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.

Service was exemplary as well as the meal. Made reservations a few weeks back to celebrate our anniversary. The appetizer was the crab cakes served with fire and ice salsa, didn’t use the salsa as the crab cakes were quite delicious on their own merit, full of mostly crab. The stuffed mahi mahi was stuffed with crab and topped with lobster, set on a nice amount of purple sweet potatoes and garnished with very tender asparagus. The mahi mahi was a great portion and was better than I’d hoped. A definite must try if you find yourself with plans to be on Maui, make reservations!

Visited with my family while in Maui. EVERYONE said to dine there and we were not disappointed! Only drawback for us was that we only made our reservation 3 weeks beforehand so had to take a later reservation and couldn't see the open from our table. When we go back, we will definitely plan ahead and shoot for an earlier seating. The ceviche was AMAZING! All of our meals were superb and the presentation was delightful!

Every time we come to Maui we eat at Mama’s at least once, including two anniversaries. Its that kind of place. Ive been nowhere else in the world where location, ambience, food and service come together as the experience that is Mama’s. The food is so consistently good that its hard to recommend something in particular. The lobster guacamole appetizer is great when on the menu. I favor the Hawaiian dinner with wild boar, mahi-mahi, a seaweed octopus thing that is to die for, poke, poi, a salsa, etc... For dessert there is really only one choice, the Black Pearl. It tastes great but the presentation has to be among the best in the world. Had eaten here twice unaware of it until I saw a pic of it in Guitar Afficiando Magazine?! Its amazing.

I try to visit Mama's Fish House every year. The food is great as well as the drinks. Where they could improve is #1 run a few more fans (even at 11:00 am the restaurant is hot and humid) #2 include a few more menu items that are lighter or vegetarian #3 be willing to put larger parties together even if you have to put two tables together and #4 fans in the restrooms. I believe Mama's is overpriced but the food and service is excellent. If you are going to be in the area, then I think it is worth the drive. However, if you are on the west side of Maui, the drive is long and one can not enjoy more than one of their specialty drinks because one has to drive back. Of course, the location is gorgeous and makes beautiful pictures. There is probably no other scenery quite like it.

It’s a must try. Be prepared to pay good money. It’s not cheap, but the quality is good, and the service is excellent. The restaurant itself is beautiful. Worth the visit. Right on the beach. Give it a try. Reservations are hard to come by so book early.

Way too much money for what you get. Much better options on the island for the money. At over $100 each for lunch you should have better service and more food (small portions).

Way way overpriced for what you get compared to other options on the island. The food portions are super small. The waiter was clearly annoyed when my daughter asked him to repeat the verbal vegan menu options. The meal took around 45 minutes to come out and the waiter didn’t seem to care. He definitely wanted to push up the bill by asking if we wanted more drinks, appetizers, etc and was annoyed that we didn’t order more. You get the feel here if you spend money they are nice? Otherwise please along. Don’t go out of your way to come here. If it’s a special occasion and you have no problem spending over easily over $100 per person on lunch then go for it, they will love you and you will have fun.

I was skeptical at first with all the rave reviews but I was quite impressed with their fresh fish and wonderful service. Home made bread and Poi you need to try. You may not like the Poi but at least you tried the best home made Poi in HI.
Stuffed Mahi Mahi was wonderful as was the Mahi Mahi spring roll.

We debated making the trip out to Mama’s as it was over an hour from our hotel but I’m so glad we went for it. The service, ambiance, and food/cocktails were all incredible. It was a lovely way to celebrate our engagement and I would recommend it to anyone!

It’s unfair that we did not receive “100 points” for this dining experience. The pricing alone should’ve allowed us the points. It was an amazing experience. Great atmosphere, but to shun us of points is unfair.

Made a reservation months in advance due to so many recommendations back home by previous patrons. Sat down to a table with a lovely note wishing us a happy honeymoon! The service was incredible and extremely informative. Food was decadent, yet all perfectly done and just enough to fill you up. Loved the entire experience of Mama’s Fish House!

My daughter and I enjoyed the meal. I just personally felt the prices were a bit steep for what you received. We went because it’s talked about by everyone who’s gone to Hawaii but I won’t return next visit to Maui.
The server and bartenders were SENSATIONAL!!! Drinks were absolutely delicious too!

This place is amazing! I was thoroughly impressed with the wood work from the benches, ceiling, and the "canoe" room. We were a little early for our seating (it's worth it to get there early to see the sunset and to get a drink at the bar), so we sat at the bar. I had tried a drink which was good but it wasn't what I usually get. The bartender read my expression and happily made me another drink! We were impressed with the service and especially the food. We had the Wonton shrimp, crab cakes for appetizers. Mahi Mahi stuffed with crab and lobster (a must to get) and the lobster tail. We couldn't have dessert we were stuffed, but looking at the other tables, they looked amazing.

The ambiance is like no other with oceanfront views and the food was good but not to die for and not worth the price. The food options are also somewhat limited. It was our honeymoon and we heard many things about this place so wanted to check it out for ourselves. Worth the experience so recommend checking it out but once is probably good enough. The MahiMahi stuffed with lobster and crab was our favorite.
