Pupu at Wailea Kitchen and Tap

The Wailea Tennis Club has a restaurant again! This is the former location of Joe’s (part of the Bev Gannon restaurant family), then Joe’s Nuevo (or something like that). After sitting empty for months, it has reopened as the Wailea Kitchen and Tap. Rumor has it, the owners of the golf course just decided to open his own restaurant. Not sure if that’s accurate information.

Regardless, the Wailea Kitchen and Tap has just had their soft opening – yes, they are still playing with the menu. For the most up to date information, check their Facebook page. We decided to give it a try after tennis lessons.

Wailea KitchenThe service was good, the food was great, the prices very reasonable especially for Wailea. We didn’t sample from the bar, so I can’t comment on that. There are several TV monitors for the sports enthusiasts and a long bar at which to enjoy the game. There’s a great view of the tennis courts.

Where exactly is this? The Wailea Tennis Club are tucked in above the Shops at Wailea, just below the new Marriott Residences, Matteo’s and next to the Grand Champions. As you drive up the driveway, there is a parking lot on the right. You then follow the small signs through some landscaping to the tennis courts. You can’t miss it there. It is a short walk from the parking lot to the tennis courts.

Yes, we’ll be back!
