When I made our reservation on the phone, I mentioned that I was a vegetarian and gluten free. When our waiter introduced himself, he mentioned both of my dietary restrictions and proceeded to point out which items would be safe for me to eat and drink. There were no vegetarian entrees listed on the menu, but the waiter described two gluten free tofu dishes for me to choose from. I went with the banana curry, which was amazing. When they brought out the bisque and bread for my husband, they brought me a small appetizer of pickled cucumbers and carrots, which was delicious! We also ate the mushroom appetizer and lilikoi creme brulee for dessert. Both were excellent! Every time they set anything down in front of me, they reiterated that it was gluten free. I love when restaurants do this as it saves me the step of double-checking! On the whole, we were very impressed with the food and the service!
Absolutely divine! Worth the cost. The penang curry was the best I've had in my life due to the amazing ingredients (mahi mahi, hearts of palm, snow peas, etc.) and the excellent toppings (mango chutney is incredible with the fish!). We watched wind surfers from the shore after lunch.
We made reservations and they called us the day prior to our visit to confirm my food allergy. While they didn't have a GF menu, the waitress was quite knowledgeable. Was able to enjoy a shashimi appetizer, mahi mahi entree and creme brulee... The views we're lovely and the place was packed, but the food was yummy.
Waitress was very helpful on describing which preparations were gluten free-- then our food came out with a bunch of wheat-based wonton noodles on top! She looked surprised when I pointed out that these contain gluten. Note: I am sensitive, not celiac.
First time in Maui. Went with some friends to celebrate their anniversary. The atmosphere is great very pretty right on the water. Although they don't have a specific GF menu. The waiter was very knowledgeable of the whole menu and gave excellent suggestions for not only GF for me but the rest of the table as well. I was given fresh pineapple instead of bread and a mushroom bisque my group really enjoyed. I ordered the Ono, Mahi Mahi and Ahi Sautéed in Panang Curry and Coconut Milk with Vegetables. My friend just happened to taste a bit of the sauce and noticed a peanut taste. I also have a peanut allergy but since I was so focused on the GF I forgot to ask and it wasn't listed on menu. They immediately took it and remade the dish with a banana curry. And it was delicious. For dessert there was only a couple GF options. I highly recommend the Lilikoi creme brûlée. It was fabulous!!!! All in all a very nice evening and a great meal for a special occasion. Make reservations well in advance and save up as it is pricey but worth it.
The view is amazing as was the service and food. I'm a sensitive celiac and I had no reaction after having a delicious lunch here. I had the vanilla basted prawns which were served with a Jasmin rice medley and fresh vegetables. These prawns were the best I've ever had. It's a pricey place (lunch for 2 with 2 entrees, 2 desserts, and 1 mixed drink) was @ $175 (before tip) worth it! it's simply amazing.
No GF Menu, but our waiter was extremely helpful with items that were naturally GF and which items could be altered. He also double check with the kitchen on any questions or concerns that I had asked. I have always had great meals in the past, so I was super excited to see that I can continue enjoying this restaurant after being diagnosed.
It's one of the most popular restaurants on the island for a reason! Consistently excellent food, even as it becomes more and more of a tourist destination each year. There were more choices for GF than I remembered--most of the fish can be modified, and I had baked Tahitian prawns made with vanilla and a side of Kalua wild boar. Decadent and delicious! I wouldn't go as far as to say they are celiac friendly (no GF menu, no dedicated friers, waiters knowledge is slightly more hesitant than other places) but they definitely have excellent, safe GF options that will keep you happy.
My wife's favorite meal on Maui. Very knowledgeable about GF/Celiac. While the choices were somewhat limited, they were plenty, so long as you realize that you are going to a fish house (the menu isn't that large to start with). Very attentive staff. Keep in mind this is one of the most popular restaurants on Open Table in the entire US, so make your reservations early! I looked a week in advance (in Sept!), and had the option of 3:00PM or 3:44PM for dinner!! Strongly recommend the ceviche. :)
This was an amazing meal. No gf menu, but the waiter was so helpful walking us through the menu for gf options. They just skipped our table together for bread/sample of a bisque (which they gave to all other tables), which bummed me out a bit because I think my husband would have enjoyed some bread and I was looking forward to this fabled fruit! But that aside, the best meal on the island we had! Get there early and take pictures around the stunning grounds!!!
No gf menu. HOWEVER, our waiter and the chefs were all very knowledgeable about gluten. I had so many options to choose from and most items on the menu were completely safe with just a mild modification. The food was beyond amazing and they brought me out something safe to eat when they brought out the bread for my hubby. No issues afterwards, I felt great. I highly recommend!
Mama's is amazing!! There is not a GF menu, but many options on the regular menu that are GF. Staff was very knowledgable and GF aware and conscious. This is a must do for the trip. Pricy but worth it. Great view. Octopus curry was great!! Recommend going for lunch no wait, make reservations for dinner.
