Signature Seafood Fare
Diners will be pleased to find the diversity of Pacific and other seafood that Nick’s Fishmarket hosts on our menu. Menu features mouthwatering selections of fresh oysters on the half shell served with lilikoi mignonette along with specialty fish not found at many other restaurants, prepared with both Mediterranean and Hawaiian flavors. Chef Maka regularly heads out before sunrise to purchase the fresh catch from local fishermen who he’s spent years working with. These special relationships that he’s developed ensure that he gets the highest quality seafood AND that specialties like opakapaka (Hawaiian pink snapper) appear regularly on the menu.
Fresh, Local, Sustainable
Nick’s Fishmarket sources as much produce as possible from Hawaii purveyors. From the vibrant Moloka‘i sweet potatoes that balance the gaminess of the Rack of Lamb to the Hamakua mushrooms that layer earthy flavors into the risotto that sits underneath the Pan Seared Ahi, the menu highlights some of the Island’s most beautiful products and supports a variety of local producers. When he’s not in the kitchen, you’ll find Chef Maka spending his time carefully finding the freshest and finest ingredients from Maui’s fishermen and farmers.
Open Air Dining With a View
The open-air dining situated inside the luxurious Fairmont Kea Lani is the perfect place to watch the sun set. Views of the Pacific and (Kaho’olawe?) stretch out just past the hotel grounds, with swaying palms and tiki torches ringing the dining area. Unlike most restaurants with beautiful views, the scenery doesn’t disappear after the sun disappears. Starting with a nightly torch lighting ceremony, outdoor lights illuminate overhead, and the Fairmont’s elegant pool becomes a stunning focal point.
