Restaurant at Hotel Wailea: Taste Chef Zach Sato's Creative Culinary Excellence

Located in the first and only Relais & Châteaux property in the state of Hawaii, The Restaurant at Hotel Wailea delivers seasonal, island-grown dishes prepared by Executive Chef Zach Sato. A Maui native with a passion for Hawaiian culture, Chef Sato focuses on ingredients handpicked from the hotels’ own farming practices. This practice ensures that every dish has the freshest possible ingredients and heightened flavor.

Words by Markin Abras

For starters, choose the Hamachi Tataki served with heart of palm, avocado, and Finadene sauce. It is a light yet flavorful appetizer. The truffle risotto is also another delightful choice made with Ali’i mushrooms, truffle butter, and Parmesan Reggiano.

Choose the Kona Lobster with knuckle fried rice, Lob Cheong, and tempura asparagus as your main dish. The Colorado lamb shank is a special treat accompanied with cannellini beans, broccolini, dates, mac-nut gremolata.

For something sweet, choose the Hawaiian molten lava chocolate, flambéed with rum and served with light and fluffy honey marshmallows. The mango coconut with whipped lilikoi ganache and valrhona passion inspiration is another sublime choice.
