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 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!

    The food and ambience is out of this world! The restaurant is right on the beach…literally. It is a upscale beach restaurant that is a must go to when you are on Maui. Make sure you make reservations early! I made them 3 months out! I can’t say enough good about this restaurant except for its worth the money! Spurge and go!

    Our second time, with 5 years in between. Used the Open Table Alert system, which was grossly frustrating, but finally got a table for 2, late lunch, and it was worth the wait and even the hassle. A truly fabulous meal with very special ambiance, and Gil, an excellent server.

    We went for our anniversary and I had mentioned that to them while making the reservation. The staff was kind and helpful. Rachel walked us through the menu and suggested vegan options for my husband. They did make a note to not serve him anything with meat in the complementary servings. The food was rich and fresh; and the chocolate pearl topped it all off. Great ambience and location. Totally worth the hype.

    First time going, everything was wonderful! Food and drink were delicious, ambiance was quiet and cozy, all of the staff were so kind and friendly. Jaylen was fantastic; friendly, informative, and so patient with our indecisiveness. Hard to pick what to eat when everything is so tempting! One of the best dining experiences we’ve had, we’ll definitely be returning when possible. :)

    We booked this trip around finding a table for my birthday (six months out). All we can say is it was SO worth it. If you are going to Maui, this is a don’t miss spot - Also, turtles came up on the beach to say hello!

    Our anniversary lunch at Mama’s was much awaited. The ambience was great. We were lucky to get a table opposite to the beach. The food was amazing. Their complimentary mushroom soup was so good. Our appetizer was a deep fry of the days fresh catch which was delicious. Our Mahi-Mahi baked in Kona Lobster and Macadamia nut crust and Mama’s Ahi, Mahi-mahi and Yellow curry were delicious too. The service was great and overall it’s an amazing dining experience.
