The show was great with excellent performers and crew. It was attended by a big crowd. Too Many people for my comfort and you have to share table with strangers. Luckily we sat with nice people. The food was sub par. If you're not into food then watch the show. Just consider you paid for the show with free food.

The Luau Kalamaku was excellent. We were greeted with fresh flower leis, handsome musicians, a great family photo op. The pre show and atmosphere was lovely. The food was good too. We had the buffet. The main show with the dancing and story telling was really impressive. We brought our teenage grandsons and our daughter. It was enjoyed by all very much. We visited Hawaii 15 years ago so we knew what to expect but this was even more. We high recommend this Luau.

We were on a afternoon arrival cruise ship and was thrilled to be able to have an activity for the evening. (I highly recommend booking 2-3 months in advance) I was told by locals this was one of 2 authentic family run luaus that told a story. We purchased the gold tickets- definitely worth the extra. The vendors inside were great quality- I purchased a hand woven gold/silver bracelet that was beautiful! The show was spectacular! Everything I would have wanted. The costumes were beyond beautiful. It was very well done and just the right amount of time. The roasted pig was great- everything else was kinda average as far as food goes. But I have no complaints- I came for the show.
