Honu Seafood and Pizza - Lahaina
My wife and I keep going back to the Ellman trio in Lahaina. He no longer owns Mala Ocean Tavern but Honu and Frida’s are still his. The Mala cookbook is available for purchase at Honu and includes the kale salad with preserved lemon dressing. We always have preserved lemons in our refrigerator at home but there is nothing like having this salad served where we were first introduced to it. We were disappointed at first that the Mac and Cheese did not come with crab but it is on the dinner menu and can be ordered for lunch, which is what we did. It is dangerously rich and should only be eaten for lunch. We changed our dinner plans and had only a light watermelon salad.
Lovely. View is amazing. Fish and chips are awesome.
This restaurant is way over priced. The food is just regular diner food. Nothing special about it. Yet the price is completely out of wack. My husband ordered a crab cake sandwich. It came out with a small hot dog bun with a few pieces of crab meat. Price $39. They even charge you $2 additional for a small side salad. We paid $41 for a tiny sandwich and a few bite of greens. You can get the same thing from a dinner for $10. They change $4.4 for an ice tea and $14 for a piece of cake that is loaded with sugar. We felt robbed after walking out of this restaurant having spent almost $150. We will never go to this restaurant again and do not recommend anyone to go.
Much too expensive, too far from the city (nothing around). No real seafood pizza (nor hawaiien) except a shrimps pizza for 30 dollars which did not taste well
Best chef ever!
This is a gem or a restaurant, menu is perfect, food is so well prepared, views and location right up there. We just love this place. Do try the Spanish Octopus, and the seafood pasta along with the Ahi Bruschetta.
Awesome as usual. My favorite.
We were seated on the patio and enjoyed a beautiful sunset. Our server was friendly and efficient. Our salads were absolutely delicious, with the freshest of ingredients. The salad selections at Honu are not what you find at most restaurants. Very unusual- I love the combinations of fresh produce and seasonings! My husband always selects their beet salad. Truly amazing, both to the eye and to the palate. My Greek salad was also fresh and delicious. We enjoyed our salads with their Margarita Pizza, thin crust and perfect with our salads. Our drinks were also delicious! We have never yet been disappointed with our meals at Honu. We have also had their delicious entrees on previous visits. Again, not your usual preparations with their use of fresh produce and selections of seafood or meat. Highly recommend!
We stumbled upon this place last minute and are so glad we did. Our server was wonderful, the food was great (get the ahi bruschetta!) and the ambience was perfect. We sat right on the water and watched the sunset!
Yummy! This place knows how to prepare some delicious food!
We got the crab Mac n cheese for an appetizer for the table to share, it was delicious. We also got the oysters, oh and the ahi bruschetta, which was great too....I joked I could have had 5 more pieces for my dinner.
Everyone got something different, and everything was great. The Greek pizza was yummy as was the Greek salad (the salad was served without lettuce, the authentic style Greek salad - but our server brought us some lettuce to make it more Americanized. Then it was perfect. Dressing was light and great flavor) The shrimp and grits was incredible and I had the ahi lifeguard...heaven.
The turtle cheesecake was a great end to a fantastic meal.
The views are spectacular from every table, the service was top notch and the food, delicious. It was a fantastic meal on Maui.
BTW, don’t let the small somewhat deceiving building from the outside put you off, go in, see the smiling faces and grab a table. Well worth it!
This place is very deceiving from the outside don’t be fooled. The inside is adorable and the views spectacular. The food was excellent and even had a couple of vegan options which I liked. My appetizer was a butternut squash and coconut soup. It was so flavorful and delicious. We were seated at the waters edge just in time for the sunset which was breath taking. I highly recommend this place when visiting Maui
Perfect place to have our “last night of vacation” meal. We chose to sit outside even though it was cooler inside. Turned out to be the best decision. There was a nice ocean breeze and lots of big waves crashing nearby (high tide). Our waitress, Mama Green, was very personable and offered excellent selections. We ordered Ahi bruschetta, raw oysters and pizza that was half rock shrimp and half mushroom. The mushroom pizza had a nice lavender finish. I was tempted to drizzle honey on top. If you like piña colada’s (and getting caught in the rain), lava flow is a must!
Loved it! Oyster Shooters are amazing, fish is fresh, everything is top notch. If we lived here we would go every day!
Every time we come to Maui we have dinner at Honu last night , and it’s always great. I have to say that this time was the best .
