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.
We have included the menu prepared by the Executive Chef of Pacific’o Restaurant.

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.
These folks have set the bar for service... Absolutely amazing. From the moment you step inside the entrance to the moment you leave, there are a host of talented staff there to serve you. We had a host seat us and describe how the night would unfold, then throughout the evening, there were water boys, a drink waiter, and food waitress, all with perfect timing and attentiveness.
You sit at your own private table on the beach, with the sunset to one side and entertainment on the other... Quite the fine tuned setup.
The food is expertly cooked and served family style to your table. This is fine dining quality, not a buffet. Each course arrives with three sample platters and is accompanied with stories, music, and dance from each cultural region. If you were to eat everything, you'd never make it past course 3 of 5.
The drinks are all custom made to order and all top shelf. All fresh fruits and juices.
The entertainment was thoroughly enjoyable and authentically delivered by dedicated talent.
This was the perfect first luau for our family.
Great for meat eaters. A valiant effort for vegetarians but room for improvement. Friendly, attentive staff. Great performances. Smaller, intimate setting for luau and they bring your food to you which is very nice however food is not hot when it arrives but excellent flavors.
I’ve never left a negative restaurant review, but I feel strongly that no one else should be taken in by the high ratings and articles describing this experience as “gourmet.”
This was the antithesis of gourmet. The food was horrible. At times it was inedible. The performance was fine, but not the caliber that had been advertised. The experience was like eating airplane food while watching a high school dance performance — and then being charged $300.
I saw many complaints here about tipping. I don’t mind tipping the waiters — who did an excellent job — it was, however, a bit painful to fork over more money for such a horrible experience.
If you like lukewarm, fishy fish, rubbery chicken or leather-like short-rib, then you’ll like this place just fine. Otherwise, don’t waste your money.
An amazing show put together with a wonderful dining experience! Service is top-notch and the view is spectacular! We were set at a table close to the center of the stage and yet had an amazing sunset view ! The food was well prepared and the open bar gave a lot of options! Definitely would be visiting again whenever I'm in the island!
Despite what you see in some reviews this was a great experience. The food was excellent. The price is comparable to any dinner show and yes you need to tip your server. If you can't afford an additional $20 per person on top of the price of the show stay home or go elsewhere. These servers worked hard and were running the whole night because it's an open bar. It was our first time here and when we come back we will return.
