    Exceptional service and amazing views of sunset and the tide crashing into the rocks! Coconut shrimp appetizer and catch of the day were wonderful. Only ok stir fry but that’s not their specialty so I get it. So happy they’re back open post-fires and appear to be thriving.

    Nice dinner at Mala. Had the catch of the day and my wife had the stir fry with shrimp. Luckily we had one of the tables with the ocean view. Beautiful location for a sunset dinner. Food was good and Katie our server was great. A bit on the pricey side, but what isn’t in Maui.

    Best dinner we’ve had in Maui yet. The ahi bruschetta was out of this world. Scallops and pork shank were beyond good. Would highly recommend this spot. Right on the water. Waves were practically hitting our table. Such an awesome vibe. Can’t wait to go back!

    Mala ocean Tavern has become our favorite restaurant on Maui. We visited many times on our three week vacation even though we came home this morning. We already miss watching the crashing waves at Mala’s. The food is great, couldn’t ask for a better view, and the whole staff is just terrific. Can’t say enough good things about the people who work there. While you’re there, grab a souvenir. We brought home a beautiful cutting board.🌺
