We were staying in Kapalua, which was an hour drive to Mama's Fish House, but totally worth it. The restaurant is open and airy with beautiful views of the ocean. We highly recommended as the food was outstanding - especially the house special (Mama's Stuffed Fish) and the King Salmon. For appetizers, we loved the seared beef tenderloin and kula avocado and crab guacamole. We will definitely come back on our next trip.

Please note we made our reservations 3 months in advance to get an early dinner, as we had an hour drive to/from the restaurant.

We were highly recommended to come here as it is considered one of the best restaurants in Maui. The food was good but we were unsure if we would’ve enjoyed the meal if we were less exhausted. The food is good and the details in their menu is great but the prices are very high. We assume the costs are higher due to the labor of fresh daily catch. The menu changes daily so you never know what the menu will be.

Recommendation: For those wanting to try the restaurant make reservations far in advance to get a time you’d want. We made our reservations about 2-3 weeks ahead and ended up with a later dinner time. By the time we were done it was past 10.

Stayed in Kaanapali and had a 30 minute drive to Mama's. Totally worth it, and we're not fancy dinner people. The site is amazing, there is a little sandy area for the kids. The crab cakes we're great, the sashimi appetizer was a little light for the price. Dinner was not cheap, but very good amount especially for a fancy place. Worth the trip if you're going to have a special dinner.

Make your reservations as soon as possible it is a very popular place! Food is great, expensive but worth the splurge! The view is fabulous!

Outstanding deserts and very good (although not the best) fish - I give them that. Service’s been good for the most part - until they start rushing you out around deserts. I got it the place is way overbooked, yet, this is not my problem. I would’ve gladly eaten somewhere else rather than been “timed out”.
