Bars and nightlife in Wailea-Makena

Top bars

New American Restaurant
“Monkeypod is a lively restaurant with terrific food, a large selection of craft beers, a renowned mai tai, and great service. The place is usually packed at dinner time, is loud, and is a better spot for a happy gathering of family or friends than a romantic dinner. The menu is varied and contains “modern twists” on traditional dishes. Food is primarily locally-sourced. It seems that any time I talk to someone who has also vacationed in the Kihei/Wailea area, they ask me if we ate at Monkeypod. It seems to be the “it” restaurant in the area. Even though it can be really crowded at dinner we have enjoyed our time there. We often go for an early or late lunch and avoid the crowd. ”

Mediterranean Restaurant
“Sarento’s is a great beachfront open-air restaurant just across the lawn from the Mana Kai. From 8 am to 2 pm they offer what they call their brunch menu with about half of the items being traditional breakfast items and the rest more in line with a mid-day meal. Starting at 5 pm, the tablecloths come out, the menu becomes more sophisticated, and the prices go up as it transforms into a fine dining experience. It is a great place to watch the sunset and a romantic evening. Also great for groups of six to twelve or so people who are looking for a quiet setting. ”
