Vino was the restaurant in the golf clubhouse of the Village Course in Kapalua. It CLOSED in 2007. There are beautiful views of the golf course, with the ocean in the distance.
The restaurant that replaced Vino at this location was Kapalua Cafe, which was subsequently replaced by Village Cafe and Sweet Shop, which also closed.
Vino menu at lunch was standard salads and sandwiches. But at dinner they served tapas-style with an Italian accent. Tapas means small plates so you can try several different tasty items in smaller and less expensive servings, rather than one larger entree. (See below for some specific Vino menu items as well as photos.)
Vino was a beautiful place for tapas.
