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.

Celebrating anniversary- 4th visit. Didn’t disappoint but has gotten really expensive. $6 for a soda with a kieki meal was a bit much after paying $25 for their meals. Food was delicious, just a bit pricey. Still love it there. Can’t beat the authentic Hawaiian atmosphere.

Must be special for the price and yes, everything was nicely prepared and served. To accommodate we ordered a few appetizers, a side dish and two entree for the 4 of us and ate family style. The experience and opportunity to try many dishes was perfect. We have been coming to Mama’s for 30+ years. Quality is always outstanding in every respect.

Mama's Fish House is situated in an amazing location. The view of the beach is unreal. However, the food was decent but way overpriced. The service was also great but not sure it was worth the inflated pricing. Would not necessarily recommend if you are on a budget. However, it was a decent experience.

Reservation right on time. All our fish selections were amazing. The place was busy, for sure; but it is a destination not just a meal. Hence the time commitment was on the upper end - 2.5 hours. But we went for the experience, not a drive through burger. Overall, very pleased.

Everything was wonderful, from the valet service to the sunset! Table service was prompt, warm and swift without being rushed. Every morsel was beautiful and delectable! We all had a marvelous time and will do it again when we return to Maui. Pricey? Perhaps, but compared to a luau for 4, it was hands-down the better deal. Mahalo for perfect evening in every way!

Had heard about this place for years and finally bit the bullet,mortgaged our modest home and citied Mama’s Fish House. While it is,in fact, pricey, the meal, service, ambiance and quality were well worth the price. My wife and I had a couple of cocktails and shared the Crispy Mahi Rolls A. Appetizer. The bride had MAma’s Stuffed Kampachi which she said was wonderful. I had the Boullibasse which was marvelous. Will go to Mama’a if we are in Maui ever again! Don’t miss it, but make reservations well in advance.

Our waiter was superb, he knew how everything was prepared and me being gluten intolerant made sure everything was accommodated to exclude it. We love coming here, it’s one of our favorites on Maui. The food & atmosphere are so wonderfully done. Maybe have to stay at the newly refurbished inn next visit!!

Server was not good. He was awkward. He gave us way too much information about himself. He touched my shoulder every time he came to the table. Appetizers arrived before the bread and the amuse bouche. Then a long time before main course arrived. Server took the wine glasses off the table but neglected to ask us if we wanted wine with our dinner. We ordered our dessert at the same time as our dinner. However, after dinner he handed us dessert menus. And proceeded to tell us about each dessert. We reminded him that we had given him our dessert preference earlier. We go to Mamas every year and this year was the most disappointing. We spent over $200. Had a great table. Great food and cocktail. Server needs work.

Our food was good to excellent. The crab cake appetizer was disappointing. I am from Maryland where a truly great crab cake has juicy lumps of crabmeat in it. The meat in Mama's crabcakes are shredded, so not as moist as they should be. My entree--the stuffed fish was excellent. My daughter's ahi tuna steak was superb. What I liked about these entrees is that they are healthy with no fried sides. The two criticisms are 1) the price of entrees are outrageous, but people are still coming here and paying the exorbitant prices. 2) The decor is a bit too Polynesian for me, but perhaps that's what appeals to them. The setting is lovely with a deep sandy and shady beach just outside.

Some may a little pricey (lobster tails $100) and the menu is limited to mostly seafood but the food is great and the view and ambiance are over the top. It's off the beaten path because there are no resorts close but on a major highway. Be sure to make reservations and you'll get the best table even though all are ocean view worthy,

We visit Mama’s at least once a year and love the food, staff, and ambiance. This trip was so relaxing and delicious. Our server, Lacy, took wonderful care of us. We were seated at a lovely window table where we could appreciate the restaurant’s beautiful setting overlooking a small cove and beautiful Pacific Ocean. My dad enjoyed the Mahi Mahi with hamakua mushrooms. My spouse loved the Pompio and black rice. I tried the Kanpachi, which was delightful. We also enjoyed Mama’s amazing crab cakes, housemade strawberry sorbet, and haupia to finish. Mama’s is an essential stop if you are visiting Maui. It is expensive, but worth every bite. Go and enjoy a dining experience like no other.
