My first time here - a good experience. started out with a half dozen oysters – – they were large, plump, and had a nice briney flavor. I had the Seafood Luau, which was prepared with coconut milk. For the money, it was a very good entrée. The seafood was fresh, and the flavor was excellent. The chicken teriyaki kept it from an additional star — nothing to write home about. I’ll be returning.

Servers were friendly and efficient. Fish was probably fresh but overcooked. Part of the food was unrecognizable and oily. Going there with the expectation of fresh, simply prepared fish will leave you disappointed.

Very noisy.

The place is overrated. I wouldn't try it again.

Food quality was terrible. Service was ok. This was the worst place we dined at during our week long trip to Maui. Very disappointing. The food was either too salty, too fishy tasting, or bland. Expected super fresh fish. Would not recommend.

The best coconut shrimp of my life! Everything was very good, only thing I noticed is we ordered our steaks medium but they were more medium well. They were still very good. Our waitress was amazing, she switched from lunch menu to dinner menu to us and was very attentive. Our drinks never ran out. The Mai Tai’s were great as well! Would definitely recommend.

Did not like. Reviews were ok for inexpensive meal option so thought it would be good. We ordered lobster tail and the strip steak so we could split meals. Their Surf and Turf option for $29 was with a sirloin steak. We wanted the better steak so just ordered two separate meals to share.
We should have saved the money and ordered their combo as the “prime” strip we ordered simply had no flavor and was tough.
Regretted going there for dinner and wasting money.

Tante’s is great! The fresh fish is the freshest and it’s a great value.
I would suggest they work on upgrading or enhancing their margaritas, and use fresh ingredients to do it!

We (party of two) were seated before our reservation time which was appreciated. The restaurant had plenty of locals in it celebrating birthdays. Our server was friendly and mostly attentive (disclaimer - I noticed that most, if not all, Maui restaurants are doing business with less waiters, a consequence of COVID I suspect). The value for the food here is impressive. One tiny complaint is that the seafood was slightly over cooked (steamed). The portions of the food made up for it though. Also, I judge a restaurant on two things: 1) would I go back? Yes. 2) would I recommend this restaurant to others visiting Maui? Yes.

Tante’s is strategically located half way between the airport and our hotel in Kaanapali. A great place to kick off our Hawaiian vacation with great fish that include local favorite, friendly staff and the view of the marina and water just complete it the mix. Add it to your first day.

Advertised specials not offered at table, steak was lower grade, thin cut, overcooked and dry. Sashimi was disappointing. Oysters sup par. And "lobster stuffed" mahi was actually just topped with some kind of eggy patty that might have had some lobster in it.

We heard about Tante’s on the radio... $29.95 steak and lobster! That was a no brained to try... Absolutely delicious! Large portions...NY Strip and lobster both cooked exactly to our liking...garlic mashed potatoes and garden salad... Our waiter Sean was was very friendly! Extremely fast service! Beautiful view of the Maalaea Harbor and Haleakala... Highly recommend Tante’s and we will definitely be back next year on our visit to Maui!

I reserved a table outside and specifically stated it was a 60th Birthday celebration. All of which was completely ignored.
Upon arrival, 15 min prior to reservation we were told to wait outside. We had planned to have cocktails while waiting for our table and ordering appetizers.
We waited outside, disregarded.
Table was ok. Did have an ocean view over the heads of others.
Appetizer was ordered, drinks arrived, waiting, waiting, dinner arrived and then the appetizer. Was able to order a 2nd cocktail, once our meal arrived.
Your bathroom was disgusting, beyond filthy. If I had gone in their prior to ordering food, I would have left.
This COVID nonsense has give every business the opportunity to clean up, re-fresh business. I’m one of those restaurants struggling.
Very disappointed

One of the best meal deals in the island. I had Tante’s trio, which at $25.00 is a great deal. Tasty (Buerre Blanc sauce is simply outstanding) served hot, excellent service. Wife had fresh Mong which was also excellent. Will definitely add Tante’s to our “go to” list when we are on Maui.

The food was great! It was one of the few places we could get reservations while we were on Maui. It was further from Ka’anapali Beach than we wanted, but nit a bad drive and we’re glad to find it. We are going back before we leave!

Rude waitress. First thing she informed us when we sat down for our reservation was that the kitchen was closed. Her way of telling us to hurry it up. I got the seafood trio and the scallops were tiny, the fish was low quality and the sauce had very little flavor. I wouldn’t go again.

We were not seated according to our reservations as several guests walked up and were offered best view seating without reservations. After several minutes of waiting past our reservation time, we were seated. The waiter was very pleasant, explained the menu items and offered us fresh bread (warm) for the table. The clam chowder soup was warm to the palette and very tasty. We all ordered the fresh mahi mahi with vegetables and slaw and it was all very good. The bathroom needed more attention as it was not very clean but other than that it was a pretty good experience for eating.
