Fish
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.

One of the best meals we have ever had! Mama’s is quintessential Aloha, the servers are highly professional, and the menu is second to none. We have dined all over the world, and Mama’s is at the top of the list.

Have the Antarctic Toothfish!

Went here while we were on our honeymoon since everyone recommended it - all of them were right! Food is outstanding, service is great and drinks are on point. Would love to come here again if we’re ever in Maui, definitely worth it!

Awesome restaurant to experience the best tasting island fish on the Maui. It's not cheap but it is a truly unique experience and one that you will remember for the rest of your life.

Everything from the appetizers, entrées, and dessert was delicious!
Came here for our anniversary getaway to Maui. Luckily got reservations and we have no regrets including this place as one of our anniversary memories! There was a very nice anniversary greeting card at our table that added a thoughtful touch! We had the shrimp wontons and crab cakes for apps. The the stuffed Mahi with lobster and the opakapaka for our mains. Finished with a comp anniversary tart and we added the banana crisp with ice cream to top it all off. All very delectable! Mahalo to our wonderful server Eric and all the staff who greeted us in!!

Jeff was our server and he was very friendly and attentive. The food was some of the best we have ever had. Make sure to get the venison appetizer in the papaya! We would have been happy just getting three of those! We made our reservation a year in advance and it was well worth the wait. We can’t wait to go back. The banana crisp was incredible as well!

This was our second time.at Mama's and we think this will be a staple stop any time we come to Maui (as long as reservations are available). They seafood is excellent and fresh and the restaurant atmosphere as an upscale kind of sea cabin on a beach is worth the experience even without the food.

What a wonderful way to spend my wife's birthday and Thanksgiving with the family! Gil provided wonderful and attentive service and the food, as usual, was magnificent! The appetizers including the seared Ahi Tuna, and main courses of Mahi Mahi, Lobster Tail, Blue Shrimp, Ribe Eye, and Vegetables were flavorful and prepared so well! The ambience, even at night, was beautiful and so warm and welcoming. We look forward to coming to Mama's again!

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.
