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!

    Rude Hostess (mature Asian woman) upon arrival demanding I use Valet parking. Been here many times before and never was an issue before. Meal took a while to come out after appetizers, but not a big deal.

    Did not think that Mama's would live up to all the hype! But, it exceeded our expectations completely. Wow, we are hard to please since we are from New Orleans, and food there is exceptional. Honestly, we are very hard to please, but it was an all around incredibly delicious experience. Already booking for next year!

    Very beautiful location right in the beach, surrounded by palm trees. The restaurant itself is spectacular with a traditional Hawaiian vibe. The cocktails were pretty standard, service was excellent although slow. I ordered the scallops with mushroom risotto - the scallops were fantastic, fresh, and perfectly done. The mushroom risotto was not great, it was over cooked and bland with no flavor. I’ve definitely had better mushroom risotto elsewhere. For dessert we ordered the lilikoi crème brulee which was outstanding. Overall it was a great experience and outstanding location, although I wouldn’t say that the food and drinks were the best I’ve ever had.

    The ambiance was beautiful. They had a personalized card at our table. My main dish was magnificent and a lot of food. My husband’s however was on the small side and lacked flavor. They treated us to a delicious dessert in honor of our anniversary which was nice.Totally worth the experience!

    The view, food, ambience and service are always superb at Mama's. It was our youngest child's graduation from college, and we were treated with wonderful service from the moment we stepped onto the property. As always, the food was 5 star. Our servers were very attentive and cheerful. We never waited for anything. The fish was extremely fresh and delicious. And our graduate is a vegetarian and she loved her tofu banana curry dish. My filet was one of the best I've ever tasted. The dessert and coffee experience was the best! We all shared the Lilikoi creme bruele and the pearl was perfection. Thank you for making our experience absolute culinary perfection!

    Beautiful ambiance and excellent service -Valet parking -Had to wait 20 minutes to be seated even though we checked In 10 minutes early and had a 1130 reservation -best seat at a round table by an open window to see the ocean -was greeted with a happy birthday card for my son’s birthday -our waiter was the best , unfortunately forgot his name -food was mediocre but beautiful plating -whole brunch/lunch took about 4 hours. You’re not rushed, appetizers and entrees and desserts/coffee are spaced out enough so you don’t feel overly stuffed Definitely a must visit at least once in your lifetime. Orders can add up in price quickly. Splurge for a special occasion:)
