Fresh off of our whale watching tour, we headed over to Honu Restaurant in Maui – a spot recommended by our tour guides on the boat.

“If you only order one thing while you’re there, make sure it’s the Ahi Tuna Bruschetta”, he said, and everyone who had dined there before quickly nodded their heads in agreement.

So…we got the bruschetta, along with a few other yummy treats like cheesy brussel sprouts and possibly the best shrimp sandwich that I’ve ever had in my entire life – seriously good with fresh herbs and a flavor that is best described as melt in your mouth delicious!

We also had incredibly good oyster shots that came with caviar; and boo ordered a Moscow Mule, topped with a giant piece of candied ginger – immediately turning him into a newfound fan of the specialty drink.

The food was a notch above incredible, but so was the atmosphere.

Our server was super friendly and full of personality. She was efficient and even though she wouldn’t let JC sneak home the copper mug that he desperately wanted to put in his pocket as a souvenir, I have to say she deserves 5 stars for every other aspect of the meal.

Our table was right on the water and so we had an amazing view of the island. It wasn’t long before I realized the giant sea turtles swimming around, just a few yards from where we were seated!
