The Feast at Lele

Upon the golden sands of Lahaina, the ancient capital of the Hawaiian Kingdom, Hawaiian royalty once dined and entertained. You too can dine as royalty at the Feast at Lele Luau, Maui’s only five course, full service dinner. Prepare for a culinary adventure like no other in the islands, as your senses are transported throughout Polynesia.

Just before sunset, check in with the Feast at Lele hostess along the shoreline at the Shops at 505 Front Street. A warm aloha greeting, fresh flower lei and mai tai welcome you to your candlelit, seaside table for you and your guests. As the sun sets and your server greets you with options from the full premium bar, enjoy traditional appetizers of banana and sweet potato chips served with a tropical ginger and seaweed salsa.

The Feast at Lele beings with the first course from our own island home of Hawaii. Sample the Imu (underground oven) roasted Kalua pork served over steamed cabbage, pohole fern and heart of palm salad and local fresh catch with mango fruit salsa. As you delight in the flavors of Hawaii, feast your eyes and ears on dancers as they chant, sing, and hula in honor of the land and culture of Hawaii.

The evening’s pace begins to take shape as you are served the second course from New Zealand. This course features duck tenderloin salad, steak cooked with kiwi fruit in a soy ginger sauce, and roasted mushrooms with sweet potato and onion. Don’t let the menu intimidate you! Feel free to dabble in the epicurean delights, and if there is something you absolutely love, the server can certainly bring more. New Zealand’s dancers are famous for the Haka War Dance, and their face paint will take care of the intimidation.

Tahiti captivates with the third course, steamed chicken wrapped in taro leaf with coconut milk, lemongrass and ginger. The islands also feature their style of ceviche, baked scallops with sweet potato, and spinach in a lobster cream. The Tahitian dance does not disappoint as they are known for flashy headdresses, upbeat drums and lusty hip moves.

The final savory course comes from the island of Samoa. Sample grilled squid, breadfruit and squash in a coconut cream sauce and shrimp, avocado and fresh fruit tossed in a passionfruit dressing. The dance of Samoa is a favorite for visitors and locals alike. Sit back and marvel at the amazing fire-knife dance finale.

The final dessert course of exotic tropical fruits, Hawaiian chocolate truffles, and macadamia nut tart with coconut custard completes your evening of authentic Hawaiian hospitality and decadence. Join us at the Feast at Lele, and dine as Hawaiian royalty once did–in a sensory adventure through the islands.

    This was a great luau. The location was perfect, the food was amazing and kept coming, and what’s not to like about an open bar? The staff was courteous, and the performers were all great. We will certainly be back!

    The entertainment, service and food were amazing. The staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating regarding our food allergy. It was not overcrowded and the seating was very organized. The food was beautifully presented and the staff took the time to explain each dish. They were also very prompt with drink service. Amazing experience which I highly recommend!

    The feast has gone down in quality since our last visit 2 years ago. The changed the stage location from the ocean backdrop to the back of a restaurant.

    This luau was very different from previous attended luaus. For the price paid I thought the food was not that great and the show portion of the evening was lacking. The staff was very friendly and helpful which is worth mentioning. I would prefer a more traditional luau personally.I would not recommend this luau for the price.

    WONDERFUL experience. We were told to expect very poor food at the luau’s, but this was a completely different experience. Great food – one of our best meals across 15 days on 3 islands. We would give 10/10 and recommend to any of our friends and family visiting Hawaii.

    Show/dancers were lovely and the musicians were fantastic.Servers were very friendly & knowledgable and worked very hard and always asked about filling your drink order. But vthe main downfall was the food. It was presented beautifully but most tasted AWFUL…the only thing palatable was the short rib & the shredded pork. We were not alone in this opinion as we noticed most tables surrounding us had the same complaint.

    We had a great time but thought that the food ( Although it was VERY good ) would have been more traditional. There was no pork or Poi and in that we were a bit disappointed. The entertainment was also very colorful and good.

    Pros: intimate, separate seating, Great food, great drinks, great show, professional and friendly staff, fabulous location right on the beach.l in Lahaina. Cons: expensive (most expensive luau on Maui), over priced professional photos, tip expected on top of an already very expensive luau.

    :

    Food and drinks were amazing! The show was also entertaining – I really liked how the country’s food and the dances coincided. It was very romantic, on the beach, and my boyfriend and I enjoyed having our food and drinks served directly to our table, rather than a buffet. This was my first luau and it was definitely a treat!

    Staff was friendly and provided great service. Alexis serviced our drink and I think it was Robert who was our server. Both made us feel welcome and they went above and beyond your typical server, not only did they provide great service but gave a lot of information about the island and the culture. Our favorite part of the night was the fire twirler, who was amazing. Alexis knew how amazed we were and went out of her way to have Seon (fire twirler) come stop by our table for a quick meet and greet. Overall our group had an amazing time, and would recommend to anyone going to Maui

    I had never been to a luau, and I am very pleased with the experience. We were seated in front of the 3 piece band, which had me nervous at first as I was worried it would be too loud. It was not and pleasant the entire night. The food was excellent and spread evenly throughout the night. I was full at the end, but not overly stuffed. The drinks were absolutely delicious and we’re constantly coming. Since we were in front of where the servers were walking, they would just hand us drinks that we thought looked good as they walked by. I would recommend this to anyone who wanted a more intimate experience as you get a private table. Parking was about
