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.

A beautiful restaurant at the ocean’s edge, amazing food ( the ahi bruschetta is to die for!) and Amanda our server was lovely and so helpful.
We were fortunate enough to have a two-top on the inner side of the rail over the ocean. It was a crowded night and my only discomfort was that it was so loud from guest conversation and some shrill kids, that my companion and I could barely hear each other.

Smaller restaurant right on the water. Prompt seating with reservation. Very scenic from every seat. Great parking valet. A little overpriced as the restaurant itself is pretty simple. However the food is simply outstanding. Fish, quinoa and asparagus was $45 though there are less expensive menu items.

The food is fabulous. So fresh and tasty. The octopus is the best ever. Shrimp Louie presentation and flavors are wonderful and don’t forget the Mai Tai’s - everything we had was exceptional. Tables by the ocean are the best but anywhere in the restaurant offers wonderful views. A definite visit is in order when in Maui.

Can't beat the ocean-side location and shabby chic ambiance. It is a chatty friendly place...not a quiet dinner spot.

We love this place. This is our second time to visit. My wife thinks it's the best restaurant on Maui. The wait staff were great, good wine list, great food and the sunsets are magnificent. I had the Ahi bolognese and it was wonderful. My wife's local fish dish was done to perfection. If we're in Maui again, we will definitely have dinner here.

We have never been to Honu before. My wife and I had a fabulous dinner. The staff was terrific. Food a bit pricey, but very well worth it. We will definitely be back when we come to Maui. Probably one of the best restaurants we have been to on the Hawaiian Islands.

Great venue and really nice, friendly service. Five stars if not for the prices. I know it's Maui but still, $35 for a Cesar salad with a Mahi filet? Likewise the brioche appetizer, while quite good, just two cost $19. I do still recommend though.

My daughter had gluten-free pizza which didn’t taste like cardboard, so that was a plus. I had the ahi bruschetta which was tasty. However, my son had the sashimi. He remarked as we left the restaurant that it didn’t taste just right, not fresh. Later in the evening, he became very sick. Lesson learned: go with your instinct!

We loved Honu. Audrey our server is amazing. She recommended some great cocktails & food choices. Everyone had fabulous meals. Ahi Bruscetta, calamari & seafood chowder to start. Fish & chips, burger, crab salad, green goddess salad with grilled fish. Had to roll us out of the restaurant as our opus were so full, but extremely happy. Maui Real Estate Guru
