About Mama's Fish House
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 tapa print cloths cover the tables. Outdoor dining is equally exciting, and everyone enjoys watching the windsurfers performing offshore.

Mama's Fish House Ratings and Reviews
Overall great restaurant but for the money you paid I would expect exceptional. We were a little disappointed that my meal had to be sent back because it was not even warm. Restaurant made a new dish and removed from the bill. I would go back but bring lots of money.....
Always an outstanding & amazing meal at Mama’s Fish House!
Never miss coming here when on Maui! Food, cocktails, service & ambience excellent! Hawaiian flowers so beautiful!
Pricey but worth the splurge!
Mama’s Stuff Fish so fresh & delicious! Ask for the coconut cake, not on the menu, amazingly light , delicate & so yummy!
Awesome experience! We got the crispy mahi mahi rolls and Mac nut crusted crab cakes for appetizers and split the stuffed mahi so we could have 2 desserts - Black Pearl and lilkoi creme brulee! Food was amazing, ambiance was great, and our server was very friendly! Definitely recommend!!
This place is amazing, but very expensive. For a very special treat or occssion, its worth the high prices. They have fresh caught fish on the menu and even credit and list the fisherman s name. Price around $58. Was not that impressed with Mama salad at $18 and a Maui margarita was $20. A bottle of Italian Pino Grigio was $64. Again overpriced, but wonderful.
Great location and great food. But very very expensive - even compared to high end London restaurants. We are on Maui for four weeks and if the prices were a little lower we would go a few times. But unfortunately it will be just once on this trip.
I think there is a fine line between paying an elevated price for really good food and just feeling ripped off. We went for lunch and it was super casual - for the price I would have preferred it to be a little more formal - to have felt like it was somewhere special.
This is my third visit to this restaurant over the years and the food has always been amazing.
Exceptional dining experience in paradise. The prices are high even for Hawaii, but food quality and experience are well above exceptional. We had the Mama’s stuffed shrimp, the filet and the boullibaise. Phenomenal! Allocate ample time to fully enjoy the experience. This isn’t a spot to stop before your flight unless you have at least 3 hours before you need to be at the airport!
We dine here often and have never had a bad experience from making reservation, getting seated at a timely matter, feeling welcomed and comfortable while we dined and all the way to getting our car from valet! View is spectacular ! The decor is so beautiful ! Food was so ONO! Much Mahalo to the Chef , our waiter and all the Mamas Fish House Ohana for making our experience so special!
We have had 3 exceptionally wonderful dining experiences at Mama’s over the past year, and can say without equivocation that there is no finer place for fish anywhere. The location on Maui’s North Shore, the layout of the dining rooms, the incredible wait staff, and of course the food are all absolutely superb. I don’t mind the expense (and it is expensive) for such fine cuisine and attention that one receives here, and will truly look forward to our next gastronomic adventure there!
This is the restaurant most often recommended by friends or acquaintances who have visited Maui. The food was very good, as well as the service, but really it had the feel of a “tourist trap.” Very high priced (~$150 per person) with customers packed in like sardines and quite noisy. Not the romantic setting I had anticipated for our date night away from the kids.
We loved the ambience and the service. The food was good but not remarkable enough to charge $60 for a piece of fish. Loved the restaurant and the view, service and the experience but probably would not go back. But everyone should go there at least once for the experience.
A very special venue that obviously is hugely popular with tourists (like us).
Service was very attentive, food delicious, certainly worth the wait to get in and slightly long wait between courses.
All told, though, it’s a very pleasant experience with a spectacular view of the Pacific.
Absolutely incredible! One of the best meals we've ever had! Freshness/creative cuisine. Ambiance beyond incredible both romantic and just before sunset, with 30' swells, just off the beach. Service by Jonathan was stellar and GM Kevin is beyond words. Looking forward to another meal this evening - saving the best for last before leaving Maui!!!
