Hawaii Regional Cuisine
Welcome to Roy's Ka'anapali! Since opening "the original" Roy's Hawaii Kai in 1988, I have set out to explore "new directions," blending classic European cooking techniques with unique influences of Asia and the Pacific. Guided by the freshest ingredients and my own sense of freedom, the menu is constantly evolving.

I have to say this was truly an all around wonderful experience. The four of us are all picky eaters with an expensive palate and appreciation for delicious food. Roy’s delivered all around! Our waiter was Michael. Very friendly and professional. Our food was perfectly prepared. We ordered the calamari appetizer and it was easily the best I’ve ever had and let me tell you I order it at just about any restaurant that sells it. I live in a seafood rich town so it’s around a lot. But this one was so perfectly seasoned and full of flavor. We also ordered the fried chicken, short ribs and a fish entree. All three of them were delicious! I’m not a big fan of fish (other than calamari and crab) but this fish was so light and flaky with no fishy taste whatsoever!

I really can’t say enough good things about this restaurant. I feel like it’s a great place to do yourself a favor and try new things you would never order. You won’t be disappointed!

Roy's never disappoints, from the service to the fresh caught fish to the amazing desserts. Great wine list too! The Ka'anapali location is a must do while in Maui, my only complaint was that we were there after dark and could not see the beautiful golf course just below the seating.

Super loud obnoxious guest at table next to ours. He made sure we heard every word. Awful. (Btw- it was a famous sportscaster known for saying “...rumblin, bumblin, stumblin). Ruined our meal.

Turning a blind eye to CVID restrictions, the food and service were great. The spread out layout removes the lovely vibe of Roy’s. It was a fabulous Birthday meal.

Limited menu due to covid restrictions. Obvious care in distancing tables, limited occupancy but not the Roy's experience I've come to know and love.

We have been to Roy's in Waikiki, and where disappointed in our experience at Roy's in Maui in comparison. The food was mediocre and the environment felt very casual.

Limited lunch menu compared to dinner, but food is very good. It is located on the golf course so ambiance is so so. Too bad they are not located waterside which would make dining here all that more special. We wanted to try their chocolate but they ran out.

Food was great, service however was not so great. Our server ignored us most of the time for other tables. Took a long time to take our order. We had to call another server to even get water. I was never offered more to drink and had to ask for dessert. Then I was told it would take another 20 minutes for desserts

High consistent quality from toys - always a solid choice and great for kids. Not the most exciting venue on kanapalli beach but it was very nice. The chocolate soufflé desert was superb.

Food was very good as was the service. Ambieance was ok...a 3.5. No real views and nothing that really adds to the experience. It is a golf restaurant, so you see part of the golf course.

Roy’s was fine but overrated. Our server behaved as if our presence was an inconvenience to him.
Those in my party were happy with their orders; however; I chose the catch of the day and unfortunately it was the incorrect one.
Not bad, but did not live up to the reviews. We had better experiences at other restaurants both on, and not on, the top ten list.

Everything was wonderful. We had the calamari appetizer. The best we ever had. I had the short rib. Like butter. Delicious. Hubby had shrimp linguine. Also delicious. Desert was pineapple upside down cake and pana cotta. Wow. Go to a Roy’s every year for our anniversary. Always outstandingly

The food was incredible! I had the spicy tuna roll and seared ahi for dinner; my husband had surf & turf. His old fashioned was the best he’s had all week in Maui.

My only knock would be that it overlooks the golf course versus the ocean, and the tables are separated so far, it inhibits the atmosphere. But they’re doing their best under the circumstances.

We would definitely come back!

We had the prix fix menu with combo beef rib and salmon. Scalloped potatoes and vegetables. Starter was caesar salad topped with calamari. Dessert was chocolate souffle. It was all delicious. Roy's short ribs are my favorite.

We love Roy’s. This visit disappointed. The ambiance was disappointing, though the tables were nicely spaced out for COVID, the decor has aged and doesn’t show well. Our waiter didn’t even introduce himself and wasn’t all that attentive. The food was mostly great, though the Au disappointed (dry with no sauce) and the lava cake was overcooked and not that liquid-y.

15 years after his last visit, my husband was excited to return to Roy's where he had the best drink he's ever had. Unfortunately, it was no longer on the menu. However, the server tried everything to find it. He even messages his wife to search for it! We couldn't believe the extra effort, and really appreciated it. Dinner was fabulous and we enjoyed the golf course view! Also, came home and found the recipe....
Kihei Cooler
2oz Grey Goose Orange Vodka
1oz Cointreau
1oz Sweet & Sour

Good food, excellent portions and great service. Nice view of the golf course.
I actually think that for the money you spend it is a better value than Kimo's or Mama's.
