Io Restaurant Lahaina


Io Maui CLOSED in December of 2013.  It was the less-well-known sister restaurant of Pacific'O restaurant (same owners), both started by James McDonald.  Both were side-by-side on the ocean in the 505 Front Street shopping center in Lahaina.  I'o had the more modern decor, with indoor as well as outdoor seating.  Dinner only.  Phone 808-661-8422.

Io was one of the premier Maui restaurants for Pacific Rim cuisine.  This type of food blends ideas from California with food preparations from Japan and other Asian countries.  My wife and my favorite fish preparation here was the "Crabby Catch."  Our favorite dessert was the marvelous "Chocolate Pate."  See below for some specific I'o restaurant Maui menu items as well as photos.

The view and the food at I'o were both delicious.  I recommended it highly and was disappointed when it closed.
