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.

Great food and flavours , nice setting.
Stuffed fish , a must have!
Only criticism would be no gap between courses, literally finished starters then main meal arrived as they cleared starter plates.
Was busy with people waiting for tables so assume they wanted us to eat fairly quickly and finish so they could seat other customers.
Will definitely go again, lots of other items to try in the menu.

My wife and I chose this place based off of recommendations from family for our honeymoon. The fish was very fresh, the staff was very friendly, food portions were average but price point was a bit high. However, we were seated at a window table overlooking the beach and ocean. Would definitely return again.

We came here for our 5 year wedding anniversary. They welcomed us with a ocean view and a personalized note congratulating us on our anniversary.

The service, food, ambiance were all on point. Our server was very helpful and accommodating. They even gave my husband a lei to give to me.

The meal was delicious and we look forward to coming back again on our next visit to Maui.

Mama’s has been hit or miss over the past several visits. Our waiter (Marcus) was too much talk and short on good service. He would disappear for long periods and stop by other tables and talk extensively.

55 minutes for salads to arrive and 80+ minutes for entrees. We would have stayed for dessert and coffee, but were afraid that would take another hour and daylight was fading fast.

The entrees and appetizer were great, but the salads had basically no taste at all. Very stingy with balsamic vinegar.

This was our most exciting meal we were looking forward to sharing together for my wife and I during our time in Maui.
I mean, this place had valets to park your car for you and that is the first thing you experience when you arrive. You walk through a beautiful cove with big waves and a nice beach before being seated. We were sat next to the windows with a spectacular view and our server William was very helpful in choosing what to eat. My wife and I shared the steak papaya appetizer and we had kanpachi and uku for our meal. Both of which were amazing and cooked perfectly.
The bathrooms smelled great, the drinks were gigantic, and the atmosphere was relatively quiet considering there was over 100 people seated at one time.
This is a once in a lifetime meal and venue. It’ll cost a lot but it was phenomenal and unforgettable.

Amazing experience from start to finish! Excellent atmosphere - old Hawaii feel, beautiful setting with stunning scenery. Waitress and all staff were fabulous. Extremely family friendly and so helpful with the toddler and teething infant in our party. Every one loved their food, drinks, appetizers and desserts - grilled fish kids meal was a big hit! Were told it was a must do by everyone we talked to and they were right. Plan your visit to allow for extra time before and after your meal. ❤️

Amazing and delicious! Panang Curry Dish and the Banana Macadamia Nut Crisp dessert were two of the best things I’ve ever eaten. Sashimi was also insane. Service was excellent. I’ll be dreaming of these dishes! Highly recommend-definitely lived up to the hype.

My husband and I had a fabulous lunch at Mama's Fish House. Our server Jessica W. was terrific and explained the differences between the fish options. We started with the shrimp won tons which were excellent. I had the lobster and crab stuffed Mahi Mahi and my husband had the Uku. Both dishes tasted fantastic and we would highly recommend them to anyone eating at Mama's Fish House. For dessert, we had the Banana Crisp and the Kuau Chocolate Pie. This restaurant is the best in Maui. The ocean views, great decor, fabulous food, and terrific service make it a special treat for anyone. We will return on our next visit to Maui and would highly recommend to all. Thanks for a great experience!

The quality of the food was superb. The place is pretty pricey but I rather eat at Mama’s fish house than any luau. If it’s in your budget you have to experience the place. When I return Maui I will also return to Mama’s Fish House. Excellent food, and great location!

Excellent in all aspects. It is pricey but worth the indulgence. I highly recommend their Pink Hibicus adult beverage. We shared two different fish entrees and both were amazing! We enjoyed the Black pearl dessert also.

Exceptional experience. Went for a family member's birthday and the table had a birthday greeting from the restaurant at the table when we arrived. Fresh fish was so deliciously prepared. Our server, Jeff, was knowledgable and friendly. We eat here every time we're on Maui.

On both trips to Hawaii, we visited Mama's Fish House. We couldn’t love eating here more! The service is always spectacular as is the food. The location is to die-for – that view! Our server was so helpful and well-aware of both the food offerings (he made suggestions where we asked) and also about Hawaiian culture. He encouraged us to try local Hawaiian ‘Poi’ – it’s interesting! Coming to Mama’s is an experience; it’s so much more than just a meal. We came for our anniversary and I was gifted a lei and the house staff had put out a welcome card on our table congratulating us one our anniversary. It’s the little details that make this place so special, like beautiful local flowers and tasteful Hawaiian sculptures and art which when married with beautiful ambiance and gorgeous looking and tasting food, makes it so worth the trip. I hope all Maui visitors get a chance to experience this wonderful spot!

Although it’s pricey, it’s as good of fish as I’ve ever had. Everything was over the top. Fish is local from the night before and their sustainability story is remarkable. Views and the beautiful interior woodwork are fantastic.

The food and service were outstanding. The setting is fantastic. It is expensive, but worth it for a splurge. Book early (like weeks/months in advance) because they book up.

Mama’s is an experience worth having.
The setting is wonderful, especially if you land a front row table to the courtyard.
The staff is friendly and efficient, it is a large well run restaurant, making the quality of the food that much more impressive.
We had really lovely Kanpachi and Opakapaka for lunch.
The cost is high, but understandable for the location, demand, and quality.
An island icon that is worth a visit.
