I loved how the setting was casual and relaxed but the food rivals a five star restaurant. I cannot stop raving about the Kobe beef poke, tempura lobster, oishi sushi, and the steamed opah. Opah is a fish not often available on Maui and to have it was truly a delicacy. But most of all, the service was outstanding!

Rather than going out, the wife and I decided to have dinner on the resort and chose Kō Restaurant. We started with a small starter, the Kobe Beef Poke. This was quite delicious, the meat was cooked and seasoned to perfection. For entree, we both ordered vegetable fried rice with chicken. The chicken was a little dry, but our server... More

Eaten at Ko 3 times in one week and although expensive, it is worth it. The menu has a polynesian flare with a variety of appetizers and entrees that are not the usual mahi mahi. Even the drinks are a bit different. (2 choices of mai thais)Lovely decor and good service.

Convenient that the two best restauranats on the island are at the same hotel. Ko's is always a delight: the food is interesting and perfectly prepared and the staff are both friendly and knowledgeable. We go back as often as we can.

Nick (the bartender) not only knew what I wanted to drink, based upon the very little information I provided him about what I like (that is the sign of talent in bar tending), but... More

Located inside the Fairmont Kea Lani - be sure to make your reservation early. Great menu with pacific/Polynesian choices as well as standard mainland dishes. Very nice restaurant with great service.
