Mama's Fish House is 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. Open air dining is equally exciting, and everyone enjoys watching the windsurfers performing offshore.

Hands down the best meal we had in Maui. Everything was incredible. Our favourites were the Papa’s Sashimi and the Panang Curry.

Highly recommend carving out at least 2 hours to dine here so you can relax and enjoy the menu and the phenomenal view to go with it.

Just an amazing experience, from the surroundings to the food. Our server Nick was spot on with his recommendations and provided first class customer service. Saw wild boar on the menu as an extra, one of my favs, so ordered that as an appetizer. Simply prepared and OH so good. My wife and I shared the Mahi Mahi - Perfectly prepared. Nick told us it was caught earlier today, and the fresh prep and taste shown through. Finished it off with a French press coffee and coconut cake with a lime coconut sorbet. Truly a meal I’ll remember.

Mama's always garners one of the top spots on the best restaurant list in the USA. It's well-earned! Some restaurants don't live up to their reputation. Not Mama's. It's a wonderful experience to share with family & friends. GO!

Food was outstanding, service was disappointing for this price point. Was never asked if I needed any more wine, never asked how the food was. 20 minutes between salad and entree, server apologized for the delay, but never offered anything to compensate...free drink, free dessert. Again for this price point, service should be without reproach.

We were in a huge rush- just “ran” to Mama’s on our 2.25hr layover.... had a fantastic table with a great view. Service was friendly and quick and the food and drink was fantastic- as always! We had 4 appetizers (mahi roll (somewhat plain), sizzling steak in papaya (delicious), ahi wasabi salad (awesome and spicy), onaga sushi ( also delicious). Also they kindly gave us mini key lime pies for a bday surprise- I’ve never ordered key lime pie, as I’m generally not a fan- but this was fantastic! Thanks Mama’s! A great last stop on our way home from vacation!

Night couldn’t have been more perfect. Celebrating anniversaries, sacred time together with family. Started off in the beautiful bar with crazy chill Hawaiian ambiance, moved to the dining room where a front view table had been reserved for us. We all felt so special, like we were their only care. That takes skill. Germaine was beyond excellent, special treatment all the way around. An experience that can’t be repeated and will always live in our minds as a most excellent time! So many mahalos to the entire staff. Always to be recommended 🥰

The food was so masterfully prepared with such a balance of seasonings, it made your tastebuds SING! We wanted to take Jimmy, our server, and his crew home with us! Even the manager came by with a bright smile and conversation. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Celebrating anniversary- 4th visit. Didn’t disappoint but has gotten really expensive. $6 for a soda with a kieki meal was a bit much after paying $25 for their meals. Food was delicious, just a bit pricey. Still love it there. Can’t beat the authentic Hawaiian atmosphere.

The location is really good. Right on the north shore of Maui, the waves there come crashing in and create top notch photo opportunities. We were there in early December 2018, and it was pretty.
The food and drinks are well presented. The menu is not extensive, but it is expensive. With a couple of drinks apiece, the bill for two will approach $200 for lunch or dinner.
My only complaint has to do with what happened after we ate. Both my wife and I were ill within a few hours. We didn't have the same food, but we did both have the little cup of mushroom broth/soup they give you at the beginning, as well as the bread. I suffered for a few hours, and she only for a short time, but it was something we ate there. Otherwise, the food tasted wonderful at the time, and the wait staff as well as the ambiance were exceptional.
It is a once in a lifetime place you should visit so that you can say you did. I liked the food, but I wish we hadn't gotten ill.

Must be special for the price and yes, everything was nicely prepared and served. To accommodate we ordered a few appetizers, a side dish and two entree for the 4 of us and ate family style. The experience and opportunity to try many dishes was perfect. We have been coming to Mama’s for 30+ years. Quality is always outstanding in every respect.
