Mala Ocean Tavern Review
This was the second time on this trip we went to this awesome oceanside restaurant in Lahaina, and I just had to write about it. Both times we went to Mala an Ocean Tavern have been amazing! The food at Mala was incredibly well prepared and very tasty. We’ve never been so satisfied and “tummy happy” after a meal! If you go there, please do yourself a favor and order their Ahi Bruchetta and the steamed Manilla Clams with Grilled Pita; I promise you won’t regret it!…. It’s also very convenient to downtown Lahaina, and has the added advantage of valet parking, which can definitely be an issue in Lahaina. It’s right on the water, so everywhere you sit has gorgeous ocean views – great for a romantic sunset dinner!
Perhaps the best part was the wonderful waitstaff at Mala – everything they promised (tender calamari, lots of unique fish preparations to choose from, amazingly fresh and delicious mango margaritas) Mala delivered. You can check out their menu at MalaOceanTavern.com, or call for reservations at (808) 667-9394. Can’t recommend this restaurant highly enough! Check out their sister restaurant Down the Hatch, too!
