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. Open air dining is equally exciting, and everyone enjoys watching the windsurfers performing offshore.

Unfortunately I may never know how the food is. The kitchen had to close after we for seated and we had to leave without experiencing the food. The menu looked great...the scenary was spectacular. My birthday dinner was ruined. Not their fault, just unfortunate that they had a water main break in the kitchen.

We had a great time at Mama’s Fish House! Food was wonderful! Drinks a bit high but excellent in taste!! Our waitress was excellent! Beautiful tall Hawaiian young lady who did not miss a beat... very attentive! We showed up early to sit at the bar and they were able to seat us early for dinner. We requested that if possible! Still got an amazing ocean view!

The only negative comment you see about Mama's is cost. IMHO... this is the best it gets on the planet... from the moment you arrive in the parking lot 'til you drive out onto the highway. Nobody does anything for free in the food business. If they do, they're not in business for long. Mama's is the poster child for "doing it right". They hire the best people who do the best job and get paid accordingly. If that's not your cup of tea, stop off at Wendy's and get a burger and a shake! Mama's is TOP SHELF... you're going to pay for it and always know it's going to be done right! If you want the best, be prepared to pay for it...

Mama's...hadn't been there in over 10 years..mostly because of the price...dinner is VERY expensive...2 appetizers, 2 main courses, and a split dessert, no alcohol, you're looking at over $200...but, definitely worth it for a splurge....dinner was excellent...cant beat the freshness of the fish...sashimi was awesome...kampachi kama was very good..wife for stuffed mahi and it was really good..I had the steak...everything cooked as expected...very rare for locals to like tourist places, but Mama's is excellent...my only complaint is outdated "Hawaiian" decor, but it doesnt affect my rating... food wins out over everything

Mama's Fish House is at the top of every list for very good reasons... Outstanding food, low-key smart and thoughtful service, and an unbelievably lovely setting make for a truly memorable experience.

My wife had a special whole fried local-raised rainbow trout, which was a touch bony but beautifully prepared and presented. I enjoyed a delicious cut of ahi tuna marinated in a mildly spicy soy concoction and grilled in a ti leaf. Everything is carefully orchestrated here for a world-class experience.

Food, service and ambiance was amazing and quintessential Hawaiian... price are HIGH and probably the most expensive meal I’ve ever had... and I’m from NYC and live in LA. We were there for our anniversary and they gave us what seemed like the best seat in the house looking out towards the water. Great touch with a personalized welcome card. Made for an incredible dinner experience.

Just fabulous food, good service. A little pricy but i would not hesitate to book there again.
Oh, and you had better book reservations. They do walk up but your table will not be as good
and there could be a lengthy wait. I'll be going back the next time im in Maui

Best food and service on Maui and great for special occasions as it is a little pricey. We started our meal with Macadamia Nut Crab Cakes and a Blue Hawaii. The main course was Mama's Stuffed Mahi-Mahi and South Pacific Blue Prawns. Dessert was Polynesian Black Pearl. The food was all excellent. Can't wait to go again.

We were celebrating our anniversary. Mama’s did not disappoint. We appreciated the thoughtful and unique Happy Anniversary Card from mama on the table as well as timely seating at our reservation time. If you have never been to Mama’s Fish House, put it on your list of things to do at least once while on island. Beautiful grounds, great service wonderful food with local flavors. Nice wine and cocktails selection. And if you like chocolate and lilikoi together, don’t miss the Tahitian Pearl for dessert. Make Reservations well in advance , if possible.

Went to celebrate my husband's birthday. They had a personalized birthday card for him on the table when we got there. They were very accommodating to my food allergies and went beyond my expectations on creating a special local dish to my dietary needs. We will be back every time we visit the island!
