Hawaii’s first and only Relais & Châteaux restaurant, The Restaurant at Hotel Wailea offers a 'culinary casual' experience with creative island-to-table cuisine. Menus are created around what is readily available from Maui’s 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 orchard.

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 in the US, and Top 10 Restaurants in Hawaii.

Exquisite flavors and picture perfect dinners. A very intimate experience as we were one of the last reservations and was one of the most amazing dining experiences I have ever had. Prefix menu had incredible flow of flavors that complimented one bite to the next. It was very dark and wish I was able to enjoy the scenery and the ocean views a bit more. All in all this hillside gem was worth the 5 star experience that it was rumored to be. Quite pricey, but worth it. Can't wait to stay in the hotel someday.

Always a great meal, tasting portions are small but sufficient for tasting and let you have a nice sampling of flavors. Pricey, but for a special meal while on a nice vacation, not unexpected

The sashimi was room temperature and tasted old. Burrata salad was ok. Our server was polite and informative. The venue is lovely as always in that architecturally exquisite hotel. We miss Kapiche and noticed the difference. Will we return? Probably but only to the bar.

View: phenomenal. Sat us right on the corner on the balcony. Food: oysters are the best I have ever had! Small but full of flavor. Staying at the hotel so the restaurant “looks” I am already spoiled by them but all open air and clean and pictures don’t do this place justice.

Restaurant Wailea is a great choice overall for many reasons especially the great view that can provide one of the best spots on the island to watch the sunset. We enjoyed everything but the duck entree was a disappointment. I have had this dish on previous visits but this time the preparation changed and unfortunately the skin was not only limp and chewy but also some connective tissue was left on the breast resulting in unpalletable bites and was not what you'd expect from a restaurant of this caliber. Nonetheless the Ahi poke squid ink chip is some of the best around

Came here to celebrate my birthday on the 27th of February and this place is nothing short of magical.
The setting, the service, the drinks and the food was so delicious.
We had the truffle risotto, scallops and lobster.
Just amazing all the way around.

The food was unbelievably good and we loved the intimate dinner setting and view! Get a table below sunset and the view is beautiful. Service was great, very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. Would recommend this to anyone looking for a great meal, romantic meal or with a small group.

We thoroughly enjoyed our second meal here this week.

The Amberjack special was so special, perfectly prepared, with a hint of ginger. Delicious. We also had the

Truffled Risotto-oh my goodness! Just fabulous.

Don’t miss the Ahi Hawaiian Poke Crackers. Outstanding!!!

We were at the Hotel for dinner twice during our 10 day stay. It is by far the best restaurant in Wailea from our experience. Expensive like all Maui fine dining but worth it. Beautiful veranda to watch sunsets as you dine. Innovative food. Best lobster in a long time. Great service.

We went for our Valentine’s Day dinner. It was a beautiful setting. Wish we had a better view of the sunset. Being that we’re locals we figured the people visiting Maui don’t see this everyday, so we’ll settle for what we got. The service was great! The ambiance was romantic and the food was delicious. We enjoyed splurging on a nice evening out. Very grateful for the experience.
