featured a smallish piece of fish. But my Ono was a good portion. Both dishes were tasty.
5/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Experienced foodie, i have dined at amazing restaurants and this one is Outstanding. This is one of the top places on Maui. The food is fresh, well presented, delicious & service is great. It will be hard to top this restaurant or its sister property next door, OI. Pacifico gets 5 stars.
5/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food here is fantastic! Can't beat the beach front location as well.
5/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great restaurant! Our waiter was awesome and so was the food and the view!
6/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Beautiful and yummy
Loved the view here of the ocean. Everything was yummy especially the macadamia mahi mahi.
6/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
It does not get better than this
We have been coming to this restaurant for many years when we come to Maui.Again and again has never let us down.The food is imaginative coupled with very well informed servers .worth spending your money here.
6/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good on the beach dinning
Good farm to table meal right on the beach. Pacific' O wasn't my favorite place to eat on Maui, but I would certainly go back there again.
6/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
experience was wonderful..
Food and service was great .. Surf and turf the best
6/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
By far, our meal at Pacific'O was the dining highlight of our Hawaiian vacation. The preparation of the fish was superb. The greens were very tasty. The bartender is a genius! Our waitress was also very helpful - navigating the menu and making great suggestions.
The only issue we had was time. Whatever happened in the kitchen to take over ONE HOUR for our entrees to arrive, we just dont know. Our waitress did not keep us informed. In the end, while the food was amazing, the expereince was less so. Our daughter pretty much lost her appetite by the time her meal arrived.
It is a lovely restaurant, with some of the best food I have ever had. A little more communication could have mafde this a more memorable experience,

When in Maui
This is the restaurant to eat at. Can't say enough about it.
6/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Came back after many years
I loved this place many years ago and enjoyed it just as much=great food and great view.
6/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food with a great view!
Reserve a table on their outside patio around sunset. Beautiful atmosphere! Great food with some unique choices!
7/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
We celebrated our 29th wedding anniversary dinner here and love the sunset view and delicious meal....

Beach front beautiful
Good value for money

Great Discovery-Spectacular food
Can't believe we have never been here and it has been open for 20 years! Every seat has an awesome view and the food was spectacular. Had the fresh fish prepared Kona Winds style. (Fresh fish seared with house spices, served over O’o Farm grown greens and bean sprouts. Topped with avocado, Maui onion salsa, goat cheese,macadamia nuts and bacon soy vinaigrette.) Best dish I had the whole trip.
7/22/2013 5:00:00 PM
We had a great evening here. I had the filet, and my wife had the surf and turf. We both loved our food. We have been to I'O before, so we knew the food quality is good, and this certainly didn't disappoint. I would definitely recommend checking this place out. The only thing holding this back from 5 stars is the fact that the servers could be a little better on customer service.
7/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were happy that friends who'd previously visited Pacific'O recommended we give it a try. We made an outdoor patio reservation for a half hour before sunset. The patio's lovely and the sunset couldn't have been more beautiful. The wine/liquor list is thin but adequate. We both began with the Won Ton appetizer. Wonderful. From there we moved to the two different entrees; Kona Winds, and M&M. Both were very good. We had their signature dessert. It was good but not awe-inspiring. Service was friendly though we often found ourselves craning our necks looking for our waiter. Overall, a very good experience we'd definitely do again.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Romantic Stop for Vacation
Fantastic food, bar and service. You cannot beat the view especially as the sun sets over the ocean.
7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Still one of the best fish
Still one of the best fish restaurants and one of the best views in Maui. A vacation in Maui without a visit to Pacifico's is an incomplete trip.
7/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful sunset dinner!
Beautiful venue, and astounding prep of food, Kona Winds is a great prep of fresh fish on local wilted greens, with avocado,, black rice, all locally grown on O'o farm. Everything I picture new Pacific food to be, Chef was great on coming up with a tree-nut free sauce for my son, subbed in lobster sauce, can't beat that! A great special dinner.
8/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
First time dining at Pacific'O. Lovely setting on the Lahaina beach. We ate on the veranda which offered a wonderful sunset view. The food was very good, service was friendly and efficient. We had the Belly Up and Cerviche for appetizers. Both were great, especially the belly (2 big pieces crispy and tender). We shared the Roasted Maui Onion and Herbed Goat Cheese Salad which was plenty - it's a big tasty salad. For entree's we had Kona Winds (fish was monchong) and Coconut Macadamia Nut Crusted Mahi Mahi. The fish was cooked perfectly and both dishes were well constructed. For dessert we shared the Lumpia (perfect for sharing). The coffee, served in french presses (the only way to go) was also terrific. Would return next time on Maui.
8/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Dinner on the beach with great drinks, freshest fish beautifully cooked and fresh vegetables grown on their own farm. We make it a point to visit Pacific'o's whenever we visit Maui. They never disappoint.
8/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everything from our food to our service was beyond perfect. My husband and I arrive to maui earlier in the day on our honeymoon. We decided to book a table due to the reviews. The food was beyond amazing. I highly suggest the scallop appetizer and bling bling entree. The wine list was massive and explaine each wine perfectly. Out server went above and beyond for us from giving us a complimentary dessert, chatting about our home state (he recently moved from Oregon, where we are from) and gave us 'must dos" on our honeymoon. We will defiantly be back!
8/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had an amazing diner at
We had an amazing diner at Pacific'O. We took the recommendations from our waiter and it was just delicious. The Ceviche and the Catch of the day were really outstanding.
Also to recommend, the excellent cocktail. Even if not on the list, we ordered a Mojito which was of the best one we have ever had.
All in all, a wonderful experience.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Beautiful waterfront setting
We took our daughter here for her 18th birthday and had a wonderful time. We arrived just before sunset which was gorgeous. Started with the Belly UP and Shrimp appetizers, followed by the tomatoe stack salad and entrees including the chicken au au, a local fish dish and the grilled fliet. The food was well prepared and the presentation was excellent. Our waiter had a striking resemblance to the actor Greg Kinear (not sure the spelling). Our family gives Pacific'O 4 thumbs up.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best meal in Maui
We dined at Pacifico and I'o and had tremendous meals - way better value than what we found at the Four Seasons. Rivals Mamas Fish House - but in a much more fun area. Lahaina is great to walk around in, and offers tons of great art galleries.
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great sunset (and food)
Right on the beach. Get there early to see the sunset. Food was delicious. Fresh moon fish served over a salad of arugula and other greens, topped with avocado, goat cheese, and a bacon vinagarette. There were other fresh fish and other preparations, too. The Kailua pig quesadilla was a nice appetizer.
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Watch the surf and dine
This restaurant is a close as you can be to the beach, and the food is wonderful. Fresh, upcountry greens and wonderful island fresh fish! Fabulous!
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, waiter needs training .
Great food, however the waiter we had clearly needed more training.
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have been to Pacific'O twice now and both times the food was incredible. The presentation and quality were superior. I would recommend the sushi entrees as they are extra special given the divine local catches in Maui. We were disappointed in the drinks however, seemingly watered down martinis. Wine was fabulous and a good choice over cocktails always. Highly recommended!!
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
One of our favorite restaurants
One of our favorite restaurants on Maui. We have been dining here for over ten years. Wonderful selection of fresh fish and an awesome sunset view.
9/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great settings & local food
Wonderful romantic setting, locally grown food and cuisine.
9/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Maui At Its Best!
Pacific'O is our favorite restaurant on Maui. There isn't a more beautiful setting. You eat on the patio steps away from the ocean. The food is excellent with something for everyone--fish, steak, lamb, etc. The wine list is extensive, and they do many speciality cocktails. It is expensive but well worth it. If you want the best food on Maui in a romantic and gorgeous setting, this is the place for you!
9/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is a fabulous restaurant
This is a fabulous restaurant with a view of the sunset to match...right at the water's edge. The food is always fresh, delicious and interesting with tasty preparations for the fresh fish...our selections were mahi mahi, hebbi, Ono and ahi. Our server was Jeff who is attentive, cordial and responsive to everything we needed. One of our guests has special needs with food preparation due to celiac disease, and Jeff saw to it that everything she couldn't eat was screened out of the dish she chose.this restaurant has its own special farm where organic produce is raised in immaculate conditions. This was a particularly clear night and the big cruise ship was anchored nearby adding a spectacular view to the waterfront. Couldnt ask for better!

