Delicious, Creative With Epic Views Of The Ocean!
Some friends recommended Honu in Maui, and what a recommendation! Owners, Chef Mark Ellman, and his wife Judy have a gem. The food is creative and fresh; the 180-degree view of the Pacific Ocean and the islands of Lanai and Molokai is amazing. Our only problem was that we did not have room to graze through more of the menu and thus enjoy the view for the entire day.
The staff takes the restaurant’s motto “Practice Aloha” to heart, they are very nice and very professional. Mark is also one of 12 chefs that formed the Hawaii Regional Cuisine Movement. A sincere thank you to Karen who graciously sat us without a reservation and Monica who made us one of the best cocktails we have ever had.
