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.

Fish was dry (very over cooked) Appetizers below fair. Staff very pleasant but never asked how our meals were. Will give it another try but let a year or so go by before doing so.

One of our favorite romantic restaurants on Maui! The setting is the best part - just steps from the sand. White formal table clothes. My spouse is GF and they have nice GF options!

The food was amazing with an awesome view! But our particular server wasn’t that great, or attentive, she didn’t take our order for an hour after we sat. We didn’t get bread or anything until after she got our orders making for a very hungry wait with nothing but waters.

Great food in an amazing setting. Food quality rivals Mama's with a view that is equally wonderful, albeit at a much more reasonable price point.

The place does looks great - both its interior and the location. The food was kid of average (I had coconut crusted Mahi-Mahi) - it was comparable to what you get at cheaper places on the island.

Our ceviche was outstanding though I wish the helping had been a bit more generous. The tempura fish entry that we both had was delicious, moist, tasty, and beautifully presented. The oceanside location and ambiance were first class. The luau music from next door added to the pleasure.
I'm not sure what the service issue was, but the waitress apologized 4-5 times. A complimentary wonderful bread platter arrived after 30 minutes or so. Our wine got there perhaps 45 minutes after seating. The ceviche took nearly an hour and our main course arrived 65 minutes after ordering.

Horrible service. We received our drinks a half hour after being seated and only after we asked for them again. We were never again asked if we wanted another drink. Food arrived about 70 minutes after we were seated. Food was good but the poor service ruined it. Would not return or recommend.

Pacific’O is one of my favorite places in Maui. Great food, great ambiance, with a great view at sunset. It’s a must stop for dinner for me every time I’m in Maui.

Though the location, ambiance, menu and service were top notch, the food simply missed the mark. My wife ordered the recommended shrimp wontons. Rather than a gourmet presentation of shrimp, accented with micro-greens, herbs, and flavorings complemented by crisp fried wonton dough, she got a a taquito-like roll of overcooked wrapper, with minimal shrimp filling. Fear it may have been mass produced by a factory and shipped to resturant frozen a la cheesecake factory. My house salad was well thought out, and described in menu, but somewhat limp in execution. Perhaps its “supposed to be” limp...if so, yuk.

Absolutely amazing brunch! Our party split a lot of the dishes and everything on the menu is fantastic!! Don’t miss the French Toast ...outside is crispy and inside is fluffy moist custard. Truly everything is fantastic, so you cant go wrong. Pork belly eggs benedict, avocado toast, house made sausage. Beachfront location puts it over the top.

Exceeding lovely spot. We've been to Maui many times, but this was a new find for us and a hidden gem. Wonderful food, excellent service, right on the sandy beach in the east end of Lahaina, so away from the touristy hubbub. All their food is grown at their own farms and brought fresh to the restaurant- so really great. Would highly recommend!

Haven't been here in years. This used to be one of the better restaurants on the west side. Food was a little disappointed. Started with burnt shrimp won tons. Three of us had risotto which was fine. My wife had a underwhelming fish dish. Water came to the table regularly but our server never came back to offer refills on drinks. Can't beat the oceanfront ambiance but the food and service have definitely slipped a few notches. Give a marginal three stars along with the high prices on food. Much rather go to Lahaina Grill or any of Mark Hellman's restaurants.

Food was outstanding as well as the service. I ordered the seafood risotto with the fish cooked perfectly. Our server was always making sure we had our glasses filled and answered all our questions about the menu. Sunset was beautiful while dining as the restaurant is very open. Will be going again!

Accomplished 3 events in a single dining exkpericance: Newlywed relatives in town during wifeʻs birthday! Staff went the extra step to determine if there was a special occasion and stepped up the service to make the experienc special -including a wonderful, complementary dessert for the birthday girl and the newlywed couple. This made a wonderful and memorable impression on the whiole party. Farm to Table cuisine and menu choices topped the evening off with the freshest selections from the sea and land. I had the seafood risotto which was so rich and included large sea scallops and two whold shrimp with head and body for a wonderful flavor and garnish all in one. We also had the rack of lamb, a chicken dish, all wonderfully and deliciously prepared. The final element was dining outdoors during a marvelous sunset watching the sun set into the waves off of Lahaina.

You’ll be paying for the setting, which is spectacular for sunset. Service was attentive and the server’s recommendations were helpful. The drinks list is good and the mango martini was a hit. However... The menu concepts were inspired but the execution sunk the ship. The ceviche was bland, and the fish in the risotto was over cooked. And definitely overpriced for what we got.

We usually dine at Pacific’O every time we’re on Maui because it’s a favorite of my husband’s. This time the food was mediocre; definitely not worth the prices. After paying the bill, my husband said we don’t need to go back there again.
