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
  • "Dinner and service were excellent. We drove from Wailea (40 min) and definitely worth it! The ambience has a nice buzz in the evening. (Our reservation was at 8pm, a little bit 'later' for Hawaiian dinner, but was still very busy.) Their menu has a wonderful lineup of fish. Suggestion: Don't necessary go for the Ahi (found on almost every menu in Hawaii), because they have so many other interesting seafood dishes. Try to make a reservation before you arrive in Maui."

  • "We were looking for a delicious dining experience and were not disappointed at this landmark restaurant. Although we had late reservations, we were able to get in early which was a plus. The waiter was extremely knowledgable and answered all questions. From the drinks to dessert, the food was not only a pleasure to eat, but also a visual delight. I would highly recommend to all my Kodiak friends that visit Maui!"

  • "From the flower arrangements to the ocean views, attentive staff, excellent food--it's perfect venue to celebrate milestone birthdays and family visits. Our entrees consisted of a large, perfectly fried whole fish (caught that morning). The other entrees--duck and kahlua pork were tender and equally delicious. The black pearl mousse, home made vanilla and mango ice cream for the celebrants were a perfect way to end our wonderful lunch!"

  • "This is the kind of restaurant that you dream of going to again after you've been...since we went I've been dreaming of the ceviche served in a coconut, wishing I could take my tastebuds back there again soon. Our server was wonderful, the other wait staff were kind, thoughtful, and very quick to take great care of us. The view is amazing and the ambiance is very nice as well. Although it is an expensive meal, it is well worth it as this is a once in a lifetime experience!"

  • "My husband and I went to Mammas for our honeymoon and it just so happened to be his birthday too. We were treated wonderfully from the moment we arrived. There were special signs on the table awaiting us with congratulations and a birthday wish. Get a table by the windows, they're beautiful. The Food was excellent, as it should be because it was expensive. Worth the experience !"

  • "Mama's fish house is a great place for anyone looking for a more than casual dinner. Although the attire can be casual the food is not. The service was fabulous, the food was exceptional. We had to drive a hour to get there but we'll worth the drive. We had an appetizer, 3 entrees, and dessert for about $200."

  • "Mama's produced the freshest and most professionally prepared seafood we have ever eaten, and we have traveled the world. Our waiter JeffreyS not only knew his menu top to bottom by memory, but really knew his fish overall from ocean to table. His service was beyond outstanding, and in another class above, at the height of all things possible. He was always there when we needed him and never when we didn't. We arrived while it was still light, sat by the window, watched the night come on, and watched as the tiki candles were lit on the beach for a perfect dining ambiance and atmosphere."

  • "Mama's Fish House was recommended by many for a birthday celebration dinner while vacation on Maui. We were staying in Kaanapali so the trip was about 65 minutes and worth the drive. I suggest an early seating and dress appropriately. If you do you might receive an open window seat that is priceless for that special occasion. The service and food courses were exceptional. The grounds of the property was so picturesque that do not forget your camera or smart phone. Mama's Fish House is a must for a special Hawaiian Celebration Dinner with a loved one."

  • "We have been to Mama's twice and the food, service, ambience and location are wonderful. The only thing to be aware of is how expensive it is. We had not been there for 4 years and were shocked at the prices. Be prepared!"

  • "Great location, great food friendly people (left my wife a note on the table wishing us a happy anniversary and we got the best seat in the house) however you may want to take out a loan before you go $$$$$$$."

  • "Location, Service, Food were all very good. Food maybe wasn't as great as I had expected. Service was excellent and the location is very nice. But the price of our dinner was just absolutely ridiculously high. Our family of 4 with 2 adults and 2 kids (11, 14) had dinner which came to more than $400. We heard good things about Mama's and finally tried it. I'm glad we did, but given the cost, I can't see us ever going back. The positive things about Mama's certainly do not justify the cost of this place, and the food was not the best we had on Maui either so I don't understand how they can charge what they do."

  • "Took my wife here for a special birthday meal and made a brief note of that in my open table reservation request. When we arrived for the reservation there was a pre-made card for my wife from "Mama". What an awesome touch! Truly made us feel very special in a very busy restaurant and totally worth the cost that you pay to eat here. View and food were amazing."

  • "This is one of Maui's best! Hadn't been here in about 6-7 years, but still fantastic. MUST have reservations, but they're very good in getting you in at a reasonable time, and the food is exceptional. Would be high on our list of restaurants next time we're back."

  • "My wife and I cannot express how great Mama's is! The flavor of every single item was exquisite! Extremely knowledgeable staff and management. The view of the locals fishing in the small private bay during sunset was over the top.On our honeymoon, we forgot our credit card at another restaurant. After eating our over the top meal, we realized we had nothing to pay for our meal. The management and staff were extremely understanding and went above and beyond to remedy the situation."

The food is perfectly prepared and so fresh. I love the Kailua pork rice! The ahi sashimi was a great way to begin our meal. Mahalo!"

The black pearl dessert is not only fabulous but so beautiful you may not want to eat it all. Our waiter was friendly and helpful without being intrusive. It's definitely worth the experience."

  • "We had a great time at Mama's Fish House for a romantic dinner. We had the stuffed mahi-mahi, the ceviche, the seared tenderloin in papaya, and the wasabi-crusted calamari - everything was very delicious! Our server Joel was warm and helpful and had great recommendations. The restaurant is how my husband would describe it - 'somewhere Tony Montana from Scarface would go for dinner'!"
