“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.”
Many of Maui’s restaurants cater to wedding receptions and will work with you to develop a special menu for your guests. The recommended restaurants vary in ambiance and price, so you can choose the one best suited to your budget. Some also offer a buyout option for larger wedding receptions.
RESTAURANTS – South Side
Gannon’s A Pacific View Restaurant
Spectacular ocean and sunset views of the Wailea coastline, paired with innovative coastal cuisine created by Chef Bev Gannon, who is well known for her culinary delights. Accommodates wedding parties large or small, with semi-private dining areas.
This is a great little restaurant in the heart of Kihei and right next to the beach. It’s perfect for parties of 20-80 for a private or semi-private rehearsal or reception dinner. You can currently bring your own alcohol, which will save you buckets on your bill, and the buy-out price is very low compared to other restaurants. There is an open-air courtyard where you and your guests can mingle and enjoy appetizers and drinks, and a covered area for a cozy sit-down dinner. And did I forget to mention, the food is fantastic, too! Available for private bookings.
