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 handmade tapa print cloths cover the tables. Open air dining is equally exciting, and everyone enjoys watching the windsurfers performing offshore.

Been coming here for 12 years but yesterday was the first time we had such a wonderful server — thank you Lacey. We were celebrating a birthday and Lacey made it feel so special. Her food recommendations were perfect. Tristan Lobster was delicious.

We had the best meals of our entire vacation here, no question. The fresh fish is unparalleled anywhere. The only concern we had was that they appeared to be a bit short staffed, and our server was doing the very best he could, but he couldn’t be everywhere at once, So it was a bit slower than usual. This is truly a special place, and we will be back!

We went here for my moms 70th birthday. From start to finish it was a beautiful time. We actually got there about an hour early, due to other things not taking as long as we thought, and they were able to seat us early. They had a little card on the table wishing my mom a happy birthday. We enjoyed where our table was (right next to the windows). I have Celiac and let them know. Our waitress, was able to steer me I to a entree that would work for me. My mom ordered the Kona fish that was stuffed with lobster and crab with an iced tea to drink. I ordered the short ribs (although not 100% gluten free which was okay because I can have the tiniest amount and have no issue) and added on the blue island shrimp. Everything we had was delicious. They gave my mom a little scream of mushroom soup as a appetizer and they gave me a cucumber and carrot salad. It has been a long time since I have enjoyed everything I ate that much. I would definitely recommend this place as it is very special and a great place to enjoy a delicious dinner.

Best overall dining experience on the island! Mama's never disappoints and is always a top pick for a special occasion. It's the whole package - ambiance, food and service. We make a point to dine here each time we come. We often stay at the Inn on our first night in Maui and have dinner there to get our vacation going.

Mama’s does not disappoint! First time having lunch here as we’ve always dined in the evening. The views are spectacular. And the Onaga and Antarctic Toothfish were melt in your mouth fresh! Shrimp wontons as a starter are out of this world. Top restaurant on the island for sure.

Fantastic place. Been there twice on this trip, but they keep increasing prices way faster than others. The Mac nut Mahi Mahi is now up to $65, a huge increase from just last year and May This are up to $20. Eventually people will rebel at these increases

Hugely overpriced restaurant that can’t even cook fish properly so it’s not rubber. Their $68 bouillabaisse is just a mediocre tasting soup that hasn’t been cooked for 14 hours as required, fish in it was rubber. And who puts garlic in tuna ceviche? The most overrated restaurant.

On my visit to Maui, I went to Mama’s. I cannot say enough great things. Everything single thing was outstanding! I had the Bouillabaisse, my boyfriend had a white fish (started with a K, Konakamachi, I think) in white wine with capers and gnocchi... and our friend had the short ribs... it was all amazing.

We had the very best service too... the server and busser were on top of it. We are from Las Vegas and know good food plus great service. Mama’s is worth every penny and the views... wow!

Highly recommended from friends. But this place is excessively overpriced I know it's Hawaii and I know things are more costly. And I don't mind spending. Food was all delicious and good. Nothing wild. The steak was fantastic cut and seasoned properly. But about 100% markup over what would be a high end standard will not go back for that reason.
