MAHINA & SUN’s welcomes you to our home. Come and relax as Chef Erik Leong takes you on a culinary journey inspired by Hawaii’s people and places. His menu offers approachable dishes that utilize the very best ingredients to create a flavor journey that will remind every local boy or girl of their childhood kitchen. And for those not raised in Hawaii, his dishes will give you a glimpse into the evolution of local comfort foods.

MAHINA in Hawaiian means moon and with the sun, these two celestial bodies are essential to traditional Hawaiian sailing navigation. A visit to MAHINA & SUN’s is much more than a meal, it is a place where adventurers gather, where new connections are made, and where ideas are inspired, all mapped out over local cuisine and ample pours. Hidden within a swell little spot called the SURFJACK HOTEL & SWIM CLUB, this restaurant will become your second home.
