Cane and Taro Restaurant, Kaanapali Beach
Cane & Taro changed its name to Maui Fish & Pasta in 2012. It originally opened in 2009 at the location of the previous Rusty Harpoon restaurant, in the middle of Whalers Village, the shopping center on Kaanapali Beach. It’s at 2435 Kaanapali Parkway. Phone 808-662-0668.
Cane & Taro (now called Fish & Pasta) is owned by the same people as Sansei, a popular Japanese restaurant in Kapalua and Kihei. It has a few of the same menu items, plus much more. The restaurant is covered but open-air, and most tables have an ocean view. This is one of my several favorite Maui restaurants, and my favorite dinner entrees here are today’s fresh fish (usually 5 choices) and my favorite appetizer is chicken wings with Kochujang sauce. For especially good service tell the manager Lawrence that Jon and Rosie sent you.
Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. See below for some Cane and Taro menu items and photos.
