We had a great dinner. This is a place with a lot of character. Ramshackle looking on the outside, and very elegant and warm on the inside. Great selections on the menu and a very friendly accommodating staff who made some adjustments to find us a table since we lacked a reservation.

We came to Ma'la towards the end of our stay in Maui. Before this, I was convinced that the food on the island was just not good. We had started getting chicken nuggets and pizzas. We found this restaurant by accident after we got lost leaving the supermarket and decided to give it a whirl. The place is simple and fairly small. The food was amazing. The waiter told us that the most popular pupu was the seared ahi bruschetta. We tried this and it was delicious as expected. Both meals were fabulous. I had the fresh market fish special which was red snapper. We were so full but we even got dessert to go (bread pudding). The view is also beautiful. It's a perfect place to watch the sunset. Make reservations or show up early to get a spot on the lanai.

This place is great! We love sitting at the bar and having the ocean waves crash against the wall and the open windows. The food is amazing and the ambiance is perfect. It is pricey but worth every penny! Love this place!
