The above really says it all. The sunset view is perfect as it is right next to the sand. Adjoining hotel is beautiful with native gardens inside. A salad (which is little) is $16. That is also the cost of a mai tai- great drink! Had coconut encrusted mahi-mahi maui. In my opinion, it was overlooked and pretty tasteless for... More

The Canoe House is located along the ocean. It was dark so we could not see the view but could hear the waves. You can sit outside or inside the restaurant which is open. (no front walls) It took awhile before the waitress could take our order but she was worth the wait. She was welcoming, friendly and spoiled us.... More

Was here in 10-2015 and remember an excellent meal. Made reservations for husband's birthday dinner. Was at bar approximately 15 mins before table ready and no service, never offered drink. Table was nice, service was okay, didn't refill water until we finally ask when dinner was over. Coffee ribeye was as good as 1st visit which was excellent! Mahi-mahi was... More

Nice restaurant near the beach with lights towards the sea so you can actually see the waves during dinner. High end restaurant with good service and nice menu with prices being set accordingly. We recommend.

Service with out charm or a smile, but a big price. Shame the waiters can't realise that ppl who dine here flew thousands of miles and are creating a family memory. They are in fact part of the memory how about a little bit of aloha spirit for us My appetiser was awful. I called for the manager and sent... More

Our party of 8 was very happy with the food and service at CanoeHouse. We were seated outside- a singer serenaded all evening. Make a reservation and be prepared for a big bill, but that's not unusual in this part of Hawaii.

Our party of six enjoyed a lovely dinner sitting outside at the Canoe House under a perfect evening sky. With the waves crashing close by, we dined on delicious food and drink. Service was excellent. Menu choices covered a full spectrum on choices. This should be a go to place if you are in this part of the Big Island.... More

This restaurant is right on the beach and has great views. The service was really good and the food was yummy. They had some unique food options and a good wine list as well.
