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.

Mama's is too pricey for frequent dining, but it is well worth it for special occasions. We celebrated our anniversary and there was a thoughtful card on the table as well as a lovely lei was given for my wife. The fish is very fresh. We cannot seem to get past the tenderloin in papaya far starters and the Penang curry for the main. Always excellent. The service is also awesome.

Great food, ambiance, etc. They didn't have opakapaka!!! A fish house with no opakapaka?!!! Makes no sense! It was a special occasion (birthday) and there was nothing special for the birthday girl! Why ask if you're not going to give a dessert or something?!!

Loved the food and Mama’s treats its diners like royalty. The servers were all very knowledgeable and accommodating. My husband and I were there on our honeymoon and Mama’s was the perfect romantic dinner for us. The open windows with the background of palm trees and a quiet beach was spectacular as the sun set over the water. It was the perfect dinner. Then we saw a huge turtle relaxing on the beach after our dinner! Perfect, just perfect....

Mama’s never disappoints! What an incredible meal! Everything was just delicious. It was our second time celebrating our anniversary there. We started with the won ton appetizer, then had the tomato salad and lovely mixed green and goat cheese salad. I had the Mac crusted mahi mahi stuffed with lobster and crab while my husband had the seafood bouillabaisse. We were stuffed but of course had to have dessert...creme brûlée and coconut cake. We waddled out but without shame! Best meal on the island!

Mama’s Fish House definitely lived up to the hype! The food was amazing, the service was fantastic, and the ambiance and view are great. I ordered the Mama’s Stuffed Fish (macadamia nut crusted mahi mahi stuffed with crab and lobster) based on the server’s recommendation and I’m glad I did. The dish was so good and the perfect portion size. The server also recommended the Maui Banana Macadamia Nut Crisp and it was so freaking good. Get it. You won’t be sorry.

The food was great. Our server, while very nice, was not as attentive as the severs for the other tables in our area. He seemed to be distracted. This was mentioned to management.

Words can not describe the ambience of this great meal & perfect view. Our experience was amazing from the time we stepped out of our car until we stepped back into
It. Valet parking is fast & friendly. Then u step into this wonder land. First ur catch by the amazing views of the ocean lapping at the shore. U make ur way down a little path into a small entrance where u are greeted by the warmth of a smiling face. Enter into the restaurant be seated and open ur mind to the possibilities. We had Mama’s stuffed fish. It was so delicious!! We left with a full belly & a warm heart. If u get the chance to go. Go!

A mixed bag. Beautiful setting. Quite expensive and even more so since it was 50/50 hit or miss. The gratis amuse was an amazing ginger tomato soup so things looked promising. Coconut ceviche app was delicious. The recommended ahi was seriously over cooked and tough and dry. The lobster stuffed fish w macadamia crust was very tasty. The 3 sides you could get: poi, kalua pig and curry octopus were just fair.
Service started out bright but then big lags in food showing up. Server never asked how the food was when he saw that ahi uneaten.
So I’d go for a drink and an app but it’s so hyped you need reservations well in advance. Not really worth it for the price and inconsistency of food. Despite the gorgeous setting.

Been to Mamas every time we visit the island. Everything is wonderful. The stuffed fish is my favorite and like nothing you get anywhere. The only problem we ever had occurred on this visit. There was a huge gap between the salad and the main course. The manager came over on his own, apologized and comped us on the deserts. Nice touch. The decor is incredible - actually beyond belief. Hand carved wood and incredible details all over the place. Flowers are delivered daily by an outfit that only works with them.

This place is a must when you visit Maui. Reserve a month ahead.

Heard about it online. Made reservations the day before. The service is remarkable. Everyone is kind, helpful and warm. We had amazing table, I assume because we told them it was our 20th wedding anniversary but it was probably the best table in the house. Open air windows out to a million dollar view. Our waiter checked on us every few minutes, gave amazing suggestions and never let our water or drinks empty. The food is “lick the plate”delicious. Definitely will return.

One of the twin lobster tails were under-cooked. At $85 shouldn’t need to send back to the kitchen. Meal I’m general was overpriced. Food was very good but not spectacular, which is what we had been led to expect.
