On The Menu at The Plantation House Restaurant
Every night brings a little something different at The Plantation House Restaurant in Kapalua. A themed promotion on each day of the week offers not only variety, but also value. Here’s a look at the specials:
Kama‘āina Mondays – 20% off with Hawai‘i State ID
Tuesday Date Night – 2 entrées, 1 bottle of wine for only $79.95 per couple
“Wine Down” Wednesdays – 50% off sommelier-selected bottles

Aloha Fridays – $9 Ocean Vodka-crafted cocktails 3-9 pm
Mimosa Madness Saturdays – $5 tropical mimosas until 3 p.m.
Sunday Hawaiian Night – Chef’s 5-course Hawaiian-inspired tasting menu for $75
Fridays and Sundays also feature live music from 6 to 8 p.m. Executive Chef Eric Purugganan is especially proud of his Sunday tasting menu, which includes favorites like poke, short rib bao bun, Mahi Mahi, steak and pineapple upside-down cake. With a nod to the Hawaiian Regional Cuisine movement, Chef Purugganan uses locally-sourced products whenever possible.
“Some coming from Kula, Oko‘a Farms with Ryan, I get some things from Kumu Farms, just supporting a lot of local specialty products that Maui really has to offer,” he explains.
The goal is to add monthly Winemaker and Chef Collaboration Dinners to the schedule of events. In fact, there’s a special four-course dinner paired with a Ferrari Carano wines happening on Friday, May 10 at 6 p.m., which you can learn about here.
Sommelier Claudio Giordano II has created an extensive wine program from regions around the globe, which includes a robust by-the-glass program and signature large-format offerings.
“What I have tried to do is find some of the best examples of very classic wine regions and present those at the table,” says Giordano.
He’s also crafted a custom Prohibition-era drink called “The Speakeasy,” his entry into the cocktail contest at the upcoming Kapalua Wine & Food Festival, happening June 6 to 9, 2019. See his creation in our video above.
The Plantation House features an open-air layout with ocean views, located on the Plantation Golf Course in Kapalua. The course itself is undergoing an enhancement project and remains closed to play through Fall 2019.
“They’re planning on getting it done by November and definitely in time for the next Sentry tournament,” Purugganan says.
The restaurant is open daily from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m., offering breakfast, lunch and dinner. For information or reservations, call 808-669-6299 or visit The Plantation House website.
