This is the nicest restaurant I have been to in Battle Creek. The food was delirious, but a little pricey. If the food is worth it, I don't mind. The service was great as well. The restaurant has a cute look to it and great atmosphere. The menu stated it was a Mediterranean place, but I didn't really get that... More

Using Tripadvisor of course, we found Malia Mediterranean and we are grateful. Located downtown, it is small with a trendy look. The food is anything but trendy. It was delicious and just the right amount. Our waiter, David was excellent and stood his own with my very funny husband. My husband had a flank steak in a sauce with wide... More

One of my top 5 meals! I am very impressed. We had the Bruchetta... mouth watering. The Wild Mushroom linguine... excellent and my husband had the Swordfish, he said it was very good. Also, the atmosphere is adorable.

Went here for my mom's birthday and it was fabulous! Our waitress was always there to give refills and check on us. The food was to die for and I wish I would've had room for dessert! Definitely will come back again and again

I was on business in battle creek and we stopped for lunch at this restaurant. The wild berry salad was hands down the best salad I have ever had Leafy greens super fresh. Raspberries blue berries strawberries. Pistachios cashews and more. Delicious Gorgonzola and a Gorgonzola dressing that had a bit of tart and a bit of sweet. Others in... More

Was in Battle Creek for a business meeting with four colleagues and stumbled on this for lunch. Will definitely be coming back. Lovely decor, cordial and helpful staff and dynamite salads. Among the five of us we had variations on three of their salads and all declared these were some of the best salads we'd ever had. And warning--they are... More

very good food, we all had different dishes, and every one commented how good it was. The only bad thing is the place closes early at 8PM.

I came for dinner and had great service in a pretty, quaint, and clean establishment. The kitchen is open to viewing but isn't too noisy. They seem to have a decent selection of wine and local beers. The food tends towards Italian. The portions (caesar salad and the flank steak with pasta) were healthy enough for someone that is hungry... More

One of our favorite restaurants anywhere - always interesting menu, outstanding food, and excellent service. Nice selection of wine and great desserts. We love Malia for a special night with the family and our business always brings clients and recruits here. You cannot go wrong!
