This was our best dining experience over the course of 3 weeks and 5 Hawaiian islands. Everything was superb - service, atmosphere, drinks and dining. And I say this about an evening that was a torrential downpour - the experience inside Mama's was sublime. The cocktails were sophisticated, inventive, top quality and very tasty. Our appetizers of Kaui clams and... More

Seafood was cooked perfectly. Waiter was pleasant but not particularly conversant, considering the cost of the food. Does not compare in service to the Kai Restaurant in Phoenix. However, we would not let a introvert spoil an, otherwise, great meal and perfect location. We also saw a large turtle on the beach. Recommended if you don't mind the blahh service.

My wife and I have been travelling the world for six years now. 5 continents and 34 countries. Mama's rates as one of the top restaurants we have visited. The location, ambiance, menu and cuisine was outstanding. What made the experience even better was our server Jenni, she listened and took the time to make our evening special. Thank you... More

We celebrated a friend's mom's 97th birthday here while we visited the Island. The food was fantastic, so was the view.

It's hard to meet expectations at a restaurant with a great reputation but Mama's did. Venue is much different from what can be seen from the road, great ambiance to go with exceptional food and service. Yes, it is pricey but not unreasonable.

We celebrated our anniversary last week at Moma's and had a wonderful experience. The service and food were both fantastic! Heather, our waitress, couldn't have been any better. She was super friendly, attentive and helpful. My mom has significant food allergies and she was extremely helpful in making sure that my mom's needs were met. All of our food, from... More

The setting, practically smack on the beach, is stunning. The building itself is beyond unique. The menu is like no other. They have local fishermen dedicated to providing quality fish to Mama's (and are even identified on the menu). We spotted at least 2 newlyweds couples as well as couples young and older. It's a very romantic spot and the... More

I had a co-worker tell me, "While you're in Maui, go to Mama's Fish House for dinner." Hmmm, okaaayyyyy...since I grew up around all the rivers and lakes in northern Alabama, I didn't see this as a WOW factor...boy, do I owe my co-worker an APOLOGY!!! If you ever decide to fly countless hours on a plane, jammed into a... More

A group of 3 couples, we decided to go to Mama's for our big splurge while on vacation. We had booked weeks in advance to make sure we could get in. Our server, Keala, was entertaining as well as a great server. This was also a birthday celebration for me, so the restaurant sent out a specially prepared dessert for... More

We enjoyed our lunch here very much. Food was delicious and the service is top notch. The view can't be beat. While it is expensive, it was worth it! Front desk staff could be a bit more friendly or welcoming but wait staff more than made up for it. Views are amazing and there are some great photo ops on... More
