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.

After visiting Maui for over 20 years we finally made the pilgrimage to Mamas tonight. Amazing ambience in a magical location. The Mai Tai lived up to its billing. Beautiful table, fantastic food and lovely service....for a while. As restaurant owners and having worked in every restaurant position, we know all too well when a server gets slammed. It happens. Then some servers get real and others move on thinking the bigger tip is coming from the next big table. As guests and patrons we’ve all felt the server leave us. Avoiding eye contact, ceasing conversation. We sense their embarrassment and recognize they would rather we leave than make an honest apology. One we would embrace and reward. So after a night that started like magic, we left not quite knowing how to tip a $335 bill. A sad but completely avoidable situation. This is not a negative review but an honest attempt to help management enable the occasional harried team member to embrace the establishments culture of aloha and ohana.

Kind Regards,
Steve and Patti Davidson.

We celebrated our anniversary at Mama’s, and they did it right! They called to confirm our reservations, asked about food allergies and the spelling of our names. The shrimp won ton appetizers were delicious, along with the coconut cake and prawns. The view was spectacular and a perfect place for pictures.

It is extremely expensive. The food was a solid OK for the price. I had the Bouillabaisse, which was fantastic. My husband had Mama’s stuffed fish and he was disappointed. If you want to drop $300 on some pretty good/decent food with an amazing food, then go for it!

This was the best dinning experience we have ever had. The backdrop, the service, the food and the overall experience is 5 stars! It feels like one of those experiences that if you go to Maui and have never stopped here than you have not truly experienced Maui.

Celebrated my husband’s birthday with a party of 6. Five of us had the macadamia crusted mahi mahi stuffed with crab and lobster — absolutely delicious! Our son had the braised short ribs and loved them. We shared the Black Pearl and lilikoi creme brûlée for dessert and they were a very special end to an excellent meal. The service was very good as well. We highly recommend Mama’s Fish House any time you visit Maui!

The food was outstanding, and we were in awe at how the crew is able to deliver this quality on a continuous basis. The restaurant is huge and while it is pretty it is far from an intimate setting, the throughput of people is tremendous and the prices seriously steep.

Great view and fantastic service. We come every year but the food was as special as it usually is.

The prices are through the roof. $20 for a Mai Tai, $18 for a salad and over $60 for the main course. You will need to reserve weeks in advance.

Everything was wonderful, from the moment we arrived to free valet... to a finish with cold towels after a delightful meal. Every detail is made to feel effortless thanks to an incredible attention to the nuance behind the scenes. Each dish was delicious, and every member of the staff was warm and genuine. I’m on Maui multiple times a year and can’t believe I waited this long, a must-go for everyone.

Our visit to Mama’s was a delicious delight. The aromas that welcomed us are still in my mind. We truly enjoyed everything Mama's offered. Our server- Jeff was the BEST- friendly, attentive, helpful- the perfect addition to a memorable evening. We will return on our next Maui visit.

Food exceeded our expectations!! Everything was perfectly cooked. Expensive but considering it’s a not to miss occasion one time in Maui it was awesome!! Be sure to make reservations months in advance or you will be disappointed thinking you can just show up.

A must when you are in Maui! The scenery, ambiance and service is unbelievable! The food is also delicious. It’s an open air restaurant so it can get a little warm if the breeze settles down.

We have had Mamas on our to do list for years and are glad we were able to pull it off this year. The facility is beautiful and service is amazing. Luckily my husband and I are eating less these days so between us we had 1 appetizer - crab cakes, 1 soup - Maui onion (his entree) and 1 regular entree - grilled ahi. All the selections were prepared beautifully and we loved the taste of everything. Mamas is very pricey but doable if you don’t go crazy on drinks and appetizers. We’d go back again because it was soo good.

The reputation of Mama's is well deserved, one of the finest restaurants in the United States and the best fish house I have experienced anywhere in the world. The ambiance is amazing, what a beautiful ocean setting, picturesque by any standard. The fish, and we tried 4 different entrees, was the best ever. Fish from the boat to your table in the shortest time possible. Preparations and cooking just excellent. We enjoyed the fish collar appetizer, their signature stuffed red snapper with exotic lobster from the middle of the Pacific and the best of all, the Amber Jack tuna. Each fish was lightly breaded with a panic crust and cooked to perfection, medium rare in the center. Although the cost brought a tear to the eye, it was well worth a blow-out lunch to go enjoy a special restaurant.

Everything here was great! Food, service and ambiance were everything we were looking for. Highly knowledgeable server walked us through the menu and gave excellent recommendations. Fresh fish caught daily so menu changes frequently. Highly recommend going here even if it is a little pricier than you planned on.

Hands down this was the BEST meal we had on our trip to Maui or any other place as far as that goes! We have a favorite restaurant in any town we visit but this place rates way above every restaurant we have had the pleasure of dining at. The stuffed fish entree was over the top delicious along with the Mahi Mahi Rolls and Shrimp Won Ton appetizers. Did not think things could get any better until we finished our meal with the Coconut Chiffon Cake (WOW). This restaurant is a MUST for anyone visiting Maui!! Our son is going to Maui in March 2020 for his honeymoon and as a surprise we are purchasing them a gift card to Mama's Fish House. The only negative is that you must know way in advance about this fabulous place in order to get a reservation. CAN'T wait to return, next time we visit Maui we will make sure to eat here more than once so we can try some of their other fabulous dishes!!
