Fodor's Expert Review Feast at Lele
This place redefines the luau by crossing it with Islands-style fine dining in an intimate beach setting. Each course of this succulent sit-down meal is prepared by the award-winning Pacific'O restaurant, and coincides with the island cultures—Hawaiian, Samoan, Aotearoan, Tahitian—featured onstage. Wine, spirits, and cocktail options are copious and go beyond the usual tropical concoctions. Lahaina's gorgeous sunset serves as the backdrop to the show, which forgoes gimmicks and pageantry for an authentic expression of Polynesian chants and dances. Lele, by the way, is a more traditional name for Lahaina.
