I live in Maui and Honu is my favorite place for a nice dinner or to bring visitors. Honu has an open air environment right on the water.
Just the sight of the boats bobbing around just off the dining area is enough to make you say Ahhhhhh but there is more!
Well prepared and imaginative dishes mixed with simple favorites like pizza. We had fresh oysters on the half shell - fresh and tender. Gado Gado salad had a mix of local vegetables and an delicious dressing. seared tuna sashimi appetizer that was big enough to be an entree (at least for me it was) The turtle cheese cake was the best I have ever had. Generous caramel drizzle and a wedge of brittle that was crunchy and melted in my mouth. Great service too. Always a treat at Honu

We had originally headed to the Sea House for lunch (we'd already eaten there a few times during our stay at Napili Surf), but when we were rudely told we couldn't sit on the patio shoeless (yes we had snorkeled there, but there were plenty of shirtless and shoeless people on the patio several times during our visit and we had very carefully rinsed and dried on the grass for a good half hour, and were dressed very acceptably other than not having shoes), we decided to head to Lahaina. We could not have been happier with our choice. Perfect food, perfect ambiance, and perfect service. Thank goodness we didn't miss this gem!

Loved food and service
Wonderful table, waitress Jackie, mussels, kale salad, and sausage pizza! Selections and portions perfect!

Open Table reviews lured us in. We were not disappointed!
Great food, great service.
We had a table for two overlooking the ocean...beautiful!
I ordered the Clam Chowder as a starter...shucked the 3/4 of a pound of oysters...exquisite. The fresh fish dore as my main. Delicious
My husband had the local baby romaine salad and the spicy sausage pizza excellent!
We thoroughly enjoyed Honu and will return next year!

Waves rolling in, great food
We went there on a Thursday night and the place was packed, but they do take reservations on open table. Large menu. Try the ahi ceviche appetizer, 4 medium sized pieces of ahi. Try the kale salad with fresh onaga (a type of snapper) grilled fish. Highly recommend it. In addition to many appetizers and nice entres, you can also order pizza (also small ones for the kids), the night we were there the pizza of the day was falafel with greek yogurt on top. The place is open air and nice waves roll up within about fifteen feet of the back of the restaurant. It's also south facing so go for the sunset seating even though it might be a bit bright until sunset (they have sunscreens that they roll down). Parking can be difficult.

Food amazing....everyone working at HONU extremely happy, friendly and thanks customer for coming in we had the best dining experience and bestbfood on Maui

best food on Maui yet!
Honu had a great mix of local and tourist guests the night we were there. I must admit that the name of the place Honu Seafood and Pizza didn't make me all that excited before I got there but it was recommended by a seasoned Hawaii traveler. The service was low key but well done and the menu was very unique. We had Ahi bruschetta, then dora and more ahi. The preparation was pleasing to the eye and the taste was even better. I don't usually give reviews but Honu deserved 2 thumbs up, my recommendation and a promise to return on my next visit to Maui! BTW: they went well out of their way on their wine list, too; I'm a self-certified wine geek and loved their selection - quantity and quality.

View amazing! Food amazing! I have a crazy sister with so many allergies it's not even funny. Rachel made sure she left breathing. 5 star all the way!

Best maui Restaurant
Amazing food (try the clams as a starter) which we haven't a lot of yet despite high prices on Maui. Wonderful location but more importantly great healthy creations, flavors, spices, presentation: outstanding! Good service, charming waiters, great cocktails.

Best food and dining experience
Best food and dining experience we had on the island. Great cocktails, incredible fresh food and unbeatable view. The service is top notch. You can tell each employee enjoys their job and is happy to make you experience a memorable one.

