We had an anniversary lunch at Mama’s and it was fabulous! We had the Grandma’ shrimp won ton appetizer and mama’s stuffed fish and both were excellent! The view of the ocean was fantastic and the restaurant was super clean and well decorated. Best place...More

I have to start by saying that Mamas had been on my bucket list for quite some time, and I had always heard great things from friends who have been going for years. Even with that to consider my expectations were exceeded. I went with...More

I love Mama’s. The location is perfect, right on a small, pristine bay. The building is too cool to describe. I love eclectic, funky stuff and Mama’s building and decor is unmatched. The food is even more incredible. Everything is beyond great. The crab cakes...More

This is a Maui mainstay. The atmosphere and service is unparalleled and the food amazing. Very expensive, but worth it. I highly recommend the “Pau Hana” cocktail!

The whole place and the setting is picture perfect, literally. You’ll end up taking a handful of pictures on their private beach while you wait for your table. The decor is like you stepped into a postcard your grandma sent you when her rotary club...More

It is a very busy restaurant so it is a good idea to book a table. Be sure to order seafood as this is really their speciality. Very tasty food with special flavours.

I have eatwn and experienced some fantastic meals in my life time. MAMAS SIMPLY WAS THE BEST EVER. From the servace to the atmosphere to our waitress. The meal was complex, simply and invredible. I would fly back to Maui just for the dinner.

Not to my knowledge. I did notice some people sharing entrees. Drinks ranch from $12-$20 and desserts about $16 on average. I hope this helps.

The best place is by the windows facing the ocean. The view is spectacular. Hopefully, you are eating when there is still some sunlight, so you can enjoy the view. Hard to see the ocean in the dark.
