Tante's Fish Market
College Bound luncheon with Grandma!
My wife and I went here for a date night. The food was great, and although fairly expensive I feel it was worth the price. The staff was friendly, and the live music set a nice, fun ambiance.
Unfortunately, my food - lobster and crab stuffed mahi mahi with a macadamia nut crust- arrived about 20 minutes before my wifes Sushi plate. I tried to be polite and not eat, but I wound up slowly eating my full meal before her sushi arrived. This place would be great if it had better timing.
Fairly new restaurant (about a year). Great fish selections and proper cooking techniques. The main attraction here is fish but other seafood available. Scallops, shrimp, oysters. Nice variation of sweet and savory. Highly recommend.
Tante’s was a real disappointment, menu should be perfect maybe trying to offer too much. Crab was good but nothing with it. Service was OK but presentation and getting drinks to table was an issue. The biggest problem was cleanliness, windows inside and out were filthy, the kitchen windows which are large were also very dirty and the glass door into the kitchen was a mass of finger marks. Wouldn’t take much to improve, would suggest outside at Lunch probably worth a go. Real shame.
Nice atmosphere friendly people great customer service and overall great little spot
Food was good. Kayleaf was on it to serve us all around. From water to our meal. And desert!😊
We ate outside and enjoyed the view! It was perfect. We enjoyed a late lunch and happy hour. Delicious food...perfect for our last day on the island! Thank you for making it memorable!
The pork chop was so good that I had to talk to the owner who told me the pork chops are vacuum sealed individual and some other things I can't remember but food is excellent
My new favorite spot...everything was so great....we had the best view of the harbor very romantic and great entertainment. The lobster was fantastic
Perfect setting, great view, surf and turf was excellent. Enjoyable experience
I ordered a cup of clam chowder and it came with a thick layer of skin on top. I pulled it off and ate the rest, it was ok but it tasted like it came out of a can. I ordered the mahi mahi, which was ok as well if not a little bland. Would not recommend. The decor was dated, could use an update.
We were looking for a good seafood restaurant , this was not it. The restaurant itself is in a nice area with a harbor view. But the windows to look out of haven’t been washed since 1992; I got a glimpse of what glaucoma would be like.
Our server was really nice and took time to explain the menu. We asked a lot of questions and she was really sweet in answering all of them. We started out with calamari and fried oysters. Both were from the freezer, but were not bad.
I ordered the ribs and my husband ordered one of the Filipino specialities (there were a lot of them to choose from) called the Bangus. My portion of a full rack of ribs was humongous. The preparation of the ribs seemed a little off, but the were not over cooked and were ok... nothing spectacular and the Dole Pineapple Ring from a can was on top. We are in Hawaii and I would expect fresh pineapple in the recipe. The Bangus was a flattened whole fish that was fried. It had a special sauce marinade and my husband rather liked it.
Last we ordered the Filipino special desert the Halo Halo. It is a very specialized dish that was not to my liking. My husband ate it whilst I watched.
Overall, the service was good, the location is nice and the food was OK. We may or may not try again...
Thought it was a higher end fish restaurant. Probably our fault for not researching better. We were a large group (18) and one of the only guests there at the time. The waiter was good but the kitchen could not keep up. Half of our table had to wait 9 minutes to be served their entree. In my opinion the menu is way to large. They need to trim it down and focus on quality over quantity. Get rid of the food photos on the menu, dim the lights, remove the karaoke setup, serve fresh ingredients, and maybe rethink their concept. We would not return.
Best hidden treasure on the island. The lobster was delicious and string drinks
Nice, unassuming fish house near the marina. Food was uniformly excellent for party of 4 ordering across the menu. Drink menu was more than adequate as was the wine list. A good experience.
I am so happy I took my date here, we had the best meal super cheap and we're full. Cheap grinds and Ono!
Went Father's Day and had the most beautiful day with my family the food was great and cane out even though they were busy
The wait to get order in was way too long. Wasn’t as nice as I expected the place to be. Food was great but they only gave you a small serving.
Ribs Ribs Ribs are a must try! I was skeptical when I ordered them but oh my gosh they were the best ribs I've ever had on Maui. I will be back for more!
Food was superb, the establishment was very clean and Service was really good. The location is great and I see a lot of potential here as other restaurants in the same spot didn't do well Tante's will. The steak and lobster was killer
I've been back several times since the first time. I have enjoyed every dish especially the surf and turf steak and lobster! I never have room for dessert the portions are big!
Service was great the waiter was quick especially when I needed water, another drink, and ranch. My drink was super good my friend is. Taking me back there tomorrow.
Good food, nice atmosphere. Would go again. It was a very quiet Monday night.
Just an average place......service was poor although there were 2 huge parties....the food was okay, not great and the music was fantastic but so loud you couldn't speak to your dinner companions.......the setting is nice, but they need to fine tune a lot of things.
My wife ordered the ribs and I had the steak and lobster -let's just say that was one of the best anniversary dinners we ever had.. The staff was on it and the food came out fast and presented beautifully.
The staff is great the food was great everything was great!
Food was fun and good, I really enjoyed my drinks as well. Yum
BEST RIBS IVE HAD ON MAUI WOWIE! I LOVE RIBS AND SOKEOME WAS BRAGGING TO ME ABOUT HOW GREAT THE RIBS WERE WELL I TRIED THEM AND THEY ARE AMAZING. DIDNT EVEN USE A FORK..
We sat at the bar until a seat was available, the bartender was nice and our drinks were really good. I ate the steak which was cooked to perfection and my wife had fish both of us truly enjoyed our experience and look forward to coming back on the next trip!
My 2nd time coming in a week! Drinks are on point! the seafood is killa!! If you like strong drinks in a great atmosphere this is the place to go to!!
Very clean, very professional in a relaxed environment, I love the fish belly and the lobster Mmmm Sooooooooo good!
I reallyy enjoyed the steak and lobster and my drink they were so good. It was a very romantic experience
My friend and I went for drinks and for a quick bite, everything was so Ono (delicious) the Steak and Lobster was great! Surf and turf baby!! I'm going back tonight! Also The waitress was super cute and professional.
Good. Comfort food.... OMG the steak was super good. The waiter really new the menu and recommended some really good drinks.
The Ahi belly was AMAZING!! it's super cheap and Sooooooooo worth getting.. The music sounded good and wasnt to loud which was great for my date. Our waitress was kind and I had a really good maitai.
Service was fast we got our meal within 15 minutes, the drinks were super good and strong! This is my new favorite local place especially when traffic is busy going to Lahina
This is my first time coming to Tantes and I love how open it feels when you walk in. I started off by getting a nice drink from the bar while listening to their live music which sounded great. I was told to try the Steak and Lobster which I did and it was great I had to take it home there was so much. I live in Makawao and this was well worth the drive. I will be back soon!
Pay attention! Their menu states gratuity is added to parties of 8 or more, we were a party of six they added service charge and then they still gave us the credit slip with the tip option still available so unless you're paying attention you would end up double tipping the server.
The food was good but the night we went there was a band playing . It was way to loud to enjoy dinner. They also need more wait staff. Service was slow
Friendly and attentive service. Keiki menu is good and portioned. Had the fish sandwich, it was large but little taste. We’ve eaten here a few times and it’s good for lunch.
