Great location, expensive, ok service, food was nothing to write home about. Easy to find, go early, make reservations in advance. Just up the road you can stop to see the giant sea turtles coming in for the evening.

We visited Mama's for lunch as soon as we arrived on Maui, pretty much based on all the rave reviews this restaurant has received over the years, earning it the reputation of being one of the best restaurants not only in Hawaii, but in the...More

Not much more that I can say than what others have said about this place. Believe the hype! If you have not gone here, definitely put it on your to-go place. We ate here for lunch one afternoon in early April, and had a fantastic...More

This was by far one of the BEST dining experiences we have had in Hawaii. Friends have told us about it, and we tried to make reservations (which are really needed) at this restaurant. We still had 5 days left in Maui, and tried to...More

The food was amazing. I had the stuffed fish - which by itself would have been delicious, but then they added lobsters and crab and blew my mind. Beware the cocktails. Beware. My first drink went down a little too smoothly, and the second drink,...More

Look it up...it’s ranked and for good reason. Absolutely the best quality in every dish. I usually write long reviews however short and concise is best suited in this case. Expect no less than $200 per couple with specialty (wonderful) cocktail. Do not skip this...More

The food, service and surroundings here are top notch. Went there for lunch (reservations needed) cost is about $65 per person without drinks.

As we drove past this restaurant in search of some turtles napping on the beach, we decided we would return later and have lunch here. Little did we realize it would turn out to be a fine dining experience with valet parking to boot! We...More

By far the best meal we had in Maui! The service in off the chart top notch and the food was simply to die for! If you come to Maui you MUST eat at Mama's Fish House,

The food was really good. If you’re going for the lobster do yourself a favour and get the steak and lobster and not the two lobster tails. Service was great. Only reason it’s four star is due to the over-priced mediocre drinks.

First, be sure to get a reservation or you probably won't be able to eat at Mama's. Second, Kihel to Hana is a full day without stopping for lunch at a nice restaurant like Mama's. There are several sandwich shops that offer... More
