Gerard’s is a longstanding French restaurant in Lahaina. It’s at 174 Lahainalua Road, a block and a half off of Front Street. Phone 808-661-8939.
Gerard Reversade, the chef and owner, is from France, but has lived on Maui for over 30 years, and that combination shows in all of his wonderful food creations. The restaurant has won many awards, including Mobil Travel Guide 4 stars, “one of Maui’s best” from Zagat, and “best chef on Maui” from Maui News readers poll. The restaurant is small, with several inside tables in an elegant room, plus more outside tables on the beautiful front porch. Very expensive. The Plantation Inn B&B is in the same building. See below for some specific Gerard’s menu items and photos.
