Farm-to-table
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.

The only thing that marred the experience was a large group of 8 "thirty-somethings" that thought they were in a sports bar. When the maitre"d asked how everything was, I suggested that he ask them to quiet their conversation. He smiled sheepishly and said "some people are loud" and walked away. I went to the table and asked them myself and they quieted some what.

We ate at the restaurant on our first night at the Hotel Wailea. It came very highly recommended and did not disappoint! My wife has many food allergies and restrictions, but this did not pose a problem as both our server, Mark, and the chef went above and beyond to make sure that everything was “just right.” The chef was concerned that the sauce for her fish would be alright, so he sent out a sample for her to try. It was excellent! Then again, so was our entire meal. It was a culinary experience to delight the palate and an aesthetic experience to feed soul. Who could ask for more? Well, perhaps a return visit very soon.

We went to the Restaurant at the Hotel Wailea looking for a special place to celebrate our 10th Anniversary and we were not disappointed. We wanted an elegant dinner, with fabulous food that was quiet enough to allow for a romantic conversation. Check on all criteria.

My spouse is a vegetarian, so we also wanted her to be able to enjoy her dinner. It isn’t on the menu, but the chef created a delicious vegetarian plate showcasing a number of the items that show up on the menu as sides. There were also some very interesting vegetarian appetizers, two of which are shown in the photos attached.

The wine list is interesting. My only complaint is that the by-the-glass options, unless you want the very pricy coravin options, is quite limited and pedestrian.

Fantastic gem in Wailea. Hotel Wailea is not one of the string of beachfront resorts, instead being somewhat hidden a short distance from the shore. However, everything we had here was amazing - cocktails, appetizers (oysters on the half shell and charred octopus), and entrees (steamed local fish, scallops, and duck breast).

Every dish was unique and bursting with flavor, featuring fresh local ingredients when possible. Coupled with the fantastic, attentive service and beautiful view, this is somewhere we will visit again.

Note that despite the hotel being adults only, children are welcome at the restaurant.

I originally booked with Ruth Chris steak house to Celebrate our 17th Anniversary and decided to book here instead after reading amazing reviews.

We were both greeted with a smile at check in and a warm Congratulations in celebrating our Anniversary, and a glass each of bubbly when we sat at our table.

Our main server, and table assistant was very attentive to our needs through out the evening which made us feel really special. The views are to die for and the open air setting makes it extra special.

We are both Kama'aina and finding a restaurant that delivers from beginning to end is far and few in between. Be rest assured your experience here will be one of the best dinning experience you'll ever receive.

We dined here Oct 5 2018, and I already booked for a return on my 56th Birthday in December. Yes, we found a new favorite to Celebrate our special occasions.

The restaurant itself is spectacular ... overlooking the Pacific from an elevated viewpoint.

The food and service match the hotel and atmosphere... all outstanding.

I have dined at many restaurants on Maui ... from the Lahaina Grill to Ferraro’s at the Four Seasons.... in my opinion The Restaurant at the Hotel Wailea is clearly the best!
