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.

One of the best things about making a trip to the west side! Always plan a stop here for Ahi Bruschetta!

We come every year as the food is excellent
I will never order another specialty drink
This is the third time you wonder if there is any liquor in the drink at all. Short glass filled with crushed is and no flavor of alcohol. All for 13.75
I was better off with the manhattan as no ice and could not skimp on the alcohol
I would tell my friends not to order any of the drinks. Except beer or wine
Very disappointing

Here on Maui and heard this place was delicious. Honestly, the entire vibe was disappointing. Loud, obnoxious drunk people who ruined the evening for us. Maybe make a new policy about drunks-food was mediocre and overpriced. It was hard to enjoy any aspect of the evening where we were seated. Wouldn’t return for a second try.

The ambiance of this restaurant was amazing. The fact that you are right by the ocean and can hear the waves crashing so close was quite the experience. The food was so good. The service was a bit slow but overall an amazing dining experience

Honu is always at the top of my restaurant list when I’m in Maui. This year it was quite the disappointment. They no longer have The Hibiscus Cooler because per our server they can no longer get the hibiscus to put in it. Well, does it have to have a hibiscus? Btw there are jarred hibiscus available at Foodland across the street. The fish dore was very heavy on the sauce. The beets and ricotta were just meh, as was everything else. Then there was the bill-$350 for 4 adults and one child. No problem if food was good but it wasn’t. Not sure Honu is still on my must-do list.

This was our 2nd visit to Honu in a week.
The first time was such a positive experience we
decided to return while still on vacation on Maui.
We wanted to try the pizza but we had previously
enjoyed the fish so we compromised.
Ordered a kale salad with fish to share and then
shared a pizza - half mushroom and half shrimp.
The server was very encouraging about this approach
and timed it all perfectly. Everything was delicious
and interesting. My only suggestion would be that,
for the cost of the pizza, there could be more shrimp
and definitely more mushrooms. The flavors were
delicious but the ingredients could be more numerous.
The salad was as yummy and high quality as two nights
previously
Next time on Maui we’ll go back. Reserve your table
early so you aren’t disappointed!

We made this reservation several months before going as it was our joint 65th birthdays- we had also requested an ocean view table- we arrived 10 minutes early of our reservation time. There was one other couple who arrived at the same time that was given the last table with Oceanview.
We were never acknowledged having a birthday and did not receive an ocean view table.
This restaurant was a regular go to place for us when we were in Maui but it won’t be in the future

We decided to try Honu after seeing good reviews online - we were early for our reservation but they were able to seat our party of four right away.
The food was good- we ordered the ahi Bruchetta- the red got amount of balsamic and rye bread to match the ahi- so good. Shared the seafood pasta with the hubby and it was plenty of food. I had ordered the butternut squash soup but it wasn’t needed. Had the mojito- crisp and perfect after a day in the sun.

"Practice Aloha" is their mantra - and you can feel an authentic island vibe here, while you have a great meal. Located right along the beach, this restaurant has an interesting menu that offers New England clam chowder alongside super fresh Poke. They feature pizza, as well as a great selection of gluten-free options, and super flavorful salads. I recommend the Kale salad with Ahi Tataki Sashimi. Service was a bit spotty, but our waitress was super friendly and welcoming.

Honu is our favorite restaurant. We have probably eaten there 50 times and we’ve never had a bad meal. There mushroom pizza and their Ahi sausage pizzas are fantastic. They make their own Ahi sausage for the pizza. Yum!
