A word from Mama's Fish House
Mama's Fish House is actually a converted beach house in a coconut grove on a secluded white sand beach. Inside, hinged windows open to let in the trade winds and Polynesian artifacts and original oil paintings decorate tropical hardwood walls. The rooms are filled with spectacular flower arrangements and tapa print cloths cover the tables. Outdoor dining is equally exciting, and everyone enjoys watching the windsurfers performing offshore.Continued

  • "We went to Mama's in Maui to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. It was recommended by a friend who had dined there in the past. Mama's surpassed our expectations. From start to finish the experience was incredible, the flowers, the food, the service, all went into making this an unforgettable evening for us."

  • "We were celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary and we could not have chosen a better restaurant. The food was exceptional, the service outstanding and the venue was so romantic. They even had a card on our table saying "Happy 35th Anniversary" and I was given a beautiful lei to help underline our special occasion. These little details made our evening even more special. We had a table overlooking the beach and we were able to see the beautiful sunset. We would highly recommend Mama's Fish House to our family and friends. Linda Montreal, Canada"
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "The atmosphere and view must cause people to overrate this place. The food was good, but not spectacular - and at the prices ($55 for fish, $70 for steak) they charge it should be much better. So, they do the "please wait in our bar" and buy a $20 drink thing even though your reservation time is now and the table is sitting there empty. Anyway, we had one in our party that had special dietary requirements and they pretty much would not accommodate her, which again is hard to believe given their pricing. I would think at $55 for a piece of fish the chef would come out personally and ask how do you want me to prepare this? We had high hopes for this place, but I would recommend Mala Ocean Tavern or Merriman's over this place."

  • "We dined at Mama's on my husband's birthday. They had a personalized card waiting for him on our table when we arrived. We had a table that looked out onto the ocean and it was a beautiful view. We greatly enjoyed our appetizers, cocktails, entrees, and dessert. If we ever are able to return to Maui, we will be sure to come back to Mama's. Though it is quite pricey, it is worth it due to the quality of the food, service, and ambiance of the restaurant."

  • "Our waiter was Dominic. He was wonderful and had exceptional knowledge of the menu and the restaurant. He helped to guide us to what was popular and why people like each entre. He without a doubt helped to make our experience as great as it was. Thank you, Dominic!!"

  • "This restaurant was recommended to me by several people. It did not disappoint. I celebrated my 40th birthday here and I felt so special. The table had an incredible view and there was even a card personalized to me for my birthday. The food was amazing and if I ever revisit this beautiful island, I will definately be dining here again!"

  • "You can find comparable food at better prices in Lahaina and Kihei, worth experience once or twice"
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "A bit high priced but well worth it!! We are not fish lovers but it is always so good at Mama's that we have to eat it."

  • "Went to mamas on our annual vacation visit, and once again, it was a pure delight. The incredible fish, along with preparations that always seem to work, left us satisfied and happy. Service is still great as well."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "We went to Mama's, since we've been to Maui 4 times without experiencing "the legend" that is Mama's Fish House. The location and view are incredible, the food is fresh and flavorful. The service is good, but a little overwhelming. I think at least 6 different people came to our table at various points. Perhaps if they didn't employ quite so many people, Mama's wouldn't have to overcharge for the food. Our bill for lunch (before tip) was over $220 for 2 adults & 2 kids. The food was good, but you're really paying for the location."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "We had an amazing lunch at Mama's. The macadamia nut encrusted mahimahi was recommended to us prior to going for lunch as the best thing to order on the menu! And, it did not disappoint! The fish was fresh, flavourful - every mouthful a treat. All the staff was friendly and courteous. Our waiter Jensen was attentive, fun and well informed - an outstanding server. This experience was certainly a highlight of our trip to Maui."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Good but very expensive. Great place to try once but I doubt we will go back. Many closer places to paia that are just as good, much less $$ and in walking distabce"

  • "rarely does a restaurant live up to its reputation. This one is an exception . . . it is extremely pricey but worth every penny. From the food to the presentation to the waitstaff TO THE AMBIENCE! Who can beat eating a 5 star meal looking out at the Maui sun setting on a pristine beach?! Paradise is an understatement"
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "As usual Mama's did not disappoint. The mac-nut crusted stuffed mahi was so delicious. The drinks were good (and strong) and all of the entrees at our table were superb. The server could have been a litttle more friendly, but the food more than made up for his unattentiveness and lack of enthusiasm. I wish I could have gone again before we left the island!"
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "My favorite dinner we had in Maui! Delicious, great setting, and service was great!"
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "The seafood served here is certainly of excellent quality, and it is obvious that the kitchen takes exquisite pride in both taste and presentation of their dishes. What we tried was the grilled octopus, sauteed Ono with garlic butter and capers, and steamed Ehu with Hana ginger. The ambiance and view of the restaurant is also unbeatable. Most tables face the ocean. No air conditioning, as its open to outside. The only negative thing I have to say is that the price is mostly for the ambiance, view, and presentation. While the food was prepared nicely, it is similar in quality to something you would find at a good Chinese or Italian restaurant. It's a nice special occasion restaurant."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Incredible location, gardens and scenery! The food and wine list were just as good. Extremely attentive service! Went for our 30th anniversary and were surprised with lots of extras!"
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "The food, ambience, service, and views are exquisite! Plus, they always find ways to make our special occasions memorable in thoughtful ways! Well worth the price!"

  • "My friends refer to me as a foodie and this was the best meal I ever ate! Ever aspect of the meal was incredible. The fresh menu tells you who caught the fish and it's locations. They even have the specific place and altitude the kona coffee originated. My daughter took on sip of the lemon grass soup and said, "This is life". Every part of the ambience, service, and especially the food made my heart warm."

  • "This restaurant makes you say, "well yup, I am in Hawaii right now!" From the decor, to the friendly atmosphere, to the breathtaking waterfront views, to the tropical drinks, to the fresh seafood caught from Maui's waters, this place screams Hawaiian vacation. I am from NJ and have dined at this restaurant twice and it has been absolute Hawaiian perfection each time. It's by no means a local find, but being a tourist is OK when you're eating a fresh seafood meal and drinking mai tai's on the coast of gorgeous Maui."
