About

This restaurant is permanently closed. 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.

We had a terrific shrimp pizza after paying an extra $12 for a double shrimp portion. Tasted great! Excellent service.

The shrimp in the shrimp cocktail were huge and wonderful. Really enjoyed our (2) pizzas as well. We will return. Easy parking in the lot of the nearby Safeway shopping center

Amazing meal! Had a fab martini in the bar while we waited for our table. Had great service all the things for apps and salads are very shareable. Ordered a pasta & pizza to also split which were both good, but the apps were the highlight!

This restaurant is always a must visit when we come to Maui. The ahi bruschetta is amazing and my favorite dish. Service is wonderful and all the other food is always delicious.

The food is great here. It is noisy as the building is a bit rustic. It doesn’t look like much from the road but make a reservation. There is little parking but they do have valet parking.

There is a ton of great food on the island. But if I were to have my single favorite item, it would be the Ahi Bruschetta at Honu. Amazing!!!!!

Food is always great at Honu, would strongly recommend to all. We had a group of 6 locals who enjoy dining by the sea as well as excellent seafood. Only sanfu was a different bottle of wine was served than what we ordered, but true to their excellent reputation Honu made it right, so we were all happy and well fed! Clam chowder is the best on the Island, with real in-shell clams! Abalone is always a treat and is real hard to find any where on Maui or the mainland. As Mikey says "Try it you will like it!"

Really enjoyed this little place situated perfectly on the north end of Front Street right on the ocean in Lahaina. Away from the shopping madness. To die for sunset view table only steps from the water. Nice wine and cocktail menu. Had a mushroom based pizza and Caesar salad, both on the smallish side, but enough for 2 but leaving room for dessert. Service was very friendly and fast. Read some reviews complaining about service and menu cost problems, but experience quite the opposite. I would recommend this place without hesitation. Free valet parking is a plus as parking near Front Street can be very difficult and pricey.

We really enjoyed this place. The food was excellent. The only small miss was the seafood chowder but we loved the oysters, ahi sausage pizza and the crab Mac n cheese. It was a little pricey but what we expect on Maui. The service was great! Friendly and prompt. The waitress even gave us kamaaina discount after she had already rang us up when we mentioned we live on Oahu. Next time I will try to book earlier and get a table by the window but there still wasn’t a bad table in the house.

We were back again for a three year old’s birthday, and everything was perfect! We had a yummy bottle of Stolpman Syrah, a 2 pound whole popeo fish, the shrimp and asparagus pasta, the ahi bruschetta, and fish and chips for the little guy. Everything was excellent! And everyone came to sing for our birthday boy! And of course, the setting is fabulous.

This is an incredibly expensive restaurant for the cracks in its veneer. Sitting outside on the deck with the ocean right there is fantastic—until it starts to rain and you feel water on you even though there is cover over your head. The wind blows paper napkins off your lap constantly—shouldn't there be heavier napkins or some sort of weight provided? The tables outside and inside seem cheap and uninspiring compared to the quality of food being served. The cocktails are not innovative, but that is true across the island. Service was endearing and earnest, but spotty.
