Had a wonderful lunch with my daughter. The setting is awesome, and the fish was delish. I had the Opakapaka special, sautéed with mac nuts and served with a lilikoi butter sauce. The Mahimahi was also beautifully prepared and each was perfectly cooked. Also shared a crab cake app, which was good, but not remarkable. Best of this visit was... More

Mama's came highly recommended and a must-do during our babymoon in Maui. We were able to get an early reservation to see the sunset, however you can't really see the sunset. Not a big deal though because the ambiance is great. It feels almost chain-y though with tons of pics of celebs on the walls when you come in. Service... More

I've eaten in some fine restaurants over the years, but this may be the best ever. My sister and I were staying in Kula and decided to splurge. It was a last minute decision, with no reservation, but even at 3 p.m. on a weekday, the only place that had a table was the lounge, at the back of the... More

Mama's Fish House may be the best restaurant on Maui ! It is not easy to get to from most of the tourist hotles and condos, but well worth the trip. Located about 1 mile past Paia on the North side. Get reservations and directions ahead of time. This is a hidden gem of the island with mainly fresh fish... More

Mama’s fish house has a reputation as an excellent restaurant. We wondered if it would live up to the hype. It’s outstanding! We had 6 adults in our party and all 6 agreed at the end of our vacation that the best food and the best service! were at Mama’s. The fish was fresh and deliciously prepared. The view of... More
