Fodor's Expert Review Mala Ocean Tavern

$$$$ Lahaina Modern Hawaiian Fodor's Choice

Chef-owner Mark Ellman has been revolutionizing Maui's food scene since the 1980s, and the menu at this oceanfront—the lanai juts out over the water—standout reflects Mark's and his wife Judy's world travels, with dishes influenced by the Middle East, the Mediterranean, Italy, Bali, and Thailand. There's a focus on ingredients that promote local sustainability, and as you might expect, the cocktails and wine list are great, too.