My favorite Lahaina restaurant!
Always know the food will be fresh and tasty. Friendly attentive service and very good wine selection. Love being there watching the sunset over the ocean. I've been here over 5 times and quality of food, service, ambiance is always "da best"
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Outstanding food and service
We ordered our meal and had it family style so we can try a little of everything. The Lobster Mac and Cheese was delicious! The deserts were a little rich and could have been better. Our waitress was super friendly!
9/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Don't let the street view fool you, Small setting, great food. Well run upscale restaurant , we really enjoyed our evening
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fantastic. Must go!
This is one of Maui's best. Consistent, enjoyable, great service, fantastic location and oh by the way the food is terrific. Try it. You will love it.
We have eaten there often and keep going back. Never disappointed. Too many great items to recommend one item. Try them all.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful setting on the ocean.
Wonderful setting on the ocean. Hold out for a seaside table...it's worth the wait!

Definitely spring for the
Definitely spring for the ahi bruschetta, a little pricey for an app but delicious. I had the dore style fish and wife had paso bucco, both great but the fish was better. Will definitely recommend to friends. Nice small waterfront location and good drinks.
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fun and fresh
Great seafood (literally) on the ocean. We ordered a bunch of appetizers and were pleased with everything. A definite go-to place away from the busy section of Front St..

Honu- My Favorite
A friend took me to Honu when I first moved to Maui and it became my favorite restaurant on the island. I now bring my visitors to experience Honu. My absolute favorites are the Cucumber Ginger Cocktail, Ahi Bruchetta- an amazing array of flavors and textures, the Crab Mac n Cheese, which I learned on my first visit, is enough for 4 people to share as an appetizer, and the Beet and Goat Cheese Salad. Of course I've tried many of their dishes and someone usually gets the Special of the evening. There has never been a meal that wasn't fantastic! The servers are always friendly, helpful welcoming with the spirit of Aloha. What more can I say except that I'm looking forward to my next dining experience at Honu.

Best gluten free pizza I have ever had. Loved the kale salad.
10/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent Ocean Front Dining
It's pretty well known on Maui that good food and service are hard to come by, so I had relatively low expectations coming into the restaurant. By the end of the evening, I was more than pleased with the outstanding service of their staff, and the quality of the food. This restaurant features a beautiful view of Lanai, and is literally steps from the water. They feature a large wine and beer selection, as well as some great appetizers, so it would also be a great choice for the bar as well. I had the Kobe Beef Steak, with fingerling potatoes, and was thrilled with the flavors of the meal. My wife ordered the Crab Mac n cheese, and was amazing as well. The portions on everything were a reasonable size, and we ended up taking some food home.

Awesome sunset and food! Do
Awesome sunset and food! Do not let the pizza part of the offerings let you think this is a sub-par dining experience - superb food and view. Worth the trip.
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
A great time on the beach.
This restaurant was recommended to us from another restaurant and it was fabulous. The Ahi Sausage pizza was very good and the view was stunning of the sunset. Thanks for a great memory.
10/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
We dined at Honu twice while on a recent vacation. The food was fresh and well prepared. Service was great from bar to tableboth times. With a little patience we had a cozy table right on the water. Very romantic!
10/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had a wonderful time at Honu seafood and Pizza. Their food was amazing and their service was impeccable. We went there the last night of our honeymoon in Maui and they did not disappoint us. Every part of our meal was exceptional and we are going back when we get a chance to go to Maui again.

Truffle Mac and Cheese with Lobster. What could be better? Outstanding Ahi salad. Fun Hibiscus Martini. Wonderful sunset view over Lanai. Our waitperson, Heather was adorable and attentive. It just keeps getting better and better each time we go.

One of Maui's best
Enjoy this great spot for one of the better meals you will find on Maui. Consistently goof food, great service, fantastic water front location. Selections for everyone from comfort food to fancier PacRim, all of it done just right. One our favorites. You won't go wrong by stopping for dinner.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great place for friends & family
We were able to enjoy great company, terrific food, and great beverages while we said good-bye to our friend. The sunset view was beautiful that day which made it that much more special. Its was nice to have an evening with friends without being rushed. At no time did we feel like we had to hurry to make our choices so the next table could be seated. I can't wait for our next evening out!

