    We went on the recommendation of someone local. We heard they have done a lot for the people of Lahaina since the fire. I liked it. I though $61 for 4 scallops was crazy but we enjoyed our food and the service. I will recommend it and and go again.

    Best service and food in the area. Been coming here year after year and have never been disappointed.. bar area is the best for service and conversation. Need to make resers usually in advance for the main dining room. Don’t miss this great quaint restaurant when on Maui.

    This place always delivers. Excellent menu that isn't overwhelming with too many options. Seafood heavy but a few creative turf dishes as well. Everything from apps to desserts has a little artistic flair that fully avoids being pretentious. You'll find something you love. Great little place on the water. Call it cozy, but comfortable. Staff is always spot on. Professional & knowledgeable with the right mix of fun interaction. Not cheap, not overpriced either. Solid value. We love it and make a point of going every trip to Maui.

    We had the Caesar salad and the rib eye dinner. Both were great portions and they were delicious. The service was wonderful and all employees were so friendly.

    The catch of the day 4/23/24 was overdone and dry. It was a white fish ordered by 3 of the 4 of us. Told others entering not to order it.

    We are frequent diners at Mala, and the service and food are consistently excellent. We were especially blessed by a display of large turtles foraging in the surf.
