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.

*** As mandated by the County of Maui, all patrons 12 years old and older must be fully vaccinated or have a negative COVID test within 48 hours to dine at Mama's Fish House. Must show proof AND government or student issued ID upon entry.

The safety & well-being of our staff, guests, and each and every member of our Maui community is of the utmost importance to us. We have implemented new health and safety protocols that go above and beyond our already strict standards. We look forward to serving you with safety and Aloha!

My husband and I were in Maui on our Honeymoon and heard Mama’s Fish House was a restaurant we HAD to go to if we could get a reservation. I was able to set an alert up through OpenTable to let me know if any reservations opened up during the time we would be in Maui. I was so happy we finally got an alert and have a reservation booked.

When we arrived to our table, staff had a very nice note on the table congratulated us on our honeymoon and welcoming us to the restaurant. The staff was extremely attentive and kind to us. The food was amazing and I had the best lobster tails I’ve ever had!

The food, drinks and experience are certainly worth the price. Highly recommend!

From start to finish our experience at Mama’s was everything we hoped for and more. The restaurant itself is beautiful, situated right on a beautiful beach, with curated landscaping making it the cherry on top. I’ve never felt more welcomed and cared for by wait staff, thank you Dominic! Last and especially not least, the food was phenomenal and worth every penny! Will definitely be back!

We had a party of 8 and the service couldn't have been better. The food was amazing as always, every single thing that came out of the kitchen was incredible. The server was knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. And of course the setting is hard to beat. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Mama's and can't wait to return.

Wonderful 40th Anniversary lunch. Creative cocktails, loved the octopus & the fish curry. Then they offered us dessert: delicate lovely flavours.
Plus the view is great, & the restaurant itself looks wonderful. Beautiful woods, beautifully decorated.
Really lives up to its reputation.

Excellent as always, although waitress was not very engaged,
Which was unusual at Mama’s. No bad or a problem, just seemed preoccupied.

We Love Mama's. We came for our 46th anniversary while visiting our daughter. at the last minute, we had to change our reservation, which we had made many months before. We we told that we would have to be further back from the water since all the tables were booked in the front. Yet, when we arrived, we were given a great table in the front looking out to the beach. Your staff is excellent, as always. And the food, always amazing. Thank You.

We had a wonderful time at Mama's Fish House. We felt attended to, yet not constantly bothered. The food was excellent and the ambiance was quaint. Beachside supperclub dining was the perfect experience for our trip to Maui.

My wife and I spent our 40th anniversary at Mama’s and had a wonderful experience. Marcus, our waiter, attended to our every need and made it an enjoyable day for both of us. We planned the trip to Mama’s as a return stop from our road to Hana drive, and we were early for our reservation. They we’re able the get us in fairly quickly. I highly recommend Mama’s if you can get a reservation. Book early!

2nd time here - even more incredible than our first meal, if that’s even possible.

Drinks: can’t recall the name but had an awesome guava + gin cocktail in a martini glass. Brother loved his too. Other members of the party had a lava flow and a virgin mojito with mango - both great!

Appetizers: macadamia crusted crab cakes were phenomenal. Also ordered the seared beef in papaya which was very good. Freebie bread was good, but the asparagus bisque shooter was my favorite pre meal taste by far!

Dinner: had the fish curry (which I also ordered last time) and it is in. cred. ib. le. In freakin’ credible. Everyone tasted and loved it. It’s just absurdly good. Others had the ahi (huge hit) filet (also a huge hit) and the prawns (which were liked but, I quote, “didn’t blow me away”). The fish curry absolutely rules/slaps/will blow your socks off - pick an adjective.

Dessert: the highlight of the night. Last time we went too hard on appetizers and were too full for dessert. NOT THIS TIME! The Polynesian pearl was loved by absolutely everyone at the table but the chocolate pie was my personal favorite. One of the best crusts I’ve ever had, and I’m a self proclaimed pie connoisseur.

The service: absolutely impeccable. Felt like there was an entire team of people there who were predictive of our every need, whether we needed water top offs, more bread, another round of drinks, or just a check in. At one point we stepped outside to take photos and came back to find all of our napkins re-folded and our wine glasses covered with coasters to prevent any bugs from getting in. Just awesome warm, friendly, efficient service from everyone.

It’s definitely a pricy night out but the food, ambiance, and experience are second to none. We’ll worth it for a special occasion!

Been to Mama’s about 10 times. Although great food, it’s very robotic. I know exactly what to expect. Need more variety.
