A word from Roy's - Kaanapali
Welcome to Roy's Ka'anapali! Since opening "the original" Roy's Hawaii Kai in 1988, I have set out to explore "new directions," blending classic European cooking techniques with unique influences of Asia and the Pacific. Guided by the freshest ingredients and my own sense of freedom, the menu is constantly evolving.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Have dined at Roy's in Ka'anapali many times (including when it was located in Kahana) and have always had a good experience. The current location is an improvement. Food is always good as is the service. We do wish there was someway to lower the noise level a bit in the dining room."

  • "We always go to Roy's for special occasions when we are in Hawaii. Whether we are on Maui or Kauai we know we will enjoy our evening. They go out if the way to make your visit special."

  • "Everything from the cocktails, appetizers and entrees had wonderful flavor and unique twists. The fish was like butter and the desserts were incredible (go for the chocolate souffle and the banana crisp!) We enjoyed every bite! The staff was very attentive and friendly."

  • "We have been to Roy's many times.This Roy's is by far the best.It was our 28 anniversary,& they treated us like royalty. We were congratulated by the hostess first,brought a little gift from the the chef,and treated to a special dessert.My husband had the risotto with lobster,scallops,&fish,all of which were moist & perfectly cooked.I had the mahijiki which was moist, tender & just lovely. My son ordered the meat-loaf, which he loved & I had later as leftovers-it was amazing!Best for last:our waiter. I'm sad to say I can't remember his name, because he made it all perfect. Not once were we without water,wine, etc.His menu knowledge was spot on-he was friendly and fun.he was that last little ingredient to perfection! Also, soufflé=heaven!"

  • "This place was absolutely fabulous. The staff was awesome. From the hostess to the bartender to our server. My wife and I could not stop talking about our experience. The food was out of this world!!! The prices were perfect. We can't wait to come back!"

  • "Great seafood . No ambience, looks like Denny's. Loud and hated the bar in the middle of the room. Ok for the golf scene it must cater to."

  • "We had reservations for a few days via OpenTable and when we got to to the restaurant, the hostess steered us to the worst table available even though many tables were open siting the excuse that we were only two and all the open tables were for 4, even though the first table offered was set for 4. We had to request another table and they reluctantly gave us a much better table after a long delay. This is a real downer to start a meal and a really bad habit of some restaurants. Even though the food and wait staff were excellent, the large open setting of the restaurant makes the noise and commotion level almost unbearable for the price we pay to eat there. Coupled with our hostess experience, I have to downgrade my rating for Roy's."

  • "We made a reservation and had to wait an additional 20 minutes. But once we sat down the food was amazing! And the waitress took good care of us. Not saying it is a kids restaurant, but we took our child and they had a special menu and looked after his needs."

  • "Long time fans of Roy's, this was our first time at the new Kaanapali venue, a real improvement. The golf course/sunset view are great (no ocean) and the upscale vibrant atmosphere is classic Roy's. Our dinner was excellent: Seared ahi sashimi appetizer, seafood stew, crusted monchong all exceeded expectations. Good wine list, with reasonable and upscale options. Service was attentive though wine pouring could have been more timely. Chocolate mousse dessert was just average. Easy walk from the Kaanapali hotels and condos. Kids menu available, and they seemed to handle groups OK, but the restaurant is a bit upscale for small children. Signage is a bit lacking so if you're trying to find it, the restaurant is in the clubhouse. G"

  • "We've been to all the good places in kaanapali during our 8 day vacation in maui and this place really stood out. Exceptional food and service!"

  • "Lunch was delicious and we go there often. Dinner is a gourmands dream. Chef Joey Macadangdang and the entire staff of Roys are the best of the best. If you're a visitor, this is a must."

