Executive Chef Marc McDowell and Food & Beverage Director Leo Mallari

For 2014, Makena Beach & Golf Resort revitalized and supercharged it's food & beverage program by introducing new and improved menu offerings and unique food & wine events throughout the year. Spearheaded by the creativity of the resort's Food & Beverage Director Leo Mallari and supported by the culinary talents of Executive Chef Marc McDowell, we invite you to come try our innovative dining options at Makena!

The Makena Beach & Golf Resort's culinary team, under the direction of Executive Chef Marc, is driven by the desire to infuse traditional culinary arts into the dining experience at all four of the Makena Beach & Golf Resort’s fine Maui restaurants. Their mantra is “fresh, fresh, fresh” and they have a make-everything-from-scratch attitude. A certified Master Gardener, Chef Marc brings “make everything from scratch” goodness to the resort by building herb and vegetable gardens throughout the property.  Every meal is a momentary expression of Makena’s high standards of flavor, quality and consistency.
