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
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.
One of Maui’s best and it is easy to see why, hard to go wrong with such a view. We had two kids with us and we appreciated the server taking the time to help us get the right things for them.
They stay on top of service at your table, quickly clearing dirty dishes and cups.
Absolutely phenomenal. The food is all fresh and cooked to perfection. Worth the hour drive. Our waiter was exceptional. Highly responsive, informed and shared about the food ingredients. However he refused to write down the order, which is a pet peeve and forgot the salad.
The ceviche is incredible and loved the bouillabaisse.
Everyone told us that we had to have dinner at Mama's while vacationing in Maui for our anniversary. To be honest, I was beginning to wonder if the restaurant would live up to the hype. But our experience not only lived up to our expectations, it exceeded them! The ambiance was perfect; the food was glorious. Our waiter, John, was attentive and knowledgeable. Our dinner at Mama's will be a highlight from our trip. Oh yeah, and the Pua Hana is my new favorite island cocktail.
We have been patrons of Mamas many times over our years of part-time residency on Maui. We “save” our Mamas visits for super special occasions. Have had anniversaries several times and hosted our sons weddeing rehearsal dinner there just over 10 years ago! Always love it and look forward to going.
We had an amazing experience at Mama's Fish House. The drinks were fabulous. They brought out some complimentary soup from the chef that was delicious. We got the clams for an appetizer and highly recommend them! I had the stuffed fish and my husband had the bouillabaise. Both extremely good. I'm bummed we couldn't manage to save room for dessert. We will definitely be back.
This restaurant lived up to the rave reviews! The atmosphere was amazing, the service was exceptional and the food was delightful. My only complaint is that I booked my reservation a bit late (7pm) so it was already starting to get dark by the time we arrived at 6:30pm. It would have been better if I booked my reservation for 6pm so we got to enjoy the ocean scenery a bit more but the coconut grove with tiki torches was also quite beautiful. We will be back on every trip to Maui we take!
While on the pricey side, the value is high. Excellent quality fish prepared in interesting ways, and the wait staff was friendly, efficient and helpful. This was our second time there while on vacation in Maui over the last couple of years. Worth the drive from just about any place on the island.
A friend recommended this restaurant to me and it did not disappoint it was the highlight of my trip to Maui. The food was amazing, featuring locally caught fish and meat and the portion sizes were very generous. The food was brought out slowly allowing you to have a truly magical dinner while sitting next to the Ocean. Well worth the reservations and drive.
I am so tired of booking way in advance and noting in notes and to staff that i want a table by the window and ALWAYS NOT getting what i ask for. Today we arrived for lunch to find one table by the window ONLY to be told it was reserved for another group. What the heck did i Not make a reservation and request. I am sick of them always having an excuse as to why I can not get a table I requested.
The food was quite good but totally overpriced and I do not understand why reservationist can not take your request ahead of time.
Very nice place for a date night. From the Valet parking to the stunning grounds our first impressions were great! We arrived a bit early and the bar was full so we had to wait in the hostess area. Beautiful plants and some celebrity phots on the wall... wasn’t the worst wait we’ve ever had😉
We were sat in the middle of the restaurant. A table up front would have been nice, but it was fine. The prices were a bit on the high side but as I was driving I only had one MaiTai. We started with the crab cakes, they were good. For dinner I had the stuffed fish and my wife had the Curry. Both dishes were excellent and plentiful. We skipped dessert.
I would recommend this place if you’re looking for a foodie experience. It’s expensive but good. 3 drinks one apple and 2 mains was $220.00 with tip
