Seafood
Chef Mark and Judy Ellman have opened a seafood shack, right next door to Mala Ocean Tavern. Honu Seafood and Pizza also sits right on the rocks of the Pacific Ocean, with 50 beers, an organic and eclectic wine list, and an extensive scotch and rum selection. Mark and Judy have created an environment that soothes the savage beasts craving of oysters on the half shell, steamed clams and mussels, Crab Louis salad, a selection of Hawaiian seafood, as well as fish from the West and East Coasts of the US. Honu also features a 900 degree brick-oven turning out artisinal pizzas. Come to Honu, drink a local Micro-brewed beer ,eat some freshly shucked oysters on the half shell, and let your eyes and soul relax into the Pacific. Honu, like Mala, is run by Mark and Judy Ellman and their two daughters Ariana and Michelle. Remember, we always try and practice Aloha. Please come and practice with us.

Aloha.

Food is always fresh and delicious. Valet parking is a big plus. Staff is experienced and attentive. Wait times for the kitchen can be long so don’t be in a hurry at dinner. Ahi bruschetta is the best appetizer on Maui. Can’t get any closer to the water for dining.

Food is normally not inexpensive on Maui but forgo the expense and enjoy your visit. However, value for your dollar is relatively easy for virtually everyone to understand and unfortunately the value is lacking here. It's just seriously overpriced for what you get. While it tasted good, the selection was very, very limited. We informed them that we were celebrating our 50 th wedding anniversary and it was met with a less heartfelt response than one would typically anticipate. Overall, very disappointing for a bill of $135 for three adults. There are others to choose from!

Outstanding at usual. Great seat by the water, Erica did a fantastic job with our service. Great Martini. The fish Dore was delicious. Only comment: seafood chowder needed salt and pepper layered in while it was being prepared. Adding spices at the table took away from the fine ingredients in the soup.

We had the octopus and lamb riblet appetizers. Very good. Fresh fish of the day was had by two and one person had the ahi with grits and all loved their choices. Two kids had the margherita pizza and were very happy. I had the mushroom pizza and it was great. Fantastic waitress too. .definitely recommend.

We had an okay experience. The food was okay, service was okay. The views were lovely and my cocktail was great. Children’s menu was wildly overpriced ($14 for pasta with butter!) and the $21 burger came with prefrozen fries. We wouldn’t return.

The food is consistently good and the service exceeds expectations. Drinks are pricey, but very good. The lamb riblets is the best appetizer in my opinion. There are enough to make it a meal along with one of their awesome salads.

Overpriced. Nice people and good service but much too pricey fur the quality. Underdone burger, sashimi salad was $30; slow drink service due to crowd. If you want the whole fish it is known for by locals, call ahead. They usually don’t have it, as we were disappointed to discover after we waited 30 minutes later Than our reservation

We love this restaurant - off the beaten path! Always great food and fabulous service. Their menu is unique in that they have Crab Louis, Shrimp Louis, pizza and oysters all on the same menu. But my favorite is the Ahi Brushetta.......I always get it!! Thank you Mark Ellman for a terrific restaurant. Friendly servers too!!

The food at Honu was outstanding, and the service added significantly to the experience. One example: we'd already decided to order a particular starter when our waitperson recommended the ahi tuni bruschetta. She was that confident in the quality of the bruschetta - and she was right. It's truly impressive when a restaurant can feature an unusual dish (bruschetta made with ahi tuna) that is done so well that it trumps far more conventional offerings. Also, the Cuban mojito I had was the best I've had since the Fronterra Grill in Chicago. One suggestion: the beachfront location is especially nice when you can see the water. We ate at night, and although listening to the waves was great, it's not quite as memorable as watching the waves.
