If you go to Maui, make this part of the end of your trip! If you go too soon, the rest of your trip will seem mediocre! MAKE A RESERVATION. Mama's Fish House is the Finest restaurant on the Island of Maui, I'm my opinion! And in many others as well! Located literally feet from the ocean, with a gorgeous... More

We stopped in on our way back from Hana and I suppose we were still in Hana mode and didn't realize we were driving in to what we did. Valet parking gave us the first hint that this was not a food truck. Of course they couldn't seat us but were very lovely and offered us seats at the bar.... More

We returned to Mama's after dining there during our last visit. The location is great as is the service and drinks. The food was good but not worth the high prices. Sorry to say Mama's, we won't be back....

It's the most expensive restaurant, paying for the ambiance as much as the food. However, the food is brilliant. We shared an appetizer of guacamole with crab. My main was the stuffed Mahi Mahi with lobster tails - such wonderful flavours! My wife enjoyed her Ahi special too.

We had the privilege of dining at this spectacular restaurant on Easter Sunday, for dinner. The views were amazing until the rain storm. Still a beautiful ambience, wonderful service and an outstanding menu. The portions were plentiful and to be honest, it was probably the best fish dish that I have ever had, during my years of dining around the... More

We had an amazing dinner at Mama's Fish House 6 years ago where my husband proposed to me on the beach by the torches! Returned the following year. Wonderful!! This year, we were able to vacation in Maui and, of course, had another great experience at Mama's. The food is so fresh and delicious and the service is top notch.... More

Anastasia, our server, gave us the lay of the land and helped us make the best choices for our tastes. The ahi and coconut milk ceviche was exceptional, as were our mains (seasonal fish) and desserts. This restaurant -- this place -- is what dreams are made of. You are missing the best of Maui if you don't make it... More

This restaurant has it all! It is consistently good. The food is wonderful, the ambience and service is great. We have been going to this restaurant for years, every time we come to Maui (annually) and although it is a trek to get there it is worth everything. There are few restaurants which can compete with Mainland restaurants and this... More
