Hawaii's first and only Relais & Châteaux restaurant, The Restaurant at Hotel Wailea offers a European-inspired elegance infused with creative island-to-table cuisine. Menus are created around what is readily available from Maui’s own farms and fisherman ensuring that each dish is prepared using only the finest local, seasonal and artisanal products; including those grown in the restaurant’s own garden and farming operation.

From its perch on the hillside above South Maui's Wailea resort area, the restaurant offers sweeping panoramic ocean views from the upper lanai and intimate dining under the stars in the garden. Voted one of OpenTable's Top 100 Most Romantic Restaurants for 2016.

Everything was perfection. Location, ambience, the food was spectacular, and great, attentive service. We have eaten at other “best restaurants in the world” and this has topped them all. A must do if you live or are visiting Hawaii.

Amazing, oysters were best ever! Lobster, Waygu short rib. Really I’ve done Per Se in NY, French Laundry, Binkleys, Brooklyn Farr, etc. Service, wine list, food all attention to detail at highest level. My sincere appreciation to the chef for a wonderful evening. Mark the server was impeccable. Sommelier super! Well done!

Very nice setting with great sunset ocean view. Service was excellent; some servers like Mark can make it an excellent experience. Truffle risotto is outstanding, as are the Waygu Beef Shortribs and Bolognese. Soufflé, which changes regularly, is a must. Wine list could be improved in selection and price, but won’t keep us from coming back.

The restaurant was beautifully set and the tables were spaced apart for a romantic ambiance. The service was very professional. We started the evening with a delightful amuse-Bouche. There was a live musician serenading and a view of the open sky and moon. Lovely. The food was divine. I got the most simple dish on the menu, the bolognese, and even it was so uniquely and expertly prepared that it was impressive. Only praise for this highly romantic and lovely restaurant. Great for a date!!!

Food is still excellent but service was not as good as last visit. The torched ahi was delicious and the lamb chaps remain the most tender we have had. Last years birthday they allowed us to pick and dessert on the house, this year we were charged $16 for dessert. Its not the money, its the inconsistency and gesture that counts. Service was a little too casual this visit.

We wanted this to be an amazing experience, but it just wasn’t. The service was very slow, it took at least 15 minutes to get a drink after we sat down. The rolls are dry and terrible. The appetizers and entrees were exquisite. Our server was nice enough, but she was clearly in a rush the whole time.

We had a reservation and made to wait 20 minutes. Ordered and then told that menu item was no longer avaialable. Charged $10 for a bottle of San Pellegrino. Rated as romantic setting in Wialea- did not live up to billing. Understand that I am in the minority in regards to dining experience but felt really let down and left wishing I had booked a different restaurant.

Masterful preparation of fresh local ingredients made for a memorable experience. Service was friendly and efficient. We were never rushed despite being the last table for the evening. The Restaurant is definitely a stunning addition to the Hotel Wailea. We give it our highest recommendation.

Excellent dining experience. Will definitely return. Our waiter Mark was excellent. Food was phenomenal and the service was incredible. The star was the Risotto. Prices are very fair, except the Wine prices were a bit high. May bring our own bottle next time. View is incredible. I would recommend reserving around sunset. And also, come early and get a drink with James at the Pool Bar before your seating. He's an excellent mixologist. Solid 9.5 experience!

Chef Zach Sato prepared his signature six course Treehouse Tasting Menu for us on the last night of our honeymoon at this Relais & Châteaux gem. What a treat. Locally sourced ingredients superbly prepared in the spirit of both local and world traditions.

The meal was perfectly staged and presented by the professional yet friendly staff on the lanai with unmatched views of the Maui Coast. Excellent!
