Hawaii Regional Cuisine
What we serve at Ka‘ana, we serve from the heart. We source from local farmers, ranchers, and fishermen. We only put on your plate what we feel is proper to serve. Our pairings speak to the ability to connect the elements of taste, smell, and touch with everything around us.
Our dishes are prepared using techniques from around the culinary world, but thought-out in accordance with our micro-climate. The way we prepare our fish, season our salads, and grill our meat depends not only on its origin, but what the weather tells us, how the swells on the ocean shape our mood, and how the land influences our feelings.
Here we hope to blur the lines between your kitchen and our restaurant, between what is external and what is internal. We invite you in, share our hopes, and create a unique dining experience that connects you to this place and its essence.

Went for our anniversary, and had a great time. Got there for sunset sitting outside, watching whales go by. The Pork Belly was AMAZING, as well as the watermelon salad. Gives the option of entree plates or tapas. It's pricey, but it's Wailea, so get over it. Will definitely go back for a special occasion.

We ordered a watermelon salad for $15.00. It was a piece of watermelon sprinkled with some goat cheese feta, a few veggies, and a little dressing. Very disappointing! We had the Maui caught fish which was good, but it could have been served with rice or potatoes. Coconut sundae was good, but nothing special for $15.00. The setting is very special, but the food is expensive and not as good as other places on the island.

One of the best meals we’ve had. We are here on our honeymoon and after a long day of exploring and rainy evening weather, we thought we’d stay local to our hotel - Andaz Maui at Wailea - the food, every morsel, every bite, was just so beyond delicious!!! Highly recommend - we had the octopus and waygu hanger to start, then the risotto and chicken as our mains - YUM!!!

While honeymooning in Hawaii for 2 weeks and eating at every great restaurant on Kauai and Maui this was easily in the top 3 meals I had on either island. We had the ahi tatake with burrata which was SPECTACULAR, the watermelon and goat cheese feta salad to start. Then we followed with the Wagyu ramen (melt in your mouth tender), the pork belly, also outstanding, and the lamb bao buns which were phenomenal. I would come back any and every chance I got. 10/10

This is our 2nd time back to Ka'ana Kitchen and we thoroughly enjoyed every part of our meal. The appetizers were delicious, the main dishes were better than we remembered and the dessert was the perfect way to end the meal. We highly recommend Ka'ana Kitchen to anyone looking for a great meal on Maui. Thank you Chef Issac and team for preparing a memorable meal.

Great food, great service and wonderful ambiance !! We found this little gem while searching the internet for good restaurants in Wailea and couldn't have been more happy with our experience. The Andaz resort was beautiful, the location was excellent and Ka'ana was the icing on the cake. Highly recommend a quiet dinner here, you'll not be disappointed.

We took our son, his wife and our two grandkids and had a wonderful time! The service was excellent and the food and wine were over the top! Can’t wait to go back! We love sitting inside and watching the chefs cook and we have sat outside before which is also wonderful! Every employee in the hotel and restaurant was very nice!

This place is overhyped. We didn’t find the menu very interesting and and the food lacked that last touch. We liked the ahi poke salad, everything else was mediocre for the price. Good wine list but again overpriced.

The food is fabulous, but I think it's gotten ridiculously expensive. We were there during the holidays and reservations were full. Even though we had a reservation, we waited 45 minutes. It was handled really poorly. I used to love this place, but I'm not returning.

Food was excellent as usual and they were happy to work around my mother’s gluten allergy and special requests. Restaurant was particularly busy the night we went during Christmas week and they seated us about 15 minutes past our reservation time. Service throughout the evening was noticeably slow. Still one of my favorites on Maui though!

Service was the worst of any meal we had on Maui. From order to food arriving was well over an hour. Waiter never apologized or even acknowledged just how glacial the kitchen was incredibly behind. All the other tables within sight of our table had equally sloooooowwwwww service. Great maybe for a date night. Don’t go with kids. Actually just don’t go. Not worth it.

Worse Restaurant on Maui.. Extremely overpriced!
Very small portion of food!
Poor quality of food! The Meat was like trying to eat bloody rubber!
Poor service, had to ask for more water and tea 4 times!

Then they force an 18% tip without permission for only 2 people!

As a Sales manager over 7 properties in Maui with 11 concierge on our staff, I can never allow any of them to recommend this restaurant!

Everything about this meal was OUTSTANDING. Every single bite of food was delicious, and our waiter Chris was extremely informative and meticulously attentive to my son’s gluten and dairy allergies. The meal was paced beautifully, and Chris never made us feel like my son’s dietary restrictions were an issue. Food and water servers were extremely pleasant and chatty without being intrusive. Will be back here very soon!
