“On The Menu” Reveals The Hideaway at Kapalua Bay
When thinking of Montage at Kapalua Bay, words like “classy,” “upscale” and “quality” may come to mind. But with the unveiling of The Hideaway, they also want you to think “casual,” “convenient” and “family-friendly.”
“If you just got in from the airport, had a minimum six-hour flight in plus a drive from the other side, it’s a place you can go and pick something up, not have to get a reservation, not have to wait around for anything. Speed of service is a focus for us in this particular outlet,” explains Montage Kapalua Bay chef de cuisine Robert Barrera.
- The space that previously housed the Cane & Canoe bar was thoughtfully renovated and transformed into The Hideaway at Kapalua Bay in February. The menu features small bites and share plates like blistered shishito peppers, chicken wings, coconut shrimp, lobster mac & cheese and spiced malasadas, along with larger items such as a wagyu hamburger, chicken teriyaki sandwich and flatbread, including a custom addition coming soon.
- “Maui Artisan Flatbread is producing a flatbread for us,” Barrera explains. “Kind of a play on a caprese but instead of mozzarella it’s using goat cheese from Surfing Goat Farm, some caramelized Maui onion, local arugula and possibly incorporating fresh truffle into that.”
Barrera and his team use local products whenever possible. They’ll be releasing a “twilight menu” come April with more quality favorites, featuring some substantial offerings as well.
“We’re looking at possible additions of a couple steaks or some entrée-sized fish dishes,” he says.
The Hideaway is open from 4:30 to 10 p.m. nightly, with live music between 6 and 9 p.m. They plan to expand on the diversity of music as well.
“We have a couple of other musicians and try to rotate out a little more, so you have something for everybody,” adds Barrera.
The bar has a range of options, including a menu of six eclectic signature cocktails that will keep you guessing!! Montage Kapalua Bay beverage manager Zoe Benrexi says she hopes her visual creations inspire guests to show off the craft cocktails on social media. Learn more about a few of the favorites in our video above.
“We’re intending on having a rotating menu, changing up the offerings to kind of suit the season and what’s available,” Benrexi explains. “Something to come back for!!”
