In ancient Hawaii, a Luau in Maui was a gathering for entertaining the kings of the Hawaiian Kingdom. Lele in the Hawaiian language means Lahaina. Come join us for a Maui luau that will make you feel like royalty. Set in Lahaina, beachside at 505 Front Street, the Feast at Lele is the smallest and most intimate luau on Maui. With reserve seating at a table for just your party, tableside service and a menu prepared by Executive Chef James McDonald, it’s no surprise that the reviews for Maui Luaus place the Feast at Lele as the best luau in Maui. The Feast at Lele show consists of hula dances and fire knife performances from the islands that make up Polynesia. From the colorful costumes of Tahiti to the Samoan fire-knife dance, the Feast at Lele will immerse you in the culture of Polynesia.
To present a more intimate luau, the grounds were completely redesigned. At one time the stage was against the building with the ocean behind the tables. To achieve a more romantic status the stage was moved out to the ocean side presenting a beautiful backdrop throughout the evening. The concept behind the Feast at Lele is to keep the attendance small with tables that only cater to the number of guests in each reservation. This allows for a more private affair attesting to the mystic of the Feast at Lele. The seating area is terraced. There are 3 terraces built into the luau grounds that afford optimal views of the stage and of course those special Lahaina sunsets.
Unlike other Maui luaus, the Feast at Lele does not have a buffet. The dinner is prepared onsite and served at your table by Pacific’o Restaurant. Pacific’o Restaurant is located at the entrance of the Feast at Lele. The Executive Chef and owner of Pacific’o Restaurant is James McDonald. The meal is a 5-course feast. As each island that represents Polynesian culture begins to perform; stable food from that Island group is served. Dessert is the last course. The bar is the best bar for any luau with all drinks included from imported beer to any kind of tropical blend that you may desire to try. James McDonald has earned more awards for Pacific Fusion cuisine than any other chef on Maui. Chef McDonald owns a farm on Maui where all the ingredients are grown. Everything used in his recipes is fresh and locally grown. This is one of the things that make this luau so special. You know you are at an upscale luau when you experience the table side service and presentations of your dinner.
The menu at the Feast at Lele is as diverse as the dances that entertain you. With 4 island groups represented on the menu, this is a delicious feast that will introduce you to the cuisine of Hawaii.

Tip of the Day:
Due to the small size and popularity of this luau we suggest securing your seats well in advance of your arrival to Maui. Many people wait until the last moment to reserve their seats and find out the luau is sold out during their entire vacation.
Especially popular among honeymooners, the Feast at Lele is the perfect choice for special occasions or a romantic evening with your special other.
At first I was a little bummed out by the admission ticket price. After going through the experience, it is worth every little penny. The show was amazing and entertaining. The food selection was also great. Do not get deterred by the cost.
This was a fantastic experience for us for our honeymoon in Hawaii. First, location is wonderful. Beautiful sunset and beach background. Music was great and felt authentic. Servers were great. We didn't realize that the drinks came with our payment so that was a great touch.
Performances were also great, and the dancers appeared to genuinely enjoy what they were doing. The fire dance at the end was awesome.
As for the food, it wasn't all my taste, but it was a great service. They were able to accommodate my veg diet. My only real "complaint" is that there was so much food! I never thought I would say that. Make sure you go easy on the first few courses to make it through all of them.
Lastly we never felt pressured to tip which is something we were concerned about based on other reviews. We did tip, but just something to note. It was a fantastic experience and night. Highly recommend.
Food was good, so was dancing, although not quite as an 'authentic' experience as I was hoping for.. you know, meal cooked in the ground in a coconut grove, etc. I suppose it's not called a Luau for this reason - more of a Vegas style dinner and show.
Sunset from the beach is phenomenal.
Waiter kept forgetting drinks we ordered.
Best food of all the luau we attended and a beautiful storyline for the show. Costumes great, flow of the evening good. Some of the performers were kind of phoning it in though.
They somehow figured out how to make midwestern tasting food look like Pacific islander's cuisine. I couldn't tell the difference between the white bread and steak except for the texture. If you are looking for $130 worth of tasteless cuisine then this is your place! The dancing was entertaining and the drinks were unlimited.
