Fish
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.

Fish was fresh but preparation was just ok. Restaurant is overpriced for the quality. Children’s meals and drinks also too expensive.

I read many reviews on this restaurant before booking. I consider myself a foodie and I must say this was hands down the best meal I have ever had. Every dish was better than the last and I don’t even know how it was possible. I read some reviews that said my steak was over done. Let me be clear about the name of the restaurant. Mama’s FISH house. You will eat the most fresh amazing fish you have ever had here. Now if your trying to get out cheap this isn’t the place either. Your going to pay for it but it was worth every penny!! Cheers! The app below was the best thing I ever ate!

A must-go place for any special occasion (Birthday, Anniversary) or for a truly Epicurean experience. The staff are incredibly attentive, and the food is exquisite. Be sure to make a reservation several days in advance!

Thank you for a wonderful experience that was made extra special by Kevin OMaley, who came over for a nice chat about Oregon State University and The Beavers, who we both support! Service was impeccable as was the food.

Mamas Fish House lived up to its reputation. Everything was perfect from the ambiance to the food. It was expensive but the entrees were generous. We especially enjoyed our waitress “Spin” who made wonderful recommendations and couldn’t have been more delightful!

Food was excellent, as was the service. I appreciated that they continued providing hot water and lemon without me having to ask for it during the meal. Somehow they knew it was our anniversary and celebrated with us; table with a view and card. And fragrant tuberose lei.

We went directly to Mamas Fish House from the airport. We were celebrating my husband’s bday. They added a personal greeting card on the table! Our server, Colette, was amazing! She was very pleasant and fun! She went over the entire menu with us, made great suggestions and was extremely attentive and helpful with accommodating my food allergies. My brother and his wife also thoroughly enjoyed their first Hawaiian experience at Mamas. The food was fresh and delicious, drinks were top shelf and desserts were homemade, melt in your mouth!

I have been had the pleasure of visiting Mama's for more than 40 years for birthdays, anniversaries and sharing with visitors to Maui. The restaurant, its staff and the food has always been the making of a memorable experience.
On our most recent recent our server helped our guest with severe sulfite alergy find food and beverage selections that would not upset her condition.

We stopped there for lunch (be sure to get a reservation) on our last day in Maui. It is not inexpensive but so worth it. The fish is fresh every day and the menu is new every day. I had the macadamia crusted make stuffed with crab. Delicious. My husband had the mahi with a white wine, garlic and caper sauce. Also delicious. The service, the food and the view are great.

Beautiful location. Solid meal, and I can see why this is a standout place for people to visit. Lots of celebrities have been here, as is apparent by the signed photographs while you wait for your table. I would say the landscaping and setting were beautiful, and probably overpowered the food.

I made this reservation for my birthday but the restaurant didnt know about it. They didnt even ask me what the occasion for our dinner was for tonight. Whats the point of indicating the special occasion if the restaurant is not going to care about it?

Our table was available a few minutes before our reservation time. The hostess and the servers were all very personable and knowledgeable. The menu selections are many. I had the Mahi Mahi stuffed with crab and lobster. The only thing better was probably the view of the ocean waves crashing ashore. Not inexpensive at all but certainly worth doing again if I ever make it back to Maui.

The most HORRIBLE dinning experience I ever had. I am saying this only based on our experience. And I am sure (or I hope) this is rare, because this is unacceptable in any restaurant.

We had a 7:30 appointment. Got to our table, then we waited 30 minutes just to get to look at the menus. And by the time we finally get to catch our waiter to order our food, it was almost 8:30, a hour has passed since we sit down. The appetizers came pretty on time. But the thing that bothers me the most, is that we waited almost till 10:00 to get our main course, and they were NOT hot. By that time, we had totally lost all of our appetite. We simple had a few bit and got the check at the front desk.

Obviously I cannot recommend this place to anyone, based on my experience. And it was simply the worst part of our vacation on the magical island of Maui. Very disappointed.

We had dinner at Mamas twice during a recent visit to Maui. It had lost a step, maybe two, in recent years it seems

On our first visit, a shrimp/egg roll sort of appetizer was served lukewarm and soggy, not crisp as it should have been. Fish in a a curry sauce was uniformly over cooked.

On both visits we waited 30 minutes for main courses after our appetizers were cleared. We complained about this on our second visit. We told our mains were being “plated” but still waited more than 10 additional minutes after that. We were told in the way out that they were having “kitchen problems” to which we say “for $60 for an entree fix the problems.”

We’ve been visiting Maui and dining at Mamas for more than 25 years. While the restaurant retains an impeccable setting it is now a factory and clearly a money generating enterprise that isn’t concerned with delivering great food. We can’t recommend it.

Excellent food, service, setting.... I could go on and on. We thought we were there for about 90 minutes, and we were there over three hours— enjoying every minute of it! We never felt rushed but also didn’t feel like the service was slow or lacking. It was all just perfect!
