Banyon Tree - Travel Dining in Maui

I went with a group of six to enjoy the local fare with international flair menu that is offered at the Banyon Tree, an award-winning restaurant located on the beautiful Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua grounds. Robert was our server and he was fantastic. The Ritz-Carlton Champagne was a group favorite on this evening. We also enjoyed a bottle of Lassegue Bordeaux, as well, and I name-dropped about my dinner with the winemaker's charming wife , Monique and their array of wines. An enjoyable evening with friends overlooking the ocean. Highly Recommended!
