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 handmade tapa print cloths cover the tables. Open air dining is equally exciting, and everyone enjoys watching the windsurfers performing offshore.

The safety & well-being of our staff, guests, and each and every member of our Maui community is of the utmost importance to us. We have implemented new health and safety protocols that go above and beyond our already strict standards. We look forward to serving you with safety and Aloha!

    From the walk to the restaurant - the coconut grove and the ocean view- to the landscape and decor — this place is draw dropping! The food was exquisite and worth every penny and more. Presentation- tastes were top notch.. this is THE place to eat at on Maui hands down..

    We’ve been to mamas fish house many times and have thoroughly enjoyed it. I didn’t love my entree this time. I had the uku and I found that the mushrooms overpowered the fish. Everything else was yummy

    Pricey, have had much better filet where I live. Wasn't very tender. I don't eat fish so can't rate that, the two others in my party said it was good. The service was excellent. The ambience is really what you go for, will go back just for that!

    We always make the effort to eat at Mama's every time we are on Maui. Once again it was a wonderful experience. Cocktails and appetizers (seared octopus and macadamia nut-crusted crab cakes) were delicious. The mahi-mahi with lobster and extra lobster tail decadent, but the fish curry was exceptional - perfectly seasoned and lots of sauce for the rice. Not an inexpensive outing, but just about worth the cost. Service is great - there is always someone near by to answer questions or place your next order. Highly recommended.

    We had an amazing lunch. The drinks were yummy, the appetizer crab cakes were delicious, and our server recommended adding prawns to our meal and those things were so amazing! Wish I would have gotten more. We were given a sweet little anniversary dessert which was just enough and had coffee drinks after our meal. The ambiance was amazing and the scenery was to die for. Wish it wasn’t so hard to get reservations so we could come back again!

    The request to not show up early set a bad tone. Not really sure why a restaurant would put that out there. We showed up five minutes early and got attitude. Was told to wait out front. Then we were not seated until twenty minutes after our reservation. No suggestion to get a drink at the bar. In fact it was frowned upon. Signs at the entrance state no bar space available with out a reservation. Regardless, our server and the chef saved the experience. Jeff was very knowledgeable and made the experience wonderful. The food was good but would of liked lighter choices. Prices were off the chart but that seems to be the norm these days. The location was beautiful. Right on the ocean.

    Second time at Mama’s, and everything was outstanding! We had guests visiting from out of town and they were amazed at the quality of food and with the exceptional service and attention from our server, Alexa. She took such good care of our group and answered the many questions about the food, restaurants, and general Maui questions. Thank you!

    Food and atmosphere were phenomenal. Our waitress seemed disappointed and annoyed we had little kids with us throughout our dinner, even though they were VERY well behaved…and for that reason I gave 4 stars for service. Her vibe was disappointing but we ignored her snobby attitude and enjoyed a delicious meal nonetheless.

    Mama's is located in a beautiful nook in Paia, HI. During annual trips to Maui a reservation at Mama's was mandatory to have an exceptional Maui experience. The restaurants location, ambience and service don't disappoint; they are very good. The menu has continued to evolve and to my disappointment the Mahi Mahi dish, just isn't what it used to be, and like all things the price at $75 a plate no longer meets the expectations we've come to anticipate when dining at Mama's.

    I had the pleasure of trying Mamas for the first time last year, and knew it was an absolute must to return on this trip. Not once, but twice. The food is spot on every single time, from the Mac Nut Crab Cakes to that dang Black Pearl… wow. I don’t remember our servers name from our first dinner, but Max was our server last night and he was funny, personable, suggestive… all around wonderful. This trips with my father, who is health wise… declining. Brittany was more than accommodating with helping us get a reservation, thank you SO MUCH. Being able to enjoy one of my top restaurants and seeing my dad smile the way he did… I couldn’t possibly ask for more. Thank you Mamas & staff, fishers, valet guys, and everyone in between… y’all are doing this thing right.

    Overall this experience was really nice. Food and wait staff were excellent. Only issue I had was that we arrived early and were not allowed to have a drink at the bar or in the waiting area while we waited for our table. We were told by the hostess that only walk up patrons were allowed at the bar. It was dark outside so walking around the grounds wasn’t really an option so had to sit and wait. I would suggest they consider allowing waiting patrons to order a drink while waiting for their table.
