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.

Ambience was nice, arrive early so you can take pictures on the beach front.

Service was lacking, we were celebrating two birthdays I called in advance to let them know of our occasion they said they would have cards out and completely forgot. My girlfriend is allergic to eggs and they kept trying to give her vegan and diary free options over and over. When they brought out the food they kept messing up who ordered what. Now don’t get me wrong these aren’t horrible mistakes but when you are spending $60+ a plate you would hope the service would be comparable to a steak house and it was by far not.

Food was ok, personally it was more of an experience. We had bought Ono fish at the farmers market and it was much better than our meal at Mamas.

I am happy we all went it was a nice experience, I believe it had got so hyped up I expected it to be mind blowing and when it was not I was disappointed.

Hard to find a place that lives up to the hype, but Mama’s delivered! Will make a staple upon our return to Maui. Service (Neil was our fantastic waiter), food and location can’t be beat.

Going to Mamas was a special experience. Watching the sunset while eating dinner was very beautiful. However, you feel like you are just a number and they are trying to get you in and out. There was a lot of hype about this restaurant so maybe we just had higher expectations but this place was just okay in our minds. We’re glad we went but would not return.

This place is absolutely beautiful! As soon as you walk-in you know why people love it and you haven’t even tasted the food yet. There is a wonderful view of the ocean and beach. The food is some of the best I had on the island. It is definitely a place to try once during your stay. The stuffed fish is to die for!

We were told by several people that if we ever get to Maui, we must go to Mama’s Fish House and they were so right. The grounds are beautiful and the service was amazing! The food was incredible. The chef prepared each meal with such flare and the tastes were out of this world. We came to Hawaii to celebrate my 50th birthday and this restaurant was the perfect place for us to have a special meal on this occasion.

From the moment we arrived it was first class service, the staff were excellent. We've been on many cruises (noted for their excellent food) but the food at Mamma's was far superior. An experience that went beyond awesome. The meal was extraordinary.

Beautiful setting. Perfect for a nice lunch by the beach. We felt welcomed and were well taken care of by the staff. Ambiance is superb. The food was not only gorgeous to look at and presented well, the taste was superb. Best meal on Maui. Recommend: crab cakes, sashimi, crab stuffed fish with lobster tail (we shared the main course), and the black pearl dessert. Highly recommend!

Well worth a visit.....at least once in your life!

Food was good, overpriced...sure. It's a novelty and you definitely pay extra for that aspect of Mama's Houee.

The food was good, not exceptional for what you're paying, but the service was great and the restaurant itself has a lot of unique historical qualities about it. I think it's worth trying if you have the time and spare $$$$ to burn. I would make a reservation far in advance 2 month + if you want a good time/table in the evening.

A friend recommended that we go while here in Maui. It was an amazing experience that we would recommend to anyone, however; it is VERY expensive so you must take that into account. We had appetizers and drinks and the bill was still over $140! If you plan to go make sure you understand that entrees will run you $50 and more. Overall though it was still worth it and not to be missed if you can afford it. Also go a bit early and walk around the grounds and down to the beach as it is a beautiful location.

We started with delicious crab cakes and drinks then Trout raised in Kula that was done perfectly also the Prawns In Tahiti’s vanilla and stuffed fish that the birthday girl loved. Service was great, as always, the food fresh and very tasty and the desert of chocolate caramel pie was to die for with ice cream. Very expensive, so we go for special occasions only because it is always like visiting a fantasy paradise. So beautiful and the aloha flows from everyone that works there. My daughter had a memorable birthday dinner.

Thank you to Mama's Fish House for hosting my celebrating of a birthday. They do everything so well and never do you feel rushed or just another visitor to Maui. You are made to feel special from all whom bring their fine service and yummy food for your senses. My waiter Eric was very attentive providing a perfect pace to be able to take it all in. His longevity as a seasoned server at Mama's has not become just another ordinary day at work. He seemed to share his work with pride and genuine care. Ross the busman was so nice in taking extra time speaking to me about Maui and the islands. A true local with a energetic kind mana and a true sense of aloha. Both made for another outstanding dinning experience at Mama. Mahalo.

Mama’s Fish House is a beautiful, open-aired restaurant on the water with accompanying views and wonderful service. The drinks we had were very good, but for $60 an entree, our main dishes were uninspired- simple grilled fish with bland sides didn’t leave me wowed. Go for the view, not the food.

Our server was great, he answered our questions about the menu with very descriptive details - which made making our lunch choices very easy (as everything sounds amazing). We asked for the complimentary poi and was amazed with what a great palette cleanser it turned out to be - We were able to distinctly taste the flavours of each dish with the help of this small paste. The food was impeccable, we loved it all (ranch beef, crab cakes, stuffed fish, panang curry - this was delicious, but very heavy). Lastly the view was spectacular out table had a great ocean view.
