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 handmade tapa print cloths cover the tables. Open air dining is equally exciting, and everyone enjoys watching the windsurfers performing offshore.

The service was amazing my drink was never empty. We received our food pretty quickly. I was bummed because they have limited menu due to COVID so my favorite entree wasn’t on the menu. But our party of 4 loved the fresh fish they ordered. The desserts were also great. There wasn’t much of a description so when it came out with walnuts ( nut allergy) we had to do so
trading at our table. The views were amazing !

The food at Mama’s was definitely the best ww had all week!! So very good! Expensive but worth it. We had an appetizer, two entrees, two add-ons, two desserts and a bottle of champagne and it was all first rate. Make reservations early - they book out over a month in advance!

When we heard Mama’s was reopening we jumped on a reservation. Knowing the limited capacity it is an even harder table to get.

Dinner, as always, was perfect. We will be back for our January anniversary and February birthday.

It's not easy getting in here...especially in the pandemic. But we kept plugging away at it during our 6 day stay, and one night we found an 8:45 spot!! There's nothing, and I mean nothing negative to say about this iconic restaurant. From the dreamy trails which parade you past the entire front face of the building, to the gorgeous hardwood décor/design, to the well-versed server, to the drinks, to food, to dessert....NOTHING even got close to being average.

Easily a Top 10 lifetime restaurant, probably even Top 5...seriously. I so very much hope to return to this place again someday.

This was the best dining experience I had on Maui. We were celebrating my parents’ anniversary and the restaurant made it so special. The waitress gave us suggestions for cocktails, appetizers, meals, and desserts and her suggestions all turned out great! The view was amazing. It was pouring rain and the view was still stunning. Overall, this is probably the best restaurant in the world. Just make sure to make a reservation!

This place is pure magic! The flowers, the lighting, the architecture, the interior decor, the wait staff attire, the music, the service, the causal elegance, the food, the wine, the cocktails, the collectible art, the overall ambiance, the private beach, the open air dining.....I could go on and on but the truth is, it’s EVERYTHING!! You have to experience it to truly believe it. This is no exaggeration. Mamas has a huge reputation, yes. I’ve been here several times, yes. However, every single time we come here, it never fails to delight and dazzle! I LOVE this place as does everyone who has ever set foot here.
We are yet again thankful for another stunning evening in this magical world of mamas fish house! Please do not change a thing. It’s perfection.
We will be back!!!

Mama's is always a God send, but even more so in this COVID era. The tables are all socially distanced, so it makes for an even calmer, more incredible dining experience. Service was, per usual, incredible and my server was so friendly and personable. The food was as delicious. Parking is currently self-parking (no valet) due to COVID. THANK YOU Mama's for being open and still be the same awesome dining experience.

Mama’s is my favorite restaurant anywhere. It is very expensive, but the food is delicious, the service excellent and the ambience is unbeatable, from the art to the flower arrangements to the gorgeous wood walls. The Kuau chocolate pie melts in your mouth. We always make a point of coming to Mama’s whenever we are on Maui. I am already looking forward to our next trip here!
