For our ‘last fine dining dinner’ before packing up and returning home, Don booked a table at Sarento’s On The Beach. Dear God in heaven, it is just that. The waves, continuously lapping against the rocks and sand, are mesmerizing right in front of your table along with the ocean breeze, is wonderful, warm not chilly.
This is an evening to enjoy. Our server(s) Ryan and Mikey and a couple of other young gentlemen make sure all is well at your table. The best thing we noticed is the teamwork.
Okay, as this is our last night out, so to speak, I order my favourite chocolate martini. WOW! This is a great choice and one of the best ones yet, and Don ordered a Clausthaler. They leave you alone while you peruse their menu and this was our choice:
We decided to split the appetizer Portabello Napoleon (eggplant, Mozzarella di Bufalo and tomato, Arugla Pesto. YUM!
The Don ordered the Grilled Hawaiian Ahi Tuna , served rare, goat cheese gnocchi, triple blanched garlic puree, Puttanesca sauce.He loved it as there was not a crumb left
I ordered Cotolette Capricciosa, herb crusted Chicken Milanese style, white truffle oil vinaigrette. Three huge pieces of melt-in-your-mouth deliciousness. I could only muster two pieces and I was done. Their menu on line states Veal, but the menu on premises, states a change to chicken.
For dessert, we ordered the pannacotta with fruit and, for me, the fruit and sauce was far too tart for me. Without even thinking, our server Mikey, took it off the bill. No fuss…nothing! This is customer service at its best, We only made a comment in passing, certainly not expecting anything.
This meal was absolutely awesome; the ambience is breathtaking.. You should not miss this restaurant when on Maui.
Don and I vote this #1 in ambience, location and, for me, the best meal on Maui.
