Hawaii Regional Cuisine
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.

    we reserved a table back in march 2022 for a 30th anniversary dinner and were super excited to have a great meal after we got our vows renewed. we travel all the way to hawaii and are ready for the big day and go on to their website to check the menu again and find out they are CLOSED!!! i call to confirm and find out why NO ONE contacted us and find out from their message they closed in april 2022. no calls, no emails, no nothing from anyone to inform us they would not be open. no one from open table apparently was informed either as i called them and they could give me no answer on what was going on. needless to say we were lucky we looked before we showed up to an empty, closed restaurant for our anniversary dinner. SO SO disappointed with both the restaurant and open table for the worst experience ever! if we ever get back to maui there is NO WAY we would eat here or recommend to anyone.

    Booked a June reservation back in March and found out from Google and other reviewers that the restaurant was closed. Why OpenTable didn’t notify anyone with an existing reservation after the restaurant closed is beyond me… had I known earlier, I could have tried booking somewhere else.

    The restaurant was closed. Apparently for at least 2 Months. Neither restaurant nor Open Table advised our party of 8 Even got confirmation email the day before. Had to scramble to find a restaurant on a Friday night for 8 in Wailea. Ended up being pizza night! There has to be a way to catch this when restaurants close. Shame on Five Palms for not caring enough to advise Us.

    It was closed! Why does OpenTable offer reservations to restaurants that are closed? I was so excited to secure this reservation when planning our trip only to find out when we got here the restaurant had closed permanently until it finds a new location. :(

    Wir hatten dieses Restaurant gebucht weil wir direkt nach der Hochzeit dort essen wollten. Das Restaurant war allerdings schon seit einiger Zeit geschlossen und wir standen vor der geschlossenen Tür, obwohl wir einen Tag vorher unsere Reservierung bestätigt haben. Nie wieder werden wir über dieses Portal buchen!!!!

    This restaurant is CLOSED. I am surprised neither 5 Palms OR OpenTable emailed me to warn us. OpenTable even sent a confirmation email one day prior to confirm "are you coming?" Called 5 Palms and you get a recording they are closed and "hope to open at a new location soon." Had to change our plans last minute. Not good.

    Unfortunately, the restaurant we booked has been closed since April 1, 2022. No one from the restaurant nor Open Table bothered to contact us of this rather significant change. We were unable to find an alternative for our sitting time to watch the Maui sunset and ended up eating dinner in some dive (the food was good at least). Not quite how we thought we would be spending our anniversary dinner. Oh well. This was certainly the last time we will use Open Table for our dinner reservations. Regards, M. Davidson

    Unfortunately between the time I booked this restaurant and the date of our reservation it had closed. Although I was not notified of the restaurant closure and the Open Table alerts continued to come through as per normal. It wasn’t until we were getting a ride from the hotel car service for our dinner reservation that the valet alerted us to the fact that the restaurant had closed. So disappointing. So we had to scramble to find another restaurant with availability last minute, no small feat in Wailea with a party of 5. Thankfully Matteo’s accommodated our party and was fantastic, highly recommended!!

    We had made a reservation through open table, but were greeted and initially sat at poor table choice. Ultimately we were seated at an improved location. The staff were quite overwhelmed , potentially due to staff shortage. Three of our four meals were very good. The fourth was terrible, but it was clear that the staff were not able to cope with rectifying the substandard meal.

    I LOVE the 5 Palms!! I was very sad to hear that it is closing this up coming Thursday !!!! I can’t believe it!!!! I have been going there for years as I am a flight attendant. I hear it is the Monkey Pod that is coming in to replace it. I have gone to the Monkey Pod up the street and I was NEVER very impressed!!! Pricy and just ok in service and in food. Wishing the new people the best, BUT the 5 Palms will be greatly missed!

    We heard not bad things about this place, but we made the reservation a while ago and wanted a date night for our last night in Maui. We would have been better off going to Safeway and getting hot bar food for dinner. This was one of the worst meals I've ever had at a restaurant. Coconut shrimp were rubbery and overdone and the papaya tasted like butternut squash. Save your money on poke and just go to Foodland (where the quality is better too). Also, the poke looked nothing like the photos on Yelp. It came deconstructed in a three-section platter - about 1/3lb poke in one part, plain white unseasoned rice in the middle, and some ginger and faux wasabi on the far part. For $30!! My kale salad was soggy, as in a puddle of water at the bottom of my plate. A couple slimey kale pieces in there too. My boyfriend's burger was incredibly salty... that was a first for us. The side of lemon garlic aioli was just plain mayo. We paid full price for virgin drinks, both of which were full of ginger fibers from the unstrained ginger puree. Our table was literally at the top of the stairs to the pool and beach, meaning anyone coming up those stairs to the hotel above had to walk around us. Plus, we were very far from the beach view. There were probably a dozen other tables open, and they stayed that way for the night, so not sure why we were given the bad table. The tablecloth was covered in stains and dried drips of food. My water glass had sediment or sand in the bottom. Do not go here.
