Food very similar to cafeteria food.
The rice was served with and ice cream scoop.

Service excellent.

We both had the ahi island Cobb salad. The miso dressing was excellent and the overall salad was great. One of the best Cobb salads I have enjoyed in a while.

It’s a cute place for a fast-food-type and the service is consistently attentive and friendly, but the food really doesn’t taste that good.

A nice casual little outdoor restaurant with excellent service and food. The only downside was the hostess- took her 10min to greet us at the door and never smiled once. She gave off a “stressed out vibe” when quite honestly the restaurant wasn’t that busy! Front end staff set the mood for the guests. Our server on the other hand was superb. Kudos to him!

warmed over buffet, very expensive at $60/head, not even a white table cloth.
huge disappointment, expected more for the money especially at a Westin property.
would recommend friends not go there.

Ridiculously overpriced, however, the food and service was very good. The location is very special, good for a one time experience. I would probably not dine here again because of the prices.

I love their Autnies Fried Rice with two eggs on top of fried rice with Portuguese sausage, pork belly and spam. It’s so good! Others in our group got their regular breakfast (2 eggs, toast, potatoes) and they enjoyed it too.

Pretty disappointed. The beef dip was terrible. Soggy bread and not much flavour, tasted like something you’d get at a fast food joint. It was so soggy the flavour didn’t really change whether you dipped it or not.

Once someone came and served us it was fine, but they were a good 15 minutes past our reservation when seating (which is fine, wasn’t too worried), but then it took another 15 after being seated before someone came over to take our drink order.

We were pleasantly surprised with our first meal here and decided to come back as this place was not overly prcied like everything else in the area. Food is great the first time and just ok the second. So the message is that consistency ma6 not be there every time but worth trying for the view and outdoor experience

We are a local family from Makawao, using the couple for Kamaaina discount as A Kitchen posted in local newspaper, we were excited to try a new place on Maui. We showed up at 1:50 pm for lunch, kids hungry after afternoon at beach, and although my daughter order quesadilla and the boy ordered a turkey burger, it was 2:55, more than an hour and food was still not out, two tables next to us sat down after us and were finished or just finishing their food by the time we got ours. And the place was not even that busy, there were plenty open tables. My wife ordered the "baja" style fish tacos and they came soggy fish, not battered like "baja" style and all luke warm. She did not even eat them, my daughter said her dish was "ho hum..dady you make better at home", the boy did like his burger, but he eats anything and my steak sandwich was also just ok. No reason to ever go back. Typical resort food. I feel sorry for all the visitors, our bill for 4 plates (two off kids meal menu should be cheaper) was $70 with 50% off, if I had paid $140 for that meal as a tourist I would have said Aunties Kitchen and the Hotel was a big rip off. Look a family of 4 can eat well for about 2/3 the price at either Paia Fish Market Lahaina or Star Noodle (not same owners, not related to me, I am a local this is were we like to eat). I like to try new places because there are only like 3 places on Maui we go to regularly, Aunties Kitchen will not be one of them.

Our family had Thanksgiving dinner here. They had a wonderful buffet with a broad offering. Everything was delicious. I would recommend Auntie’s.

We came here everyday for breakfast during our stay since it was so close to our room at the Westin. Everything here is good to very good. No major complaints and the ambiance is very beautiful... But we have to say over all our best experience was when Claudia was our server. The place is usually pretty busy in the morning so we understand that service is usually not the greatest, but all of servers did their best. However, Claudia went above and beyond and kept checking on us and had what we wanted before we even asked!! Fantastic service that put their overall service to five stars!!

The Kitchen is located on a lanai next next to a resort swimming pool it is screened by bushes, but there is some noise from the pool area. This is casual dining room, the tables and chairs are wooden without table cloths. I did not find the uncushioned wooden chair very comfortable. The service was good, the staff knew the menu well and they kept our water glasses full without us having to ask for refills. I had the chicken meal which was supposed to come with crispy skin, it was not crispy. The Kitchen does provide a huge home made roll with each main course and the brownie dessert was atttactive.

We like Aunties Kitchen. The ahi salad was great. The servers are friendly. I like that their ice tea is Mango Ice tea, very nice. They serve great tasting coffee. We enjoyed the fish tacos too! In November, we needed to reserve a table, so do that so you dont have to wait 45 minutes. Popular place! Go see Auntie!

Always a great meal here at Aunties. Only request is to copy the poke nachos recipe from the Westin in Kauai. They have a much better version.

Food was decent but the service made it worth it. Our server was very attentive to refilling our drinks and checking if everything was going well. It’s a little noisy with it being open and lots of full tables plus the back grown music was a little loud. If you are staying at the resort or a neighboring one it’s a decent place to eat. Easy to walk to from the ocean path.

This place overhauled thier menu food was much better and simple when it was ocean bar and grill. We went for the ahi sandwich which used to be divine they took that off so we had drinks and kids had a cheese pizza. I give the food 3 at best. Service was good though.

The server was inexperienced, the red wine was warm, the chicken was over cooked, and they forgot part of our order. Would not recommend.

On vacation and went to a local restaurant on the boardwalk. Service was extremely slow on a Sunday afternoon. Food was cold once served and my cocktail was delivered watered down as it took at least a half hour before it was served.

The food was barely edible and dramatically overpriced. I had an over cooked veggie burger on a disgusting gluten free bun that was soggy on the bottom and tasteless, as was the burger. The fries it came with were fine. My husband had a quesadilla and a spinach salad. With the tip it came to $73. Would never eat there again.
