The Feast at Lele Luau in Lahaina

The Feast at Lele, an elegant pageant of Polynesia, is nestled in an intimate beachfront patio in South Lahaina. Executive Chef James McDonald combines fine dining with exciting Polynesian entertainment at The Feast at Lele. Set in an intimate garden setting, private tables are terraced around a raised beachfront platform. As the sun sinks, silhouetting Lana‘i island across the Auau channel, an outrigger canoe paddled by Hawaiian warriors is welcomed ashore with the blowing of the conch. A seamless presentation ensues as the dancers take diners on a tour of Hawai’i, Aotearoa (New Zealand), Tahiti and Samoa. As Polynesia is explored, corresponding cuisine is brought to the table. While the New Zealand Maori frighten their foes with their famous tattooed faces and haka (war dance); an Upcountry Green Duck Salad is served with Fishcakes and Sauteed Sweet Potato and Mushrooms. And when the sweet romance of Tahiti is presented with the exciting hip movements and regal feathered headdresses, there is Fafa-Steamed Chicken and Taro Leaf in Coconut Milk along with Baked Scallops and Poisson Cru. The five-course Polynesian feast orchestrated by Chef James will satiate any appetite and please the gourmet palette immensely.

“Island grown fruits and vegetables, many from our own organic farm, are incorporated into traditional Polynesian fare,” Chef James said. “Complete with tableside service, this is a ‘foodie’s’ luau.” A burst of fire signals the grand finale, a stunning exhibition of Samoan fire knife dancing.
