It's pricey, but worth the hype. Great drinks and fresh fish. Well prepared. Had lunch there and enjoyed spectacular views.

Everyone I know who has been to Maui said that this place was a must! I took my picky Mom there and even she was very happy with her fish! Yes it is costly but I think it's well worth it. The food was absolutely delicious and the menu changes daily because the fish is that fresh. The restaurant is... More

The view was great, the hostess, bartender, & valets were very professional & friendly but our waiter not so much. He was very abrupt & really didn't seem to care about making our experience pleasant. I really think he may have forgot to place our order. I don't think 45 minutes for an appetizer is acceptable. I was really looking... More

How often have you been at a restaurant whose front yard (which you all look at) is a 100 meter long beach with some of the best (looking) surf on Maui? We were in the third "row" of tables back from the view, but clever placement of our booth ensured we had a great view throughout our meal. The food... More

The view...the food....the black pearl dessert....the interior of the building...the workmanship with the wood. I give this place an eleven! Excellence and it feels so cozy and comfy. It was very windy the night we were there but beautiful. Love watching the ocean.

I have been to Maui more than a dozen times and this was my first visit to Mama's Fish house. What in the world was I waiting for all these years. The minute you pull up to the valet you know you're in for a treat. The venue is spot on as you can watch the waves crash in on... More

The food was very good but Lahaina grill has better food. If you're planning to go there make sure to book your table at sunset because views are spectacular ! We thought the valet staff were not very welcoming for a fine dining restaurant. We ordered three fish sashimi that was good and mama fish house ceviche for appetizers that... More
