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.
Celebrating 10 Year’s of marriage. Treated special from the moment we walked in until we left. Great food and awesome staff!
Spectacular as always
Best dinner I’ve ever had.
Everything was spectacular - food, service, and ambiance. Every part of the meal was amazing - our favorite dinner in Hawaii by far. We will remember this meal for a long time.
This place was amazing. Our food was outstanding. Our server was seen but not heard, and the view is pretty much unbeatable. Highly recommend it!
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.
Very good restaurent with nice food and sunset
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.
Outstanding! Gorgeous beachfront setting, stunning restaurant, superb service, and the food was to die for. Everything was absolutely delicious! Highly recommend and we will be back!
One of the best dining experiences of my life. Just amazing!
Everything about our visit to Mama’s Fish House was outstanding! The food was amazing and the service was impeccable. Would definitely recommend it if you are in Maui.
Amazing way to celebrate our 15th anniversary - great location on the beach hearing the ocean while being treated like royalty by the staff and eating the freshest tasty food.
Great service and delicious food. Staff was very friendly.
44th anniversary was a great occasion at Mama’s Fish House. Our server, Jeff, was top-notch and the lei presented to my wife was an extra touch.
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.
Late mamma day
The food is amazing and worth the more expensive cost. Beautiful view of beach and ocean no matter where you sit in the restaurant. Very attentive and friendly wait-staff. Highly recommend to anyone visiting Paia.
It’s honestly a little overrated.
The general review of mamas fish house is OUTSTANDING on every level in-magnanimous yes it’s expensive but, it’s worth every hard earned penny.
Celebrated two birthdays at mamas fish house the other evening. We come here every time we are on Maui. It has a ambience of old Hawaii and the mai tais and food is fabulous You absolutely need reservations and way ahead of your vacation arrival.
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.
The food was wonderful. Generous portions, hot, beautiful presentation. Our server, Jennifer, was fun, informative, and did not try to up-sell. Her timing was perfect. We will definitely be returning on our next trip to Maui! The scenery at Moma’s was gorgeous.
The food and service are outstanding!!!
Amazing! I love this restaurant and the ambience, the decorations, the food was delicious, our waiter was knowledgeable and spoke clearly and presented the menu well, I am definitely coming back.
The food was good but I have had better but the view was wonderful
View was awsesome. This would be the only reason I would recommend.
Lovely! Beautiful views, exceptional service, delicious food. If you can go, you should.
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.
Great must go when on maui
Very much worth the visit and expense. You will not be disappointed in any way!
One word- Amazing. A must for anyone on the island. Even for the day.
This was the perfect place for our 35th anniversary dinner. Food was the best on the island! Love the fresh caught fish & delicious pairings! Thx for the good time!
