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!

    All the staff are super friendly. Our server Gill, was great! Slightly over priced in my opinion based on other meals that we had during our time at Maui. But was really happy to do it that one time, because the ambience, and the food were top notch.

    Among the finest on Maui. Expensive for sure. But the food, drinks, service and setting can’t be beat. We just know it will be a pricey dinner but once in a while it’s worth it

    They know how to make a meal special. I had the macadamia nut crusted Maui Maui with lobster on top. It was amazing. My husband had the crab luau soup and crab cakes. He shared some of my meal as well. The setting is beautiful.

    We had an amazing meal! The restaurant and view are gorgeous. The food was so fresh and delicious. The hostess Brittany was welcoming and kind, and our waitress Jessica was great. She guided us through the drink and food options and made sure I felt special while celebrating my birthday. Thank you!

    We dined at Mama’s for lunch on our babymoon and it was the best meal we had on Maui! The food was amazing (amuse bouche, bread, and the Bouillabaisse), service impeccable, and the most relaxing ambiance!

    If you can't book in advance, get on the cancellation list and watch for alerts. We ended up getting an 11:15am reservation (hoping for dinner, but would take what we could get) and t was absolutely delicious. Our server Desmond was extremely knowledgeable about the menu and made some great recommendations. Honestly, I don't think there was a bad choice to be made. Appetizers, Entrees and Desserts were perfectly spaced out. Never felt rushed. Come hungry as you will leave full. Can't wait to go back again.

    It’s really hard to get in to this place. 5 month wait list. We lucked out due to good timing and a cancellation. Upon arrived were blown away with the location and scenery. The restaurant is huge. Mama’s doing well. The service is impeccable. The fish was swimming in the sea that morning. Although quite pricey the meal was worth it. I had the Macadamia Nut Mahi with Lobster. Wife had the beef filet and our friends had the Ono. We all thoroughly enjoyed our meals and the excellent service. The dessert alone is worth the 5 month waitlist. We had the banana crunch. It did not disappoint. If u can get in to Mama’s I highly suggest it. Good luck.

    Everything (food, ambiance) was great. My biggest critique was our server. She came across as indifferent and seemed annoyed by our questions. We have dined at Mama’s before and had excellent service; unfortunately tonight was a different story.

    This was without a doubt the greatest meal I have ever had. I ordered the bouillabaise and the presentation and flavours left me speechless. The servers were incredible, friendly and helpful and to top it off we got to see sea turtles on the beach after our meal. We had all age levels in our group and everyone left with a full belly. I made the reservation 6 months in advance and it was well worth the wait.

    We never come to Maui without coming to Mama’s! The restaurant is so well designed in keeping with Hawaiian traditions and the food is fantastic. Our server, Jessie, was great & the setting could not be more perfect. You’d think it would have to succumb to a touristy feel but it somehow escapes. So hard to get in but for us persistence has always prevailed.

    We have been coming to Mama’s for decade, but yesterday was the best ever! The four of us all ordered different items—and all were outstanding. I had both Ahi sashimi and entree and both were lifetime bests. Our waitress Becky completed the outstanding experience.

    The food was outstanding, especially the onaga and mahi mahi entrees. However, compared to our first visit last year, the service was noticeably less timely. The staff were friendly and professional and we enjoyed our experience, but not as much so as our previous visit.

    We had Mama’s on a Monday evening to celebrate our honeymoon and had a great experience. The food was incredible, drinks were great, service and the overall experience was lovely. I was extremely grateful that we never once felt rushed. When you splurge on a place like Mama’s, the last thing you want is to feel like you are getting serviced as quickly as possible just to move on to the next table and thankfully that wasn’t the case. It was a very relaxing and enjoyable night!
