... from waiting over an hour despite reservations... to subpar service with attitude and no personality?! $25 for a kids meal consisting of two fish sticks and some undercooked vegetables? Two and a half hours later we had had enough, and the manager finally admitted to loosing our entree order!!! Apparently their volume as a tourist attraction has replaced quality...... More

The Food, Excellent The Service, Excellent The Ambiance ruined yet again by people looking like they just came in from camping out for a week without showers..... Our waiter was friendly, and efficient..... The gal that brought us our drinks, and everyone around us their drinks was not friendly, and looked flat out disgusted by her job. The Ginger Crusted...

What can I say that hasn't been said? I had what they said was their signature dish, it was a crab-stuffed mahi-mahi with a lobster tail too. It was one of the most delicious things I've tasted. It was $75, and so, so good. What I hadn't seen in reviews was that the setting is as good as the food.... More

This a great restaurant but as most reviews state it is expensive, which is why I didn't give 5 stars. Definitely worthwhile going if it is a first time I'm Maui to see the spectacular ocean views from this converted beach house. Definitely recommend you make a reservation several weeks if not months in advance to ensure you get the... More

My family of 5 ate here for lunch on a Saturday afternoon during our recent trip to Maui. Our bill was $500. Now, we do have 2 children over the age of 21, so drinks were involved. But, be prepared for some very expensive excellent food. It was probably our favorite meal of the week, and we had planned on... More

Mama's Fish House has the best fish on the island! The fish is caught within 24 hours of being served. If you don't like fish the beef spare ribs are fantastic. They are cooked for 8 hours & could be cut with a fork. For dessert the Polynesian Black Pearl is a real treat!

This is by far one of my all time great restaurants. The food was outstanding and the serve matched it. Our res. was for 9:00 and the place was still hopping. We were early and sat at the bar and had a drink. They sat us about 15 minutes early. We had the Venison filet, and a fish salad both... More
