This was hands down the best restaurant experience I have ever had, not just in Hawaii but throughout the major metro cities in the US mainland and internationally. The intimate dining room and professional service staff were simply outstanding. The food was beautifully presented, and gave us a sense of place, as the local provenance was highlighted by items such as Kona Kampachi and Molokai Venison. They also source global ingredients that offer the ultimate in luxury and quality like the Toriyama Wagyu from Gunma Japan. Chef Colin came out to check on the diners and we were so pleased to have a few minutes to speak with him. Just a wonderful experience from start to finish!

What a special dinner and experience! The ambience, hospitality, the fun belly dancing, and the delicious food made our evening a wonderful Moroccan experience , that we never expected! We were even encouraged to put on some Moroccan robes and hats, which all the other guests put on as well. It made for a shared experience, totally unique! If you find yourself looking for something special in Maui, and not looking for another fish restaurant, Le Bazaar will not disappoint!
