Wheelchair Jimmy Comments

Located in Kapalua on the Ritz Carleton Resort property on Maui, the Banyan Tree Restaurant is elegant, casual and a bit on the pricey side. We’ve been here a few times to enjoy the spectacular location and wonderful food, and it’s reasonably wheelchair accessible. Parking is the biggest issue but we’ve found a small park off Office Road near the resort that always has open parking spaces. Then it’s about a 100 yard step free roll along a beautiful concrete pathway that winds over the golf course and Ritz Carlton resort directly to the restaurant. If you park at the resort, it’s a circuitous route requiring 2 elevators and a long hallway. I strongly recommend the free small lot in the nearby park.

The restaurant is open air, spacious and the broad menu and food preparations are absolutely wonderful. There’s also a large wheelchair accessible restroom.

On the WJAR rating index, the Banyan Tree Restaurant get a 4. We always enjoy the magnificent setting although finding the small parking lot and getting to the restaurant is always interesting. Thanks you Google Maps.

    We always enjoy the Banyan Tree Restaurant on the magnificent Ritz Carleton Resort property. Great food, drinks and service! The setting in Kapalua is beautifully picturesque. It’s totally wheelchair accessible although parking takes some planning.
