The most striking thing about this restaurant is its location right on the beach. Given that, they could get away with mediocre food, but that's not the case. We had a group of six tonight for an early (sunset) meal and everyone enjoyed (for the most part) what they'd ordered. Among us we had: calamari appetizer (crisp and light); asparagus... More

we had a 5:00 reservation and showed up at 4:45 and had drinks and appetizers at the bar while our table was being handled. We were seating at a waterfront table at 5:10 and everything was fabulous. Bread and drinks were wonderful. We ordered the veal and seafood risotto. Both outstanding. We also got the penne pasta which was outstanding.... More

We had breakfast here, I had loco moco, my husband had Huevos Rancheros. I have never seen Huevos served with tortilla chips, always with a soft tortilla, not exactly what my husband or I expected. My loco moco was just ok, burger was overcooked and crunchy, not the way it is made here by the locals, mushroom gravy was a... More

We stayed very near this restaurant and found it ideally placed for almost-on-the beach dining, for breakfast or dinner. The view is splendid, the food we had delicious, the staff friendly and fast. There is even a tree right outside where at least a thousand birds come to chatter and flit at sunset. Then they shut up and the meal... More

is Sarento"s on the Beach!. We made a reservation for 5:30 in order to be seated directly at the front with nothing but sea, sky, and sand in front of us. I asked specifically for this seating and was not disappointed. I was a bit concerned upon entry and found the restaurant to be full, but the hostess assured me... More

We visited Sarentos with another couple while visiting Maui. Very good service and wine list. Enjoyed the Spring Green salad. Perfect to split between two people. The fresh fish of the day was excellent. The chef even used a different fish that I requested. Everyone was very helpful and friendly. We have eaten here before and are never disappointed.

Read the online menu, made a reservation for dinner. Arrived, didn't see the food I wanted that was listed on the online menu, also prices were $20 higher. Asked about it, was told the online menu needs to be updated it's out of date. Yes it is out of date, so why don't you update the menu with current prices
