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.

Great lunch! All four of us had mahi-mahi, two of us via the fresh fish option, and the other 2, fish & chips. This was the best meal we had, during our week on Maui. Well worth the drive from Kihei.

Our table enjoyed the ahi tuna bruschetta, buretta, beet salad, kale salad, mahi-mahi dore style, the burger, seafood pasta. All excellent. We shared a lot of bites and we weren’t the least but disappointed in any of the dishes.

Honu staff, food and view is simply the best! Always welcoming, and cheerful! Comfort food, pizza and crab mac and cheese, the very best kale salad, and crab salad...great fish specials as well... The view can't be beat, except when you manage to snag a seat on the deck and the honu's swim by!

The ahi bruschetta here is amazing! This is the second time we’ve been to Honu and the food was great both times. My husband had the seafood pasta with medium spice and it was exactly the level of heat he wanted.

We are fortunate enough to be able to visit Maui often. And we never miss an opportunity to dine at Honu or one of its sister restaurants. They view of the sunset is remarkable, the food is consistently excellent and the service is always great. The service during our visit tonight was the best yet. Our server, Audrey, was charming as well as very knowledgeable about the menu items. She checked in with us often, but not annoyingly often, and everything was exactly as ordered. She is a great asset to an already excellent restaurant.

No better view for dinner on Maui and incredible place to watch the sunset. The burrata is fantastic, best fish and chips I have ever had and pizzas are great too. Craft cocktails and good local beer selection as well. Only semi-criticism is that the desserts are underwhelming. Still favorite restaurant on the island.

The pizzas are tasty. What we found a bit surprising were the prices. Most of the entrees are very expensive. It's hard to think about paying $36 or $39 for beer-battered fish and chips. They're available all over the island and usually average around $15 to $21. Even the fish entrees such as mahi-mahi were over $42. Again, really hard to think about paying $42 for a 5 or 6 oz. piece of fish when it's available all over the island for far less.
The restaurant had a lot of empty tables. My suggestion would be lower your prices a bit and you'll have a full house all evening. The food is tasty but the prices are too high.

where'e the beef ? or in our case where was the mahi mahi on my $29 grilled fish sandwich . i do not think there was even a three ounces, and i have never seen fish as thinly sliced outside of a sushi restaurant. i have ordered and enjoyed the sandwich in the two years that we have lived here, and have always received
a generous helping . my expectations were not met, and neither was my wife who also ordered the sandwich .

Really nice place. Server Gerry was great!! She even took our picture outside at sunset. The view of the sunset over Lana’i was fantastic and can be seen from almost anywhere in the restaurant. Food was delicious and drinks were cold. As an added bonus they have free valet parking after 4:30pm. Would go again next trip.

Tried this restaurant for the first time after reading about it in a Maui magazine. Had to book a later reservation given we were late in our trip booking the place after reading about it. Valet parking was a nice feature and the place was very busy. Overall a great place to eat and we will go back again.
