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

Diner Reviews
  • "The food is probably the best we've ever had! We've dined at the best restaurants in New York City, and Mama's Fish House is the top of our list! Very pricey, but worth it! Magnificent views! Make your reservation way in advance. When we got to the restaurant a couple before us was begging for a table for two, but they were told that their waiting list was 75 names long. A true gem! A must to dine at for one-of-a-kind dining experience. "

  • "I really wanted to love this place. I am gluten-free and called prior to make sure that this could be accommodated. My waiter appeared to be knowledgeable and claimed that he was gluten-free himself. There were few gluten-free options; our waiter specifically recommended the Ono, as it was supposedly gluten-free as is. Because of his recommendation, I chose the Ono. As it transpires, the marinade was actually not gluten free. Rather than getting the choice of selecting a different menu option, I was simply told that the marinade was left off but that I would still love my dish. When my fish came out, it was incredibly dry and flavorless. There was no question that the marinade was necessary to the dish. It was seriously disappointing. "

  • "We love to go to Mama's each time we visit Maui. This was our first time to go for lunch and we really enjoyed the view! The food as always was spectacular and I had the best Mai Tai I've ever had. I also had the best coconut cake I've ever tasted!! I always recommend Mama's when I hear that friends are visiting Maui."

  • "Second time at this restaurant and this visit as great as we remembered from the last. Wonderful island ambiance, exceptional selection and preparation, with service to match. Save this for your finale dinner on Maui except that, you will wish you could come back the next night. "

  • "When we get off the plane in Kahului Maui the first place we go is to Mama's Fishhouse in Paia. The beautiful Hawaiian ambiance, the incredible view of the beach and ocean, the excellent service and outstanding food and drinks are a few of the things that make this place extra special. I've been enjoying Mama's for over 20 years with family and friends and it is always a very special experience! We used to go for dinner but now we love to go for lunch so we can really enjoy the beautiful setting on the beach! You won't be disappointed!"

  • "As soon as we get off the plane we head straight to Mama's Fish House for lunch. Fantastic locally caught fresh fish. The restaurant is open air with beautiful tropical flower arrangements throughout. The scenery is breath taking of the beach, ocean & tropical plants & palm trees. The service and the food is always outstanding!! For appetizers we tried the Kampachi Cheek crispy-fried, Grille Maui octopus & Lobster Guacamole with house made sweet potato & taro crisps. For lunch my teenage son had the pan seared Opah with Maui Onion. My husband enjoyed the Ono & I had the Mahi-mahi stuffed with lobster and crab baked in a macadamia nut crust. Awesome desserts...try "The Black Pearl" beautiful presentation and tropical drinks!"

  • "Although it's an expensive lunch, it's always worth it. We stay at Napili and make a point of making the drive anytime we are on Maui. One of my favorite places. You just can't beat the entire package and friends we take there for the first time, are always impressed. Highly recommend checking it out if you've never experienced it. "

  • "Have returned to Mama's on several occasions. The seafood is always amazing. The selection and preparations of the fish is first class. The staff is truly tuned to the diners' needs and desires. Price is on the high side. But, worth the money."

  • "Don't let the name fool you, celebrities, VIPs, and common folk all mix here to get the great ambiance and FRESH seafood. Everything on the menu was caught the morning it is served. The menu even tells who caught it and where. Get there early if you want a window seat, if you can in time for sunset. They also offer rooms if you want to stay nearby."

  • "If you do not enjoy fabulous local caught, fresh food, knowledgable wait staff and a leasurely meal, this is not the place for you! Best of Maui! A visit to Maui is not complete without a visit to Mamas Fish House!"

  • "Finally, my husband and I were able to have dinner alone (without kids 8, 6, & 4). Finally, we were able to try Mama's Fish House. Everyone in my family has been and has raved about how magical it is, how delicious it is, how overall awesome it is. We heard about a signature dish, we heard about the beautiful setting, the magical sunsets, the wholesome and friendly appearance of the staff, and the changing menu that, expensive, never lets anyone down. This place lived up to all the hype. It was beautiful, but not overly stuffy. It was really good tasting food, but not unrecognizable (as in not too fancy), and the proportions were right. The drinks were good and the sunset was pretty. This place has it all - being in Hawaii works, too!"

  • "Mama's Fish House is located on a beautiful beach in Maui. We were a party of 4 and had a table with a direct view of the beach, dining on a Sunday mid afternoon. Service was prompt and helpful. Favorites were the appetizers, Wasabi Crusted Calamari and the Hawaiian Shrimp Wonton. Dinner favorites were MahiMahi stuffed with lobster and crab, a duck dish not sure of the name, and the Panang Curry. We also had the Lilikoi Crème Brulee and homemade Coconut Carmel ice cream. I recommend Mama for special occasions. We always take our visitors to Mama's Fish House."

  • "The location is lovely, the atmosphere bustling and the service is outstanding. The crab cakes were good but not the best we have had. The Polynesian prawn and pork dishes were delicious. Although it was a lovely lunch it was very expensive and very touristy."

  • "We had an outstanding dinner at Mama's Fish House on Saturday. The fish was fresh and beautifully presented. Our server provided enthusiastic, detailed descriptions of the menu items which made choosing especially difficult. We wanted to sample everything! We will return and highly recommend this restaurant. Mahalo!"

  • "The food was incredible. The restaurant was an amazing venue that truly provided the feeling of dining on a tropical island - fitting for Maui. The location is serene with a great view of the ocean and a place to relax and watch the waves crash in. Our server, as well as the entire wait staff, were outstanding. Great place that I would highly recommend."

  • "From the walk in through the door way, it was perfect! The view, the staff, the food, all perfect. Loved that the menu told us who caught the fish we ordered, when and where they caught it earlier that day, and how they caught it (i.e. bottom fishing, trolling, etc.). Worth the extra money if you want a truly special dinner."

It was rainy when we went and even with the rain it was wonderful. The restaurant is beautiful. One of the best spots for dinner in all of Hawaii! If you do not go you will really miss out. On a wonderful gem"
