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!

20 minutes after landing we got a notification that there was an opening and we couldn’t have been happier. We got a great table with an amazing view and the food was delicious.

Great food, views, and service. We were here for our anniversary and brought some friends. This place did not disappoint! The octopus appetizer was fantastic, and I really enjoyed my fish curry (mahi-mahi, ahi and Hawaiian kanpachi/amberjack in Panang curry). If you're going with a group, make sure everyone is good with the pricing and food options. If there are kids that don't appreciate good adult food, leave them at home! Same thing for adults.. Would definitely come back and recommend this spot!

Best meal, view and service we had on the island. The lobster and crab coconut soup was to die for! We had the crab cakes, opakapaka and stuffed mahi mahi as well. All were delicious. Highly recommend. Must reserve months in advance.

Mama’s fish house is just out of this world! The location is spectacular and the menu outstanding. Definitely not for everyday dining. Dining at Mama’s fish house is truly an event one won’t forget. Our server Alexa was very knowledgeable about all the items on the menu and did answer all our questions. Her recommendations were spot on. The food is beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. We had the daily special appetizer, which was octopus, and fresh tuna to start with, then the fish curry and the bouillabaisse. For dessert we ordered the Polynesian black Pearl and the Hana banana crisp. Everything was fantastic. Bring plenty of time and company who appreciate high standard service and food! Dining here is a feast for the senses and you want to focus on that. Also I would recommend to get familiar with the history of Mama’s Fish House, it made our evening there even more special.

We’ve been enjoying Mama’s since 1976. We consider the Mahi Mahi stuffed with lobster and crab their signature dish and always order it. Last night I ventured out with the opakapaka sautéed with garlic, capers and wine. It was spectacular. I’ve come to the conclusion that you can’t make a wrong decision at Mama’s.

Our server was Stephanie, she was awesome. The way she shared the special, the “grilled octopus” she made it sounds so good, that we ordered that dish. She checked on us a few times if we were okay. As Kamaaina, it was great to check it out.
The restaurant is beautiful with koa wood and the signature flower arrangements is so beautiful.

If you are looking for a restaurant with amazing fish and seafood options, this is the place. Amazing selection and wonderful food. We had the crab cakes, shrimp wontons, and octopus for appetizers. For lunch we tried the blue prawns, short ribs with lobster tail, bouillabaisse and the mahi-mahi stuffed with crab and lobster. One of the best restaurants I have ever been to. Highly recommend

This is a must when in Maui. It’s a bit on the expensive side but the quality of the food is excellent. The three of us gals split three appetizers, salad and one entree. Two of us had the specialty drinks and ended with the ‘absolute must’ lilikoi creme brûlée which will spoil you for any other creme brûlée. Not to mention the view and the excellent service. Just do it…..
