Acclaimed Maui chef Alex Stanislaw has been named Executive Chef at the award-winning beachfront Sea House Restaurant on Napili Bay. Stanislaw’s culinary career spans more than 30 years at some of Maui’s top restaurants. After graduating with honors from the Culinary Institute of America in New York, Stanislaw began his career at Kapalua Bay Hotel, followed by seven years at Erik’s Seafood Grotto in Kahana, then 21 years as Executive Chef at The Plantation House Restaurant in Kapalua.

Over the years, Stanislaw has received numerous accolades and recognition, including “Best Chef on Maui,” has been featured in multiple cookbooks including “Great Chefs of Hawaii,” and has appeared on culinary and travel programs such as the Rachael Ray Show and Discovery Channel’s Great Chefs Series.

“Being at the Sea House, I feel like I’ve come full circle,” says Stanislaw, since he started his culinary career at adjacent Kapalua Bay. “It feels good to be back on the bay again, and I can’t imagine a more beautiful setting for the creation and enjoyment of great food.”

The Sea House Restaurant, located at Napili Kai Beach Resort, is one of the few truly “beach front” restaurants on the island of Maui. The Sea House has received numerous awards; this year it was recognized as one of the top five statewide “Best Hotel/Resort Restaurants” and “Best for Breakfast” in Hawaii Magazine’s Third Annual Reader’s Choice Awards. It’s a 2015 recipient of the OpenTable Diners’ Choice Award, and has received recent accolades for its sunset “pau hana” happy hour, creative tapas-style pupu (appetizers), and traditional island-style ambiance. The restaurant, rated “Excellent” by Zagat, is open daily for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and cocktails.