Wonderful view, wonderful food, perfect for a leisurely birthday lunch!
11/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
After all the raves and reviews about Honu we had to experience it first hand. It is located "off the beaten track" but ocean side so the setting is great. A very busy spot from start to finish but the service was excellent and attentive. Portions are generous so come hungry or share (for more variety). We tried two appetizers, a salad and desert (and were full)! Nice selection of wines and specialty drinks so it is a must visit if you are in the area. I would like to go back and try the sister restaurant (Malo) as well as Honu for their pizzas. 8 / 10
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Never thought We'd eat a fresh lobster pizza but it was the a special that evening-incredible!
Dining right on the water in Lahaina our new favorite place.
11/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food - service can be beter
Great food but too many service people walking constantly around your table.
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
2nd time here. Tried the asian pasta and that was tasty. Service is excellent as always and would recommend to first time visitors to Maui.

Honu has it all...a great oceanfront location, ( complete with REAL turtles, honus, in the water, bobbing up and down), delicious food and wonderful frie day and efficient wait staff.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Wow wow wow!!! Right on the ocean with a very casual Hale feel, the ambience belies the experience. The use of spices and combination of flavors is phenomenal! Everything we had was sensational. This place is a keeper!

Our absolute favorite on Maui
Our absolute favorite on Maui !! Food always first rate!
Jackie is a gem! Their baker is superb!!

Best dinner of the trip.
Spent 5 nights in Maui for 15 yr wedding anniversary. Honu had the best food of the trip easily (also dined at Duke's, Kimo's, Leilani's, & Warren & Annabelle's). Sat right near the water. Clam chowder loaded with fresh clams, some of the best I've had and I'm from Massachusetts. The crab Mac & cheese was great too. Peanut butter mousse for dessert was killer. Drinks were great too. Wife enjoyed her Maui tomato mozzarella balsamic sea salt salad, and dungeness crab sandwich.

a honeymoon dinner spot
We went for dinner one night while on our honeymoon. Being someone with a gluten and dairy allergy it can sometimes be difficult to find a restaurant that caters to theaes allergens and leave full. This was a great experience
11/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
Perfect for date night
Love this place, it's practically on the beach so you feel like you are floating away. Highly recommended if you like dining Oceanside!
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
Hanu was recommended by a friend who knew we were not big on making the 45 minutes through the mountains to get back to our condo in Wailea from LaHaina. Amazing for me to write this, but indeed it was worth the drive!.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Amazing Service & Food
This is my sister and her husbands favorite restaurant! After going there on Saturday night, I now know why. The food was spectacular and the service amazing! The food came out quite quickly even though it was busy and our drinks were never empty! The waitress was constantly coming by and checking on us and she was super friendly.
Everyone that works there did an excellent job!! Definitely want to go back again!
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Stunning setting and great food
We couldn't believe that we were sitting right next to the water at sunset. Then the food arrived and it was delicious. It was a very special evening .
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
Food with a View
Right on the beach, fantastic view! Food was awesome too! Had the Grilled Spanish Octopus, Kale Salad and Asian Pasta. Everything was tasty. The portion size for the Asian Pasta was huge! Hope to be back soon.
11/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
Our server was so friendly
Our server was so friendly and recommended amazing food! (And even recommended places to visit throughput our week's stay here in Maui.) All of the entrees were delicious, but the best of the bunch was the pesto shrimp pizza. Wow!
Kids menu was pricey, but did include a toy and sundae.
Overall, don't miss this restaurant. If you go, get the 5:00 time slot and a table by the window so you cane ACTH the sunset over the ocean!
11/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
Found the restaurant on Trip Advisor. It had great reviews. We found the reviews to correct. The dishes were unique in their preparation. Great attention to detail. The accompanying vegetables to the fish that we had were as good as the featured item. Our wait person was outstanding in her attitude and attention.
