Mama's Fish House
Fabulous dining experience at Mama’s!!! The curry panang was to die for, and the lobster/crab stuffed fish was incredible. Best meal on the island.
I left feeling like this restaurant is highly overrated. We came to Maui for a wedding, and heard great things about Mama’s - that plus online reviews had us super excited to try it!
So disappointed but the experience. Ambiance is lovely, and the setting is beautiful, but the food and drinks are overpriced and underdelivered. The food was fine, but uninspired. Drinks were watered down, and our server was inattentive and unreliable. We saw other tables have much better service, but our waitress was disappointing. Overall I would NOT recommend Mama’s. I left feeling like I paid too much for a substandard meal. It was not the vacation high we’d hoped for.
Food was sublime and absolutely delicious. Service was a bit slow. Setting was beautiful.
Celebrating out honeymoon
Great food! Great bar ambiance. Great conversations!
Great restaurant, fun atmosphere and music. Food was excellent and a good variety of choices.
Celebrating our 45 anniversary. We were given beautiful leis and a special anniversary card from Mama’s! They made our evening amazing! Rachel our server was superb! Can’t wait to go back!
Outstanding! The ambiance, service and quality of the food is exceptional. A bit pricey but excellent!
Food and service were outstanding. We were at Mama’s Fish House for a special occasion and the staff delivered in every way. A very special place!
We absolutely love Mama’s, very pricey but so worth the splurge!
We always have the best time here! We are never disappointed! I crave it all year... see you next year Mamas!
Was worried about the hype, but it exceeded expectations. Food and service was top notch.
It was simply the best resaturant we went to in Maui!
Candace and I ate lunch at Mama's Fish House today. We weren't as hungry because we ate a late breakfast so we both ordered 2 appetizers each. My wife ordered the French onion soup (hearty, savory and delicious) and crab cakes (full of crab and scrumptious). I ordered the crispy mahi-mahi rolls (crispy, chock full of mahi-mahi and wonderful) and the Papa's sashimi (ahi, king salmon and kanpachi all extremely fresh and in different delectable sauces). Papa's sashimi was out of this world spectacular. In addition, the wait staff was extremely attentive, helpful and friendly. And, the ambience of the restaurant was exquisite. The ginger plants, hibiscus, anthuriums and the budding bird of paradise made it seem like you were dining in a botanical garden. Overall, one of the best dining experiences of our lives.
Thank you for always going above and beyond!! We have made going to Mama’s a tradition every time we visit Maui. Always 110%. Thank you for an amazing lunch and experience.
Definitely the priciest lunch I have had, but when you get amazing service and amazing food it is totally worth it!
Mama’s was amazing! The food was not only delicious but the presentation was fabulous as well.
The staff was knowledgeable and super friendly and helpful! Especially Rusty and Rodney!
We will definitely be back!
We went for our anniversary and it was nothing short of spectacular. The food was phenomenal and the service was the best we’ve ever had. Waiter was well informed and always on point!
Mahi mahi and the Ahi Panang curry dish are not to be passed on.
Unbelievable dining experience!
Book well in advance to get a decent Reservation time!

Food was very good but for the price of the food, the service was very poor and did not match the level of the restaurant. Our waitress forgot things we had ordered and didn't check in with us within our first few bites to see if our food was okay or if we were missing anything (which we were). Our water never got refilled. We had an 8 PM dinner slot and the restaurant was not busy so we could not understand why her attention was so divided.
Excellent! Excellent! Food was top quality, fresh, and creative presentation. ordered the stuffed fish and loved every bite. We shared several appetizers including the shrimp, the sashimi platter and a seared ahi special. Each were flavorful and different. And service was exceptional - from the valet to the hostess to the entire wait staff.
This restaurant has a well earned reputation for its excellent fish and seafood. The food, service and atmosphere are superb. The fish and seafood offerings are freshly caught and beautifully prepared and served. The non-fish or seafood eaters are also well looked after.
My wife’s birthday celebration
Great food and I can understand why you have such a long wait for reservations. Would highly recommend. Service was great. Wish it was not raining that day but you can’t control everything. We had a bird try to stray some of our bread but that added to the charm
We went for our anniversary and they had a special table set up with a nice card and even gave my husband a lei to give to me! What a spectacular place!! This was our 2nd visit and we were even more blown away than the first time! Thanks Mamas!! We wish we could visit monthly!!
Simply Devine.... the server was more then helpful with my allergies and made suggestions. Food was so amazing. One of my top 3 favourite restaurants ever
Great meal, location spectacular, service great. We had been there before, and the dinner was just as outstanding this time, despite the fact that there was a rain storm! The staff handled it perfectly, but they were running somewhat behind in sitting their reservations. We all had a drink in the bar, and it was a great opportunity to meet new people! I had the fish curry, and it was amazing, and my husband had the boulibase, and it was chalked full of seafood such as King Crab, Scallops, Shrimp, Clams and Fish with a rich and delicious broth! Don’t ever leave Mamma’s without one if their in-house made desserts! I would only caution would be that the drinks are too expensive. The thought of paying $20 for a drink is a little out of our league, especially when you take into consideration we are Canadians. Thank you again for the lovely afternoon. We will be back, that I can promise!
Food and service both excellent.
The food and service were fantastic! This lunch was well worth the cost and the wait.
Way over priced for the quality of the food. The noise level was so high we could barely carry on a conversation.
Fabulous service and food was outstanding! As always!
Fantastic food, great cocktails, outstanding service. Lives up to the hype & worth every penny. Definitely a must in Maui!
Delicious food with ample portions delivered with very attentive friendly service. Many folks left with takeaway bags. Tropical Cocktails are fresh, authentic top shelf recipes. Daily menu, so most fish is locally fresh. TIP The Black Pearl chocolate covered mousse dessert is an absolute treat with amazing presentation! Ambience is relaxed, romantic Hawaiiana Polynesian NOT a fanciful tiki bar. Mama’s is a bit pricy but highly memorable for all good reasons! It made our special occasion even more special! Mahalo!

Everyone said if you get to Maui you have to eat at Mama’s. And you do. It is an experience. Top notch service in an amazing atmosphere. We both enjoyed our meals, although my fish stew could have been more flavorful, it was loaded with seafood. Our appetizers were delicious which we had at the bar. I would highly recommend Mama’s for a unique dining experience.
At Mama's you are paying (60 USD per entree or more) for the provenance of the freshly caught fish by specifically named fisherman in specifically identified waters around the islands. Except when they run out at which point those selections are replaced by the ubiquitous "mahi mahi" probably from some industry supplier. This is what happened with 3 out of 3 of our entrees at 7pm on a Monday evening, which means it must happen all of the time. When I complained the manager handled it beautifully and she gets high marks for that..but it still ruined what should have been a singular culinary experience.
We always have a dinner at Mama’s during our Maui vacation.
We loved our evening at Mama's. The lounge is great, dining room very comfortable and everything very atmospheric for oceanside dining. We had the stuffed seafood which is supposed to be their no. 1 dish...it was delish. We tho't $25 per glass of wine unreasonably steep.
Everything was wonderful. Beautiful view, delicious food, fantastic service, great drinks.
Wonderful! Never disappoints❤️
I felt very crowded at our table. There were 4 adults and 2 kids-I had asked for 2 high chairs. We were placed at a table for 4. Really uncomfortable. I had made the reservation months ago and feel we could have been accommodated nicer.
Always the best good, atmosphere and service. Great drinks, great views, wonderful staff. Amazing!
