We enjoyed lunch so much the first time, we came back with friends to share the great experience. Friendly and welcoming service by Cory made both visits a real treat

Service was fantastic and the ahi bruschetta was out of this world! Also be sure to get the clams!

Whenever on Maui, we always make time to come here. The view, the service, the cocktails and the food are excellent! It is pricey though!

I've been going for a decade or so. It has gotten better and better. It is ocean front looking out on Lahaina harbor and across to Lanai' island with humpback whales spouting and breeching. Outside it is usual to see the green sea turtles eating and surfacing to breath.
There were 6 friends dining today with 6 different majors, 5 different drinks, 4 salads or starters and all was excellent. The wait staff was friendly and superb.
ThisOcean Tavern is a real misnomer...it is a top notch dining establishment for lunch or dinner, or just having a drink in a spectacular location. Prices are on par with this island.
It is a little short on parking during peak times but the walk is well worth it.

I really like Mala and the two sister restaurants Frida and Honu
Great atmosphere....very casual....good food and great Mai Tai
Just all around a blast !! I wouldn’t say the food is excellent but very good and that plus the Hawaiian atmosphere makes it a must

Mala Tavern was a delicious restaurant with plenty to choose from. Their wine list and craft beer list was also vey good. The only minor complaint was that it was very noisy which made it hard to have a conversation sometimes. The free Valet parking was also very helpful.
Most of all, the food was delicious, healthy and fulfilling! It’s definitely a fantastic restaurant and I highly recommend going there.
