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.

The restaurant and beach setting are very attractive. The food is very good and healthy tasting. And the service is friendly and efficient. It is rather expensive but is worth it to try it at least once. The Feast of Lele is held nightly next door so you hear some of the music, but it isn't terribly intrusive. Parking is somewhat of an issue. There is a $10 lot across the street as well as a pay garage under the building. But if coming for dinner, it might be rather full and you might need to walk a bit if you find a spot on the street.

This was our second visit to Pacific’O after two years. We started with won ton appetizer, and cocktails. My entree was Kona winds: seared ahi served over a bed of O’o Farm greens, macadamia nuts, avocado and Maui onion salsa, surfing goat cheese, jasmine and black Thai rice, bacon soy vinaigrette (basically a salad) and very, very delicious.

Husband had Olive oil poached fish, lightly seared on the grill, then poached in olive oil, accompanied by a zucchini and coconut puree, O’o farm vegetables, and pickled squash. “Very good,” he says! Our server, Rachel, was excellent, warm and conversational. She made the evening better. The sunset was devine!

What a gem of a restaurant....literally on the beach, so every seat has an awesome view of the sunset. The restaurant is quiet - great for a romantic evening. We started with the hen pate, which was very good, and hubby had the coconut mac mahi-mahi which he really enjoyed. I had the Kona wind - which is grilled fish on a bed of local greens with avocado and goat cheese. The flavor was there, but hard to actually pick out a piece of cheese or avocado. Nonetheless, it was delicious and we will be back!

We have eaten here many times and have never been disappointed. We love to sit outside in front and watch and sunset over the ocean. The food is very creative and reflects the very best of Hawaiian seafood. We came here many years ago to use a luncheon coupon, but now come back for both lunch and dinner whenever we are in Maui.

Lovely location right on the beach; food was fantastic - farm to table fresh vegetables and fish caught the same day. Service was a little slow, but for Maui (island time) it was acceptable. Would absolutely recommend it to friends and we will eat here again when visiting West Maui!

We ordered the chefs pairing menu with the wine tasting. We waited over 20 minutes for our first course and it was wrong, the correct one came and it was cold. The wait staff did not anything about the wines we were drinking. I asked for the manager and things calmed down a little but the dinner was not worth the prices they charged us.

I was surprised as I dined there many times before but I will not go back again.

Food was beautifully plated, the ambience of the beach can’t be dismissed, but after informing them of the occasion (our anniversary) I would have expected a better table than one in the corner next to a public beach shower, and situated behind a tall fence that blocked all view of the sunset.

For the price, we expected more than a piece of [well cooked but tough] fish and a side of vegetables.

Years ago we visited i’o and absolutely loved it. We expected more from its sister restaurant. Won’t be going there again.

The service and food quality was excellent. The price was higher than expected. I had the pork belly which was a very original composition. The beets, were very flavorful and the dressing was an excellent accent. For our entree we had the Ahi which didnt work for us. Too much salad after having the beets and the guacamole didnt work with the dressing they brought with it. Mind you they had to make adjustments to their preparation due to my soy allergy, which by the way they accommodated exceptionally well.

The view of the sunset here is awe inspiring on the right Maui evenings. The menu still includes the best of Maui items from the original chef James but it's lost much of his artistry. The items are the same but the wow factor is gone. That said, the food is good and the ambience is wonderful under the stars.

So glad to have found this wonderful romantic place. Sunset here is magical. Great food, attentive service, freshest ingredients, preparation is perfection. Our only complaint is that the parking can be a challenge, due to the luau next door. We have been here 3 times now, and will be back next time we are in Maui.

Pacific'O was a real culinary treat. We ordered the tasting Menu without wine and we were delighted. Each course was a thing of beauty. The flavors were many and varied, and the staff and the Chef were very responsive to an allergy of mine.

Plenty of color and farm to table is the real deal here. The restaurant has its own farm which supplied most if not all of the produce used in the preparation of our meal. From the first course to the last, service was outstanding. Chad, our waiter, was attentive and very well informed. Backwaiters were also knowledgeable and interested in our happiness, and the success of our meal.

Highly Recommended!!
