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.

Aloha.

That ahi bruschetta is probably the best thing I’ve ever eaten. Our server was amazing too. This place has serious Aloha and it’s why we go back every time we come to Maui. Keep doing what you’re doing! We love you guys!

Honu's in the middle of Lahaina's "Restaurant Row" continues to impress.
Awesome seafood and awesome sunsets oceanfront, local style.. The Maine bay shrimp sandwich served on grilled brioche has become our go to dinner selection. The Dore catch of the day was fresh Papio (baby Ulua) which is almost impossible to find anywhere on any menu.
Peanut butter aficionados must have the peanut butter pie for dessert.

Very nice table right on the beach. Ocean was about 3 feet away. Nice eclectic atmosphere and very innovative food. Had the special Ahi dish which was delicious and swerved on an usual grits presentation.

We love Honu - return every trip to Maui. Must go early for a cocktail at the bar then aim for a table right by the water. The Negroni Slushy is a favorite. Must also try an oyster shooter. As for other choices if you like octopus you must get their grilled appetizer. Any main is good and we see a lot of people order a pizza - though in a dozen at least trips we never have.

Our third time at Honu. Staff was friendly and moderately attentive. Restaurant was clean, the view fantastic. In the last couple of years our first two visits here were pleasant. However very little has changed including the menu. The menu lacks imagination and has become a bit predictable and boring. We started with the steamed mussels, the quality of the seafood was good but lacked garlic, us making the broth very flat. My wife had the Margarita Pizza which she described as flavorful but lacked that something extra. She described it as "middle of the road" and "standard". I had the seared Ahi salad. Again great quality seafood but lacked flavor. I could continue but won't due to lack of space and the fact that I am not a restaurant critic. When I come to Maui and dine I expect something a little different again the wait staff was terrific the quality of the food good the ambiance unbelievable. But in my opinion honu Lacks any creativity flavor or inventiveness and it's menu is now very stale. The value for the price just was not there. As much as I love the location, we probably will not return.

What a great place; consistently great food! LOVED the mushroom pizza and the Ahi meatballs/pasta was outstanding! The kale salad with seared Ahi was also fantastic! Our server was simply excellent and, of course, being able to sit 10 feet from the ocean is an added plus. We try to visit Honu every time we come to Maui!

Went for last night dinner in Maui. Service was exceptional. We planned on having a local fish dinner, but had a few drinks and appetizers and were full! So we went back to Mala for brunch on our way to the airport and had the fish for breakfast! Which was also fabulous with excellent service. Highly recommend both restaurants.

This is one of our favorite restaurants on Maui. We always come back here because of the setting, wait staff and fresh fish. While we try new restaurants Homu is always a stop we make and we reserve far in advance of our trip so we know we can get in!

Excellent drinks, food and plenty to choose from. We shared the bruschetta and steamed muscles. the sauce was so delicious we ordered additional bread to soak it up. Berry torte for Dessert was fabulous. Our server Nicole was delightful and obviously made great recommendations. Ask for her and you can’t go wrong with whatever she suggests. We will definitely return on our next trip.

Overpriced restaurant. The quality of food is above average, but really nothing 'to write home about it'. However there are questions about the standards of cleanliness of this restaurant: while I enjoyed Tom and Jerry cartoons while I was a child, I do not enjoy seeing them in real life, especially mice roaming around on the floor of this restaurant. When I pointed out to the restaurant manager, she said is 'normal' to see mice on the floor of the restaurant due to water proximity. So, my take away is if you do not see mice at this restaurant is not normal, so please feel free to complain to the restaurant manager as you don't get 'the normal mice experience'.

This place is a real gem! We were seated promptly when we arrived for our reservation. We were given fried chick peas while we waited for our drinks. We ordered the Burratta as an appetizer and it was delicious. I had pizza and my husband had the fish and chips. Both were amazing!
Really appreciated the complimentary valet parking as well!

Great location literally right on the water. Crab sandwich is to die for, I get it every time I eat there. The Ahi brushetta appetizer is amazing! My husband gets the fresh fish of the day Dory style which he also loves. Complimentary valet parking so there's no hassle for parking spot.

I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone, the food was not good and it was way over priced. The service was okay a little slow at first but we were given good service. At first the noise level was very high but as the diners thinned out the level went down. The restaurant is in a nice location but the food just was not good. We had fish and chips, the beer batter was cooked but mushy, the fish would not stay in the batter, the fries were pretty good and the wine we had was good too.

We live in Sydney, Australia and have been traveling to Maui every year for the past 10 years. Honu is one of the handful of restaurants that we never fail to dine at when we visit. The food, wine selection and service is consistently great and the vibe is always amazing. It is always a pleasurable dining experience.
