About

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’ve been coming here for over 15 years. This is the first visit since the pandemic and we were greatly disappointed. We knew many of our favorite dishes were removed from the menu, but were very surprised with the quality of our entrees. Things started out ok, with the poke appetizer and salads being excellent. Things went downhill with the entrees. The mahi-mahi was fishy, not like and mahi-mahi I have ever tasted. Even the vanilla sauce couldn’t save it. The ahi just didn’t look fresh and didn’t have the right taste or texture. We’ve come to expect so much more from this place, but we are going to look elsewhere until we see that things are getting back to their usual standards.

Fantastic food and service, especially liked the menu choices and quality ingredients. You can tell the chef and staff know what they're doing and everyone is on the same page, this is not only a great meal experience but a well run restaurant and it shows. Great use of ingredients in classic dishes in non-traditional ways, I especially loved the risotto!

Good food and delicious island drinks. A bit overpriced for what you get but that seems to be the norm on the island.

Our favorite Maui restaurant never disappoints. From the friendly greeting to the efficient wait staff to the farm-fresh food, we couldn't have had a more wonderful dining experience. If only reservations weren't so hard to come by!

We were sat in the corner, picked this restaurant for the “amazing sunset views”. All of it was blocked by a fence and beach shower. It was our 10 year anniversary so at least the company was great.

Been here twice now and it really is amazingly fresh and delicious food. From the freshness and richness of the beet salad to the seafood risotto everything was exceptional. The lilikoi pavlova was delish! Cocktails are fun and tropical and the ambiance right by the water was perfect! Service was very attentive and quick too! We will be back for sure!

Right on the ocean for sunset. Food was OK but not great. Had the seared Ahi, but just white rice and hardly a vegetable. My wife had the steak with fries and she enjoyed it. John was a good server.

The food was amazing. Great flavor and presentation. The seating outside with the sun setting was beautiful. The only negative is the server couldn’t be found to order additional drinks, we sat there with empty glasses for at least 15 minutes. Finally the kitchen guys brought the food out( which was great because it all came at the same time) I ordered drinks through them to relay to the missing server. She seamed to be the only thing NOT ON POINT, buss staff, kitchen, hostess and most importantly the food was worth a return visit.

The menu at Pacific’O has something for everyone - fish, meat, salad. The wine list has international selections at every price point. Service at the restaurant was enough without being too much and our server was knowledgeable and attentive. It was an amazing dinner in a gorgeous ocean side setting. What more could you want?

It was so good getting back to the re opened gem of Lahaina, Pacific’O. The food, tho a much limited menu from earlier days, was good, and the special was mahi mahi with three very different preparations, the ocean front setting is always breath-takingly beautiful, especially when there is a brilliant sunset right around dessert time. The dessert was a yummy banana bread “sandwich” packed with vanilla bean macadamia nut ice cream. The best treat of the evening was our charming and gracious server, Murillo. Always pleasant and always presenting each course in perfect time. Welcome back, Pacific’O. mahalo and a hui hou!

The best meal I had in Maui by far! The location right next to the ocean made the experience that much more special. The food, especially appetizers was fabulous and the service was great too. We had John as our server!! A must go if you’re staying in Lahaina.
