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.

*** As mandated by the County of Maui, all patrons 12 years old and older must be fully vaccinated or have a negative COVID test within 48 hours to dine at Mama's Fish House. Must show proof AND government or student issued ID upon entry.

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!

We came to Mama’s to celebrate our honeymoon and we were absolutely blown away by everything we were served. The staff is kind, organized, and friendly. Get the crab cakes and shrimp wontons! The whole experience was amazing!

We all enjoyed our meals….the curry fish preparation was excellent and not too spicy, diner who chose the steak declared it the best he’s ever had….and he’s eaten a lot of steak, the lobster stuffed fish was delicious. I think we decided our favorite dessert between the coconut chiffon cake, cookies with ice cream and banana crisp was the warm banana crisp. The experience was a 2nd visit for us and a first for our friends….it lived up to our hopes! The oceanside, old Hawaiian setting is amazing and relaxing.

Mama’s & Merriman’s are the best on the Island. A little pricey, but I knew that before I went there. We will go back again and again and again.

We live here on Maui and Mama’s is for those special occasions. It was my birthday, and what a treat! Definitely expect to pay a lot but the food is always cooked perfectly. I love so many things on the menu it’s hard to decide what to get! Beautiful grounds and ambiance, since Covid there are a lot less tables which is actually a lot nicer for space and noise level. Save room for dessert!

Excellent experience except checking in. My wife left her license back at the hotel and the check in girl would not let her in despite the fact that we had our vaccination cards and a photo ID!
We spoke with the manager who took care of us!

We eat here regularly. Last night was the first time the hostess really didn’t check our vaccination records. Every other time, the host has always been very meticulous in checking. Last night she semi-looked. She obviously didn’t really care. One of our guests came down COVID positive today so I really hope Mama’s will
Continue to rigorously check.

Thanks!

Exceptional- Dining for our honeymoon we nearly skipped dinner here after reading reviews that Mama’s was overhyped. Yes, it’s expensive. A quality experience, ambiance, incredibly knowledgeable server who walked us through the menu selections and most importantly our meal from appetizers to dessert was exceptional. For us, the overall experience was well worth the price.

Only problem with Mama's is getting a reservation, but we were lucky, and went with three friends (party of 5). We had been before, and were pleased to have the opportunity to share the experience with first-timers: by the end of the meal, they were saying things like "this might be the best meal I've ever had in a restaurant in my entire life!". The fish entrees were once again wonderful, this time I tried the short ribs with lobster and it was excellent as well. Can't beat the food, and can't beat the view!

Mama’s had been recommended to us by associates, to the point that we made reservations 5 months in advance. If a restaurant is going to require a reservation to get in, I would expect that they would honor their reservation. Once we arrived at the restaurant, our reservation was confirmed, and we were directed to the hostess to check in. Apparently, reservations mean nothing to this establishment - as we waited 30 minutes to be seated and greeted by our waiter. This soured what we had hoped to be a great experience.

The hype is not over done! Excellent all the way around. Inventive menu--my husband loved his fish curry with three types of fish (said best he ever had and he's had many). I loved the mahi mahi stuffed with crab and lobster. Joey provided great service. Beautiful seeing. Other than a short wait past our reservation time, all else was up to the build up.

They made me feel very special for my 60th birthday celebration! The food was beyond good. I had the macadamia nut crusted mahi-mahi, and loved it! But the Black Pearl dessert put it over the top! The taste and the presentation was out of this world! Kayla and Jen were awesome as well. They made us feel like we want to come back again and again!

My husband and I came for our anniversary. What a treat! The personal touches were very nice, like a “Happy anniversary” card with our names on it. Our waiter used our names, and made the evening very special. He also took a fantastic picture of us, which we will cherish for years! The food was incredible! And filling too! You really couldn’t be disappointed here! We felt so special, and well cared for. To top it off… we had a lovely surprise, they had us open an envelope that said our meal was provided to us by my Brother-in law and his beautiful wife. Wow! We will definitely need to pay it forward! 🐠🛖🌺💕

No better place to dine on the island! Start to finish everything was perfect. The chef is phenomenal, 30 years in the industry’s has served him well and in turn his kitchen serves their patrons very well. Mike, our server was extremely knowledgeable, kind and fun!! Top notch! We’ve made our way through most of the menu and have been delighted with every choice. We find it best to let our server make recommendations based on our likes. They haven’t steered us wrong!

My husband and I were in Maui on our Honeymoon and heard Mama’s Fish House was a restaurant we HAD to go to if we could get a reservation. I was able to set an alert up through OpenTable to let me know if any reservations opened up during the time we would be in Maui. I was so happy we finally got an alert and have a reservation booked.

When we arrived to our table, staff had a very nice note on the table congratulated us on our honeymoon and welcoming us to the restaurant. The staff was extremely attentive and kind to us. The food was amazing and I had the best lobster tails I’ve ever had!

The food, drinks and experience are certainly worth the price. Highly recommend!

From start to finish our experience at Mama’s was everything we hoped for and more. The restaurant itself is beautiful, situated right on a beautiful beach, with curated landscaping making it the cherry on top. I’ve never felt more welcomed and cared for by wait staff, thank you Dominic! Last and especially not least, the food was phenomenal and worth every penny! Will definitely be back!

We had a party of 8 and the service couldn't have been better. The food was amazing as always, every single thing that came out of the kitchen was incredible. The server was knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. And of course the setting is hard to beat. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Mama's and can't wait to return.
