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

Mama's Fish House Ratings and Reviews
Great place, the service and the food was very good for the most part. The $25 crab cakes were not good. The $23 Ketel One Martini seemed a bit excessive. Pricing in general was out of whack. $18 for a little bit of Romaine lettuce and a few crumbles of blue cheese. Fish was delicious but be prepared to pay outrageous prices. Overall fun experience.
We have eaten at Mama’s on several previous occasions, hosting large parties there on two occasions. This time, we waited quite a while for a table, despite our reservation. We had a good dinner, but it wasn’t any better than another fish restaurant that we’ve frequented. We lamented that we could have eaten 5 nights at the latter restaurant for what we spent at Mama’s.
Our first time and honeymoon on Maui and Mama’s Fish House was by far our favorite meal! From start to finish..the location, service, and food was amazing. Worth every penny! Next time, We would definitely skip all the other restaurants and come here more than once!
Beautiful setting, absolutely romantic. Food is beautifully prepared and delicious; the wine list has great offerings at reasonable prices. Menu might seem a bit expensive but the incredible details provided give extra value. Would definitely return and recommend this restaurant!
Mama's Fish House is always a wonderful experience, but prices have steadily climbed since we've been eating here the past seven years. Once or twice is great for the experience. It has become more difficult for us to justify spending over $250 for two to dine even though the food is great and the setting amazing.
Mama’s is the quintessential Hawaiian restaurant. Nestled on a beautiful north shore beach, the ambience is as good as it gets. The service is perfect. You know who caught your fish and where - fresh that morning. Preparation is perfect and beautifully presented. There is a reason it’s one of the top couple of restaurants in the U.S. Make your reservations months in advance and it will be a highlight of your time on Maui.
We arrived early so we could enjoy the beach scenery before being seated. We were seated on time and was pleased that we had the view of the beach. The only ‘complaint’ I have was the noise level of the party of 6 in front of our table. From the time we were directed to our table, to ordering our food, and to getting our meal took about an hour. I think it helped to order our entree at the same time that we ordered our appetizer. On a scale of 1-10, we would give Mama’s Fish House a PLUS-10 for great service, friendliness of the staff, and the quality of the food! We’ve never been disappointed whenever we go there with guests or by ourselves. Another plus are the unique and gorgeous floral arrangements surrounding the restaurant.As a suggestion for future consideration, maybe the women’s restroom could be remodeled to allow more space, especially with the line out the door - a rather tight-squeeze in there. Valet service was also on par! Overall, it was a memorable Valentine’s Day for us!❤️
We have eaten at Mama’s twice in the last two years we have vacationed in Maui and it is an excellent place to dine. The service is very friendly and hospitable and the food although a little pricey is very good as well. What I especially like about it is the view. We have eaten all over the Hawaiian islands and have yet found a view more beautiful than this.
Mama's is a fabulous place for the best seafood dishes. The prices are HIGH for all apps and entrees but the quality can't be beat. The best fish dishes! You must have a reservation as the place is packed. Not a large wine list but all the essentials and plenty of fun cocktails too.