  • "Roy's was a longstanding favourite of ours for years in Kahana, but as we have been away frm the Islands for a couple of years it was great to find Roys again in Ka'anapali. We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary and the food, wine, and service were all top notch. Appetizer portions were larger than expected, and suitable for sharing - so check with your wait staff or you will be at risk of over-ordering! The kids loved the chocolate souffle and pineapple upside-down cake. Wonderful evening from start to finish."
    Dined on 7/31/2014
  • "Great staff, good food, setting.....OK. Not very tropical or elegant. Other Roys on the main land have a much better setting. We dined just before sunset, and the blinds had to be closed, so no view whatsoever."
    Dined on 7/31/2014
  • "I am a seasoned steakaholic and I had the best steak ever - seasoned rib eye. My wife's trio of fish was excellent. The chocolate soufflé was outstanding. If it was not our last nite there - we would have been going back again."
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "The restaurant has a golf course view and not your typical ocean view as many restaurant in Maui have. The food is superb! Their menu changes daily depending on the catch and there are some signature entrees that stay the same. The seafood is delicate and fresh."
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "Not on par with any other Roy's I've dined at before. Food was tasty but way too high priced for such a horrible location. The restaurant is on a golf course inside what probably was the golf course clubhouse restaurant. Cheap furnishings. Way below what should be the standard at Roy's."
    Dined on 7/28/2014
  • "Waitress was expressionless no passion about the food. Did not have wine knowledge when asked about a wine, she said she never tried it. That is not an answer I expected at a restaurant that requries the women to wear mens shirts and ties. If you can't remember the tasting notes, have a cheat sheet and read it to me. TS restaurants that are more casual than Roy's even have this. Also BEFORE our entree's were delivered the dessert menu was dropped. It was 8:45 pm I hardly think they were going to turn our table again so what is the rush? Will sit at the Bar next time like we usually do, bartenders are GREAT. Table service was a huge dissapointment."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "We were looking for a great place for dinner for our last night in Maui and lucked upon Roy's. The wait staff was fantastic, the view was incredible overlooking the golf course ... just wish we'd been there to see the sun go down over the hotels. All of the food was fantastic as well, really excellent. They also offer you a free desert if you check-in on Yelp."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Every year on our pilgrimage to Kaanapali we stop in at Roys for a great meal. We have found little difference in the quality of food or service since they moved from Kahana years ago to their new location on the golf course here in Kaanapali. We have always experienced great service that is attentive to every detail and great tasting food. The place gets busy each night so if you are looking for quiet and romantic, it is best to have an early or late dinner. If you love chocolate, never miss the chocolate lava cake. It is over the top. The prices are significantly higher than the mainland, but it's Hawaii. Enjoy."

  • "The food was outstanding; best fish ever. The meatloaf was tasty and light. The dessert was better than we expected!"

  • "We have eaten at the Roy's Ko'Olina many times and love it. We took a trip to Maui, so we decided to try the Roy's at Ka'anapali. It was as wonderful as the Roy's we are accustomed to. Service was excellent! Food was even better. We look forward to trying out more Roy's as we come across them."

  • "We had recently visited the Roy's in Vegas, which we loved. The food here was just as delicious, but I thought the service and ambience weren't quite as good. We still enjoyed it though."

  • "We were here in Maui with our daughter and her husband who had just spent two weeks relaxing after he returned from his deployment in Afghanistan. They live in Nashville and we live in Seattle so it was the first time we had seen them since he returned and we wanted this to be a very special night and Roys did not disappoint. Our waiter who did not know we were celebrating was informative and friendly the rest of the staff was very attentive. The food was amazing. We each got something different and decided everything was great but decided the Blackened Tuna and the Mejiki were hands down the best."

We have dined before at Roy's, in Rancho Mirage, CA; we were not disappointed at the Kaanapali location. We'll certainly visit this location again. We highly recommend!"

    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "As always with Roy's, you get a great menu with a moderate price. This particular site is not the usual ambience that exists at most Roy's locations. You get the feeling that they converted a Denny's into an upscale restaurant. The place is loud and there is not the fine dining feel of other sites, but if you are taking the whole tribe, and are looking for a good meal and very good service then it is the right place. Definitely not the romantic, or fine dining experience."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "They should put a disclaimer on this location of "Roy's" because it is not Roy's! It is a Dirty, dank 80's country club lunch room.... With no view and a limited menu. Food was served on plane white cafeteria plates with no style. Strange. Roy should close this location."

  • "I eat at Roy's every year that I come to Hawaii. I've been coming for the last 18 years. It never gets old!! I love that restaurant and the food."

  • "We had a reservation for 7:30 on a Thursday evening. When we arrived there were three hostesses and one said the wait would be 5-10 minutes. No problem...until we waited and waited and waited. Finally seated after half an hour with no apology or sincere care. No manager on duty. Ashame when the good was delicious and we were repeat customers. Not sure if we will return to this Roy's as they don't know how to properly accept (read decline) walk-in customers when they already have customers with reservations."
