5 Palms is an open-air, oceanfront restaurant, nestled inside the Mana Kai Resort on Keawakapu Beach. We offer breakfast and lunch daily from 8:00am to 2:30pm, focusing on unique twists to classic breakfast & lunch favorites. Dinner is served nightly from 5:00pm to 9:00pm and focuses on the bounty of fresh fish and locally grown vegetables that are available year round on Maui. We also offer one of the best Happy Hours on the South Side of the Island from 3:00pm to 9:00pm daily. Happy Hour features great drink specials, and half-priced pupus and sushi. We invite you to come and relax, while the gentle tradewind breezes stir your soul and the breathtaking sunsets steal your cares away.

Dissapointed locals. Took Mom for 75th birthday. Noted on Reservation. Wasn't communicated to waitress. Epic fail as other 2 tables next to us had birthdays and were sang to and given comp dessert with candle. Cousins fish had bones so sent back..next one came out with same issue. THEN the Manager called THEM FIBERS SAYING THEY BUY THE mong Chong frozen and precut/ prepped. He was rude and dismissive. SMH. Never asked if I or my Mom wanted second cocktail. Took over 30 min to even order a cocktail. We come here often for Brunch. Will stick to that. DO NOT bother with dinner.

Beautiful Views of Keawakapu Beach, Molokini and Kaho'olawae, along with great food, nice people and Kama'aina discounts - can it get any better than that!!

Delicious food, polished service and a gorgeous setting (be sure to be there for sunset and ask for an outdoor table). Social distancing was well executed during the pandemic. Happily, we were offered the three course sunset special (salad, grilled monchong, desert for $39) even though our reservation was for 6 PM and the website indicated that the special was only available for the 5:00 and 5:30 seatings. Additional, we received happy hour pricing on our beers ($4 instead of $6). This is a great Kihei restaurant for special occasions.

In this COVID-19 times our luncheon here was excellent. I was treated to a Pineapple creme brûlee that was WOW. Sitting outdoors under shade overlooking the beautiful beach, I appreciate 5Palms for allowing me to celebrate a special occasion in a safe environment!

Great setting, good food, nice service. We dined on a Sunday evening when a jazz group was playing two tables away. While the music was mellow, it was impossible to converse with my wife over dinner due to the music's volume. We would definitely come back for dinner, but not on a Sunday night.

The service was very attentive and friendly, the menu covers all tastes and they had a couple of specials, one was fresh monchong that was perfectly prepared. I had the lamb chops that were also great. We felt 100% safe with distancing and sanitation. Prices are reasonable and a good value. Yes, we are coming back

We were greeted warmly, and seated at the best table.

It was a celebration of our 37th anniversary. Our daughter (unbeknownst to us) had called the restaurant ahead to make sure we had a wonderful evening - and we did - from drinks to dessert!

Our server Toby was so sweet and accommodating. The food was good. And the sunset was award winning. This was only our second dinner out in six long months - and surpassed our expectations.
We will be back, and will talk up 5 Palms to our friends!

The server was not attentive, my guest had specific requests of her dish that he ‘ignored’? And when pointed out to him he made no attempt to commiserate not correct it. Never asked if we wanted another beverage. We will request to not have him again.

We’re going back this Sunday.

Even from the check-in, it was a negative. There seem to be trouble finding our reservation. We were seated at a lovely table outside with no placesettings. When the server brought them, he just set them down and I set the table myself. There was life music so after ordering our drinks we requested to be moved inside because conversation was not possible and it was a very special birthday party. The calamari appetizer with soggy-even the salad was wilted. I could tell that the food was going to be disappointing so three of us ordered hamburgers. Clearly, the quality of meat was not good. The hamburger was greasy. The prices have gone up considerably and I understand that the cost of doing business in tough times such as this can’t be easy. As much as we want to support our restaurants that are open, it was a very disappointing experience for evening dining. The entire top of the table was wet from the condensation of the water in our server never bothered once to address it. I asked for extra napkins to sop up the pools of water. Five Palm’s restaurant has the view going for it. Breakfast is always enjoyable; but our special occasion for a 93rd birthday will be a do over. We were extremely disappointed. They did bring her a complementary dessert. Enjoy the view.

Come for the sunset and service, stay for the food. Delicious Hawaiian resort fare served under swaying palms and one of the best sunset views on the island. Our visit ran a little long, but the staff was attentive and we enjoyed the sunset - which wasn't the same view twice. While I am interested in exploring the other entrees, I will suggest you try the poke appetizer, so ono! It's a spicy/salty must have.
