Fine dining in quality and price (high).

Mama's Fish House is reputed to be one of two fine dining establishments in Maui (according to people we met there; the other is Morimotos -- but someone told us that Morimotos will cost you an arm, leg and the whole body). Mama's Fish House was pricey, although $210 (including gratuity & three... read more

Heard so many rave reviews of this place that we had to try it. Seafood dish selections were excellent and the food was very good. Had the Mahi Mahi stuffed with crab and shrimp which was excellent. The other dish we had was the Ahi with pork friend rice which was also great. The beach adjacent to the restaurant is... More

We had lunch at Mama's Fish House just outside of Paia on Maui, and it was definitely one of the highlights of our trip! First off, MAKE RESERVATIONS!!! Second, be prepared for a whopper of a bill - but it's worth it! Our waiter was not only very professional and capable, he was entertaining, informative and pleasant. The food itself... More

Tips: Make a reservation, dress nicer than you would going to the beach(no tank tops allowed for men), be prepared to spend $40+ per person, don't worry about parking valet is free, and take some extra time to take photos on the beach out front. Heard from many people that we had to go here while in Maui. We had... More

Made reservations cause it was highly recomended. Our reservation was prompt and ready when we showed up. Staff was very friendly courteous and knowledgeable about the food. Expect it to be a bit pricey but well worth it. We had the best calamari apetizers ($18), and House specialty which was a stuffed mahimahi with crab and lobster($57) which was delicious.... More

We took our grown children & grandchildren on a cruise. The grown children took us took Mama's fish house for dinner. Amazing restaurant scenery and food! They made reservations months ago and it was a surprise for us! Elegant dinner and great company! We wanted them to have a memory and they gave us one too! If we get back... More

We love Mama's Fish House...the food is always superb even though the prices are always high, the quality is beyond compare. However, as with many restaurants on Maui, the restaurant does not take reservations for parties larger than 8. I understand that if there are too many large parties I suppose, so we booked two separate tables under two separate... More

If you are on Maui, like fish and have credit cards Mama's is a must. The setting is beautiful, the service is friendly and often flawless and the food is sublime. I try hard to find fault with this gem but wind up applauding the food dining experience they provide each and every time. We've eaten here at least 5... More

If you have to have the spectacular atmosphere combined with presentation and quality then brace yourself for the price. It's a must once but my 13 trips to Maui from 7-10 days have taught me that there are holes that have spectacular fish/grub Without the extra $ like Okazuya/Honokawai deli in Kahana
