Named after Hawaii’s state fish, this open-air restaurant is right on the water at the Grand Wailea Resort. Expect at least two surprise marriage proposals per meal and some of the best sunset views on the island under the Polynesian-style thatched roofs. Like most resort restaurants, it’s pricey, but the food and the atmosphere at Humuhumu make it worthwhile. The menu is made up of upscale takes on traditional Hawaiian dishes, like the glazed octopus - a twist on classic luau food - and a Kona lobster ramen that’s probably the fanciest bowl of noodles on the island.

The Mill House
Though it’s a 20-30 minute drive from the main tourist areas, The Mill House is one of the most beautiful restaurants on the island.
Mala Ocean Tavern
Mala is so close to the shoreline you’ll feel like you’re eating on top of the water - come with a few people and order lots of tapas-style dishes.
The dining room of Merriman’s looks out over Kapalua Bay on the west side, so you’ll have perfect views while eating the local, farm-to-table dishes.
