The only thing wrong with the kitchen was the undercooked Mahi Mahi in the fish taco. Too raw for my taste. I should have spoken up while ordering and asked them to cook the fish longer.

We have been before and had wonderful food (six months ago). This time the burger was extremely salty, the shrimp tasted they like were frozen, thawed, heated and s sauce added after. Tortillas on the tacos were dried not pleasant (but the fish was good). We were disappointed and don’t plan on going back.

Nice outdoor but covered restaurant in Westin property. Food was decent and the atmosphere was casual. Went there at about 5 pm, before the dinner crowd so there were plenty of seating available.

Thanksgiving buffet was truly awesome. The food selection ranged from traditional turkey, to fish, to prime rib. Disappointed there was no mashed potatoes or stuffing, but the purple yams tasted fine. Turkey was moist, gravy tasty, the prime rib superb! It was treat to find a ceviche and poke cart. The fresh mozzarella and tomato salad was a nice addition to the standard greens. Because of the holiday, reservations for the buffet was in high demand so dining was expanded into the conference area where they usually set up for the time share presentation. We ended up seated a bit aways from the buffet table but, it worked out just fine. Service was top notch. Our server was hustling and very much in control of his tables. He was friendly, kept our glasses filled, and quick to deliver our requests. It was our first Thanksgiving away from home and dining at Auntie's Kitchen was a treat because besides the awesome food and great service, it was the first Thanksgiving in years I didn't have to cook and clean! I ended the day relaxed instead of exhausted. Thank you, Auntie!

The restaurant was conveniently located in the Westin complex and only a short walk from our room, which was perfect for our first night in Maui. Upon arriving, many of tables were not cleared, and the noise level was quite high. I had the Maui Maui special. Though the taste was enjoyable, my fish was over cooked. The Cobb Salad included seared tuna, which lacked flavor.

We decided to stay on property and visited Auntie's more out of curiosity. We made reservations which were not necessary early but the longer we stayed the more people came in.

The setting is basically outside overlooking the pool area. It was both pretty and serene.

My wife had the Kalua Pork Lunch Plate and I had the Coconut Seafood Stew. She thoroughly enjoyed the pork and said the portion size was just right for her. The Seafood Stew was fabulous. It comes with a scoop of rice which is perfect for picking up the "stew" portion. It was thick enough to use a fork but needed the spoon to finish up. Delicious!

We finished splitting a Hana Fruit Split which is an enhanced banana split. I could have finished it myself but I shared so the portion was perfect.

I almost forgot our waitstaff Fred who was gracious in answering our questions and making sure our dinner was perfect!

We enjoyed the meal and the ambiance and will surely visit again.

We canceled our reservations at a more distant restaurant, and chose Auntie's, so we could walk without getting too wet on a very rainy evening. We were given an outdoor but covered table, next to the Koi pond. It was wonderful to listen to the rain, and to watch the falling water (sky and waterfall), the Koi and the local birds. The food was good - my MacNut crusted fish perhaps better than my husband's fish tacos. But the mixed berry sorbet was amazing. The service was very nice. Only problem was that at one point we good a few strong whiffs of cigar smoke - not sure where it came from, but wow did it smell bad.

On the last night of our vacation we were looking forward to a relaxing casual dinner. The waiter brought my husband an O’Douls instead of a St Pauli Girl N.A. which WAS listed on the menu. That’s like bringing me a Chardonnay when I ask for a Pinot Noir! Then we had to ask/insist he take it away. When he brought the salad ,which we said we were going to split , we had to ask for a second plate! Really someone needs to go back to waiter school! The food was good, the casual atmosphere was what we were looking for but our waiter , although polite had a bit of an attitude that we did not appreciate. A rating of three is the worst I have ever given.

Poke nachos is good, however, poke serving was a smaller ratio to the chips.

Cashing-computer system went down, and it took over half an hour to get my change back when i paid in cash.

We arrived to find the menu was not what was posted on the web site. The meal we were hoping to have was no longer offered. The only choice was a $40 buffet. We do not enjoy buffets. We were not familiar with any of the wines on the wine list, which seemed to all have Hawaiian names. When we asked the waiter to tell us about them & perhaps recommend one, he stated that none of the wines were very good, and that all the good wines were served at the other restaurant on the property. When he returned to take our order, we politely excused ourselves stating the menu was not what we had expected.
Seemed to be a “tourist trap” for guests staying there. Not for people who enjoy good wine & interesting food.

Dinner at a resort is a special occassion for us so we dressed for a special event, “resort wear!”. What a surprise that most everyone else wore swimwear, right out of the pool. Talk about overdressed! Luckily, the menu was wonderful and the preparation equally well done. Our server was good however he kept promising things that never materialized... missing lemon in ice tea and water, steak knife, etc... Quite puzzeling since it wasnʻt that busy. Another annoyance was that the hostess and her helpers were very good at accomadation large parties by moving tables together but they dragged each furniture piece along the rustic poutdoor stonework insterad of carrying the furniture. It was hard to talk while they dragged furniture around. In summary, food and menu choices were excellent but the ambiance is nothing more than a pool-side snack-bar. Finally, kudos to free valet parking since there is no parking available -but thereʻs no warning so we drove around a long time before stopping at the crowded lobby to delightfully find that valet parking was available and at no cost.
