Sunset dining at its best! Pacific’O is located on Lahaina's most beautiful white sand beach with panoramic views of three neighboring islands. This was the chosen residence and "playground" for Hawaiian royalty; here ancient kings and queens feasted and made merry. Today, enjoy the same pleasures in Pacific'O's open air dining room or on the romantic beachside patio. Long recognized as a leader in local, organic dining; Pacific'O was the first to establish their very own island farm. Each day the table is set with just harvested macrobiotic vegetables and fruit; and local fishermen deliver fresh fish still dripping from the sea. Pacific'O is a local favorite since opening in 1993.

We were here celebrating a special honeymoon dinner. The food was incredible. The service was excellent and relaxed. Allowed us to enjoy and order at our own pace which was very much appreciated. Would definitely come back.

I found the food was okay, however, my mother makes better lamb chops and I would expect a restaurant to be better than hers. The tables were too close together, meaning that I could hear the conversations of the tables next to me extremely clear. Anthony, our waiter, was exceptional and is in our opinion a great asset to the company, although did not acknowledge the special occasion to which we dined. With that said, they did provide us with a card and I believe Anthony wasn’t informed.

Amazing location, great food but got the worst waitress in the building. This location is right on the beach and the food is farm to table.

Our dinner was underwhelming. 3 of us had a the vegetarian gnocchi and it was almost tasteless. My husband's steak was pretty good. However, we ordered a chocolate flourless dessert that was delicious.

Dinner took a long time to come out and was pretty bland. The only thing I enjoyed was the salad. Disappointing because in years past this has been a favorite.

Daniela the hostess and the waitstaff were five star service and showered us with lotsa warm Aloha spirit!
Food was fresh & delicious for our grandma’s birthday.
ALSO, the beach front view was unbeatable and great for family photos. I was born and raised in Maui and have seen lotsa restaurants come and go... Pacifico’s at 505 Front Street never disappoints my family & guests the past many decades now!

Très bel endroit au bord de l océan.
Service efficace et agréable.
Repas en famille pour le réveillon. Ambiance tranquille et pas du tout festive à part quelques ballons.
Différentes propositions intéressantes pour le menu, tout était très bon sauf les desserts (trop lourds).

What a disappointment. We ate here a few years ago on our last trip and it was GREAT. This time around we experienced horrible service, mediocre food and inflated New Year's Eve prices. We'll not be returning to "Pacific O-no". Try Star Noodle instead. No view, but epic food.

I love this restaurant. This is our 2nd visit in two years. Menu offered many entrees. Could dine here day after day if I had more money. The restaurant is a bit pricey. So, can only visit a few times a month, max. The waiter when we arrived was very attentive told us about any specials and took our drink order quickly. However, later in the evening when tables filled he really needed help. It was Christmas Day so I'm giving him some slack. I'm impressed with their menu and I think you will be too. Highly recommend Pacific'o.

Dear chef. Very disappointed with the quality of your food.

Your gnocchi sure looked and felt deep fried, even though the waiter attempted to convince me it was pan fried. No taste. Soup was lumpy and cold. Only saving grace really were the drinks.

Others in the party had the lobster and commented how salty it was. Very disappointed for a Christmas Day fixed menu.
Service was equally as bad. Waiter never asked how things were and when I commented he ignored me. Appreciate a full refund on my card for the terrible food. Happy to pay for the drinks.

It was Christmas Eve. Seating was outside on plastic chairs which I was not expecting. Service was good. Food arrived pretty quickly. Bread was delicious. When we asked for more the second loaf came out about half the size of the first. But still hot and tasty. My son’s plastic chair broke and he fell on the ground. They were nice about it and asked if he was ok but that was about it. My entree was cold. It rained off and on but they don’t have any kind of table umbrellas which I thought was strange. But I think if I came back to Maui I would be willing to give it a second chance.

The fresh fish, vegetables and farm-to-table vibe is apparent throughout the menu. I highly recommend doing the O'o Farm tour a couple of days prior to your dinner reservation. Then you can appreciate the food that much more!

Our reservations were set for 5:15 PM, which was perfect for our Christmas Eve dinner. They did not rush us, but we did have a starter, cocktails, main course, and wine with our main course. We were there for a fantastic 1 and 45 mins.

Won't be able to afford this treat every night, but it was worth it.

Our 5:30 reservation was perfect for watching the sunset. We went early to enjoy a wonderful happy hour. Great happy hour food offerings but we were saving ourselves for dinner. Dinner was amazing and very beautifully presented. Our service by Chris was impeccable. This was a special celebration for us and we are happy to have chosen Pacific'O. We will return.

Had the chef's tasting menu with wine pairing, and every course was delicious and each wine was perfectly paired. While the seating closest to the beach set a nice romantic vibe, if you're facing the water, your plate is in your shadow. Definitely recommend and will be back!
