Located on Front Street in Lahaina, this Pacific Rim/Mediterranean bistro is so close to the shoreline it almost feels like you’re floating on the water. Mala is perfect for a lively night out with people who like to share, since you’re going to want to order all the tapas-style starters on the menu. Start with a round of oyster shooters before splitting plates like the spicy lamb pita, whole wok-fried fresh fish, and charred octopus with house-made chorizo, which all pair perfectly with a cocktail, like the Makai Tai topped with fruity foam. It’s a great spot to go before heading to the bars that run down Front Street or to come back to after for a nightcap and a snack since their late-night Happy Hour with food and drink specials goes from 10pm-12am.
