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.

It was our 35th anniversary and Mama’s was awesome! On par with best meals we’ve ever had. Highly recommended for special occasion or romantic date night. We will definitely be back!

The food was good, but we have had good food for elsewhere for a fraction of the price. It was quite warm, which was slightly uncomfortable. The waiter was ok, but didn't really have strong recommendations and certainly was not outstanding. All in all a nice experience, but not worth the $275 price tag.

As always, it was amazing! Loved the seared ono, shrimp wontons and opaka ceviche. My fav drink is always the Pau Hana and it was a fun visit for drinks and pupus this time. :)

We were seated at a very nice table. Wonderful service and some of the best food we have ever tasted.
We were so pleased to have had lunch there. Will return the next time we visit Maui. We live on the Big Island so we don't travel to Maui often

It was for my daughters birthday. She was fussy but they were nice enough to provide us a free dessert to go. Seafood was fresh. Portion size was smaller than I anticipated. Got a side of rice which was good.

Excellent...was probably my 4th time dining at mama’s, I’m not sure if it was due to the capacity restrictions helping the chef and staff’s attention to detail, but our meal was the best I’ve ever had there. Excellent octopus appetizer, seared ono sashimi was amazing as well as the mahi mahi entree. Great visit!

The usp of this place is the freshness of food/ingredients and the staff. We were helped by Miley who not only was accommodating of varied diets but also let the servers know the preferences and altered dishes or recommendations to suit it.
The menu is limited but it's revised daily and they deliver on those dishes on point! Outside of what's on it, there are also have daily specials based on catch and season! Go with their recommendations (esp if you're comfortable with trying new things).

Amazing food. These guys know their seafood. I had the bouillabaisse with the side of lobster - everything inside this soup was cooked to perfection; the lobster was so moist and tender. Will definitely come back again. Our server Jeff was especially outstanding. I have gluten-sensitivity and they were more than accommodating. Overall a fantastic experience and will definitely come back when we visit Maui again.

Everything we heard and read was true. Such a unique, gorgeous location and the ambiance and decor were stunning. Drinks and dinner were top notch. Although we had a later dinner reservation, we were able to get seated earlier at the bar with a lovely ocean view. We both had the local fish—a type of Amberjack—stuffed with crab & lobster in a macadamia nut crust. Black Pearl dessert a work of pastry art. Yes, it’s expensive and a splurge. Don’t leave Maui without making this part of your vacation experience!

Mama’s never disappoints! This place is consistently incredible, year after year and visit after visit. When in Maui, go to Mama’s. Just do it. Yes, it’s pricey, but it’s worth every penny. The staff is amazing, the food is delicious, and the view and ambiance are out of this world. Spend a couple hours enjoying this magical place and get there early to walk around and get some beautiful pics in Mama’s patch of paradise; this place is phenomenal in every way.

We came on our honeymoon and lucked into snagging a reservation after someone cancelled and SO glad we did! While it is pricey, it was still less expensive than many other 5 star restaurants but the food and service was far superior to what we’ve experienced at those other places. Our server was Mike. He was outstanding. He walked us through the menus, gave real recommendations (not what was most expensive, but truly his favorite items and why) and the food was as good as he explained it. The extras like a note celebrating our honeymoon and touches from Mike, made the entire experience unforgettable. This dinner made our Maui vacation even better and was definitely a highlight of our trip.

This place was delicious! I’ve heard great things so we had to try it. It’s on the more pricey side but definitely worth it. We went for an anniversary late lunch because I couldn’t get dinner time, they wished us a happy anniversary and gave us a small desert. It was perfect.

Both ambiance and food were great. However the service was just ok. Received call a day before reservation to ask who we celebrate birthday and any food allergy. I said it’s my husband birthday and a person allergic to nuts. When we arrived at the site the property is beautiful. Once we were seated the ocean view from our table was great and our server greeted us and did not mention our birthday celebration and did not warn us on any nuts dishes. Our server just told us what they have on the menu and a couple dishes just said half of it. It’s better to read the menu ourselves and 50% of their dishes have nuts. With what they charged, I expected top notch service but did not receive that. However, we did enjoy the food and view a lot.
