Seafood
Nick’s Fishmarket Maui, located at the Fairmont Kea Lani in Wailea, offers the finest in local and mainland seafood in a tropical paradise setting. The romantic flair of the Mediterranean is seen in the restaurant’s decor, from the rich earth tones of its color scheme to the crisp white curves of its enchanting architecture. Patrons dining outdoors will fall under the spell of overhead, vine-covered trellises with fragrant stephanotis blossoms and sparkling lights, while looking out over the lush grounds of the hotel and onto the beautiful ocean view. Innovative, classic cuisine is the focus of this premier restaurant. Specialties include fresh Opakapaka, Mahi Mahi, Ahi, Opah, and Hawaiian Spiny Lobster, as well as standards such as Prime New York Steak, Rack of Lamb, and Greek Chicken. Whether it be a romantic dinner, a family celebration, a business function, or just a night out with friends, Nick’s Fishmarket Maui is the Valley Isle’s first choice in dining.

Absolutely Amazing....... Chris was hands down the most amazing, energetic, superlative server we've ever encountered. His positive energy and abundance of knowledge of his entire menu was impressive. He had fluidity through his transitions with each and every guest he accost. Chef Maka was amazing with his menu for the evening. Every dish from the Oysters, Black and Blue Ahi, Escargot Styled Scallops to the Beet and Maui Wowee salad, truly left you wanting more. Flavors were perfect and truly meshed well with each other. Our entrées in which were the Shrimp Scampi and Rack of Lamb were done to perfection as well. To end the evening.... Flaming strawberries, truly left us estatic and in awe. 5 star experience, 5 star food. Fantastic Job to Aaron, Doug, Chris and the rest of the Nick's Fish Market team.


Mahalo,

Excellent food both in quality and presentation. The staff followed COVID-19 protocol very well. We were seated near (though not too close for COVID-19 protocol) to a relatively loud and boisterous table of 4 that took away from our dining experience. I would not categorize them as rude and I am glad they were joyful but we were expecting a quiet and romantic experience. I'm guessing this was an exception not a norm.

We order the crab cakes which was good. Fresh taste. Only comes with two pieces. We also ordered the pork sticks which had more quantities (4) and were also good. The Nicks drink has NO liquor AT ALL. taste super sweet. We then ordered the mai Tai which was better. Entrees we ordered the rib eye steak which had no seasoning and was horrible. Was not cooked to the right temperature . The salmon was just ok. For three drinks two appetizers and two entrees came up to $200 which was NOT worth it at all.

Great as always, hope you can stay open. Only thing my wife and I don't like is the preparation of your escargot. You bake a thick layer of parmesan cheese on top that totally smothers the escargot. A small thing>

New Year’s Eve. The food absolutely terrible. Not sure what era the menu is from but boy howdy it wasn’t very good. Seafood sausage was never a thing, deviled eggs were runny and no flavor, lobster bisque didn’t have any lobster and tasted like salt, lamb chops over cooked and not sure what they were served on, ahi tune dry... I could
Keep going on but why bother. Our family ate here years ago and it was not much better but we thought we would give it another shot. Don’t eat here. Over priced and not relevant. Needs a new chef and get with time times.

Compliments to the excellent server. She is from SFO and is experienced and polished.

The food quality a d value are poor. The crab cakes had old crab in both odor and taste. Very uninspired preparation, mock like a home cook.

The Maui salad was a messy melange of too many ingredients and the plating was just a big glob blind by avocado.

The Mahi was well prepared but cold, served with improperly cooked jasmine rice and off the shelf chili sauce.

Awesome experience! My wife and I got to celebrate a belated wedding anniversary dinner there (since that is where we ate dinner on the night of our wedding on Maui but i was closed in July due to COVID). Our server, Cheston, was very professional and provided the utmost perfect service. Totally recommend this restaurant to anyone dining on Maui in the Wailea area.

Nick’s was the highly touted restaurant at the Fairmont Kea Lani. Unfortunately it did not live up to its surroundings. The servers were either inexperienced or incompetent. The food flavor was mediocre. There are plenty of excellent restaurants in the Wailea area- regretfully we chose to dine at Nick’s on Christmas Eve.
The Fairmont needs to decide if it really wants to be a 5 star hotel.

We’ve been to Nicks before and really like it. We got Chris for our waiter, the dining room manager, very engaging guy. We enjoyed talking with him as much as we enjoyed the meal, well maybe not as much as we enjoyed the Aubert Chardonnay. I’d never had it prior to coming here but it is our new favorite Chardonnay, boy is it ever good! Maui Wowie salad is great as is everything else on the menu and if you like strawberries, get the strawberries panzini for dessert, WOW!!!

We love Nick’s! It’s a little pricey, so we only visit on special occasions, but it’s definitely worth it! All their dishes and cocktails are mouth watering. You have to try their escargot appetizer and goat cheese beet salad. Meats are always cooked to perfection and their prawn scampi was delicious. Service was stellar (as always) and ambiance is quiet and romantic. Casual attire is okay, but since we go on special occasions, we like to dress up when eating here. Highly recommend this place for a special occasion, date night, or girls night out. You WON’T be disappointed :)

Nicks has become our go to place for dinning in south Maui. From welcoming us back as we arrived to pairing us with our previous waiter these Aaron Plackorakis has figured out how to take care of his guests and make them feel welcome. The Aubert wine was probably the best Chardonnay we have ever had. Oh...and the food was outstanding!

Since my daughter and her boyfriend came home for a visit, we decided to have our final night dinner since it was the first for all of us, we were not disappointed . Food was outstanding as was the service. They took extra precautions in light of COVID- took our temperature before seating us, tables that were 6 ft or more spaced apart and all staff wearing face mask.

It's definitely a special occasion restaurant...would go back again.
