    You should probably try Monkeypod Kitchen for some local food done with a certain amount of flair. Recommend you make a reservation though.

    Gannon's is another "should try". Good view. Try the ahi poke.

    For a view of "real" Maui, drive up the Kula Hwy. You can stop at the Kula Lodge or the botanical garden.

    Have fun!

    Star Noodle in Lahaina has wonderful food - worth the trip
    Bev Gannon's Hali’imaile General Store is also excellent food
    Aquarium is worth a tour

    No we are headed to kaanapali to stay in the Westin time share...then to the Fairmont for two free nights from my fairmont card. We haven't been in Wailea so I was looking for ideas.

    We tried Gannon's and Monkeypod Kitchen. Both were a big hit! Thanks for the suggestions.

    The service was great! We ate dinners off property, but the breakfast buffet was great...lots of choices that were very tasty (think macadamia nut sticky buns). The drinks were especially good at the swim-up-bar :)
