Basil Tomatoes (not Tomatos or Tomato’s or Tomatoe’s) CLOSED in February of 2014. It was an Italian restaurant that stood since 1995 on the grounds of the Royal Lahaina Hotel, adjacent to the 5th tee of the Royal Kaanapali (formerly called the North Kaanapali) Golf Course, in Kaanapali. Phone 808-662-3210.
The building was originally the clubhouse for the first Kaanapali golf course, so the restaurant had beautiful views of the golf course, with the ocean in the distance. The menu was long, with delicious versions of all of the expected Italian choices and more. Dinner only. Service could be slow.
Reviews of other recommended restaurants in all price ranges on this side of Maui are at West Maui (Lahaina Kaanapali Napili Kapalua) restaurants.
