Convenient that the two best restauranats on the island are at the same hotel. Ko's is always a delight: the food is interesting and perfectly prepared and the staff are both friendly and knowledgeable. We go back as often as we can.

Let me preface this by saying that I LOVE my hotel. However, they didn't have what I was looking for, so they pointed me to Kô. Nick (the bartender) not only knew what I wanted to drink, based upon the very little information I provided him about what I like (that is the sign of talent in bar tending), but... More

Located inside the Fairmont Kea Lani - be sure to make your reservation early. Great menu with pacific/Polynesian choices as well as standard mainland dishes. Very nice restaurant with great service.

Our favorite restaurant. The food is always fabulous. Every meal of fish from appetizers to main courses. The tables overlook the gardens of the Fairmont

6 couples- sushi was fantastic and shrimp rolls are worth getting as an appetizer. I had the bean soup for a meal- very very good. The rest of my table had salads- all said the food was excellent. Atmosphere was very nice- highly recommend.

The restaurant is located in the majestic Fairmont Hotel. As you walk down the stairs to the restaurant, the majesty is lost and replaced by a ho hum cafeteria style facility. There is no ambiance, despite the servers trying to be as pleasant as they can be. Food was tasty ( Kobe beef poke, lamb chops and Zarzuela) but served... More

We have been to many high end restaurants in South Maui and this one never disappoints. We have been to their bar a few times and really enjoyed the Pupus, but this time we continued on for dinner as well. I was very surprised by the quality of food and attention to the details. We were treated very well and... More

My husband and I were vacationing in Maui when it happened to be restaurant week. What better way to sample some really great food and a great price? After perusing the pre-fixe menus of all the restaurants featured, we decided to make a reservation at Ko at the Fairmont Kea Lani. (There were still options within the pre-fixe menu.) Ko... More

Our visit was disappointing. We had a nice table and a sweet waitress, but it was offset by the noisy restaurant. To start, my mai-tai was much too syrupy and sweet to drink. The salad was the best part of the meal. It was fresh and crisp, with a light passion fruit vinaigrette. Our fish of the day, (whose name... More

My husband and I came here for dinner and the food was delicious. We had the calamari, lavender honey macadamia nut shrimp and lobster tempura - all of which were good. We had great service. The only downside is that there is not a view from this restaurant, it is by the pools, not on the ocean.
