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.

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!

The food was good the service however wasn’t good. My husband never could get a refill on his ice tea. My son waited 20 minutes to get another diet soda. The waitress really need more personality I ordered a drink I didn’t like and of course paid for it but it wasn’t what she described and took a long time time to get me another drink. I was really looking forward to dinner and was disappointed. I will try it again next trip.

We've been dining here every year for the last three years and they never disappoint. From the ultra fresh ceviche to the delicately prepared coconut crusted mahi mahi, and the top notch but un-pretentious service (great job Jeremy), always makes for a memorable dining experience. Keep up the excellent work!

We booked a table at the beginning of dinner service (5:30 pm) to take in November’ early sunset, and were this seated at one of the coveted outdoor tables. It’s not just ocean view: it’s ocean side. Literally a stones throw away from the lapping waves.

Our server was above approach: responsive and friendly without hovering. We ordered the day’s special appetizers (local mussels and a fern balsamic salad), and two recommended entrees: Kona fish and the seafood risotto. Fabulous on both counts, particularly the risotto.

Meanwhile, the sun was setting beyond the waves, a man lit torches along the beach, and music and happy conversations filled the air.

The place was full of other tourists, of course, but didn’t feel at all touristy. And wow, what a phenomenal experience for a special date. Reasonably pricey, and deservedly so. A five star experience for us!

Underwhelming. Restaurant wants to be high-end fine dining experience, based on the menu which is way overpriced for what they serve. Some of their issues that make this a big "miss" on our list: small portions of average to above-average food; slow and unsophisticated service (server had too many tables); situated next to an outdoor luau venue, which means intermittent drums, music, cheering crowd, and bright lights during what should be quiet meal at the beach; plastic tables and chairs (yes! plastic at fine dining restaurant); bread promised during starter courses was served after main courses were brought to the table.

Food was amazing. Service was so nice and very knowledgeable about the source of the foods and drinks. We did sunset at a different location, so missed the views, but have heard they're amazing and there would not be a bad seat for views with tge layout. We went for our anniversary and were greeted with a card and then received chocolate cake for dessert. Would definitely visit again.

High quality food spoiled by poor service and ambiance. Even with a reservation, we were crowded into a very small table next to a pillar. Our server was either very bad at his job or had far more tables than he could handle. We heard the specials via the waiter at the table next to us. Other than the waiter, staff that provided water, bread, etc were very attentive. The table had a rock that one of the bus staff insisted on fixing with his paper shim. The food was good, but the evening was not. Next year we will probably skip Pacific’O in favor of a number of others places to eat.

Pacific O consistantly serves upscale interesting gourmet food. We think it is the best value on the island because while some tables are in the interesting interior, most of the seating is outside near the ocean.

We love this place for special occasions. We chose it for our last night on island dinner. Its a true leisurely dining experience. This is a farm to table restaurant, so high quality food is guaranteed. Fish is fresh daily. Ocean waves lapping at the shore, just feet away makes this a wonderful experience. Service is excellent!

Food and drinks were fantastic. We had ahi tuna and what a delicious and varied bowl of flavors. Our husbands had mahi which was equally delicious. Beautiful view.
A little loud at times with people along the beach —- young group of teenagers, maybe 10 altogether and a young lady who seemed like she was on drugs putting her hand through the tiki torch flames on the beach but they didn’t bother us.

We LOVE Pacific’O! It is our place on Maui. We come for lunch on the day we land and usually eat there a few times during our stay. This time we did all that and came for our final island dinner. They do not dissappoint. Rachel our server was rad! She was smart, kind, quick, and just super the several times we had her this visit. Love their salads, the fresh ingredients and goat cheese, all their fish dishes, kombucha on tap and the view.
You know how sometimes you don’t want to give a place a stellar review because you are worried the place will get crowded and popular? That’s how we feel about Pacific’O, but we wanted to share the wealth.
