We have been to Ko several times with friends and it has always been excellent, nice atmosphere,
great food and a fun experience. The details of the menu are unique and the presentation is beautiful. The servers are always helpful and caring. The fish is always good.

During our stay at the Fairmont Kea Lani we had one lunch and three dinners there and were never disappointed. The wait is very friendly and explains the dishes very well.

Everything on the dinner menu was so tempting we went twice within 4 days. Each time, the four of us ordered something different - appetizer, entree and dessert - so that we could share. The presentation, the food, the service is all beyond reproach. We were seated so that we had a perfect view of the sunset which added to the already fantastic ambiance. Don't need a special occasion to dine here although the experience certainly was special.

We stayed at The Fairmont, so we decided to try Ko for lunch. It was good, but it's pricey for a lunch. No other real complaints.

Aloha! We’re thrilled that you enjoyed Kō's plantation-era inspired cuisine, especially the paella (a plantation favorite!). It's so gratifying to learn that you found Kō to be some of the best food on Maui - what a fantastic compliment! Please be assured that your kind comments will be passed on to Corkey, Luiz and Kendra. Mahalo and we hope to see you again soon!
