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.
Plan to go on a very empty stomach.
We were told this is one of the best luaus in Maui and were not disappointed.
The food was excellent, the quantities were huge (we weren't able to finish anything). They served 4 courses, each with 3 dishes and followed up with dessert. I loved the music. The dance performances were entertaining, ending with a beautiful fire dance.
What an experience! I usually go to a luau's with family but I went to this for my honeymoon to change it up and boy worth every penny. The food is so delicious and the staff is warming. The dances are incredible and the location, just breathtaking. The parking is a bit of a mess but other than that, just uber or taxi. So much easier.
Amazing food with vegetarian and vegan specialization care as well as allergies. Oceanside sunset dinning. Stunning entertainment. Waiting was phenomenal and well informed and caring of the patrons.
The view. All that's needed.
Very well done Luau. Dancing and group acts were professional.
NOT overwhelming crowds like the big hotels have.
Food was delicious.
The numerous Courses ranged from the expected o the unexpected.
I got to try a couple foods I had never seen not heard of.
Food was all good to Fabulous.
Seating right at the Beach at Sunset really gave it beauty, plus a real Hawaii feel. !
After attending this, I realize I prefer traditional buffet style luaus in comparison. They initially funnel everyone into a small waiting area where you wait upwards to an hour to be seated even though they already have the tables picked for each party. I got carded 3 separate times after already drinking, which was irritating. The only food I really enjoyed out of all 4 courses including desert was the Kalua pork, and the sweet potato chips with salsa. I feel like a lot of food is wasted at this particular luau/feast as they don't allow you to take anything home. You only get a certain amount of time with each dish that is brought out before they take it, and throw it away. Afterwards, even though it's prepaid, they give you a gratuity check. Meaning they "suggest" how much to be tipped. Our would be tip was close to $60 for a low, and over $100 for a "better"tip. If you have the money then I highly recommend going to any other luau type dinner really.
