If you are a foodie, a must try restaurant is the Class Act, located in the heart of Kahului on Maui College Campus at the Maui Culinary Academy. You will need to make reservations and you only get a chance to sample this fabulous food on Wednesdays and Fridays during lunch when the college is in session. The 5 course... More

One of the best kept dining secrets on Maui is located at the University of Hawaii - Maui College. The chefs and wait staff are all students in Restaurant Management and if our experience is indicative of what the future holds for future Iron Chefs and new and exciting restaurants it is in great hands. All 4 courses, from appetizer,... More

I was so glad to be able to enjoy this experience with my friend from Lahaina, and my daughter. We were there for the French menu. I booked on Open Table, well in advance. It was not easy though! I had to keep trying, and make a phone call as well. It's a popular place for lunch, and because they... More

As soon as you book your plane ticket to Maui, you need to book a reservation at Lei's Family Class Act! It is entirely run by culinary students, who rotate through the different shifts so they have a full range of restaurant experiences. The service was exceptional. They were extremely accommodating of the baby we had with us and rearranged... More

This is one of the best restaurants I've ever eaten at - on a par with Michelin 2 and even 3-star restaurants. the food, service, and ambiance were outstanding. Too bad they are only open during terms at Maui College where the Maui Culinary Institute is housed and only for lunch on Wednesdays and Fridays even during those periods. When... More

We've been to a number of culinary arts programs, including the CIA in Napa and Kendall College in Chicago and this "Class Act", a part of the culinary arts program at UHMaui, rocks with those others. Only open for lunch and a tough reservation to get, it's fun to talk to the students and see what they are up to... More

After 3 years of hearing about the Maui Culinary Art School I finally coordinated my Maui visit with the last week the Class Act restaurant was open before winter break. The menu was French and absolutely fabulous. True, the host mispronounced some of the French offerings, but all the student staff were trying so hard. The meal is a prix... More

If you want a fabulous lunch on Maui, do NOT miss this place! Every time we visit Maui we have a lunch here, but unfortunately their schedule doesn't always match ours! Since it is on campus, they aren't open if the school is on break or during the beginning of a semester. BUT is they are open, we always make... More

We have done French twice, Latin, Moroccan, Asian, and now finally Italian and I have never had a bad meal here. The food and service has always been excellent and top notched. It use to be a set price (e.g. $32 per person) but now they have a price range depending on what entrée you choose ($29-$36.95) and there is... More
