Our friends had never dined their before although they have been coming to Maui for over twenty years. We enjoyed cocktails during a short wait to get seated for our 2:00 PM reservation. Floral arrangements were... More

Mama's is our Maui must-have when we visit and you will walk away saying this is one of the best meals you've ever had. The fish is fresh, caught by local fishermen and prepared perfectly. My favorite is the... More

A worthy stop but a little price gougie on drinks and salads. They accommodated my wife being a vegitarian by spicing up her tempur. The setting is unbelievable and surroundings are worth the bit extra that you'll pay.

This restaurant was recommended to us by a lady from our car rental. She lives near this restaurant and highly recommended it. The food was absolutely wonderful and fresh. I had an ahi Tuna salad that was amazing. There is a view of the ocean from inside the restaurant.

We have been to Mamas fish house at least twice , every time we come to Maui. We started this ritual 20 years ago and being a foodie ,Mamas fish house is one of the main reasons we go back to Maui every year.It has stayed consistently great over the last 20 years that we have visited.

Fantastic restaurant with a beautiful view. The staff was knowledgeable and very friendly. I must admit that I expected a tourist trap, but I was very wrong. It was the best meal we had while in Maui. The traditional Hawaiian platter was amazing. Make reservations well in advance .

We had a lot of good food in Maui, and Mama's was right at the top of the list. It is so big and crowded we were fearful that our experience was going to be like eating at Cinderella's castle at the Magic Kingdom - all show and no go on the food. We were wrong. The food was outstanding,... More
