Ocean Tavern was established in historic Lahaina town in 2004 and overlooks the old Mala Wharf. The restaurant sits right on the water, with each table offering a view of the neighboring islands.

From Brunch to Dinner the food is outstanding! Each menu is well rounded, thoughtful and has options for any pallet. MĀLA makes, HANDS DOWN, the best burger in Maui, Hawaii. Chef Alvin Savella created the “Assassin Burger” for the Late Night Menu, available Friday and Saturday nights from 10pm to Midnight. Heaven on Earth, definitely worth trying!
MĀLA established in 2004 came under new ownership in November 2018. Owners Caleb Hopkins, Ashley Davis, David Fincher, Julian Bonfardin, and Javier Barberi came together with a vision to breathe fresh new energy into MALA and keep this Lahaina staple for locals and guest to enjoy for years to come. Open for Brunch from 9am to 2 pm, Live Music Happy Hour from 2 pm to 4 pm, Dinner from 4pm to 10 pm, and Friday and Saturday open until midnight featuring the Raw Fish & Wagyu Menu by Chef Alvin Savella. The new owners and team have reinvented MALA and have the hottest concept on Maui’s Westside with thoughtful food and stunning atmosphere.
We spent 2 evenings at the Mala Ocean Tavern and absolutely loved this place. Excellent service and food, not to mention a view you will never forget. We highly recommend this place.
