We were seated immediately. I ordered the Cuban, which was very tasty. My husband had the fish tacos. He enjoyed them. Service was very good. Sunset was spectacular.

From 5 - 5:30 you can can enjoy a three course meal for $26! A real Maui deal especially with great ocean views. Be sure to enjoy a glass of wine, beer, or a mixed drink with your meal. Great service and a beautiful sunset is almost guaranteed nightly.

We were very pleased with our dinner at Leilani's considering how touristy the Maui Lahaina beach area is. We were seated upstairs inside with a beautiful ocean view. The oho was excellent with very good veggies and nice rolls.
