Dinner service upstairs begins at 5pm, so since we were early, we ate outside downstairs at their Beachside Grill. This is adjacent to the Beach Walk and on the beach side of Whaler's Village. We had a great experience..... great food, good service, and a beautiful view. We definitely plan to return!
Food tip: can substitute a salad for fries with the mahi mahi fish and chips and the Cobb salad was very good and with a nice presentation.

Absolutely the best. I'm from California where fish tacos are a staple, so I should know. I should say, we should know. My wife and I pronounce theses the best fish tacos we have ever eaten. The fish, Ono, is not shredded. A large slab of the fish is placed inside the tortilla. Combine it with the other included ingredients and you have a delicious meal. One is enough. We both ordered two, then needed to box the other ones up for the next day. By the way, this was at Leilani's Beachside Grill, which is below the main restaurant.

Had a lovely meal here with my parents while on holiday in Maui. We all enjoyed our food and had to get a serving of the Hula pie for dessert. So yummy! The place is a little on the pricier side, but the food is delicious, and the service was really good. We had Katie as our server, she was great. I would suggest making a booking, rather than just rocking up.

Outstanding, impeccable service provided by Nate. We travel to Leilani's at least 3 times a year and always request Nate. The ambiance is amazing and food delicious. The parmesan crusted Mong Chong Fish is one of our favorites. Ask for extra sauce.

Our server (I forget his name but he’s originally from Oregon) was fantastic! Super friendly and recommended a few dishes on the menu. The fresh catch prepared with crusted macadamia nuts, herbed potatoes and veggies was wonderful! My husband and I are staying at the Westin Maui and the whole whalers village is right within walking distance. So happy to have quality restaurants so close! It was only a 5 minute walk along the beach for us, but I think they have a parking for guests not staying right in the resort area.