Beautiful view, perfect for our anniversary dinner. Great place to watch the sunset while enjoying a delicious meal.

Great spot for dinner!
We were on Maui for business and I made reservations for pacific-o on open table. The outdoor seating is amazing, right on the beach. The food, wine and ambiance was amazing! I highly recommend this place for a romantic dinner or someone looking for a hidden gem in Lahaina.
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Pacifc'O never misses the opportunity to impress even for a late reservation and on a slow night like the day we were there. The service was excellent and the food was consistently superior as well the only comment that I will make that is not a positive is that while the dinner prices continue to rise the portion sizes should also at least maintain their size. Unfortunately, while the food was delectable, there wasn't a lot there to taste with two very small seafood portions, a rather small salad but at a hefty price.
10/27/2013 5:00:00 PM
Frequent visitor to Maui but
Frequent visitor to Maui but first time at restaurant. Wanted to try something different than our usual spots. Wasn't dispappointed. Excellent food and right on water. Will definitely come back.

We dined to Pacific' O on Nov. 8 and had one of the best meals that we have ever had on Maui. The setting is beautiful! Service was excellent. Food was spectacular. The chef must have won or will be winning awards! We had the beet salad and it was so unique and delicious. It even had some beet dust on it that was prepared at the restaurant. A first for me, but, oh, so amazing. While Pacific' O is known for it's seafood we ordered the filets (I have a fish allergy...) That was the most tender and perfectly cooked filet I have had in years! The sauce on it was sublime. Wine was excellent! All and all FANTASTIC! We are now designating Pacific' O as our final night in Hawaii celebratory dinner location! I can hardly wait to return!
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Consistently very good
They're always on our list of restaurants when we 're on Maui, as they're always good, with lovely views & a pleasant ambience.
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
The Best in Lahaina
Pacific' O is the best restaurant I've ever enjoyed a meal in Lahaina, Maui, HI. Try the Bling Bling. It's a perfect interpretation of what steak and spiny lobster should be. We also enjoyed the shrimp wontons. This was a great appetizer.
