This is the second time we have been to Roys - we come here every time we come to Maui. Normally you always get the Ahi - because you can never have enough ahi tuna when in Hawaii. But - though the ahi is fabulous and you can't go wrong - instead vear off the beaten path and get the... More

Roy's is by now a Hawaiian staple with many branches in the major islands. No wonder, the food is consistently good, fresh, and well presented. Prices are high (but fair for Hawaii). Service is competent and friendly. If the have Opa as the fresh Hawaiian fish of the day, order it. It is firm, flaky and rich. It is served... More

We have had dinner at Roy's Kaanapali twice now and found it disappointing both times, especially when compared to Roy's in Ko Olina. The Ko Olina location was good every single time we ate dinner there, but the Roy's at Kaanapali is just not a great experience. Our service was good, but the restaurant temperature is too warm to be... More

Two of us went for the meal at Roy's. The seating is a little dark so to read the menu kinda have to look sideways. If you like seafood and/or beef you will have many selections to choose from. Expect to pay at least $50 per person for your meal plus drinks. Hawaii is a not a inexpensive place to... More

Great lunch or dinner venue. Sits right on the golf Course over looking Kaanapali Beach. Food is constantly good, service very attentive. Good happy hour. Go to spot to visit people staying in the Kaanapali Resorts.

We had a less than stellar experience a few years ago. Totally different this go 'round. We received a warm aloha welcome including well wishes for our 40th wedding anniversary. We were most impressed by the total makeover of the restaurant; very classy indeed. All staff interactions were lovely. Wait staff were attentive without hovering. We started with Roy's signature...

Roys has a way with seafood that cannot be described. The Pacific rim treatment is awesome. Just the right spices and the whitefish they serve is great. Scallops are my wife's favorite..

Food was great as always. Head server (Brandon) and his assistant were awesome. However, the hostess brought down the overall rating from excellent to very good. The Caucasian hostess was scantily clad, which is inappropriate for a fine dining establishment, not to mention her young age. We also called ahead to make a special request, and she was very rude...

Roy Yamaguchi started his restaurant empire in Hawaii and is the king of Asian fusion- South Pacific cuisine. A mix of Maui freshest ingredients with a flare of Asia. The food is outstanding. The service is great as well. When the restaurant initially changed locations to Kaanapali from Kahana they kind of skipped a beat and they have done some... More

Welcome to Roy's Kaanapali! Since opening the original "Roy's" in Hawaii Kai in 1988, I have set out to explore "new directions," blending classic European cooking techniques with unique influences of Asia and the Pacific, guided only be the freshest local ingredients and my own sense of freedom. Every night our menu features a selection of "Roy's Classics," which are menu items that have been favorites since the beginning. These are noted with the "Y" symbol. In addition to these Classic dishes, Executive Chef Ryan Ferguson along with Sous Chefs John Balisco, Marc Urquidi, & Jessie Anacleto offer a unique selection of seasonal items & nightly specials. Cooking has been my life... Thank you for making it part of yours. Roy Yamaguchi, Chef/Founder
