Delightful dining on Maui at humuhumunukunukuapua'a at Grand Wailea Maui

A heavenly lagoon setting for a Maui sunset dinner

Patti & Richard Pietschmann

The name, humuhumunukunukuapua'a, is quite a mouthful. It is the name of Hawaii’s state fish.  The restaurant is actually a wooden, Polynesian thatch-roof structure that floats on a lovely lagoon at the Grand Wailea Maui ( and was newly redesigned in December 2016). The menu is an easy to navigate selections of Hawai’i Seasonal Cuisine highlighted by delicious Island fish and meat entrees with Polynesian or Hawaiian influences created by Chef Mike Lofaro.

My Maui trio, husband/writing partner Richard, our friend Bob from Seattle,
made our yearly pilgrammage to Humu (how most people refer to it) the other night.

Here's we ate along with martinis for the boys and Chard for me:

Super scallops
This goat cheesecake is outstanding

Hamachi happiness

Contented Richard

Humu is romantic for a couples sunset dinner and ideal for family or friends outing. Do make a reservation but get to there early enough to walk around this amazing hotel and stop for a drink at the outstandingly glam lobby bar.
