Had one lunch and one dinner here during my recent stay. Both times the food was delicious and the service wonderful. The terrace is cool and relaxing. You can eat while listening to the waves and watching the people on the beach path.

We went to Leilani's for dinner on our last night in Maui. What a great choice, we both had their fish and they were delicious, along with salads. The seating was right by the glass partition that overlooks their downstairs site along the beach boardwalk....More

I initially couldn’t see any vegetarian food options on the menu, however our waiter happily obliged in reeling off a number of items available. The food was fresh and delicious and the view was beautiful. Would happily recommend.

I talked my husband into trying them after having some bad experiences with other fish tacos. Voted best? For a reason. We both enjoyed them / the flavors were amazing. Great view and great service. Enjoyed happy hour.

We have eaten here many times but loved the new renovation. They opened the dining room up so everyone can see the Sunset. The service and food were excellent. Definitely, recommended it.

We love the fish tacos and the nachos! Great quick lunch! It is a place that we visit each year when we go to Maui. Our server was great as well.

The happy hour was very reasonable for Maui. The fish tacos, however, were the bomb. I eat fish tacos when I find them on the menu so I've had a lot of variety and these were the best I recall having eaten. Go just for...More

Have eaten here a few times and enjoyed the food and drinks but this time the food was more bland and lacklustre, not sure if we went during an off night or if there has been a staff change which precipitated the food going downhill....More

Yes, they had lots of gluten free options. If the server didn't know, she found out. Also you could substitute something for a gluten free option if the side wasn't gluten free
