About Honu Seafood and Pizza - Lahaina

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.

Restaurant has a great view of the north side of the harbor. Tables are really close to each other, the restaurant is really loud and the prices are quite high for the quality of the food. Okay to try nce, but I would not go back.

I requested a table on Lanai when I made a reservation. No mention was made either in confirming reservation or when I actually arrived at the restaurant. All the lanai tables were occupied and was told I have to wait 45 minutes to move the table from inside to lanai, after I complained to the hostess.
The reason I requested table on Lanai was that our guest wanted to watch sunset and take photos while dining. I was disappointed with your customer service. Other than that your worker's service were very good.

The food here was great, we ordered pizza and salads. It was delicious! Our waitress was Connie and she was AMAZING! She was so kind and genuinely helpful and caring. The general manager leaves you feeling as if she is completely annoyed your are visiting her restaurant. I’m sure the owners wouldn’t approve. She manages Mala too, which we went to 2 nights prior and encounter her less than desirable attitude as well. My advice don’t the GM sway your from this place- the food is great- and seat in Connie’s section!

Always great. Consistent. Great ahi bruschetta. Joe’s eggs are not on menu but if you ask they still have. The baratta is wonderful.

Another excellent experience at Honu. Have enjoyed ahi bruschetta, fried oysters and great shrimp cocktail appetizers. Seafood pasta was excellent. Ono fish and chips remains excellent.

Honu was a dining pleasure! My husband voted them the best Mi Tai in town (after much personal research!). We will be going back to Honu when we return to Maui, very fine food.

Food was very good. Enjoyed the ahi bruschetta to start as well as a pizza half with rock shrimp mojo verse and half pepperoni. Fought over the side with the shrimp! Had the bikini blonde fish and chips. Batter was so nice and light and fish was fresh .

New Year’s Eve dinner with my wife
I ordered the Sea Bass Special: Served with asparagus and quinoa, it was the best fish I had had on the island in many years. My wife had the oysters served with a Cesar salad and we both share the gluten free dessert, chocolate - beet cake. It was fantastic
Our waitress was Connie, she went out of the way the make our dinner very special.
Every time we visit the island of Maui we come here!!!

Really tasty food and good value for money (hard to find on Maui). Hawaiian seafood with an Italian twist. I had the spicy seafood pasta and have to say the portion was really big (not complaining).

We ate on a cold & damp December evening, so the open-seating atmosphere turned out to be a slight negative (it was a bit cold).

Food was so-so, best thing from our group of 5 separate entrees seemed to be the Crab Mac&Cheese.

Staff seemed to have some sort of problem in kitchen, so one entree was ever-so-slightly late... just enough to notice.

I ordered the squash-coconut-soup which tasted neither like squash, nor like coconut, and was very very sweet. I just couldn’t eat it. But the waiter was very nice and took it off the bill. The Ahi Tuna was good, but it’s no magic to cut a raw tuna steak. Overall the place is highly overpriced and kinda loud. Maybe nice to sit at the bar and have a beer.

Honu remains 1 of our 2 favorite restaurants in Maui. With great food and great service in a waterfront location with sea turtles swimming by at lunchtime, it's hard to beat Honu. Love the kale salad, pizza, soup, etc. It's all delicious!

As Always the food was excellent. From the stating chickpeas to the fresh Ahi and crab the dishes were well seasoned, carefully cooked and so so rich.
However, the biggest disappointment were the drinks. The Mai Tai rivaled only that of the one on Alaska Airlines (overly sweet, concentrated, without properly blended light rum) and the other cocktail stung with its ethanol despite having the usually softening egg white.
