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.

Exceptional Evening! Great place and a “dont miss” while in Maui. Try their hand crafted cocktails. Excellent! We had the Sashimi sampler as an appetizer which was fresh, local caught. Then the stuffed Mahi Mahi, a Mama’s original. Stuffed with crab and 1/2 lobster tail and served with the other lobster tail half. Exquisite.

But the real star of the show was the black pearl dessert. Absolutelymust get this. See photos for more!!!!

We went for our honeymoon after being told this place was a must visit. The initial decor seems a little extra but the food was the most amazing food we had on the island. The view was 10/10, definitely go before it gets dark so you can take in the beauty. Our waiter Brad was also amazing!!!

We went to Mama's Fish House because we wanted a "glorious" experience...we dressed casual but nice and had our son and his wife with us as well (the first "kid free" vacation they had in 13 years). Our reservations were for a 3:30 dinner and the staff was wonderful, especially our waiter. However, I felt like we had entered an upscale McDonalds - kids everywhere - running around, crying babies, very casual dress (just off the beach attire). The total price for our meal was over $450 including the tip...it was nice, but the noise level and lack of decorum from the diners was distracting at best. Very overpriced for what we experienced. I will not recommend.

We celebrated my wife’s birthday at Mama’s while on Maui for a short vacation. The service was excellent. The person who was our server may have been one of the best we have ever had in our lifetime of fine dining. We have travelled the world and never have had such a wonderful experience. Wish we could remember her name - she made the experience well worth the effort to go to Mama’s.

One of the best meals I have ever eaten. Service that is at a level above most other restaurants; every piece of silver is polished before they set it on the table. They have a staff member who does nothing but set tables; we watched him set up a table, decided he wasn’t happy, took everything off, whisked the tablecloth off, and started over. On the menu, printed daily, they tell you the name of the fisherman and where he caught the fish. Beautifully presented super delicious fresh fish with wonderful flavorful local ingredients; each plate is a work of art. For dessert I had the lightest most fluffy piece of coconut cake ever baked. The setting is right next to the beach, open air, with palm trees and tiki torches. Expect high prices but if you’re a foodie you simply must eat here.

The fish was caught fresh that day, vegetables fresh from farm. Our server was welcoming, helpful with food selections and very friendly. It is the one place in Maui we would definitely make sure we came to again if we returned.

We made reservations after reading so much about this restaurant. We arrived early, sat in the bar- wasn’t greeted for 10-15 minutes, only for the bar tender to half ask us if we had been helped. We overlooked this, and ordered a $150 bottle of wine (as we were celebrating my husband’s 45th B-Day), hoping it get better. After 10 mins our reservation was past, we had to asked to be seated, plus had to ask about our bottle of wine. So got off to a bad start. After being seated, we saw the menu, ordered, and after the waitress ignoring my husband the whole time- it was barely tolerable. The food was very good, the view was great- but service was was something to be desired!!! Save your money and go elsewhere. We dined at Merrimans the next night and MUCH BETTER!!!

Mama’s had been recommended as a must do in Maui and it did not disappoint. The Maui mahi was fabulous. I tried my friends ceviche and it was great as well. The restaurant is a bit pricy but so is everything in Maui. The location is spectacular. I was lucky enough to be seated by the window and had a fabulous view.

We went out to dinner every night for a week, choosing the highest rated restaurants on Maui. Out of all of them, Mama's had the absolute best food without question. Was it expensive? Yes, but really not more than the other 5-Star restaurants and it was worth every penny!

We had a wonderful dinner at Mama’s Fish House. Great ambiance, impeccable service, delicious food. My only concern is the price. It is quite expensive. The place was packed so obviously that isn’t a problem. I just find it amazing people will repeatedly spend that much for a meal when you need to eat again the next day.
