The beach view was amazing and the service was excellent. I ordered the chicken sandwich and it came out way undercooked. They were very apologetic and tried to make up for it. However, it pretty much ruined it for me. On a better note, the Bloody Mary was to die for. Would try this place again but would definitely check... More

Enjoying west Maui for a bit of a family reunion with 12 adults and 4 young kids, and we decided to head to Lahaina to walk around and enjoy some dinner. With such a large group we weren't expecting the nicer restaurants try and squeeze us in on short notice, but Koa's immediately welcome us. They put us on their... More

Our first stop on the Hawaii Tasting Tours was a real treat with delicate Mahi-Mahi fish in a delightful sauce and a nice refreshing glass of wine. The views from the deck over the ocean were lovely.

This is not an inexpensive place to eat, but you are paying for the food and the view. Both were worth the price if the weather is good. We had called earlier in the week for reservations. Our table was available at the time of the reservation and was located on the edge with an unobstructed view of the ocean,... More

Hits the spot for a nice lunch stop on tour at the Northern end of the main Front Street tourist shops. Two level restaurant with open air lower level virtually "over water" and a less shady roof terrace. Both restaurant areas with panoramic ocean views. Unusually hospitable staff for a tourist zone. Low-tech food (fish, burgers, salads, fries) but well... More

Probably my favorite breakfast restaurant in Maui that we went to. Better than Gazebo for omelettes and the mixed fruit dish was the best variety of fruits I've had anywhere. They served blueberries, pichu berries, dragon fruit, strawberries, blackberries, and pineapple. It doesn't open until 9 but waiting for Gazebo takes forever so this is smarter if you just want...

Enjoyed a nice lunch with friends on a warm Sunday. BLT was excellent with French Fries while wife chose Sweet Potato Fries. She says best BLT she has ever had. Friends had maui waui (shrimp salad) and although the order got a little confused they came through in the end. Average was the general concensus on those with only 2... More

Six of us dined at sunset. The lower dining room is compact with about 10 or 12 tables. Although our table was in the "second row", it was O high top that allowed our entire party an unobstructed view of the sunset. My tuna was top notch, as was the mahi mahi, but these were the only two items locally... More

I recently visited Maui and travelled to Lahaina with the intention of finding a place for breakfast. We happened on to Koa's restaurant and could not have been happier! It is a laid back, fun place with a small fight shop in the front, and tables in the back facing the ocean and the island of Lanai in the distance.... More

Koa's has some of the same menu items but adds things like fish tacos and other entrées. Food and service are Gazebo quality without standing in line outside. Great views, too.
