The Feast at Lele: "Luau - at its finest!" Hawaii (State of) Restaurant Tip by iluvtrvl

Hawaii (State of) Restaurants: 167 reviews and 115 photos

If you can only afford to do one luau while in Hawaii, make it The Feast at Lele, in Lahaina on Maui. While the price at $100 a head may make you sway, the other luau's charging you less will give you what you pay for....long lines in a buffet full of food that tastes like it came off a buffet. For the difference of $25 per person, it is well worth it. Executive Chef James McDonald from PacificıO Restaurant, and IıO Restaurant brings the flavor of Hawaii beachfront in a very intimate yet comfortable setting.

The show is a sampling of Polynesian culture - Hawaiian, Somoan, get the picture. However, the performers are close enough to hear their individual chants and to see the emotion in their faces as they perform.

And the food - and service...well, as you are seated at your linen draped table, you are greeted by not one, but two servers who are yours for the evening. They will bring your courses to you, and each dish is prepared with the chef's touch and hand. The food is beyond delicious and filling, and the beverages (alcoholic and non) are inclusive of your meal. When it's all over and done with, you will wear your fresh flower lei home, adorned as you entered for the evening, feeling very entwined with the Polynesians.
