About Malia

Simply delicious cuisine

that goes far beyond the ordinary.

Quality ingredients that will tempt your taste buds. Unique, authentic dishes and truly fresh flavors, all prepared by a culinary team of experts who appreciate good food…and presented by friendly, knowledgeable people who are pleased to serve you. Enjoy all this and more in the relaxed and comfortable atmosphere of the new Malia on Sanibel Island, located at the entrance of Sanibel Island Golf Club.

“It’s a new beginning with traditional values and personalized service,” says Owner and Chef of Malia, Jeff Samson. “Patrons know what they want and how they want to be treated – it’s as simple as that. Our new restaurant allows for more quality time with family and friends in a relaxed atmosphere…and also offers couples the opportunity to enjoy a romantic evening on the island – it’s a simply delicious experience for everyone!”

Your first Malia experience will sizzle your senses with the aromas of exquisite prime beef filet and simmering sauces, ladled over hand-made pastas…and leave you coming back for more. For the pasta lover, sample the Melenzana and Sausage Linguini with roasted eggplant, Italian sausage, San Marzano tomatoes and fennel tossed with hand cut linguini and grated romano…or if you favor fish and seafood, delight in the taste of the fresh grilled swordfish with rosemary and lemon served with a seven bean sauté, caramel shallots, sage and roasted peppers in a citrus oil. Quite simply, Malia is a total food experience, not only providing customers with the highest quality, freshest local ingredients, but with a passion and love of extraordinary cuisine as well.

Malia also prides itself on simple values too…putting customer needs and wants first, offering supreme quality and unparalleled service, presenting a family friendly atmosphere, and above all, the trust and respect that keeps bringing people back.
