In 2013, the Makena Beach & Golf Resort looks to revitalize and supercharge it's food & beverage program by introducing new and improved menu offerings and various food & wine events & programs throughout the year. Spearheaded by the creativity of the resort's New Food & Beverage Director Leo Mallari and supported by the culinary talents of Executive Chef Marc McDowell, we invite you to come try our new dining options at Makena!
The Makena Beach & Golf Resort's culinary team, under the direction of Executive Chef Marc McDowell, 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 McDowell 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.
