Dukes Kaanapali

Dukes Kaanapali is located right on the beach and offers great food and spectacular sunset dining.

In all of my trips to Maui, I had never been to one of the best places to eat in Maui, Dukes Kaanapali Beach House, despite it being just a five minute walk from the Maui Ocean Resort Villas that I stay at each time.  During our September visit, my wife and I were impressed with the open-air atmosphere and great selection of locally grown, raised and caught menu selections.  Every table has a great view of the Pacific ocean and the restaurant is perfectly lit by well placed tiki torches.

Our Dukes Kaanapali Entrees

We started with the ceviche, consisting of a nice combination of lime juice, meyer lemon, maui onion, jalapeƱo and avocado.

The Duke's ceviche is a nice sized appetizer for two that combines locally grown limes, onions, jalapenos, avocados and lemons with a tender and sweet fishCeviche

My wife ordered the macadamia nut, parmesan and panko crusted swordfish with locally grown haiku tomato and lemon caper butter.