Monica did an outstanding job taking care of us and figuring out what our grandson will eat better then we could , got him a complimentary passion fruit soda , we all had a great dinner.
Fish is always great , but also the salad was very good. ( star fruit and a new Greek)
If you are sitting in front raw the sunset is fantastic!
We will keep coming. Thank you!
Best crab Louie in the world. Don’t forget to order their unbelievable macadamia cranberry bread. Just delicious.
I’m vegan so Honu has options for me. The food is fresh and inventive. Also they have a large gluten free menu. I’ve been eating here and Mala for years. They never disappoint.
We sat on the patio. The surf was awesome. The food was amazing, especially the dory style fish. It melted in our mouths. We had the nicest waitress ever. Thanks for a wonderful evening.
Food was good
Server was great
This was our second time in Maui and second time dining at Honu. We really enjoyed it the first time but this time far exceeded our last experience. We had a table right next to the water and just before sunset, they raised the shades so we could see the sun set over the water. The food was very good, the service was excellent. Our waiter was very attentive. We live the casual atmosphere and the sunset was the Icing on the cake. Definitely recommend Honu, try to request table outside on the water.
Such a wonderful meal! Connie was our server and she was amazing! So friendly and attentive and informative. The food was incredible, delicious flavour combinations. We sat outside, which was really hot, but totally worth it for the incredible sunset view. A beautiful evening.
The best. Top qualitiy good and flavors. Patio view is spectacular.
Best pizza on the island- don’t listen to anyone else.
Dinner at Honu was incredible! The food was delicious, very flavorful and our service could not be beat. Highly recommend!
Service was wonderful! Good gluten free pizza. Huge hamburger and very good sweet potato fries. Sit outside by the water. Free valet parking!
Free valet parking was nice touch. Staff were all friendly and helpful. We had table right on waterfront
with an amazing view--shades kept the heat of sun from being too much, and these were raised once the sun went down. Food was delicious and portions were just right. Go, you won't regret it!
Food was worse we ever had. Chowder like 5 clams rest potatoes n bland. Pizza dried nothing spectacular. Don't waste your money super over price. Macncheese nasty.
The fish was so good. Great flavor. Perfectly cooked potatoes, fries were so tasty! The ono fish and chips were perfectly cooked and the sauce was even better. The Mahi Mahi was well done. Sauce was delicious. Service was prompt, thorough, and water refilled. Ambiance was good. The velets were polite, but drove crazily. One guy nearly backed into a little girl and then flew into oncoming traffic narrowly missing a mustang.
We ate at Honu twice during our 7 day stay- the food is THAT GREAT!
Wow, if you love fresh seafood, pizzas and even Mac &cheese you will love Honu. The view and setting are amazing perfect place for a sunset. Try the Spanish octopus you will love it.
Honu never disappoints! I love sharing dinners or a casual lunch with my friends...especially a birthday! The entire service staff (and even the owner) will actually sing "happy birthday" while bringing their wonderful Raspberry Lilikoi Tart to your table! Fabulous memories were created for both of us sharing a spectacular dinner. Mahalo to all of you at Honu.
Fabulous! Loved everything about it
Good food and great sunset 🌅 loud not a quiet sit down dinner would recommend
Loved it, and our server (the gal from New York) was awesome.
Loved this place! Our server was GREAT!
Everyone was very nice & the food was good but overpriced.
Pricey but delicious! Weird name Awesome food and great sunset views over the water.
We have been here before and always try to dine here when we are on Maui. This time we have lunch and it was fresh and cooked perfectly. Service was great with a friendly and attentive staff. The restaurant is in an unassuming little bldg along the water front. But the quality of the food and service is wonderful. Lunch for 2 which includes a half bottle of wine will run you about $100.
Great location because it is right on the water. But, the bonus is that the food is good - especially for touristy Maui. I also appreciate the emphasis on "Live Aloha!" Our server demonstrated this and I believe the rest of the staff did too. I too, live in a touristy beach town in San Clemente, and I always try to spot tourists and send them to places in which they will be well fed and cared for. I felt the same attitude here. Great place and I will return...
The food was very good. We expected a better view of the ocean, but were seated in the main dining room where we could barely see it. Loud and noisy, very little atmosphere. Food was very good but very overpriced. Limited menu with ten entrees left us to get the burgers and fish sandwiches. They had a crab sandwich for $39, a bit ridiculous. The buns on the burger and fish sandwiches were excellent. Overall a 3 star restaurant, ok to try but I’ll never be back.
