Mala Ocean Tavern is aptly named as it sits right on the sea at Mala, so close that if the tide is right you just might get splashed. This view is amazing, regardless of the time of day. The sunset is incredible as it sets over the island of Lanai. Arrive earlier in the day and you might observe turtles swimming and grazing. Since all this sightseeing will certainly stimulate your appetite, it’s lucky that you’re in good hands with Chef Mark Ellman, Judy Ellman and Ben Klein providing the food. The specialties are internationally inspired menu of small plates, with whole grains, organically and locally sourced ingredients, all expertly prepared.
