Our lunch was freshly caught opah, perfectly prepared. We also tried several appetizers, all incredibly fresh, and prepared with an island touch. It was one of the best meals I've had in a very long time. Even the poi (which I consider an acquired taste)...More

We own a condo on Maui and had not yet visited Mama's Fish House. Now we will go back every time we are on the Island. First of all, they give you this wonderful bread and a little cup of soup, so we didn't need...More

Six of us had lunch. Lovely weather, amazing view, wonderful service. The Panang curry was particularly good. The fresh fish dishes were well prepared. The chocolate pearl dessert was very tasty. I had a hibiscus rum ginger beer drink that was quite nice. We’ve had...More

Best on the island without question. We met people that go here after getting off the plane before checking into their hotel so we had to try it. Upscale type restraint so no bathing suits allowed. Food and service are excellent as are the views....More

Best thing about this restaurant is the location and its view. Food was good, even great but it is so overpriced it is ridiculous. There are better places on Maui for food without having to fight the crowd at this place. Been there once, would...More

We recently dined at Mama's to celebrate our anniversary while vacationing in Maui. We had a lovely table overlooking the beach and enjoyed watching the windsurfers while waiting for our meal. The restaurant is eclectic with beautiful woodwork throughout the interior, perfect for a special...More

We were not a rehearsal dinner. Two couples on vacation together. Will likely go back just to have dinner there even if visiting another island. That's how much we love place.
