Italian food is my husband's favorite, so we were excited to try Pulehu. The hostess seated us at a table bordering the major thorough fare for the wait staff and guests while quieter tables were available. She was nice enough to move us to a different table when we asked. Unfortunately, the food wasn't anything to write home about. We... More

We have been visiting the Westin Kaanapali Ocean Villas North for a few years and had yet to try Pulehu restaurant out. It has become our new favorite restaurant in Kaanapali and we didn't even have to get in the car to visit it! If you get there early when the restaurant opens you can be one of the lucky... More

We had the chance to try the three course dinner special last week, what an awesome experience. The quality of the food was exquisite and the service is top notch. We had a table in front of the pond, so it felt special for our anniversary in Maui. We were told this is the best classy restaurant on Maui... we... More

We reserved and went to a three course dinner special. Had several salad, entree and dessert options. Our choices were excellent. The special cost $41 per person and was worth every penny.

After roaming all over the island eating, we wanted to keep it simple, so we booked a reservation to just go down to the in-house restaurant for the Westin. It had pretty decent TA reviews after all. We had a reservation, got there a couple minutes early, and waited about 10 for a table. Great views over the koi pond,... More

We dined here tonight with my two boys and my mom. We had a great server but when one of my boys got his fettucine Alfredo with shrimp; it was half the portion that my other son had for just Fettucine Alfredo. The reason - less pasta to make room for three shrimp!! I had to pay for an extra... More

We had a lovely dinner here on our last night in Maui. My husband and two kids split the wagyu beef and said it was to die for! Ambviance was great! Good wine list too!

We are owners at the Westin KOR and have been to Pulehu many times on each of our holiday visits back to our resort. Pulehu has changed and not for the better! First off, there are no more breadsticks (something mentioned in so many reviews I read). We look forward to them but we're told they don't have them anymore.... More
