Maluca is very aesthetically pleasing, and their service matches the ambience. The staff is always friendly + happy to serve, + we love the complementary popcorn they serve. They have a great wine selection, and always play great music. A great first date spot! (I know from experience) :)

Perfect venue for our BNI Masterminds group of 40 People to celebrate the season! Special thanks to Richard, Tammy and Debbie and the attentive staff serving drinks and fabulous food both hot and cold and ever so delectable, I would highly recommend Maluca as a place to go for a great evening out

This restaurant is a kind of modern, yet classic, trendy place to go. The menu is substantial, yet it doesn't feel like you have too many choices. The service was lovely, it was almost like we had a personal server for our table alone. The seating was a but strange, there were 8 of us and I felt like the... More

Last night my husband and I went to Maluca for drinks. It was around 10:45pm and I wasn't sure if they would still be serving or not. We sat at the bar and the bartender was unbelievable. He made some suggestions and we decided to pick something he recommended. It was a great place and my husband and I thought... More

Exactly what Oakville needs, cocktails, wine and simple but delicious food. Great place for a date or catching up with old friends. Highly recommended

We tried their burgers which were first rate. They also offered fresh tasty salads and a nice variety of other options for different tastes. The waitress was helpful and we found a quiet location where we could enjoy conversation.

It doesn't happen very often that I find a restaurant of such a great quality and don't leave with an empty wallet. This place offers combination of tasty and plentiful food with a great selection of wines. Friendly staff, good atmosphere. If you are a meat eater, I would recommend the charcuterie as an appetizer and the steak as a... More

Unsure about where to eat, while visiting Oakville and with the two of us having very different tastes - we couldn't decide/agree on a place for dinner. We just happened by Maluca and saw a menu in the window. It was perfect for the both of us! They had food that appealed from the meat eater to the vegetarian. The... More

Poor menu, indifferent service. Perhaps that's the reason it's so often empty. Excellent location. Bar scene must make enough money to keep the place going.

It was a quiet night...Tuesday...only 4 tables with customers.....so the service staff took the time to do other things. I was woman alone... Got my water, got my wine....got my dinner. I was asked how dinner was on my last 3 bites....politely said it was fine. On the environment: I thought the club music was a bit loud for a... More
