We stopped in for lunch. Great Hawaiian ambiance overlooking a pond and fish and the pool.i ordered the fish tacos which were flavorful. Salsa had a slight kick.Jim was a attentive server and checked how we were doing several times. Definitely will return.
Good food . Horrible service
The Fish Tacos & Kung Pao Shrimp have been two of our favorite dishes in Maui. We had reservations and were seated right away.
Surprisingly great food for a pool-side hotel restaurant.

Nice place. Food is very good. Too many noisy kids
Service was nice and friendly. Food was average at best. The kids menu left a lot to be desired. Given the cost of the overall meal, my family will be looking elsewhere for a dinner out.
Very disappointed With the food.
Nice tropical setting among the gardens of the Westin. We had a table on the edge of the restaurant closest to the garden. Very nice evening with attentive service and tasty food.
Not a good dinner.
The quality of the food was very good. The ambience was excellent. The food was well prepared and well presented.
We did have a quiet corner and enjoy the meal.
My wife and I really enjoy the prime rib... perfect medium rare!
Unfortunately, the service was bad. Our waiter messed up my order. I asked for the spinach salad with the cheese and dressing on the side. It arrived drenched in dressing and no cheese on the side and it was missing the macadamia nuts mentioned on the menu. So my meal arrived ten minutes after my family’s food. Typically a waiter will offer you bread or something to nibble while you wait....he offered nothing to compensate. We asked for a straw that never arrived. The food was ok but nothing impressive. My daughter’s burger was overcooked—not medium rare as requested.
If you are staying at the resort or even just within walking distance and you don't want to go out and fight parking or after 9pm reservations at some of the local spots, this is a good bet. We enjoyed walking here and dining outdoors. The food and drinks were solidly good. The coconut cake with berries was great!
Roy was friendly and gave excellent service
Food was not very good, especially for the price.
In my reservations I noted it was my 40th birthday dinner (and it was Christmas Day) and requested a table with a view. None of the notations mattered. Not only were we seated in an overfill area (an area normally designed for their sales area) but we were stuck in the back. There was no mention whatsoever it was buffet style dinner as opposed to a buffet. Nothing about the dinner or atmosphere was special. I would not recommend this “restaurant” lest one is completely out of options.
We have had many meals at Auntie’s Kitchen over many visits to the Westin Villas on Kaanapali Beach. Great property location, easy to eat meals anytime of day. The good is excellent and so is the service. I highly recommend this restaurant. ❤️👌👋👍😎🥂🤟
Excellent food, good service, beautiful surroundings but a bit too noisy.
Get the molo loco
This is a pretty outdoor restaurant close to the large pool at the resort. You can see the ocean off in the distance and feel the cool ocean breezes while you dine. LOVED the kahlua pork, probably the best I've ever had (tender, flavorful and juicy). Hubby had fish tacos which he really enjoyed. This was a nice dining experience.
Whenever we are at the Westin KOR, we eat at Auntie’s Kitchen. The food is always delicious, fresh and the tropical setting is lovely. My husband loves their hamburger. I love their island Cobb salad with seared ahi tuna. We have also had their mixed plate with rice, macaroni salad, ahi poke Kailua pork and lomi salmon. The service is always friendly and efficient. The bar menu offers daily special drinks as well as full service. Also the breakfast buffet is wonderful!
Lively bar scene and good poolside view. Hawaiian comfort food with an Asian flair. Friendly wait staff. Definitely family friendly with great breakfast buffet.
Food not quite as good as it used to be!!!! Service was excellent though.
It’s a pool side eatery so the furniture is designed for wet bottoms. The menu is typical Hawaiian lunch type items. It’s appears to be the same menu for dinner.
If you are tired and don’t feel like leaving the property it’s good choice.
The Wednesday lobster boil is a must! There is a bit of a very good tasting broth and I requested for a bread to dunk. Enjoyed it. Waitstaff Brittany and Jessie were accommodating and pleasant.
If you are staying there, and want a convenient meal, it will do. Prime rib was very good, garlic shrimp were not. Seems like they took shrimp from shrimp cocktail and put a little butter on it.
The coconut-pineapple scones are delicious.
Fish tacos were good and kids mac and cheese looked decent. My poke bowl should have been called a poke cup. Smallest poke serving I've ever seen. It was good...just tiny and a terrible value. An ok option if you're unwilling to leave the Westin, but there are definitely better dining options nearby.
My wife and I really enjoyed the prime rib! It was on the rare side of medium rare just as we like it!
The seafood stew was just as good as the first visit 2 years ago. Also, good for happy hour. It's a convenient and casual restaurant if you're staying at the Westin KOR.
Aunties was mediocre, expensive, slow service. Food was nothing special cocktail was watered down and noticeably different from previous when available as drink of the day at Westin villas north pool bar which is awesome food and service the drink “ tropical Collins”. Will never utilize this place again
Food was so not good. Service was brutal. View was good.
What a great salad we had there. Hyper-local ingredients, super fresh, and very tasty. This is a great, centrally located find for a reasonably priced lunch, don't know that I'd recommend for dinner. Tasty and the service, which can be a little notoriously slow on the island comparatively, was quick.
It’s a reasonable choice for a resort - casual and the food was tasty.
We had reservations and were promptly seated. That was the highlight of our service.
We each ordered a cocktail and our entrees (poké and an herb-roasted chicken dish). Both entrees were wonderful. I'm still wondering what the sauce was that was served under the chicken. I want a gallon! :)
Halfway through our meal my cocktail glass and water glass were both empty. It took over ten minutes to get our server's attention and when she acknowledged me she immediately brought us our check. I explained I was not needing the check but another cocktail and a water refill. It took another five minutes to get anything to drink because she waited for the bartender to make the cocktail before she refilled my water glass.
After dinner, we wanted to order dessert but it took another ten minutes to get the server's attention and by that time we just decided to leave. The restaurant was busy on this Friday night and I was surprised during the 75 minutes we were there we never saw a member of management walking the dining room asking diners how everything was.
The food was great. Now if they could only get the service up to the level of the food.
A delightful respite amid all of the hustle and bustle of Kaanapali! The food is good and the service is very professional.
