For many years, the Kula Lodge has been a favorite for both visitors and Kama'aina alike for delicious cuisine and breathtaking views of Maui. Perched high on the slopes of Haleakala with a 180 degree view of Maui, the Kula Lodge and Restaurant is a comfortable and homey place to relax, especially on your way down from the sunrise or sunset at the crater. It is situated on 4 lovely acres and not only has a stunning botanical garden, it has the only full-service bar and live music in Kula. It's also the only place upcountry with dancing (on Friday and Saturday nights)!

The restaurant seats up to 160 guests, making it ideal for weddings and special events. The Kula Lodge outdoor Garden Terrace features a brick wood-burning pizza oven and an open view of south, central and the Maui mountains. The sunset views are absolutely phenomenal!

Sunday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings from 5-7 have live entertainment; Friday & Saturday evenings from 5-8pm have live entertainment AND dancing!

    Well worth the trip from Kihei. Loved the lush gardens, attentive service, enjoyable live music, farm fresh veggies, seafood and beef. Kamaaina discount on main dishes made value even more appealing. Have told family and friends that this restaurant is the real deal. Great place to bring houseguests.

    Since the Vodjani family of Simon and Stephanie (from the 5 Palms) bought the Kula Lodge, everything has improved for the much mo’ bettah! By the way, the view is spectacular! They survived the terrible wildfires last year with a long closure, slow reopen with breakfast and brunch, and to our delight, are open again for dinner Wed-Sun. It has become one of our favorite places to dine in Upcountry Kula. We are always warmly greeted by the hostesses up front. They have redone their breakfast menu with delicious variations on standard fare. Under the direction of Chefs Raoul and Junior breakfast is a fun adventure. They’ve always had a delicious loco moco, but now it is made with boneless short rib elevating it to new heights, Kula Lodge Eggs Benedict have tasty ham, cheddar, eggs and Hollandaise on a slice of pain perdue ~ a crispy piece of French bread dipped in egg. A welcome addition is the Shakshuka which is a popular dish in North Africa and Middle East consisting of eggs poached in tomato, harissa, olive oil, garlic onions and peppers and flat bread. The other items look very tasty, too. Our servers have always been enthusiastic and helpful. By the way, they make an unbelievably good Kula Lodge Bloody Mary with Ocean Vodka, a pepper, celery and a strip of crispy bacon. We met Peter, the GM, who showed his and his staff’s appreciation, and helped arrange my birthday dinner. We walked in Thursday to the beautiful music of George Kahumoku, a virtuoso and national treasure of Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar. Our excellent server was Sarah who even created a small table arrangement for us. Chef Junior was there that night and greeted us during our meal. The Poisson Cru was light and delicious. Chef Junior and Chef Raoul recreated their spectacular Beef Wellington with mushroom duxelle which was perfect. The tagliatelle with beef and venison ragu a delight. Their wine and dessert offerings are tantalizing. We can’t wait to try new items Mahalo to a Great Team!

    Atmosphere was relaxing and quiet for a nice dinner with my wife. The appetizer ordered was bland tasting and cold. The wrong main course was brought to us while waiting for our main course. The Main course we received had little flavor and was expensive to say the least. Waiter wasn’t tentative and lost my credit card when paying for dinner. After waiting approximately 15 minutes for the waiter to return my credit card and receipt, the host stand called me and said I left my credit card behind and that it is at the front host stand. The waiter returned to our table confused why we were still sitting there and I explained the host stand called me saying I left my card behind. He retrieved my credit card and finally ran the transaction. Poor food and service after it was recommended to us.

    We’ve always liked this restaurant for us location and cozy ambiance since it first opened. Under new management the food has improved considerably. The preps are good looking and the portions good. We had the steak and prawns with a bursts salad and house salad. More than enough! Patrons still include some of the oldest families on Maui so it is popular as well.

    Went to the cool lodge for Mother’s Day for their buffet. The prawns and the chilled salmon was delicious perfectly cooked and the cheeses and fruits were fresh the waffles however, were tough and dry and their desserts were OK, but nothing stood out as a wow factor however the breathtaking views were absolutely beautiful and stunning a reason to go The music was enjoyable, and the drinks were very good
