dining: Brazilian Steakhouse Night at the Four Seasons Resort, Wailea Maui - 06/25/18 03:40 PM
Have you ever tried one of those Brazilian Steakhouse events that are becoming popular these days?  The Four Seasons Resort in Wailea Maui is now offering this on Friday nights, at their Duo Steak and Seafood Restaurant at the pool level.  I had the opportunity to try it out with a group of YELPers.  It's indoor/outdor seating with a view of the pool and the sunset, in an oceanfront setting.  We were treated royally, as you would expect from a 5-star hotel on Maui.
Here's the contact info if you'd like to make a reservation:

Best table in the house - our view from Mama's Fish House on Maui
We are very lucky to live close to one of the best fine dining restaurants on Maui, so whenever possible we love to have an early dinner or late lunch here at Mama's Fish House Restaurant.  During the daytime the views are just beautiful from this oceanfront setting, and when you have a front row table this is as good as it gets.

On this afternoon the air was very clear and you can see the island of Molokai way off in the background. There's a little sandy beach … (15 comments)

UPDATE - THE GREEK OVEN CLOSED IN JUNE 2018 - THEY MOVED BACK TO GREECE.
 
We have been eagerly waiting for The Greek Oven to open up in downtown Haiku, in the Aloha Aina Center on Maui.  This most recent addition to the food scene is a nice little shop right across from Nuka and next to Veg Out.  Obviously they serve Greek food, and baked goods, and strive to feel like an authentic eatery on a Greek island!

dining: Mediterranean Grill food truck in Haiku Maui HI - 11/02/16 01:40 PM
 If you get a chance to eat at the Mediterranean Grill food truck in Haiku Maui, you'll be glad you did.  This is some authentic ethnic food that's not so easy to find on the island.
Call Ahead for your orders 808 868-3518
 
Yes we have a lot of food diversity here in Hawaii, but mostly it's of the Asian kind, and there's nothing wrong with that.  Pacific Asian fusion is all the rage in the high end restaurants and those combinations can make for some amazing dining, but... Greek food makes my mouth water.

dining: The scenery at The Mill House Restaurant at Maui Tropical Plantation - 09/07/16 11:43 AM
I've been hearing a lot about the Mill House Restaurant at Maui Tropical Plantation, so pulled in the other day while driving by.  I wasn't hungry enough to eat but I was curious to see what they have done by way of incorporating some old sugar mill features into their landscape. 
What a surprise to see the creative use of some old huge gears and other interesting machinery.  How did they ever come up with this?  What a great way to preserve a little bit of Maui's history.

One of these days I'll stop in for a lunch or dinner and get … (10 comments)

dining: Kula Bistro serves up authentic homestyle cooking in Kula Maui - 08/28/16 06:02 AM
Kula Bistro  on Lower Kula Road, serves up delicious authentic homestyle cooking in Kula, at reasonable prices.  Sandwiches and salads, pastas and pizzas, all done in a creative way with the oversight of head Chef Luciano Zanon.  Come and enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner in a lovely upcountry setting.

This restaurant has changed hands a few times over the years, and this time it's a keeper. The location is really great for people who live in Kula since there's not many places to have a decent sit-down meal.  You'll find them right across from Morihara Store, and there's plenty of off-street parking.

dining: Casanova Restaurant in Makawao for dining and dancing - 07/31/16 12:33 PM
Best on Maui.  One of the best places in upcountry Maui for dancing would be Casanova Restaurant in Makawao, right on the corner of Baldwin Ave. and Makawao Ave.
1188 Makawao Ave.  Call them at: 808 572-0220
History:  It all started in 1986 with the Casanova Deli which was a bit hit and soon expanded into the full restaurant next door in 1989.  Authentic Italian food and coffee was just what this area needed. This building has been around a long time, and was the USO for marines during World War II.  Previous incarnations of the restaurant include Club Rodeo, and Piero's … (2 comments)

Try Pangea - a new restaurant in downtown Haiku Maui
We are so lucky in Haiku with all the great restaurants and food trucks offering such a wide variety of foods when you don't feel like cooking...burger, pizza, Thai food, Japanese sushi, Chinese food, vegetarian, and more.

The latest new addition we tried recently is Pangea, which took over from Hana Hou, in the parking lot at the Haiku Marketplace, at the intersection of Kokomo Rd. and Haiku Rd.  The atmosphere is pretty much the same as before, with indoor tables and a small bar, along with outside seating … (4 comments)

Maui featured on Parts Unknown with Anthony Bourdain
The Maui episode of this TV show will air June 14, 2015, on CNN.  I wonder what foods they will be eating?  I've seen the show enough to know it's usually something a littel offbeat, and sometimes outright disgusting. What about poi dog, like the Hawaiians used to eat?  That would be interesting!
Nah, probably just ordinary stuff that you can find at many local eateries serving island kind favorites. We are very lucky to have so many influences and flavors from around the world!

dining: Great food at Nuka in Haiku Maui Hawaii - 01/31/15 11:20 AM
Great food at Nuka in Haiku Maui Hawaii
We had another great dinner the other night at Nuka in downtown Haiku Maui. It's a Japanese restaurant and sushi house, but they are always trying new things. This time we tried the Dynamite dish which consists of scallops and mushrooms and a yummy cheese sauce. It's not typical Japanese fare but it sure was good. Very rich and satisfying.
Of course we also had some other good dishes.  A platter of sushi made with extremely fresh local fish. They really know how to prepare it and present it. The Asian Fries were another … (4 comments)
