Thanks for your post. Is the Maui Fish House possibly Mama's Fish House? We're meeting friends at Mama's (I don't know anything about it) on Monday.

We'll be on our own from Sat-Tue then Tue-Sat 250 of my hubby's co workers (& their significant others) arrive and then all of our meals are done with a huge group. I'm sure the Four Seasons food is good but I'm thinking a lot of buffets. They are taking us in groups to different restaurants and a luau as well.

So we really want to do a lot of eating (I'm craving pancakes with syrup and macadamia nuts) on our own the first few days. The company has all kinds of excursions planned for us (bike down Haleakala, hike to the waterfalls, snorkeling, golf, spa days, etc.) So we planned to do the Road to Hana and hiking when we're on our own.

We loved Maui! We started each morning with a lot of fitness (so we could spend each day enjoying the food). Nice running trail along the ocean from Four Seasons about 5 miles RT. All of their cardio machines were in a lush garden facing the ocean and outside, about 15 cybex machines for weight work. So we started each day in fitness mode. I didn't realize how much they would be feeding us at the Four Seasons for my husband's company deal. They reserved the grassy area above the ocean for luaus, parties, lunches...was great. Each morning a buffet of fruits and normal breakfast stuffs.

Had my pancake fantasy fulfilled at Four Seasons...macadamia nut pancakes topped with butter, more macadamia nuts and coconut syrup. Not sure where your friend works at the Four Seasons--but the man making my pancakes worked several years in the Hamptons before moving to Maui--working at Four Seasons.

We did make it to Lahaina, to Hana, took the 38 mile ride down Haleakala, did some hiking (had a car and drove as much as could in a few days to some nice hiking points).

Checked out Mama's Fish House after our drive to Hana but we were too full. We had stopped at a few of the side of the road shacks for homemade coconut candy, lots of fresh fruit and such. Definitely will try that restaurant next visit.

Walked around Paia, saw the bakery you referred too--but again we weren't hungry. Next time! We were told that Willie Nelson is trying to put in a bar or restaurant in Paia, and when we left for home he was in our line at the airport in Maui. Very nice guy.

Ronn---Maui--what a beautiful place to get married. They had a few weddings at the Four Seasons, happening just at Sunset. How romantic, how beautiful. It does get windy there in the afternoon though!

You mentioned Maui sweet onions and Mahi Mahi (Mauhi? same thing). I had that every chance I could get. Loved that fish. I ate so many things with macadamia nuts I may have left the island resembling one.

Never saw the giant avocados.
