“Good Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014

Really good food but expensive for some items, also a great atmosphere and good service. Also is that theres a fish pond under the restaurants and its cool to watch them.

“Great views, fun spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014

We were staying at the Grand Wailea and found this to be a great place for later afternoon cocktails. The bar tender even taught us how to pronouce the name of the place.

“Easy, Quick & Good Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014

I typically like to skip the hotel restaurants. We were on east coast time, and tired early, so we gave Humuhumu a try. They have an appetizer special for $24 a person that is perfect. Scallops, ribs, shrimp, and more. A perfect light meal! Our daughter also loved the stuffed animal of the state fish (a humuhumunukunukuapua). Nice touch! The service was excellent.

“Beautiful view/Average food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014

We wanted to dine here to see the sunset. It is a beautiful place for that. The staff was very nice but I think the food was average and very much over-priced.

“Poor service, not a value for the cost”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2014 via mobile

We stayed at a different hotel but decided to try this restaurant for the fun name and recommendations. The food itself tasted very good, but unfortunately we were disappointed in the service and portion sizes. We had reservations but we're still see you there in about 15 minutes late. Once seated, a server did not greet us for at least 5 minutes to even ask if we wanted drinks. The server only stopped by one or two times the entire evening. She didn't ask how the food was or if she could fill our water.

I have to get back to the service was not a coincidence, as even though we did not stay at the property, we had come by earlier in the week to shop. Unfortunately the service by other staff seems to be about the same. Very few people greeted you or seem to the notice you at the property. The only exception to this was Max, the bartender at the restaurant. Very friendly and helpful!

Overall, good food, but we probably would not go back. Definitely not enough value for the price.

Thank Gina A
