We had heard from everyone who has visited Maui that Mama's was great. So often, restaurants that have this reputation don't quite meet the expectations. Not so Mama's! Not only is the food superb but so is the beautiful venue and the service was warm...More

Obviously Mama's Fish House has the reputation, and it is deserved. Absolutely wonderful mean, with a beautiful setting on the beach. The bouillabaisse was without a doubt the best I've had anywhere!

True to others review, this place is a gem. The food was unbelievable, but I most enjoyed the historical site and the abundance of flowers. I would compare this evening to going to a luau on many ways, but the food was better than many...More

Excellent!!!! The food and service were fantastic. While the cost is a little pricey, the food and experience were well worth it. This was our first time at Mama's Fish House, but definitely will not be our last. Glenn H.

Depends when you show up. For dinner, absolutely make a reservation since they are not near much if you don't have one and get turned away. Lunch more likely if you show up right when they open, but easier on both counts... More
