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.
This was an all around great luau. The staff were all extremely friendly and service was prompt. I loved that the food was served at the table rather than buffet style like some other luaus. HOWEVER, the food was not exactly what I expected. I personally loved it, but it was very authentic. If some attending is a picky eater they will have a hard time finding food that they enjoy.
The best luau on Maui without a doubt make reservations early so that you can be seated up front.
Cocktails are included great food and service. Music and show was awesome!
The show alone is worth the price! Food and drinks were delicious and plentiful. Not your stereotypical luau, we can't wait to visit again.
A premium luau experience on the beautiful Kaanapali Beach on Maui. It's a departure from other luaus in that the food is served in Polynesian regional courses, table side, by the waitstaff, as opposed to most other luaus that are buffet service. The service is excellent, the food is the best luau food on the island, and the price is a steal, especially if you're enjoying cocktails. The setting is more intimate than other, more large-scale commercial productions, and the show is beautiful (includes Samoan fire dance.) This particular dinner and show is less kid-friendly than others, but is perfect for a party of adults or a family with teens & up. You'll leave full and happy; arrive early and prepared to pay for parking.
Having lived in Hawai'i I have been to my fair share of luau's when family and friends come to visit. The Feast at Lele is hands down the best luau on Maui. It starts off with an intimate setting and table service. The staff is committed to delivering a bespoke experience while you attend. The food is carefully selected to showcase the different regions of Polynesia and it is meticulously prepared as if you were ordering from a menu. The entertainers did not disappoint. The three member band entertained everyone before, during, and after the show. The men and women that encompassed the visual show were second to none. I do not think you can have an experience like The Feast at Lele in any other setting. Best night on Maui so far and my friends I brought were very impressed by the evening entertainment selection.
