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.

A mixed bag. Beautiful setting. Quite expensive and even more so since it was 50/50 hit or miss. The gratis amuse was an amazing ginger tomato soup so things looked promising. Coconut ceviche app was delicious. The recommended ahi was seriously over cooked and tough and dry. The lobster stuffed fish w macadamia crust was very tasty. The 3 sides you could get: poi, kalua pig and curry octopus were just fair.
Service started out bright but then big lags in food showing up. Server never asked how the food was when he saw that ahi uneaten.
So I’d go for a drink and an app but it’s so hyped you need reservations well in advance. Not really worth it for the price and inconsistency of food. Despite the gorgeous setting.

Been to Mamas every time we visit the island. Everything is wonderful. The stuffed fish is my favorite and like nothing you get anywhere. The only problem we ever had occurred on this visit. There was a huge gap between the salad and the main course. The manager came over on his own, apologized and comped us on the deserts. Nice touch. The decor is incredible - actually beyond belief. Hand carved wood and incredible details all over the place. Flowers are delivered daily by an outfit that only works with them.

This place is a must when you visit Maui. Reserve a month ahead.

Heard about it online. Made reservations the day before. The service is remarkable. Everyone is kind, helpful and warm. We had amazing table, I assume because we told them it was our 20th wedding anniversary but it was probably the best table in the house. Open air windows out to a million dollar view. Our waiter checked on us every few minutes, gave amazing suggestions and never let our water or drinks empty. The food is “lick the plate”delicious. Definitely will return.

The food was wonderful. Generous portions, hot, beautiful presentation. Our server, Jennifer, was fun, informative, and did not try to up-sell. Her timing was perfect. We will definitely be returning on our next trip to Maui! The scenery at Moma’s was gorgeous.

One of the twin lobster tails were under-cooked. At $85 shouldn’t need to send back to the kitchen. Meal I’m general was overpriced. Food was very good but not spectacular, which is what we had been led to expect.

Yes, Mama's place really setup us up for our 30th Anniversary on May 14th. Waitress was promt and attentive and reservation was right on schedule. The manager welcomed introduced himself, the explained the meaning and ritual for Hawaiian Lei. He presented me with a beautiful hand woven freash flower Lei to place upon my wife. This was not expected and was very special!!!
We were setup with the best view of the ocean, and took pictures with sea turtles and palm trees.

Thanks to all for great food, great service and a memory that will last for ever of our Anniversary.
Will definitly return on next trip to Maui!!!

Had a table reservation, but chose to sit at the bar. Unsurpassed service from bartender, Michael and bar back, Jordan. We went with all of their recommendations from appetizers through to desserts and all dishes were superb! Ambiance and attention to detail, not to mention a phenomenal location make this a five star dining experience. I envy the owners who I hear dine here twice daily—how amazing it must be to own one of the finest restaurants not just in the Hawaiian Islands, but in the world!

What a great setting and wonderful experience! Waiter was very helpful on wine and fish selections, service was top notch. Had been trying to visit Mama"s last trip to Maui, but was completely booked, make reservations well in advance. Definitely worth the drive from Kapalua.

Our 6th time returning to Mama s over the last visits to Maui. Always a favorite, with awesome building and decor. Meal selections not as good as some other times but overall very happy. Great service and atmosphere , though young child next table out of control and parents didn't seem to care. Kinda spoiled an otherwise perfect dinner.

Mamas is all about the experience. Everything is so amazing about this place. the location is perfect, the ambiance is so vibrant and the food and service is outstanding.
They value their customers and it is very evident from the way they treat you while you are there. The food is simply one of the best we have ever tried.
It is a must visit when in Maui.

Folks on Maui are crazy about Mama's Fish House. It's the best place on the island to eat. The setting is rich with Hawaiian beauty of soft breezes from large open windows, a perfect beach within view, and enormous coconut palms that sway. Food is scrumptious. Island fishermen sell their fresh catch to Mama's and it's offered to guests that evening with the fisherman's name alongside. The cocktails are beautiful and delicious. Servers are attentive and add their touch to the ambience of Hawaiian benevolence and good will. Celebrate a special occasion there and you will be treated to feeling very special. Valets park your car carefully and promptly return it when you through. Don't forget a nice tip for them.
