Food was excellent but overpriced... service, not so much. Our male server obviously didn't think we would be good tippers so he pretty much ignored us, interacting and explaining menu items much more thoroughly with other tables. Been there, done that... wouldn't go back.

Everyone said to go..:my husband's steak was overlooked, my prawns were miniature, they couldn't find our car in valet....NOTHING spectacular at all. Stay close to your hotel and don't spend the money on a $60 piece of 3 oz fish

You need a reservation so start planning way in advance. Visited for lunch - this place has service down. The food is great. I would hate to recommend anything for the menu changes daily. Our waiter Jonathan was great. Loved the Mai Tais and The Guava Strawberry fizz. Leave room for dessert, the apple banana cobbler is great too.

From the ambiance to the exceptional service Mama's was once again a fabulous experience. All our dishes were wonderful, definitely the best food we had all week. Put it at the top of your list

Great spot for a special occasion. Had the fish curry and it was very flavorful. Pricey but it doesn't disappoint.

Went with friends today for lunch, same menu as dinner, and everyone's everything was fantastic. Food, service, the place itself, and the overall feel. Expensive but worth it. Will come back every time I come to Maui!

Everyone that we told we were going to Maui for our honeymoon told us that Mama's Fish House was a must see. I can't remember any other time one restaurant was recommended so universally so obviously we had to try it. Tried making a dinner time reservation two weeks out from our trip but found that all they had available... More

Beautiful view, excellent food-Server was nice but a little un-attentive after we were initially seated. Make sure to reserve early. We called one week before to reserve for evening and learned no dinner times available for at least two weeks. We did lunch at 11:15 am - still nice

Thank Brenda M
