Kaʻanapali's varied restaurants mostly operate out of its big hotels. While there are dozens of tiki-lit atmospheric settings and excellent dishes to be tried – from Hawaiian delicacies of Roy’s to melt-in-the mouth sashimi at Japengo – there are also restaurants supporting local produce and trade including independent eateries Hula Grill & Barefoot Bar, with its excellent pupu menu, and the canteen-style Joey's Kitchen serving poke bowls, mahimahi tacos and coconut shrimp with fries.

Venture to nearby Lahaina, for even more options and just as many of Maui’s top chefs.
