$50 and over
About the restaurant
Nestled in the hills of Ka'u, enjoy an unrivaled dining experience that combines breathtaking panoramic views with an exceptional culinary journey. Being a truly Mauka to Makai experience (meaning from the mountain to the sea in Hawaiian), you can view the top of Mauna Loa and the Ka'u coastline while enjoying locally sourced ingredients from Mauka to Makai.

Embracing the spirit of the islands, we take pride in highlighting the Canoe Crop ingredients - native plants cultivated by the early Polynesian settlers who arrived in Hawaii by canoe. These ingredients, deeply rooted in Hawaiian history, add a unique and authentic touch to our dishes. We work closely with nearby farmers and fishermen to ensure that most ingredients used in our dishes are locally grown or sustainably foraged from the surrounding lands and ocean. This supports the local community and allows us to create dishes that are incredibly fresh, bursting with flavor, and in harmony with the natural rhythms of the island.

It was a delightful experience! When I told the local winery I had a booking here, they said I was really lucky as it’s a special event that has an excellent reputation, and they were right! The drive up had beautiful views, only fully appreciated from the top where the dining area is. I am amazed that the farm-to-table experience was so well-crafted with respect to local utilization. Every dish was beautifully plated and offered a balanced palette. I love that everything I ate not only tasted complex and delicious, but it also nourished my body. What a skill to be high-end in craft and true to the farm life! The staff is knowledgeable and kind and eager to share their love of the land. If you worry about driving at night and don’t mind a camping experience, you can stay the night. So glad I found this gem and will tell all my friends about it. I can’t wait to go back!

I come to Maui regularly and am disappointed in myself for not making it up here sooner! The place is absolutely amazing. The tasting experience and café we’re both top-notch. They also have some very cool merchandise for really reasonable prices. The food and spirits were both very tasty, and the staff were friendly, knowledgable and had a good sense of humor. I highly recommend making the trip up to Kula for this sweet spot!

We had a beautiful view of the ocean. All the food is locally sourced. Henry our waiter was a fountain of information. We had the chef special swordfish, the banana spring rolls with home made ice cream and a Hawaiian Punch drink. Would go back for sure

The device was wonderful. They were all very attentive. It was very quiet at 7:30 am for breakfast. The food was delicious but not quite enough for my growing 15 year old son.

Beautiful semi outdoor dining room…sounds of the beach are a great background to delicious sushi and pizza. Pricey but you’re also paying for the view, music and hula dancer. We liked it.
