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.

The ambience was great the food was great only problem is when I got my bill for six of us at the table and the bill was $420 and I gave the waitress $500 then she asked me if I needed change!! I replied yes. Then she returned the table with my $80 in change and proceeded to remind me that the bill did not include the tip! I found this very rude that she was so concerned about her tip remind me I need to tip her. I gave her a 20% tip ($80) but don’t think I’ll go back. I am sure Spin is a wonderful waitress But I do not need to be insulted about the tip.

Mama's Fish House is the standard for seafood and steaks in all of Hawaii and one of the best restaurants in the US! Freshest of fish and the fisherman is named and location identified. The beef is raised locally.

The ocean view is fantastic. The service is superb.

Make reservations. Go for a late lunch and enjoy the view of the surf.

From the cocktails to the deserts the experience at Mama’s Fishhouse is beyond the ability to rate. Every course (Mongolian beef appetizer, crab, lobster fish and apple tart with vanilla ice cream) was excellent. The is our second time and when we return to Maui there will be a third.

The ambiance is absolutely romantic and perfect setting. Fresh flowers at our table quite Hawaiian music to set the mood. Greatest meal we have ever had and we don’t say that lightly. Food was better than outstanding best freshest fish we have ever tasted. We will recommend this to all our friends for sure. Great for that special occasion my wife’s 50 birthday. Mahalo

We were on vacation celebrating our 40th anniversary and ate well all week. Mama’s was by far the best dining experience we had. It was head and shoulders above any other restaurant for both the food and beauty of the setting and decor. One special added to the menu was a seared ahi appetizer crusted with pepper and fennel as I recall. it was better than any ahi sushi I’ve had anywhere in the world. Our entrees were magnificent also. The meal was expensive— about $250 for the both of us including drinks and tip, but it was one of the most memorable experiences of our vacation. The entire meal and afterward we looked out at an absolutely beautiful beach setting. Definitely get here for a special Maui experience.

IF YOU ARE COMING for a wonderful stay on the majestic island of Maui, a visit to Mama's Fish House HAS to be on your list of must-dos, or else your trip will ultimately be incomplete. If you cannot get in on your upcoming Maui visit for whatever reason (BE SURE to book months in advance if you can!!), then make sure you plan ahead for next time. These days I book Mama's as soon as I know the dates I am coming back to the island and/or who's coming with me if its a special occasion.

My first experience at Mamas's a decade and a half or so ago became the first of many. Anytime I am visiting the island, Mama's is on my list and I treat everyone who comes with me because the food , the experience, the food, the ambiance, the food, the people... folks, Mama's is just the whole package. I can honestly claim that bar none, Mama's Fish House is my favorite restaurant on the planet; and I have been so fortunate to have visited many countries.

Full disclosure, you will pay a premium, however YOU ARE WORTH this premium, and you will feel like it when you leave utterly satisfied heart, mind and soul after your experience at Mama's. Cheers!

Get your reservation early and get yourself to Mamas. It was one of the most memorable experiences, both food quality wise, as well as service execution, we've had in our many years of fine dining. It looked like everyone was happy but to be sure, ask for Gil. He knows the menu inside why not end on a high note?

Lovely setting with a gorgeous view of the ocean and waves. We were seated immediately (we had reservations which are highly recommended) and served our cocktails right away. The mahi-mahi stuffed with crab and lobster was absolutely perfect and so was my husband’s short ribs. The interior is vintage and very Hawaiian and even though the menu prices are a bit high each item is well-worth the price.
