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.

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!

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.

Amazing food...the best we had in Maui!! Service was perfect. Server was extremely knowledgeable about the menu and gave very good recommendations. With that said, it's expensive! Perfect for a special occasion or a big treat while on vacation, but be prepared for the bill.

Absolutely fantastic experience. I have been told by many people to come here and I was not disappointed. It was hard to decide what to eat because the entire menu looked scrumptious. Will come back again without a doubt!

This was our 6th. Is it to Mama’s, the service is beyond good, the food always delightful and enjoyable. We prefer lunch and th3 large selection of tapas, this visit the seared beef and crab cakes were excellent and the tomato ginger bisque was wonderful.

Imagine sitting in a restaurant that looks like it was built by Swiss Family Robinson located on a beautiful beach while eating the best food you’ve ever tasted and sipping on an authentic hand-crafted mai tai and watching strikingly beautiful blue waves. The service was above and beyond. This is truly my favorite restaurant anywhere. I cannot wait to return!

Oh, and most of the menu just happens to be naturally gluten-free.

Though nice dining, everything was way overpriced. We got the lunch portions of stuffed Mahi-mahi and Penang curry fresh fish - at $60 an entree with moderate/small sizes it just wasn’t worth it! And our server, Lacey, seemed more interested in making a big tip than in customer service. Even though our lunch bill with appetizers, sides, drinks and dessert was well over $200, she seemed to insinuate that we weren’t spending enough, which wasn’t appreciated. All in all, we had higher expectations and will not be recommending to our friends.

Truly one of the best meals I've ever had. Each bite was perfect. They went above and beyond to help me with a safe meal due to an allergy. Even dining alone I felt entirely welcome and appreciated. The grounds are lovely, for wandering after your meal.

The food at Mamas is always delicious. The issue we have with the restaurant is the long wait even with a reservation. Also, there are some tables right in the main thoroughfare that we seem to be seated at frequently. On this ocassion I specifically asked not to be seated at that table. We were graciously accommodated and had a window seat. Our waitress was simply missing in action. We just never saw her afterwe ordered. I guess she was busy?

Absolute must do when visiting Maui. No bargains here but forego your daily coffee habit for a couple of months and go! It’s worth it. You will have an unforgettable meal! Everything on the menu is outstanding. Skip the mai tai and have the hibiscus punch if you are looking for a sweet cocktail. Try the fried shrimp wontons. Sashimi is wonderful....enjoy it in the order the server recommends. Stuffed mahi mahi is amazing. Save a little room for dessert. Truly a meal to remember. We always look forward to a return visit!!!

Service was fantastic, our waitress helped us really understand all the different options on the menu since we weren’t especially familiar with the types of fish/dishes. We were seated in an excellent spot facing the beach so it was fun to see people come and go. I cannot rave about the food, except for the mail dish that my husband got. By far the best fish we have eaten. It was mahi stuffed with crab and also some lobster. Quite an experience all the way around!

Mama’s Fish House was Stellar❕My husband and I were celebrating 10 years of marriage and Mama’s made us feel very special. I was given a lovely lei with tuberose which smelled like heaven. We had the spectacular Bouillabaisse and the best sashimi we have ever had. Our server Aaron was Excellent. He was extremely knowledgeable, warm and attentive. Wine service was seamless. The Kuau Chocolate Pie was pure decadence. We long to return to this lovely establishment.

this was our first time to Mama's Fish house, I was a bit concerned since the prices are quite steep per plate.
However, I must admit, we didn't regret coming here.
Everything from the food, service, ambiance and ocean breeze was perfect!
Special shout to our server that night Spin, she was friendly, attentive , knowledgeable and fun!
We loved every single dish and this was by far the best food we have ever had. Fish cooked to perfection, our raw kampachi starter was to die for and Black pearl dessert with passion fruit mousse was simply amazing!
Would come back here in a heart beat! Thank you!

Mama's is rated as one of the top 2 or 3 restaurants on Maui by all of the various guides. In our experience it more than lived up to its reputation. A real highlight of our trip.
