Island of Maui

Famed chef-owner Mark Ellman couldn’t have placed this restaurant closer to the ocean without fins and snorkel: at water’s edge where sea turtles come to surf. Mala’s eclectic cuisine is inspired by sun-drenched locations around the world. An endless array of tapas and larger dishes including his signature Avalon Seared Sashimi, Seared Ahi Bruschetta, Mediterranean Quartet, and Wok-Fried Brussel Sprouts. An intimate and casually chic ambiance with dining room, bar seating and an open-air lanai overlooking historic Mala Wharf. ‘Aipono Award winner “Best Oceanfront Dining” two years in a row. Maui’s “Best Ocean Tavern” (BEST Guidebook 2013).
