Mala Ocean Tavern, created by famed restaurateur Mark Ellman, is a waterfront bistro featuring Mediterranean and Pacific Rim cuisine, fine wines, craft beers, specialty cocktails, and some of the most spectacular sunset ocean views on Maui.

Mala was voted Best Oceanfront Dining on Maui 2019 by Maui No Ka Oi magazine.

Happy hour at Mala Ocean Tavern in Lahaina is from 2pm-4pm daily featuring discounted appetizers, flatbreads, cocktails, wine, beers, and well drinks.

Service was great. All were so friendly! Will come back one day!!!!”

Rosie M., October 2022

“Mala was wonderful! The staff was great and really enjoyed Eric who was our server. Cocktails were phenomenal. You can tell it’s another restaurant that’s elevating the food scene in Maui.

We got the calamari (super tender & fresh), the scallops, and the catch of the day with a squash puree that you just want a bowl of all to yourself. Great experience…will be back again!”

Kristen F., October 2022

“Just came back home from vacationing in Maui. And this place was recommend by locals. They did not disappoint my wife and I had an amazing experience.

Food was great…views were spectacular! Service was absolutely top notch. Our server Lisa was incredible she made it even more memorable. I will definitely come here again one day. Thank you!”

Elvis R., October 2022

“This is one of the best meals I’ve had in Maui. Their patio is lovely. The servers are attentive and welcoming. Eric was our server; he was delightful. The ahi bruschetta is delicious and unique.

We also ordered the catch of the day poisson, which was a local bottom feeder fish that was flavorful and had a nice full texture and came with a delicious mushroom sauce. This place is a gem!”

Kaly K., January 2022

“Great vibes! Beautiful views. Akoni was playing some great background music. Sergio and Lucas were super attentive and always smiling. And the food was all so delicious! We will definitely be back.”

Shannon H., January 2022

“The food at happy hour was great and the view was gorgeous. Best calamari I’ve had.”

Evan S., January 2022

“Came here with a friend to grab a bite to eat. The food was really good and the location is amazing. Its one of the few restaurants in Maui right on the water. We came in the evening which was very peaceful but I imagine sunset is beautiful.

We ordered so much but what stood out to me was the oyster shooters. I cant wait to go back and try other items. Highly recommended for a chill dinner or a sunset dinner. We came without a reservation but I do recommend making one.”

S.H., January 2022

“View and service are incredible… We sat at the bar and Nestor was polite, gave great suggestions and was very attentive. The Greek salad had a lot of toppings and the dressing was good but overall, our experience highlights were Nestor and the view!”

Kari V., January 2022

  1. Mala has been one of my favorite restaurants / happy hour places for a long time. As you can see from the photos, it is perched right on the water as close as you can possibly get without going swimming. The service is always amazing. And luckily, although this restaurant is super popular and reservations are highly recommended, you can still pop in for happy hour and get a seat at the bar most days. Definitely check out Mala the next time you’re in Lahaina.

  2. Mala is open with all COVID restrictions in place and we had a spectacular time doing happy hour there this week! The $3 Oyster Shooters are to die for and we had several. As far as ocean front or ocean view dining, Mala gets you as close to the actual water as any restaurant on Maui. I highly recommend checking out Mala Ocean Tavern and doing their happy hour the next time you are in Lahaina.

  3. We just updated the happy hour menu at Mala in Lahaina, Maui! Mahalo to the Mala staff and management for the amazing happy hour. This is a must-stop next time you are in Lahaina.
