Maui Summer 2013
Hello. I'm an Australian now in Maui; used this fantastic site to great effect for SFO recommendations last trip. Can't see anything up to date for Maui. Staying Kaanapali 9 days, but prepared to travel a little if worth it. Happy to pay for anything worthwhile; any cuisine, but preferably good wine list that stretches beyond a token sav blanc and Napa Chardonnay (nothing wrong with that in principle, but seeking some diversity). Any suggestions gratefuly accepted ...

Plantation House at Kapalua Golf Course for the best breakfast..Ahi benedict with wasabi hollandaise..no wait, great views and reasonable.
Costco and Foodland for poke are your friends.
The Maui dining scene doesn't move as fast as other places like big cities. Here are some threads from the last 12 months:
I recommend the O'o Farm tour and lunch. You would have to bring your own wine, but the food was excellent, the arbor with the tables you eat at look like something out of a fairytale (the picture on the website is pretty accurate), and if you are at all interested in growing your own produce, it's a very interesting tour. Eating just picked produce and drinking freshly roasted coffee makes a huge difference flavor-wise. Monday through Thursday only, starting at 10:30 am, reservations essential.
